The hostel is Smoke and Alcohol FREE, (meaning not allowed) as is Drugs, loud groups, parties and litter. El Nido is growing fast and the town power is finding it challenging to support their electricity needs. When this happens, we use our quiet back-up solar power. 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 little too near the town power plant and its big engine (when on) can be heard too much in some rooms. To reduce this hum, our planting of more bamboo around the edges of our building is baffling this sound a little. Elternative Hostel House Rules 1. No smoking or drinking of alcohol policy anywhere on Elternative property including hang out spaces in the garden and roof top. 2. No wasting of water please, it’s so precious, especially in our dry season when the whole town is severely short of water. 3. UNBOOKED visitors are NOT allowed in hostel rooms. 4 Parties and special events are not encouraged here. 5. May not be safe or suitable for infants (Under 12 years)More

Interaction with guests
If you need important info please call me at my island home & I’ll do my best to help you. In my stead, please ask Pie or Ann to accommodate you. 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.

About the neighbourhood
This is a complete building for the hostel. Construction is ongoing upstairs. The rooftop view-deck, hang out space, washing & basic cooking area may be ready or soon available, (provided you don't mind sharing with our construction team). The upstairs rooms might take 3-5 months more. Skilled carpenters & plumbers are welcome to sleep on the roof in exchange for helping us build our hostel. For rainy humid days when bugs are around, or for visitors sensitive to them, we use natural repellants, herbs and plants. As well, extra mosquito nets are available for some rooms and we offer citronella candles and essential oil deterrents. Let me know if such pesky critters are troublesome & we'll do our best to make your stay more enjoyable..
Getting around
The Hostel is a minute from the market. 5 minutes from the beach  5 minutes from Shuttle van and bus terminal. Motor bike rentals are abundant here.
