People's lodge - located right in the center of Banaue near the market. The rooms are quite clean and there's hot water which is a rare thing in this area. The sheets were clean and even had a good smell. Bad thing about this place is that its located right above the street and the walls are the opposite of... More

Very old, basic rooms with no plug sockets! All charging (and wifi access) must be done in the restaurant upstairs which is annoying. Cheap but you get what you pay for. Food is ok but not great. Good location in town but they shut the main door around 9pm and seem very unhappy if you want to stay out later... More

The restaurant serves the food so fast and so tasty. People of the hotel are also so charming and friendly. They have also lodging that you can stay for a cheaper and alternative. The view of the restaurant also nice.

This place wasn't very nice! I think we paid 400-500 pesos each from a private room. The room itself was ok, comfyish beds and clean but the toilet was gross. Not unclean but it was like a prison cell. The shower was broken and in the same room as the toilet which was tiny! The staff didn't understand much and... More

The only positive thing about this place is the price witch is ok. 200pesos. But i would rather pay 50-100pesos more for a nice and friendly staff. If you ask them something they would never answer you with a smile. NEVER. They close the main-door at 9pm, and if you want to go in after that they will yell at... More

We can't address the hotel but based on the restaurant we wouldnt stay here. We were dropped off here by the free shuttle we were bundled into after the overnight Ohayami bus from Manila. Before, during, and after the marginal breakfast we were hounded by a guide and we allowed ourselves to be suckered into an overpriced minivan to the... More

Very basic hostel: rooms have beds and tables. not more. There are no sockets in the rooms. Phones, tablets etc have to be charged in the reception/restaurant. Reason: "guests charge their mobile phone which may catch fire." What a stupid explanation !! Touts hanging around in this hostel to offer overpriced tours. People's Lodge is just ok for one night,... More

We spend about 3 weeks on the Philippines and this was the most "basic" room that we had. It was absolutely overpriced, pretty damp and generally in a very bad state but the bed was comfortable and they provided thick blankets against the cold. And since we came with the night bus from Manila and were very tired, we basically... More

The owner was nice, it's just that the room price isn't reasonable. A bit expensive for a basic room that doesn't even have a female outlet/receptacle inside. You have to go to the common living room and plug your phones and other gadgets. Some rooms has awesome view though

We stayed here because the Sanafe was booked. I don't think I have ever received such horrible service in my life at a hotel. Firstly, this place is VERY basic. It is about 16USD a night, which seems grossly overpriced for the hole in the wall concrete room that you get with cold showers. (They say they have hot showers,... More
