We selected the "top" reviewed hotel in Kalibo as we did not want to arrive late at night at Boracay. Gald we did, others who travelled through after arriving on Tiger flight from Singapore arrived at Boracay only at 8pm ! Service: Staff are totally blur about booking, about where to eat. Did not tell us that the hot water... More

I paid around £30 for a standard room and wash't expecting much but the hostel definitely fell far short of my expectations. The staff were quite unhelpful and the room felt dirty. I was told about free Wifi but none was available until I pestered the front desk. After 15 hours of flying I was hoping for something a little... More

For the first three nights of my stay with my boss, we were given the big room on the ground floor. Room was very nice since it is very spacious (heck, even the CR is very spacious!) so you don't get the feeling of being cramped up. Plus, it is so warm and cozy so you're guaranteed a good night's... More

Due to a change in airline schedule, we were forced to stay overnight in Kalibo and we found this hostel thru the internet. We made reservations by phone and we were accommodated. The room is big and clean, the air conditioner was a bit old and noisy but works fine. The hostel has an emergency generator (which was a good... More

My friends and I stayed at this hotel/hostel from November 7 to 12 after our trip to Boracay. We had originally planned to spend 3 days in Kalibo after our 5-day Boracay vacation in order to enjoy the sights and places in the Aklanon city. Of course, we had not anticipated the arrival of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan and "got wind" of... More

Planned a side trip to Kalibo on our way to Boracay and wanted a place that was centrally located, safe, and with affordable rates. Festival Hostel met all our needs. We stayed in a deluxe room which more resembled a hotel rather than hostel since we wanted a private washroom; it was spacious and included a/c, wifi, tv, fridge, and... More

The name itself states that it is a hostel so don't expect any frills from this place. It is located in the center of town near the public market.
