“Relax and unwind”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

What an ideal location to chill out for a week or three. The guesthouse consists of a dormitory and a private room (shared bathroom) with a hot water shower after 6pm. The beds are big and mosquito nets are supplied. Towels and toiletries are also supplied free of charge.

Free access to the kitchen which is well stocked with utensils and pans.

Located at the beginning of the town, just a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach. The owners (Phillipp and Roxy) are very helpful and instantly make you feel at home. They will also ensure that you don't miss the bus when it's time to leave.

The electricity in Port Barton only comes on from 6pm to midnight, hence the hot shower after 6pm. There is only 1 bus a day leaving for Puerto Princessa at 9am ish. Wifi is available when the electricity is on but if you need it urgently there are a few restaurants in town that have generators.

A wide choice of guitars are available for you to strum your days away on the hammock accompanied by the monkeys, cats and ducks.

You can book your stay with hostelworlds.. I just turned up and had no problem.

Please be aware that as with most properties in this area, neighbours have chickens and dogs.. if you are a light sleeper and are staying anywhere in Port Barton, bring ear plugs.

“Monkey Family”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Excellent small friendly low cost restaurant on the edge of the town. They have a range of foods from pizza to classic filipino meals. Some nights there is a group of young local people playing music (on request too). The diners may join in too. They have simple inexpensive rooms too.
