Review by Traveloka users

3 Traveloka customers have stayed in this hotel and given reviews:

Overall the accommodation is very strategic as it is close to the El Nido beach. They are very accommodating for any needs. I highly encourage you book tours and transportation from them as they offer great discounts. For improvement, they should improve their bathroom facilities.
Generally it was a nice hostel friendly receptionist, situated in a very good location, air conditioning was also good. though, the building was a bit old already and smell of old wood was a bit annoying. bathroom door make a weird cracking sound but for a very cheap cost, this hostel is good.
Our entire stay was great and we had discounted tour packages. Hopefully they could improve their water system.

Not too bad
I booked this place for my first night in El Nido city. I like the street, quiet and not too far at all from the city about 5 mins walk to all the restaurants, bars, fruit juice bars, bakery etc. It's near to small shops where you can buy your snacks, mineral water, and everything else. There's a nearby pharmacy as well. And also a motor rental place that you can bargain their prices because this street is not too touristy. Not too bad of a view on the first floor. A view of a nearby limestone mountain nearby. Better than staying in the city for sure where there's no view and noisy. Rooms are ok. I mean that's what you get for paying 800peso/night. I took the fan room and it was surprisingly cold at night. Maybe because it was nearby the mountains. Only thing is, the toilet. Cleanliness was fine but the water flow was super slow so shower time was super slow as well. And their water has a certain smell to it. Metal iron smell like water. Overall, the room is just ok. A level where backpackers can service I'm sure. hahah! I just like the chill area outside on the first floor in the mornings. Quiet street and a view of nature. (almost)

This hostel is the worst ever. When we arrived the staff was so unfriendly and rude. They didn't care at all. The room was even worse. In the bed there was a disgusting blanket and the room smelled so bad. And it was the smell of mold. My friend coughed all the time while staying there. Our bags got mold on and now we are trying to clean our bags so the mold will disappear. We used the fan all the time because the mold was in the aircon. Our sheets and towels were dirty too and the bathroom was also disgusting. The water smelled so bad and we got some studs on our back because the water was so dirty. From the bottom of my heart: Don't book any rooms at this place!!!! If there are no hostels available anywhere else in El Nido and only at Alexzus then I will highly recommend that you'll wait till other hostels has a room available. P.S. wifi sucks at Alexzus.

Not the worst hostel, it's just basic
We spent two nights at this hostel this week. The rooms are very very basic and small but it's cheap and just about liveable. It's just old and tired smells a little old- we didn't want to spend any of our free time here let's just put it that way but it's just a bed to sleep in at the end of the day. Also the toilet seat had large cracks in all the way around. Yes the water does smell a little and is a little yellow ish but so is everywhere in El Nido, it was the same in some of the nicer guest houses we stayed in but the shower ran clear. You don't really need to use the tap other than washing hands we just used bottled water for tooth brushing to be on the safe side The staff could of been a little friendlier when checking in. The good things about this place Internet works really well- the only place we found in El Nido to have good internet Air con worked better than a lot of places Open seating areas- upstairs and downstairs- good to get chatting to fellow travellers If you want luxury don't stay here but if you need one/ two nights of cheap accomodation and your not too fussy then it's o.k!

This is the worst hostel I've been at. The staff are very rude and irresponsible, smells like poop in the entire hostel and the sheets are SUPER DISGUSTING. Arrived late in the night but rushed out the morning after. Didn't wanna spend a second there.

Do not stay here!
Me and my friend stayed here for three nights and it was terrible. The staff was not friendly. The room was really small and the beds were uncomfortable. The bathroom was the worst. The water in the shower smelled awful and the toilet didn't flush properly. Sometimes the air-condition did not work. I would not recommend this hostel to anyone!
