Hostel Recommendation When Travelling to Siargao Island – Primitivo Art Village

Primitivo Art Village Cottage

Some time this year Boracay Island was closed and most tourists had to change their holiday destination. As we were in this group, we decided to go to Siargao Island. As always, I opened up HostelWorld and, but unfortunately, everything was fully booked! I got a little bit nervous. I asked around and I got a few recommendations to check out Primitivo Art Village. Not thinking so much, we messaged them on Facebook and they answered within a couple of minutes:

OK, your bed will be ready.

We asked how we can book it and got the response:

No worries, we prefer to invite guests to check out our hostel first before deciding. Just come over, your beds will be ready.

Island life, do not expect luxury for this price. The hostel provides clean bedsheets and pillows, however, you will not get a towel. The bathroom is in island style, a basket with water for a shower. It is a great place to experience filipino island lifestyle if you are ready for it 🙂  Try it!

The biggest benefit of this hostel is the fact that you will feel like friends or family members to the group that are running it. The first night we were singing and playing music with the owners and staff. The following nights we went out together to listen to local band music. The last night we were invited to have free dinner all together. How amazing is that?!

At the hostel you can also book island hopping for PHP800 per person. Ask the owner to help you book motorbikePHP500 for 24 hours.
