Banwa the Best Aug 29, 2013
I was lucky enough to stay at the Banwa for a while in Aug 13'. My stay here was all good. I opted for the single bed private with a shared bathroom. The room was clean and had a big bed with a fan. The bathroom was big and clean. There is a nice common area/deck that also acts as a restaurant/bar area. They have free wifi that seemed to work everywhere. The location is in a neighborhood, but not far from restaurants and nightlife. The setup is cool, it makes you feel like you are at a jungle lounge instead of in a city. The staff are super cool and very nice, they can help you with anything you need. They will also book any trips or tours you want to go at a fair price. I'd stay here again if I came back to Puerto Princesa.

Banwa Pension Jun 20, 2008
Banwa is a small pension located a bit of the main drag of Puerto Princesa. Because it only got a few rooms and it has made its way into the Lonely Planet you may be better of booking in advance because they do fill up occasionally during the high season. In principal it is possible to do an online booking - but when I tried it my reservation ended up in the spam filter so phone may be a better option if you want to make sure they get your booking.

The rooms are fairly small but they are clean and the staff is friendly and very helpful. The main attraction of the place is a large balcony at the back where you can have meals from the kitchen downstairs if you like. There is also a nice little self service bar where you can get your basic drinks at affordable rates.

The mother of the owner is a bit of an artist so the place is full of her artwork which is for sale if you want to buy.

Overall it is a great place to meet up with fellow travellers given there is almost always a few guest around even in the low season - something good do come out of being in LPG.
