It has been weeks since we arrived from Siargao and we were very fortunate that we were able to go home before the succeeding quarantine that’s been imposed by the LGU to combat and help flatten the curve regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
We had a beautiful vacation even Jul doesn’t want to leave the island. As what I have said on my recent vlog, I made a decision to book and stay at three hotels with different budget and accommodation so that I can share our experience to anyone who wants to enjoy the island as well.
For me, Siargao can be explored with a tight budget, you just need to find the right accommodation, airline deals, contact the most trusted person and of course plan your trip in advance.
When we arrived in the island we stayed first at Tres Islas Hostel, we booked a Basic Double Bed Private Room with Shared Bathroom for two nights. I have never stayed in a hostel before but it was such a refreshing experience, of course it took awhile for Sven to get used to going outside and using the shared bath but in all fairness to Tres Islas Hostel I was very impressed on how they managed the hostel, right from the location, clean and organized place, their customer service and accommodating staff.
We booked through Agoda.com, I always checked the hotel’s rating before booking and Tres Islas seemed to have one of the best ratings on the site. I fell in love with their laid back photos on Agoda and searched their page on Facebook, with all the information provided I decided to book the hotel before it gets sold out.
Tres Islas Hostel is located at the second main road near the old Toursim road, what I love about the place is it’s ideal area for quite and serenity yet still accessible to the best tourist areas in Siargao. The road may not be cemented yet but I know the Barangay is working on it.
The homey feel of Tres Islas made it very comfortable for us, Sven and Jul enjoyed staying at the lounge area while I clean and organised our room. I appreciate the privacy in our Private room but it would also be cool to experience a dormitory type of accommodation if only Sven won’t usually make a fuss when it’s bedtime, we cannot afford to be disturbing other sleepers inside the room.
The artsy design made the hostel very laid back and instagrammable as well, their shared bathrooms are clean and well-provided with water and toiler paper. Their kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook your own food.
We were provided with a FREE Breakfast during our stay and we were able to save a bit since we make sure we were full enough before embarking on our daily trips.
Tres Islas Hostel is a family owned hostel, that is why they treat their guests as one of their own, a part of their growing family!
Their room rates are also very affordable with clean rooms and fresh sheets provided for their guests and the value for your money is completely way off the charts because as a budget hostel Tres Islas definitely exceeded my expectation.
