This hostel is not a party hostel so you can really feel peaceful during your stay. There's a free breakfast every day and a complimentary water refill in the common area which made my stay even more amazing. I definitely recommend this place to people who work remotely as the internet and data signal is reliable.

Budget friendy. The place is near the alona beach, walking distance. A good place if you are just looking for a normal room. You can try their grilled foods at night. They have a free breakfast starting at 7am.

I stayed in a double room which has 1 double bed, air-con, and spacious bathroom. The room was clean especially the bathroom. All were basic but the design of the room and the premises made it extra. I only stayed for 1 night since I was just looking for a cheap place near the airport. It was 10 to 15 mins drive from Panglao International Airport. Also, 10 to 15 mins walk to Alona Beach. The place is just along the highway and easy to find, no need to enter some narrow road or something. The people here were very accommodating. They provide service with a smile. I happen to have rented a car and the lady owner remove her car for me to be able to park beside the premises since parking spaces here near Alona are very limited. My stay is with free breakfast. They also offer some grilled foods at night which is really tasty for me. So you don't have to go out for dinner. I would definitely come back here and I recommend this place to solo travellers (since they also offer dormitories) or even couples for cheap stay but comfortable. I also commend their service. You can check booking.com for cheaper rates than walking in.

Sorry, but we have Apologized Profusely Again and Again, and REFUNDED your money, but I apologize if you feel it's not enough. These bed bugs couldn't be controlled because they were also brought in by other travelers. We have undergone massive treatments, and many guests received cancellation requests from us during the quarantine. We have treated the room and changed the mattresses and we will continue to make sure that this never happens again. We hope that you will have more amazing adventures.

Their staff is pro active and nice. Compared to other resorts that we have been. Rustic accommodation and good for expats who likes to back pack. They also serve quite okay local food and is affordable.
