It was a short trip for me in Moalboal as I was exploring Cebu. I stayed here for 2 nights and wish to stayed for another night. Unfortunately I didn't book for the 3rd day so no room available.

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

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
