No quiet hours. Was very loud and you can't escape the sound if you want to sleep. Don't come here if you want to sleep and dive. Only come if you want to party. People were up all night yelling and talking and playing music in the common room which is connected to the dorm with no door and is...

Dead center in the main strip, classic rustic beach dorm feel, and friendly staff. Big dorm upstairs with a chillout balcony with some private rooms in the back next to the shared kitchen. Loved my stay here and will definitely stay again next visit.

I can't understand how people rate this hostel so high. I was there for 3 nights last week, and yes, they have a chill out bamboo terrace, and lots of hammocks... But in the bamboo terrace there's space for less than 8 people, so it's not that great. And there are some things that for me are more important than...

Ideal hostel for backpackers and solo traveler. They have dorm type rooms and private rooms. Since I need a private space I occupied one of the private room. There's a common area with a good view of Pescador Island. Very near to the famous restaurants in Panagsama. Super friendly hosts and you can have friends both local and foreigners. So...

This hostel is the main place where backpackers stay on Panagasama Beach. Other hostels aren't as affordable or clearly publicized online, making this the easiest place to meet other people and the perfect atmosphere for chilling or pre gaming. I spent one week here to go diving and visit parts of Cebu Island.

I stayed with my partner in both private ensuite cottages, we enjoyed both of them. The Dragon cottage had two floors with a hammock up top (we loved that hammock so much), it was super well-ventilated since you could pretty much open up all the walls. Sometimes, you could catch a wicked sea breeze going through the place. Cons: the...

This place is good for solo travellers. I met a lot of people during my stay there. The beds are comfortable enough to sleep in. You have to bring your own padlock and locks so u can keep ur things in ome of their lockers.
