Homey Hostel”

This is one of the best hostel I've ever been. I liked it very much staying there. The room is cold even with just a fan as source of ventilation. It's also has a chill and homey vibes. I just hope that the road going here will be fixed as it so hassle to go in and out because of the muddy road. Also, maybe some of the staffs like the receptionist needs to be trained and educated that there should be at least some professionalism when it comes in interacting with the guests, especially the newly arrived ones and not to share their personal intimate life (which no is really interested). But on the guest's point of view it's really a bit of awkward hearing it. I'm not telling this for some personal reasons, but I've been to hospitality industry for quite sometime and I know this kind of behavior can affect the company. :)

Had fun staying”

It's my first time in Siargao and stayed at Ilakai for its good reviews. Indeed, the place is very homey and the people there are so friendly. Made friends with the other travelers, too. Just really hope that the access road will get fixed soon since it's hard to go in and out due to the rough and muddy road. But I really had fun. Next time, I will stay here again for sure. Thanks!

Have a hard time looking for the hostel, no signage visible outside. The way to the place is difficult, the road is too narrow, rough road, no signage nor direction which way to go, and the road is flooded..

Superb stay!”

When we got to Siargao very early in the morning, we went to Ilakai first hand to drop our stuff initially since check-in time was in the afternoon. But to our surprise, we were accommodated immediately in the morning which was super nice specially since we came from a connecting flight and we really needed sleep. People at Ilakai were very friendly. We never felt like a stranger to them. First day we got there, we surfed already in the afternoon at Santa Fe. Super stoked! Hopefully we come back again soon. Thank you Kai and team!

Good value for money”

If you are looking for a good place to stay but at a cheaper yet reasonable price, Ilakai is the best place for it. The room was cozy enought for two persons and the location is very near cloud 9 and other restos. The only downside though is their entrance - it doesn't have any signages or lights at night so it is a bit scary going in and out at night. Hoping that they would fix their entrance as it affects the impression of their arriving guests.

The staff will make you feel at home!”

Stayed here while WFH, they have the most decent data connection and wifi. The common kitchen is a big plus since food around the area are expensive, this will help you save money. The are got a few food places famous in Siargao like Catangnan BBQ and Kanaway Snack Bar, both are just stone throws away.

I was greeted with smiles as I enter the hostel. Appreciated the staffs who helped us to get into the room. It feels so homy and diversed. I love how welcoming they are. Their staffs are so polite and all smiles always. They have a gym! In terms of cleanliness, I would say 5/5. There were cleaners round the clock just to maintain the beauty of the hostel. It’s quite and away from the hustle and bustle of General Luna but it is just a motorbike away if you rent one to get into shops, bars, restos and coffee shops. See you again, Ilakai!

Budget Friendly ”

Worth your money. Location is good with in Catangman area there are restaurants around the area so you dont have to worry. Also you can buy your own food and cook in the kitchen. Owner and staff are friendly and helpful. The room is not so clean maybe because i went there months after the devastating typhoon Odette. Nonetheless, will recommend it especially to those budget travellers.
