The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Eco Pink Hostel is the only true backpackers hostel in Banaue and is a lovely place. The hostel is located close to the center of Banaue and is a wonderful location to explore the rice terraces of Banaue and Batad. The hostel has a friendly and social atmosphere, and is a great place for solo travelers to meet others. The hostel offers numerous trekking trips, and we had the most wonderful experience booking a two-day, one-night trekking experience. The hostel will allow you to store your belongings and only take what you need.
The hostel is located about a five-minute walk from the center of the small town of Banaue. It is very easy to find from the bus station, and if you provide the hostel with your arrival time, they will meet you at the bus station and take you back to the hostel. Banaue is the best location if you're interested in exploring the UNESCO Heritage rice terraces in Banaue and Batad.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The hostel has six-bed dorm rooms with comfortable beds. The bathroom is basic but offers both hot and cold showers. Some dorm rooms have en suite bathrooms while other have shared bathrooms. All the bathrooms and rooms are kept very clean. The beds also have blankets for the colder mountain evenings.
The hostel has one main outdoor common area, with comfortable sofas. It creates a very welcoming and sociable atmosphere. It is very easy to meet with other travelers and facilitates conversation. As many people choose to take part in trekking and excursions from the hostel, it is a friendly place to meet others with whom you will be trekking. There is a kitchen in the hostel but it is only for use by hostel staff. The hostel provides a basic breakfast of toast and jam or peanut butter, along with coffee and tea.
Eco Pink Hostel is a great place to stay to meet other backpackers, especially as there are not as many backpackers in Banaue as in other parts of Philippines. The hostel arranges some amazing tours and treks, and they will allow you to store your belongings at the hostel and use the facilities once you return, even if you will not stay the night. Unfortunately, the hostel has a couple of chickens who will wake you up very early in the morning.
