Review by Traveloka users

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

We had a great stay. Place is accessible for public transport. Delicious rice is just fine. Another problem is we booked an air-conditioned room for 4. However when we arrived there they told us that the room was already taken because they thought that we weren't coming since we arrived late night (1 AM; the ff day of the booking date). So, they gave us the only available room for 4 which is two bunk beds fan room. Good thing they gave us a 50% on breakfast because of it.
A great place to stay. fits my needs and budget. staff are very friendly. Thank you, Happy Time!
The place is just walking distance from Butterfly Garden. We booked here for a quick rest and so we could be within city proper (easy for our chosen tour agency to pick us up). Their fan room is well-ventilated but we were only given one small blanket to share during the cold night. We also spotted a cockroach in our room. Toiletries like shampoo and soap are given upon request. We tried their food and I would suggest you eat out instead if you want good value for your money.
Poor WiFi connection and unpleasant smell of bed and pillow case

Normal place, bad location
This place has good facilities, but rooms at least the one i was was full of insects and these stuff around all room. Toilet wasnt so clean. Other problem is that is far away from everything even far from airport. The owner is okey but if you dont book trips with him is like upset with you. Also if he saw you talking with tricicle people. Is good for cheap budgets.

Absolutly perfect
When you are browsing booking.com or agoda its really difficult to find clean place with affordable price but Happy Time it is just perfect place for very affordable price. The place is very clean, everything is make from solid components (no chance for spiders or anything else). Bathroom had small soaps, also the shampoo. Bed was very comfortable and window has a screen grid that protect insects to come inside during nightly open window. If you are sensistive to hear roaster at the morning you can close second inner window that protect room from any external sounds. Tomas the owner it is very friendly person who really put a charm on this place. Location of this place is also very good because from there it is yeepney to airport and it is quite near to Robinson. 5 min walking from the hotel you can visit butterfly garden, it is also great.

Incredible service
I can't put into words how wonderful the owner, Tomas, and his team were. So helpful, so kind, there wasn't anything they wouldn't do for us. We had many troubles with ATM's, the bank, buses and other hotels but he would help and fix everything. Wonderful human. The only reason it's not a 5 star rating is the location; too far to walk although there are jimmneys and tricycles constantly going past.

Good place
I stayed at this plave without a planned holiday. The owner and the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. The rooms are good and clean, its excellent value for money. These guys got english speaking people who would help arrange your travel plans. The owner is a foreign national living in the Philippines and is very helpful. I would recommend this place to everybody looking to spend time on the island.

100% Amazing!!
My friend and I fell in love with Happy Time Palawan. The staff is insanely helpful and super kind. We arrived for a couple days and they set up the next week for us with tours to/in Puerto Princesa, El Nido and Port Barton. They helped us with everything! We ended up leaving El Nido and Port Barton after only one day because we wanted to return to Happy Time, it felt like home. My friend left her bag with all her cash and passport in Port Barton while we were waiting for the transport van and the owner and staff of Happy Time ended up taking a scooter and driving to all the bus stations and calling and asking around for her. After a stressful day they actually found it and returned it with all belongings inside! We are eternally grateful. The staff and cleanliness made us feel at home and there's a kitchen you can use which made us feel more at home. After two months of travelling south east Asia, this was my favourite place to stay. We also rented a motorbike From Happy Time almost every day and drove to Nagtabon Beach which was the most beautiful beach I've seen in the Philippines and was super quiet. The drive itself is calm and easy and beautiful. Would highly recommend staying here.
