Really enjoyed the stay here. For 800 pesos we got a room with a double bed and hot shower. Simple but worth it. The restaurant has nice food for cheap prices compared to many other places. 110 pesos for pancit, or if you are a fan of pasta, 150 for a bacon carbonara. Very friendly and helpful staff who allowed... More

This has to be one of the best places to stay when visiting Banaue. The view is breath taking the staff from the owner all the way down are always helpful and friendly it's like a home away from home. I would highly recommend staying at the Sanafe lodge. The rooms are comfortable and the entire place is always clean... More

We didn't book in advance so we slept in both the deluxe and the basic room. Both rooms perfect for the price. Food ok and good service! Our bus to manila departed in the night and we could store our luggage and get a shower. Owner is always laughing so good vibes and amazing view!!

We stayed here for 5 nights. We had booked in advance & were glad we had, as they seemed to be fully booked almost all the time. There are reasons for that: great service, location, food, spectacular views from dining area, helpful connections to guides & tours (Arnold & Joel), & wonderful hospitality offered by host Susan & her staff!

I stayed with a group of friends for 2 nights at Sanafe lodge and we occupied 3 rooms (two Deluxe and one Standard). The rooms provide the basic amenities, a quite comfortable bed, a working shower with somewhat warm water and a shower curtain (both not standard in that category in the Philippines). Deluxe rooms and standard rooms are not... More

I am a solo backpacker, and I was plesently surprised to find this cheap dormitory in Banaue. Although not advertised since I was the only one in the dorm, and the hotel is obviously geared more towards couples on a romantic get away, I enjoyed the homey cabin feel and the gorgeous terrace. The staff I also found extremely helpful.... More

Apologies for the delayed review, but here it goes. We generally chose this accommodation due to its good reviews and great views of the town. This lodge is not hard to locate since its located at the center of the town just beside the market and near the i guess public terminal. Since the lodge's check in time is XX:XX... More

The lodge has a great view from the restaurant area and it has some of the better food in town. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms basic but pretty clean. Like most places round here there aren't and power points in the rooms. I did find a power point in the room at the far left of the... More
