Stayed here for a weekend with a couple of friends. Great staff --super friendly and accommodating, but the place itself was just okay. Clean and comfortable rooms, clean and working toilets and shower, decent kitchen, and nice hang out area, but don't expect to get much sleep. The pillows could be a little softer and the unsolicited wake up call made by the neighbors and their pet bird so early in the morning can be really annoying. The place also has a subtle, not so pleasant, damp smell (the hostel having been built on stilts on what probably used to be a nice shoreline) that may be uncomfortable to people who are really sensitive to smells. I hope that in the future, the hostel could work with the neighbors to clean up the surrounding area a little bit, to get rid of the smell and also help the environment.
Anyway, if you're just visiting Coron for on a really tight budget and aren't prissy, this would be a very good option. The rooms rates are really cheap and you can cook your own meals to save even more money. The hang out area also makes it really easy to meet other guests, so you could maybe even plan out and split costs when it comes to the tours you want to do.
