Moalboal Backpackers is run by really lovely, friendly women; the rooms and common areas are very clean, and the common area upstairs is a perfect hangout place with very comfy hammocks you can lie in on a rainy day. They provide their guests with towels that you can take diving with you, which is great, and there's a place to... More

Great location, friendly and helpful staff and great atmosphere. The dorm beds are comfy, there's a kitchen for cooking and a lovely chill out area with comfy chairs and hammocks. It's perfect for budget travellers and a great place to meet people and socialise. It's very popular so you might want to book ahead!

Great place. Was not expecting that I'd get a great room for only P350 per night. I arrived late and the front desk personnel waited for me even if it was past there closing time. Highly reccomended for budget travelers and backpackers!

Not so good ;) There is a relax area where you can meet other backpackers and the place is clean and well... More

Just had diff people to share with each night. Had a fan, comfy enough. Lots of chilled, social backpackers- mainly divers- good Id you want... More

We had room a the back that had it's own bathroom, table and chairs, a fan, mosquito net over the bed, electric kettle, and a hammock. The room was cheap, basic, quiet, and relaxing. The lodge is located along the main strip of hotels, cafes, and restaurants. Tricycles are readily available if you want to somewhere. The staff were very... More

It was pretty good and the price was fair. Luckily there were not so many people when i was here otherwise i think it would have been crowded. Owners was nice and room was basic. I didnt love the location coz it is right on the street which is the worst place to be for peace n quiet. Good for... More

It's ideal for backpackers or travelers on a budget. The bathrooms are clean. The staff is friendly and they're very helpful. It's accessible to most the dive shops there. Staying there was a good experience.
