First night sleeping in a private, seperate room on "backyard" was perfect. Then moved to communal sleeping area, room very next to street, which was awful. There is a pool on the opposite side of the road, (other hotel's pool) which generator kept on running with a big noise for the most of the time. Also a "red light bar"... More

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!

We had the bungalow at the back with private bathroom. Staff and owner do their best to make you feel at home. There is a kitchen you can use with is great because the Philippino food is errrr..... Not so good ;) There is a relax area where you can meet other backpackers and the place is clean and well... More

I went to Moalboal for 5 nights, staying here for 4. The dorm rooms were cheap (250) and I was in a room that adjoined the dorm with one other bed in it for 300P. 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
