We arrived at Treffpunkt in the late evening - the big plus is how close the place is to the Puerto Princesa Airport (50-100 peso tricycle ride).
We slept in a 4-bed dormitory (although there were only the 2 of us during our 3 night stay). The rooms are not air conditioned so it got pretty toasty (there was a fan). The bathrooms are alright, but not the cleanest. I would say the overall cleanliness of the place is why I’m rating it as average (e.g. upon our arrival there was trash in the bin in our room).
I remember reading someone’s comment about the rooster waking them up at night - but I found that there would be awake roosters in basically any place we go to 😊
The hostel can help to organize trips (we went to the Underground River) and van transfers to other cities (we went to San Vicente). You can also walk to many food places from there.
Best things of the hostel are the staff (polite, helpful and cheerful) and the breakfast (it changes everyday and could vary from pancakes, to omelette, to break and fruit).
It is a good 25 minutes walking to the centre and just about 5 driving. 40 mins walking from the airport and 10 by tricycle.
Rooms are okay with lockers (bring your own padlock). Unfortunately no a/c, just fans, so also bring your earplugs if you wanna have a good sleep. My room was located just next to the small balcony and there were always people chatting.
One thing which is advertised wrong: the free wifi-only 200mb a day are free, after that you need to pay extra. So if you wanna watch a film or talk to your family/friends on skype as well as maybe planning your trip, forget it!
You can organise tours with the hostel and sometimes they are cheaper.
Very cheap room rates. With Free breakfast (Brewed Coffee, bread and fruits/eggs and delicious pancakes on Sunday). The hostel is so clean and has a chill lounge where you can watch movies, read books or just chill with other guests. Bathrooms/Shower are clean. Staffs are amazing! super friendly and very accomodating, they are always willing to help. ... And Cold Beers are available for only 40PHP each! :)
