“Perfect Guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

The place is really clean and all the basic things you need while on a getaway is there. The rooms are spacious and won't make you feel claustrophobic, the towels and linens are always fresh. you will enjoy the common area with that big tv, helps you pass time before you sleep or while waiting for your scheduled day trip. You can use the kitchen and the fridge. the toilet and bath are always kept clean by the staff. Then there's unlimited supply of coffee. So if you want an accommodation that is affordable and well worth it, this is the place to be in Coron.
The manager and the staff were amazing... really great people. They will treat you like family.

I stayed here at the end of April and had a nice stay.

The staff here are really lovely, even though they were suffering from the heat too.

It's very very basic and rooms can get very hot (especially when the electricity goes out!), but the staff and other guests are lovely so make up for that.

Room costs are also good - the Philippines is a lot more expensive than Thailand for accommodation, so be prepared to pay enough but get less. The route to Coron Backpackers is daunting and a little smelly, but stick with it :)

Coron in general is a small town with not much happening but you can meet others around some of the diving resorts

If you're a rough and ready type, traveling on a budget and looking for a basic place to stay, the Backpackers Guesthouse might be for you. The walls are paper thin, but I had no problem sleeping. The shared toilet could have done with thicker walls but it was clean and the shower was great.

It is located in a slightly dingy area, only dingy because the neighbours don't keep it clean enough. If they cleaned underneath their homes, the Guesthouse would thrive even more.

Very friendly helpful staff, free coffee, wifi, water. Kitchen to cook and prepare your meals. Beds clean and comfortable, spacious rooms to hang your wet garments. I recommend taking your own padlock for insurance purposes - but theft is not rampant in Coron, and there is always someone there watching the place.

Noise can be a bit of an issue if people are talking outside but earplugs are a good solution!

Enjoy :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end, away from other rooms if you want more privacy.

It' not a five-star-hotel but they have everything a backpacker would need. The rooms are very basic, we only had a bed, but the common area had a TV/DVD, WiFi and kitchen. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

This is one of the best places that i have stayed in the Philippines. The hostel is really clean and has a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly... I hurt myself in a motorbike accident and they went out of their way to help me. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the backpackers recently and found it to be very clean and friendly with the added bonus of a kitchen to use (which is a luxury in the Philippines.) The staff were really friendly and helpful. One thing I would like to note is it can be rather smelly as the property is over water and at low-tide exposes a lot of rubbish. The smell is much better if you stay at the back of the hostel, although it is rather noisy. This isn't a problem if you're getting up early to go on day trips anyway. We ended up staying for 10 days whilst doing a dive course, so don't let it put you off.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back of the hostel!

I booked a room here a few days ahead of time and unfortunately I didn't make it on the date I'd said. I received an email from them asking if I was still coming. I rebooked for two days later without any problem. They were very friendly and accomodating, and I felt that the room was a good value for the money. The only complaint I'd have is the noise from neighbors which starts very early in the morning. That being said, it's not out of the norm for the location. All part of the travel experience!

Room Tip: I think the rooms in the front are less noisy in the early morning, but I'm not entirely sure.
