I have made the reservation during easter holiday ,2014. In between , we have few email and confirmation on my booking .They were nice to answer my questions on my travel plan concerning the transportation in email as well.
HOWEVER, when i arrived oslob in front of their hostel. NIGHTMARE happened.
Since it took us 4 hours to oslob due to the busy traffic dring easter holiday, i arrived there at 9 pm.
When i arrived,they told me the room i booked was under construction and no room was available for me!
I was pretty sure that they actually sold our room to others instead.They had not sent me any email in notifiying about the unavailability of the room ever. Since it was easter holiday,local people went to oslob for vacation as well, rooms were really fully occupied. As a result, i was wandered around at 10 pm in Oslob with my empty stomach.
The staff was trying to find a room for us but only room which available were those pretty expensive one or very poorly set up.Staff was with no intention to compensate us a room and given the price differences.Instead they just led us around the street and even asked us to pay for the taxi fare when they led us around! Finally, a room was offered with very very poorly set up but asking us the same price we intended to pay in aaron!
Think clearly before you make a reservation in aaaron because you may come up with no place to stay. Trust me, you will be very trouble to have no place to stay in rural place like Oslob.
P.S. dont ever think about going to oslob during easter holiday. It was their BIG festival as well.Lots of local people go there and make oslob a very crowded place. We were very pity that we couldn't see the whaleshark finally as they told us to wait for at least three hours .We gave that up since whaleshark should already be fed quite full for consistently three hours .
