This hostel currently has 3 floors. Ground floor is a little more deluxe with with 6 rooms
These are either Family, Group or Delux Double Rooms all with cute garden sala in each room.
Upstairs on our 1st floor we have our big kitchen and 3 big budget dorm rooms.
On our rooftop, we have a rustic setting with beautiful oval shaped native roofing for our Glamping experience which is using 2-3 man Dome Tents.
The atmosphere and design is GREEN eco-friendly, with the use of organic products where possible.
The hostel is Smoke FREE, (meaning not allowed) as is Drugs, loud groups, parties and litter. Drinking Alcohol beverage is allowed but just 1 -
2 beers quietly not affecting others. El Nido is growing so fast the town power is finding it challenging to support their electricity needs. Most hotels are providing noisy, fuel guzzling expensive generators. We prefer to use our quiet back-up solar power if possible.
The decor is soft with both light and dark hues of pink, brown and green, leaning on the feminine gentle side in tune with nature and the earth.
Our location offers lots of positives like being in close proximity to the market, the terminal, the beach, plus lots of motorbike rentals and just a P10 ride by trike to downtown.
The tiny down side is we are a near to the town power plant and its engine can be heard a touch too much in some rooms. To reduce this hum, our planting of more bamboo around the edges of our building is baffling this sound.

If you need important information or help, feel free to call me at my island home. In my stead, especially if you have any issue in your room (like an electrical fault of plumbing fault), let Pie or Ann know immediately and they will do their best to accommodate you as quickly as possible.
FYI: I'm English born, arrived in El Nido, (one of the early pioneers) in 1986, long before El Nido had a road or hotel. I discovered Malapacao Island, moved there soon after and have remained there these past 31 years.
Aside from my quality island time, I keep busy managing an organic farm, where I grow fruit and veggie, plus fish ponds on the mainland, as well as produce cultured mushrooms and raise animals, not to mention many dogs on the island. So if I have a choice, I rarely come to town.
On my profile you can read a little about my island life and more particularly why I have built this boutique designer hostel.
For rainy humid days when bugs are around, or for visitors sensitive to them, we encourage the use natural repellants, herbs and plants.
We are offering mosquito nets citronella candles, essential oil deterrents and even mosquito coils for those who order these items in advance.
So let me know if such pesky critters are challenging for you and we will do our best to make you stay more enjoyable(URL HIDDEN) Elternative Hostel House Rules

31 years ago I was blessed to find a tiny tropical island in the middle of the South China Sea, El Nido, Philippines to call home. Born in the UK, raised in Australia.
Having travelled extensively for many years I always craved to sleep (where possible) in gardens, on rooftops, beside rivers, streams and lakes with plenty of open spaces and quiet, gentle energy.
Many years ago I built the Alternative Inn on the beachfront of El Nido town and while it was running, it was amazingly popular for its unique ambiance, great vibes and spectacular views of El Nido bay, not to mention my birds-nests structures for dining right over the water..
Now aged 66 and retired, I mostly live on my private island, enjoying a quiet natural lifestyle, as a nudist, swimming, snorkelling, practicing yoga and Tai Chi, etc., and enjoying a healthy whole food diet with just the occasional likeminded visitor.
Remembering my preferences in hostel living, I have created The Elternative Hostel for visitors a little like myself. So for those seeking the unique, with a feeling of living in the garden or close to nature and in a quiet Smoke and Alcohol FREE environment, my Elternative Hostel might be a good option for your stay while in El Nido, Palawan
