This is one of the few lodges where you can stay in Palompon if you want to go to Kalanggaman the next day. I stayed here bec there were no vacancies in the other lodges probably bec a lot of tourists stayed in Palompon with the hope that next day the coast guards will allow boats to go to Kalanggaman since there was a typhoon during that time. I arrived here around past 8pm and there's no one to welcome guests. I entered their gate but stopped after a few steps as there are 2 dogs barking. The potpot driver continued to knock and luckily someone attended to us. I asked for a solo room but then the lady lead me to a room which has 3 beds. As far as I can remember this is the only room available. The room has an old small tv and aircon. Included in the room are 3 towels, tissue roll and soap. They also have a hot and cold shower. Upon entering the room, I approached the comfort room. But upon opening the door, a half palm-sized spider was on the wall. I asked the lady to deal with it and went out. When I get back, a smaller spider appeared that time. I wanted to refresh after a long day so I just went on with my thing. The hot shower didn't really made the water hot. I was really tired from going around Leyte but this place made me fall asleep at past 3 am. It sorta looked scary to me that's why.
The next day, at around 6 am, the lady knocked on my door to inform me that breakfast is already served. Night before she told me there's no breakfast included but yay! I was served a 3-in-1 coffee, pandesal and a sunny side up egg along with the news that after 2 days of no sail.. boats are now allowed. I was joined by the owner Inday Nita who happened to be a member of the tourism office. She called kuya Allan Toledo to assist me in the tourism office. She told me to finish my breakfast and prepare to go right away to the office. She asked her housekeeper to get me a potpot (pedicab) and instructed me to only pay Php5 and nothing more. She instructed the potpot driver where to bring me. Inday Nita was very assistive which made my stay better since I was kind of weary bec of the typhoon.
