I stayed one night in that backpackers and then went out for dinner. The next day I checked my money and I was missing 1.000 pesos from my room. I know it was the staff because the night we pay in advance at the reception they saw the bag where I had my money and I didn't touch that bag... 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.

This is the place tp stay for backpackers, it has cheap rooms (the dorms are one big room with some fans, not quite enough for escaping the heat...), a good location- a walking distance to most of the dive shops, friendly helpful staff, and a nice balcony to relax. I enjoyed it.

This hostel is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. It's a great place with wonderful people. The staff is always there to help and take care of the guests. I have been here several times and I'm planning to go back there soon. I miss the atmosphere and the receptionist, Analou, who makes the best BBQ's you have... More

Having the rooms booked in advance, we were delighted to have checked-in really fast. We never waited in line nor never had to look for other accomodations in the area. You really get what you pay for. The rooms are cozy and warm, and the amenities are excellent. However, there is a certain negative vibe around the general area of... More

I stayed here for 4 nights while diving. This place is great but bear in mind this is a Bag packer's place. The dorms are OK, I had no chance to get a good sleep as the whole area is very noisy. It's kept quite clean and the Staff is great, friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a cheap... More

We stayed here for 4 or 5 nights in dec. Through our travels. Location was perfect, amazing snorkeling across the road- . You can also dive right there too. We snorkeled everyday and always saw something new. Not the best location to just swim as its all coral pretty much from the beach out. However extremely close to another beach... More
