a hometel ideal for a group of male & female backpackers Jun 20, 2012
I did not stay in this hometel but I was able to tour the place because this is where the group of guys from Manila stayed. They gave me a tour in one of those afternoons I visited them.

Novita House is a bungalow type house. The “hometel” has an air-conditioned master’s bedroom with 2 double beds separated by partitions. There are two extra mattresses for more than six people.

There are two other extra beds positioned in two different spots in the house; however there’s no privacy in this other two spots. One bed is next to the living room and the other bed is in a tiny hallway just behind the wall of the living room.

Very ideal for a group of male & female backpackers!

There are two toilet and bath or shower rooms.

The kitchen is spacious and furnished with cooking stove, a fridge, a complete cooking and dining utensils, etc. There is also a dining table with 6 chairs.

There is a (small) television in the living room. There is also a patio just before you enter the main house with a table and chairs.

Daily rates last year (June) was Pph 1,500.00. Not bad if there are 4 to 6 people in the group to chip in.

There are sufficient electrical outlets around the house to recharge your phones or camera batteries.

The hostel is in a very safe location/neighborhood. Well, Batanes in general is a crime-free destination in the Philippines after all!

The owner of the hostel resides away from the island but the caretaker is the nicest lady and by the way who also is a tour-guide!
