The stay was just right for the budget! Clean rooms and atmosphere is cozy. Small budget room is just right for sleeping after a long-day's sightseeing. Very simple and basic amenities. The location of the lodging is a bit off the main road which is quite nice especially at night.

i booked for 3nights however plans changed so we stayed for 2 nights only. they didn't even bother that much if we changed minds though, they're flexible. private rooms can accommodate 2 guests for 1300 pesos. which is cheap enough if you're in sbma. we took 2 private rooms, they're clean and neat and its a cute place, the ambiance is home feel like. i brought my baby with us and although we were a bit noisy because of the baby they understood the situation, comfort rooms are clean and well maintained. the staff is also nice and accommodating.

Our family of 6 got 2 private rooms with extra bed each. The room is small but clean. a/c is cold and it has a cable flat tv. The only uncomfortable part for my mom is when she wants to go to the comfort room at night since the whole hotel shares common comfort and bathroom (men have a different comfort and bath from women) that is located at the end of the hallway. Despite this issue the staff are friendly and attentive and they always clean the common areas as well as the bath and cr.

The Cabin is not a hotel, nor even a motel, or a boutique inn, in the strictest sense, but it is a backpacker's delight - homey atmosphere, cozy and neat rooms, green spaces where you need them, and lovely decors to look at. Very cheap rates and very few options, one can only choose between a private room that has a double bed (900 pesos for 1, plus additional 200 if 2 in a room), or a dorm bed (shared with 9 others, or if you are lucky, you are only two or three in the room, at 550 per pax). The private rooms are named after the grandchildren of the owner, who also owns Subic Park Hotel (where a complimentary pass to the swimming pool is available for The Cabin's guests). One of the grandchildren is the 2016 Miss International Kylie Verzosa, after whom No.1 room is named. Opposite this room is No. 2 named Kevin, which I recommend if Kylie room is occupied. The private rooms are basic, with just a table and dresser with mirror, but provided with clean sheets and towels, and the cable TV and aircon work well. Bathrooms are common, one for the ladies, and at the far end of the hallway, another for the gents, with 3 shower rooms, separate from 3 toilets. The hot and cold showers are provided with bath gel dispenser, and lots of hooks for your stuff. Wifi is strong everywhere, even in the backyard gardens. The living room is airy and welcoming, and the dining area beside it is great for breakfasts and snack time. When we went there, all we needed was a place to sleep, and what we found is a home away from home.

I was looking for a place to stay while in Olongapo and happen to pass this hut. I was intrigued since I remember it as an abandon storage of some sort when I was still working inside SBMA and was surprised they had converted it to a "cute" lodge. The makeover was nicely done. The price is reasonable especially if you are just looking for a place to sleep. There are several room options but I choose the "deluxe" over the dorm type. They only have common CR but it's ok if you're not with your family.

Clean and cozy private and dorm rooms. Communal bathrooms are decent and have hot showers. Walking distance to dining areas, convenience stores, and beaches. Good value for money. Staff is corteous and polite as well.

I have researched a lot of hotels inside Subic and I landed on this Inn, which is so affordable and very near to our destination. I had doubts on what they can offer as we are first timers in Subic. I have heard that Subic is a bit expensive when it comes to rates and prices compared to other provinces but I after I did my research, the city is not that bad. What I liked about the venue is its strategic location to our venue, the clean environment and surroundings, impressed not to see a lot of trash... as expected inside Subic... fresh air...not much cars passing by in front. The venue has ample garage for its guests. It has a simple reception area and dining area, which aircondition is not needed as the air around the hotel is not polluted as there are trees around, which gives shade. What we needed was a clean and comfortable place to stay for the night as we will be mostly out during the day, which they have delivered, from the bed to the room to the toilet and comfort room. Our family is used to traveling backpacker style (couple and 1 kid), so comfort is not really our top priority. As long as we have fun in our trip and not compromising our budget, then we are satisfied with it. We brought along toiletries, but they have basic toiletries like bath gel in the shower, hand soap in the sink and tissue paper in the toilet. There is 1 female common bathroom (3 cubicles for toilet and 3 cubicles for shower with 2 showers that has hot water), while there are 2 male common bathrooms. Therefore, one needs to bring along his/her new clothes when taking a shower as he/she needs to change right after taking a bath. They do have some snacks and drinks for sale such as sodas, biscuits, coffee, noodles, chips... backpacker style...and not the complicated sandwiches and dishes....other toiletries also like toothpaste...conditioner are for sale. One of the most interesting things that I had experienced was that no matter how small and cozy their hotel is....compared to the luxurious hotels that I have been to.... but they never failed to reach out and extend their Filipino hospitality to their fellow Filipinos. I would like to commend their receptionists Charlie and Ruby (I think these are their names) and the guy assistant who kept on attending to our bags for accommodating me and my family as well as my other family members who arrived 2 days after we checked in. They were able to attend to our requests as we really wanted to have a private room instead of the dorm type but unfortunately, there was no available room when we made our online booking so we settled for the dorm type for 3 nights in our booking but Charlie made a way to get us a room for 2 nights. My family and I were happy and relieved to get a private room. For Miss Ruby, she was able to settle my mother's booking, which had a problem with the online booking but was later on fixed. Thank you so much! To all backpackers, whether family, friends or colleagues is recommended for you!

We stayed here for a night. It's very cheap! We didn't expect much in this prop because of the rate per room, but when we arrived, we were surprised and were happy about the service. The room is good for two, it has air conditioner and tv. It is common CR but it's well maintained, and clean. Take note, the food is a bit expensive, so we decided to have breakfast in fastfood near the prop.

It's not a hotel, so there are shared bathrooms and not a bathroom per room. The staff was hospitable and accommodating. When we were there, the place was kept and quiet. It's also a convenient location, walking distance to restaurants and the beach. Select rooms have TV with cable. They also have WiFi. You can book a stay for as low as 480php per day. They have a very well-kept place, comfortable mattress and pillows, well air-conditioned and well-lighted. Some unique artifacts are on display too. It was a lovely stay.

I travelled alone to SBMA to visit my long lost friend and she recommended The Cabin as my place to stay. Here are my views/opinions: Positive: - Nice interiors - Clean restrooms - Great location - Affordable - Great AC - WiFi available Negative: - Room is not yet ready (I arrived around 1PM - check in is 2PM) You never clean a room with the guest inside.. That's why you have the check in and check out time, right? - Guy receptionist not so accomodating/pleasant Needs to improve more on his customer service skills. - Not safe for women since the Dorm room is shared with male strangers. My fault since I didn't ask if it's separated or not, I assumed that it is, so to my surprise, I get to sleep in one room with 5 men. Had asked to upgrade my room to a solo one, but unfortunately, it's fully booked. One thing I learned that night, Dorm room is NOT for solo travelers.
