When i booked this place I had absolutely no high expectation from it. We got a small room, a bed and a fan and that was OK. Even thought I wasn't expecting much I was absolutely disappointed by the toilets. 2 toilets out of 4 don't flush at all. One doesn't even have the button to do it. None of the toilet have a seat. Obviously there's no hot shower. The toilet paper is left on the wet and discussing floor if there's any. It was absolutely filthy and I would not recommend this place at all. Even if its cheap.
We stayed here for 6 nights while in Coron. It is just off of the Main Street in so good for easy access to restaurants and bars. The staff and helpful, they allowed us to use their computer and printer when we needed it urgently and booked us an airport transfer. The outdoor communal area had a hut and hammocks to chill on which is pleasant. These qualities we feel makes it passable for budget accommodation however we wouldn’t describe our stay as comfortable. Our room was tiny and had no window which wasn’t pleasant and meant very poor ventilation. We had a fan but it just seemed to blow the musty/ damp air around the room which caused both my partner and I to get sore throats. The walls of the rooms are also made of wicker meaning everything that your neighbours do you can hear. There are posters up saying no noise after 10pm but this didn’t stop people coming home at 3am shouting to their friends through the walls. It was hard to sleep and though there is a night watch the rule is not enforced. On one night another guest got very angry at the people making noise and it caused some aggression. The bathrooms are communal and we have used a lot of these throughout our time travelling however there are 4 bathrooms and none of the toilets have a seat and only 1 toilet has a flush. This meant everyone wanted to use this bathroom and it made it quite smelly as I don’t believe they are cleaned regularly. We never witnessed anyone cleaning it although this could be done at night. The showers are cold water only and very weak pressure which isn’t too bad after a day in the heat but worth knowing. Lastly, though they have WiFi it is extremely weak and doesn’t work even in reception where the box seems to be placed. We had to go to local cafes to check into flights and book our next accommodation. We appreciate that it is budget accommodation but we have stayed in many similar priced places while travelling that has been miles better. Therefore we would not recommend this guesthouse. …
Guapos Guesthouse is great if you are looking for a cheap place to stay for the night. The rooms are small but clean and have fans. The Restrooms also satifsfie the basic bathroom-needs and the staff is very friendly. WIFI is very slow most of the times, but the patio and especially the Hammocks are great to hangout and meet people.
Great location, it is off the main street, easily walkable to town and a couple nice restaurants. We came here without booking, after leaving a previous accommodation which had been horrible. The staff were very welcoming to us. We enjoyed the outside space which was nice to have time to relax.
This is a great place to stay, great location and clean comfy rooms, the shared bathroom was always kept clean too! Only fault was how hot the rooms get with only a fan, not to complain as most places in the philipines only have a fan. Also the snorkels are very cheap to rent if doing a tour rent from here as you won’t get any cheaper on the port!
