Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Moalboal Backpacker Lodge is the only backpacker's in this area. It's surrounded by resorts and is probably the best price around if you are looking for a place to only spend the night. It offers Wi-Fi and book exchange and a very relaxed and multicultural ambiance. It's a building where cement, bamboo, and wood are combined in their structure. It was recently renovated.

The Location

The place is situated in Pagnasama Beach, roughly two kilometers from Moalboal city. This small place is full of diving centres, restaurants, souvenirs shops, and bars. The location is a diving and snorkeling destination and ten meters from shore you can see sardines shoals and turtles. The location is also known by Kawasan Waterfalls, where you can spend a great day in light blue waterfalls or doing some canyoning and cliff jumping. It takes twenty minutes on the bus to get there.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There is two dorms, one of fourteen bunk beds and another one of four. The first one is on the first floor and second one in ground floor. There is also some private rooms. All the beds have mosquito nets and are very clean. They give you bed sheets and towel. And there is fans all around the room. You also have lockers but you need to bring your own padlock. On the first floor there is a very simple toilet; the flush is manual. The main toilets and the showers are located in the ground floor and are clean daily. The first floor is a barefoot area and if you go dive or snorkel you should leave your towel and shower items in shelves near showers in order to keep first floor dry.

Common Spaces

There is a bamboo lounge in the first floor connected with the big dorm where you can relax. It's also designated the smoking area. Around the dorm there is also some hammocks where you can read or take a nap. The kitchen is behind the building and is also a very simple bamboo-built kitchen but with all the necessary kitchen tools. You also have a fridge where you can put some stuff.

Summary

It is a very good backpacker's hostel with good location and good conditions. There is a good relation of quality and price for the hostel and the ambiance is the normal traveler's relaxing mood.
