We went to check in at Ocean 101 for a few nights because friends say its cheap and has the best value than anywhere else in the Island. Upon arriving at Siargao airport we were lucky that we had a free ride going to Ocean 101 because since there were other guests on the way there as well. We checked in and then we had a front view to the beach which was really nice but for the value of the room that we stayed in was not that bad but i think its kind of expensive because the room is very simple and nothing much was inside, of course we all know that it is a backpackers place but every small detail counts. We got the room with a shared bathroom at first we thought that the bathroom was upstairs but then to our surprise we found out that the bathroom was downstairs beside the kitchen which is kind of weird in a way where you have to go downstairs to pee or do your thing while on the other side of the bathroom is where people cook and their frontdesk is there and the restaurant where people spend most of their time. Also to add up, we were so honest about losing our key and they charged us 1500php just for losing a key while you can not even lock the room because you can not close the windows but thankfully one guest found our key,also they have to copy the keys instead of charging the guests so much. Else everything is okay with the rest of our trip at Siargao and our stay. Ocean 101 can be the best for others but i think the place is just ok.
