La Banane Hostel, El Nido Palawan Apr 01, 2013
La Banane Hostel is located right in the middle of the bustling town of El Nido, Palawan. The beachfront location gives you a beautiful view of Bacuit Bay, El Nido. Restaurants and shops are a stone throw away. Wifi connection is decent and it has a laidback atmosphere.
There are two dorm rooms: men and women. The rooms are quite tight with three sets of three level bunk beds. The third level is about an arm's length to the ceiling. It can be difficult and annoying if you are assigned to the top level beds. They, however, have lockers where you can store important belongings at the foot of your bed. During my stay, however, they dumped a couple of men in the women's dorm because the other room was full. It was also surprising when I decided to just chill around the hostel one day when the two lady receptionists took a nap in one of the beds currently occupied by a guest.
Because it is by the beach, it gets really warm during the day and it doesn't help that there is only one fan plus electricity on the island is cut off at 6am towards noon.
What is nice about La Banane though are the huge bean bags, torchlights, and chill-out music laid out by the shores at night. It is a nice cozy set-up where travelers can chit chat and recall the awesome activities done during the day.
