  • Description


    Here, you will find a safe, clean, fun and affordable accommodation. Its perfect for backpackers and a holiday maker. We are located in General Luna, Siargao island which is close to the World Famous surf break Cloud 9. This hostel is close to everything : only 10 minutes walk from the beach and 5 minutes walk to tourism road which means that you have easy access to the restaurant/bar/shop/etc.

    Even though the island is known for surfing, there is so much more to do that doesn’t involve waves. Here a few : Magpungko Rock pool is an epic little area with coves, caves and cliff. You can visit the coconut palm forest at sunrise or sunset. Rent a big wood raft or SUP boards, use the diving board or swim around at the Sugba Lagoon. Hop on a variety of island during an island hopping adventure. From Guyam island to Daku island to Naked Island, come discover our magnificent beaches.

    Also, if you want, you can ask us to learn how to make traditional coconut oil. Indeed, on site, we do the best coconut oil of the island. You can also ask to experience a Philippino jungle journey with us!
