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

It's good value for money and is most likely the absolute cheapest accommodation you can find in Panagsama Beach area. Dorm beds are about 275 pesos/night. Can be a bit noisy at nights due to the balcony hangout area and bars trying to drum up business. Mostly clean, showers tend to flood though. Very central location.

Let's start with the good and end with the bad. GOOD: For a budget traveller, the price is right! The staff was exceptionally helpful and accommodating. We stayed in the Blue Gecko room which was a private room for two. It was spacious and clean. The staff even provided a jug of water and coffee upon our arrival. The location... More

This is a perfect place for people on a budget. It's cheap and has kitchen facilities, which we used a lot to save some money. There's a relaxed atmosphere, and the place is so small that you get to know every one there if you stay a few days. We had the private room on top of the reception, and... More

Spent 4 nights in this central located hostel i Moalboal. The staff is really sweet and helping, there's a nice relaxed atmosphere, and the fact that there's a kitchen and fridge you can use, just makes it a perfect place to stay if your on a tight budget.

Moalboal Backpacker Lodge was a perfect backpacker beach hostel, complete with cold water and mosquito nets on the beds. Though I lost (or maybe it was stolen, it is still a mystery) my IPod on the first day, it did not put a damper on my overall experience at the hostel. My overall experience at the hostel was great!

I loved staying here, but then again I love being stripped of luxuries when travelling. However, the two people I was with hated it for that same reason, so it really depends on what you're looking for. We stayed upstairs in the main dorm which is open plan to the rest of the hostel (I'd recommend this, it's much more... More
