The Cheapest Accommodations In El Nido

Looking for the cheapest accommodations in El Nido? Here, I compiled a list of cheap to mid-ranged priced accommodations such as hotels, resorts, cottages, lodgings, pensions, and inns in El Nido to help you plan your ultimate El Nido budget travel. There were actually a lot of them, but in my list, I only included popular choice among travelers, especially for budget travelers.

Corong Corong Beach Sunset in El Nido

There are several options to book hotels or accommodations in El Nido. A great option is booking online via Agoda, El Nido to guarantee reservation (recommended for peak season). Booking via Agoda is great, convenient, and recommended for peak season travels (November through June); however, the price is 3% to 5% higher than walk-in rates.

So, if you’re super stingy and still want to book a cheaper price, I recommend that you contact the hotel respectively by email or mobile for direct reservations and ask how to reserve upfront.

Choosing the perfect hotel/lodge location

Now, let me help you find budget hotels in El Nido according to their locations. There are actually 3 main locations to choose from when staying in El Nido:

  1. Beach front (Town proper and Calaan) — perfect view to have coffee every morning; overlooking the magnificent Bacuit Bay; and this is where most bars and restaurants are.
  2. Town proper — opportunity to interact with locals and other travelers; where eateries, souvenir shops, bars, night clubs, and nice restaurants are situated. (3 to 8 min walk to-and-fro the beach front or Bacuit Bay). This is where I stayed.
  3. Corong-corong — quiet location, fabulous sunset view, (3 to 5 min tricycle ride to-and-fro the town and the Bacuit Bay).

There are some in Taytay; however, the location is already too far from the El Nido town proper where most main activities are.

  • Hostyle

    This must be very out of date. The prices are very wrong for all the hostels I checked.

    • Ada Wilkinson

      You maybe right but these prices are per walk-in basis that’s why it’s very cheap. If you choose to reserve online using their reservation tool, prices will go up due to admin fees and commission. Other than that, every hotel in El Nido is very cheap if you walk-in.

      • Hostyle

        Oh ok thanks, maybe Ill just book a hotel for day one and walk in to see what I can find once I arrive :)

        • Ada Wilkinson

          Awesome! You can check their location and just walk-in. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  • Tapik Beach Park Guest House

    Hi Ada, i think this only valid at the time it was written. Nowadays there are more cheaper options like those in Eastern Coast of El Nido with much better ratings from TripAdvisor. Like in Tapik the cheapest room we have is 600Php/night only.

    • Ada Wilkinson

      Thank you for the comment! I checked your website but I couldn’t find the cheapest room available for Php 600.00?

  • Von Adrias

    I’m planning to travel on October, solo travel. This might be helpful.
