We had a night here knowing fully that it was a shared bathroom budget choice. Patrik was friendly and helpful. It is on the water at high tide but otherwise is on stilts over mangrove mud flats, as are all the buildings along the Coron waterfront area. The guesthouse is in the middle of a village area a few mins walk from the market, and has just 4 rooms with two bathrooms, male/female. Towels were provided, and the rooms are small (about 20 inches around the bed on 2 sides) with a fan and shelf.
The guesthouse is very noisy - not only the morning noise you would expect in SE Asia (cock crows, motorbikes, early risers etc), but extra noise through the thin bamboo walls of (whilst we were there) a portable sawmill outside that started at 5am, a very loud blaring stereo playing 80's soft rock from dawn onwards, and noise from other guests in their rooms, on the deck outside, and from the TV lounge, from dawn till 12 midnight.
A good budget choice for 550 pesos, but not if you need more than 6 hours sleep per night.
