“Best hostel in Coron”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The place is really nice. Simple, clean and also cheap. Its a nice place to meet people since they have a common area for everyone. They also have a kitchen which is really handy if your on a tight budget. Location is good too. I also met the owner, really really nice person. He makes sure that everyone is having a great time and also makes an effort to talk to all the guests in the Hostel. I also heard from the staff that he treats them really nice. The staff too are very nice, very helpful and also very friendly. I love this place! One of my favorite hostels here in the Philippines :)

So we had to stay over in Coron for a couple of nights...this is the place...nothing fancy, to the point and perfect. The staff are great and fun, tuned in, turned on and with a cool vibe. On the west side of town 5 minutes walk away from the busy market area. Loved it. If you're looking for something simple but clean, efficient and friendly with a great vibe...this is it. Thanks guys and see you on Camiguin!

Room Tip: If you don't want the road noise get a room at the back of the house! Easy!

Great backpackers place to stay in Coron. Central. Clean. The staff are awesome. After 3 days here i didn't want to leave. Good place for solo travellers as there's a nice little bar / eating area and a really friendly vibe. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 6 is lovely and breezey

I enjoyed my stay here. The owner and staff were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean. It has a nice sunset view balcony. There is a clothes line there also - very useful after island hopping. This hostel also has a kitchen and a common area for backpackers to chill and hang out. During our stay, we were fortunate to get a free fire dancing show in the common area. One drawback is that the hotel is on the main road, so the traffic can be a bit loud but then again many hotels in the Coron town center have a similar problem.

i spent 10 days and 9 nights in this guesthouse and i m kinda sad to leave today. the rooms are very affordable, clean and the beds are huge! the can be used for free. downstairs is a chilled area so you can sit down and talk or have some drinks. even the toilets were clean every morning..
the staff is quiet friendly and when i had questions for some activities or places for diving , i got always good suggestions, so i enjoyed my time in coron a lot! the place is also very central so i didn't have to go that far to get to my diving center for example.. everything is walkable here.
if i ever come back to coron, this is my place to go.

i felt comfortable at marleys. the place is cement so u know its safe if a storm hits. the shared bathrooms are sufficient. the price is right. i got good sleep when i stayed there unlike other places that have paper thin walls. i rank it number 2 budget travel lodging in coron. it doesn't get much better than this, trust me i stayed at 5.

Clean rooms! Cozy atmosphere! Free kitchen!
Awesome owner and staff, their very friendly and easy to be with.

Very ideal for transient or backpacker guests. The rates are very cheap and you get great service and value for your money.
Highly recommended! I'm definitely coming back.
