We stayed for one night but we didn't sleep at all. We spent the night in the launge sitting in a bench full of TERMITES because our room (and the rest of the place) was absolutelly full of THE BIGEST CUCARACHAS I EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! In the ceiling, walls, floor, RUNING IN THE BED, etc. Also was poorly raining so the place turned TERRIBLE SMELLY... Sheets, towels and etc were so dirty too and I'm not going to speak about the toilet... Also to get in the place you have to walk in a unsafe wood flor (pieces are falling) and there's rubbish everywhere... After being siting all night long we told to the lady that we were not going to pay the whole amount because we didn't use the room at all, but we could pay for being under her ceiling. That was even bad for our health and totally unacceptable. She was rude and angry saying that why we didn't left. We said that it was a dangerous area in the middle of the night and raining so much (no stopping). She shouted said is not her problem and she is not letting us go. So we just left, what a terrible place it is. I regret of not taking pictures for you guys that are cheking this place.

We staid for two nights at Coron backpackers, the place is located in Coron city near all restaurants and bars. The place is very simple which did not bothered us as we were expecting less comfort than usual. We felt safe and the staff is super friendly and helpful. We just asked for some info and book a island hoping tour and we got it for the day after. As well the guesthouse organised the trip to the airport. WIFI is great and the signal quite steady. Bathroom and kitchen are clean as well as the bedsheets which for us was essential. Negative points of the location is the smell from the trash outside brought by the tide everyday so this accommodation was good for two nights only.

Hi, i'm not complicated for hostels, but here there was a big cockroach which run under my bed when i came back to sleep. I know this can happened, but coupled with the very swampy odor of the room and creepy sounds during the night (like Rats fight), my night was horrible I don't understand good opinion on this hostel, i didn't see any traveler in it. i don't recommend this hostel.

We arrived at 4am and this was no problem even though we hadn't given any warning of this. The staff were nice and everything was very clean. It was quite noisey at night as the walls are very thin so you can hear everything. The wifi mostly didnt work and the eletrics were questionable at best. As there's a pool of water below the building there was at times an odd smell.

I like the ambiance at Coron Back Packers and the staff is nice. Also you get a fan room for 550 php at the town center which isn’t bad at all. However you also get to stay on top of a stagnant and at times rather smelly pool of water. Due to the ultra thin walls you also get to listen in on your neighbors whether you want it or not or wether they are drinking until late despite the quiet time from 10 pm or whether they are quarreling or are doing what couples might due at night time. You also get a very dodgy electrical wiring. Most importantly I liked the fact that I saved money on accommodation which I spent on diving instead. Diving should be the reason why you are in Coron in the first place.
