We stayed at Birang Guesthouse for about 3 days. It was a terrible terrible experience. I was the one who booked this place for my family because I saw in some forums and reviews that its a great place to stay while in Coron. Maybe it was before, but it sure is not now. However when we arrived, there were another batch of tourists that seems to have been there before and knows the owner, Biring. I understand that they might be loyal customers but I wish they would have given us notice. All our requests were an afterthought and the staff did not even bother to greet us or talk to us. English might be limited but a simple hello or smile helps liven up people's moods.
When we asked to have our rooms cleaned, one of the the staff said that she will clean our rooms but forgot to do it. We asked again the next day but still no cleaning happened. The rooms are very paper thin! I guess its ok if you're with a big group and rent out the whole house but not if there's just two or four people. You could compare it to a hostel in Europe but more expensive. I do agree with Simon J's review that it is a glorified back-packers place to sleep in.
