Interaction with guests
If you need important information, feel free to call me at my island home and I’ll do my best to help you. In my stead, please ask Pie or Ann to accommodate you. FYI: I'm English born, arrived in El Nido, (one of the early pioneers) in 1986, long before El Nido had a road or hotel. I discovered Malapacao Island, moved there soon after and have remained there these past 31 years. Aside from my quality island time, I keep busy managing an organic fruit and veggie farm, growing cultured mushrooms and raising animals, so I rarely come to town. You can read a little about my island life and more particularly why I have built this boutique designer hostel on my profile.

About the neighbourhood
This hostel is a complete building for the hostel. Construction is ongoing upstairs.
The rooftop view-deck, hang out space, plus washing and basic cooking area may be soon available, (provided you don't mind sharing with our small construction team). The upstairs bigger dorm rooms might take another 3-5 months.
For rainy humid days when bugs are abound, or for visitors sensitive to them, we use natural repellants, herbs and plants.
We offer mosquito nets and this includes daily set up.
Also as extras, we often have citronella and lemongrass candles, essential oils and other mosquito deterrents as well as mosquito coils for those who want to buy them. Please just order these items from our front desk.
