I have been planning to go to Coron for a year already, but the flights to Coron were really expensive. Luckily I found cheap flights and a cheap ferry at the beginning of June. As soon as I booked the flight and ferry, I checked quickly for hostels. I found a newly opened hostel on hostelworld.com with an amazing view and it just stood out from another places. Let me tell you about my new discovery – place to stay when travelling to Coron, Philippines – Hop Hostel!
Where to stay while travelling to Coron, Philippines?
Let me share with you our experiences in Hop Hostel, White Palace 🙂
Hop Hostel Location
The hostel is located at Calle Nueva Poblacion 5, Coron, Philippines, which is 30 minutes by van from the airport or 10 minutes by tricycle from the port. While taking a tricycle from the port you should pay no more than PHP100. They sometimes ask for PHP200, don’t take it.
Hop Hostel Costs
We stayed in the Basic 12 Bed Mixed Dorm for 4 nights. The total costs via hostelworld were PHP5432.00 for 4 nights for 2 people. It seems to be around PHP679 per night per person.
Hop Hostel Room Conditions
The conditions of the beds were amazing, it had curtains which is great because it gives you some privacy, they also have double beds in the dormitory! Unfortunately you don’t get towels so remember to take one with you. The room was cleaned everyday and the staff were super friendly.
Hop Hostel Restaurant
The hostel has a really nice restaurant with local and international meals. The prices in the restaurant were quite good as compared to prices in other hostel’s food places. Average price was between PHP150 and PHP250. You pay as you order. You can choose between the breakfast menu which was delicious, through to the lunch and dinner menu. You also can get banana bread which was my favourite one!
Another important point is that the hostel offers free dinner every day, you just need to sign in before 4pm. The dinner is around 5:30pm.
Hop Hostel Place
The place is literally amazing. It has a rooftop with bar, chairs, tables and an amazing view! The restaurant has comfy chairs and pillows with board games to get from the reception. You just need to leave them your ID, games are for free. The hostel also has a mini cinema, again, you need to leave them your ID to get the control and hard disk with the movies. Check out my pictures.
Hop Hostel Attractions
While staying there for 4 nights, every evening we could enjoy different attractions. On the first night, there was a yoga classes, you just need to rent a mat for PHP50 but classes are for free. The next day they had a Hot Spring tour which cost PHP300, much cheaper than if you would go there by yourself. This price already includes the entrance fee PHP200 and transportation. In case you want to go there by yourself, you need to pay around PHP400 for tricycle (both ways, they will wait for you) plus PHP200 for entrance fee. Every day they organise different tours and attractions like movie night, parties, pub crawl and so on.
