“A haven for budget travelers”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

As most places in el nido are overpriced, i'm very happy i came across this place
Ok, the rooms are very basic, just a bed, a table, a safe box, a few hooks, a couple of power plugs, a fan...but spotlessly clean! And anyways, did you come all the way to el nido to sit in your room? I didn't think so!
The staff is very friendly, free drinking water and coffee and tea is provided, and here's the big bonus, unseen in this price category, the breakfast buffet, with the western classics like bread and french toast and pancakes and eggs, but also various cooked filipino dishes, and the menu changes every day!
I stayed here for nearly a week and totally loved it, there's a good vibe, and it's easy to meet fellow travelers, on the relaxing common balcony...there is also free wifi but as elsewhere in el nido the power only comes on around 2 pm, and lasts till 6 am (but take into account additional brownouts during that time)
By the way, room rates are listed at the reception but feel free to bargain, substantial discounts are given

I found Austrias Place after roaming the streets for a while looking for a cheap but friendly place to stay for a few days.. and it was a real winner!
The brightly yellow & green painted building is wooden above a beautiful little garden area, and has plenty of chill-out spaces: a lovely balcony out front, plus a airy terrace area on the first floor where they serve breakfast in the mornings. The rooms are basic (but hey - who spends much time in their rooms except for sleeping?), the wifi reasonably good for El Nido, the hot breakfast buffet super-generous (Filipino style breakfast.. and amazing pancakes!), but what Austrias really sets apart is the staff - every single one of them is lovely and goes out of their way to help you! Especially thanks to Rhea, Cherell & Dessa (who's an awesome cook!! :-), who made me feel a friend rather than a guest
I warmly recommend this place and will definately stay again if back in El Nido!!!
