Hotels in Agusan del Norte - Where To Stay in Butuan City?


I arrived in the bustling city of Butuan at around 4 o'clock on a Friday afternoon. Upon getting out of Bancasi Airport, I took an R5-bound jeepney that brought me to the city center. My original plan is to take a bus to Bislig in Surigao del Sur where the famed Tinuy-an Falls is located. But due to a series of unfortunate events (which I don't want to remember... hahaha!) that happened to me that day, I decided not to push thru with the plan and just stay in Butuan City.



Since I still don't have any reservation at any hostel, I hailed a tricycle and asked the driver to bring me to where the hostels are. Being a highly urbanized city, accommodations abound in this regional center of Caraga Region in Northeastern Mindanao. If you have enough budget to spend, finding an accommodation in Butuan City is a breeze.


But if you're on a tight budget and just want to have a place to keep your things safe and a bed to sleep for a night, you definitely have to be patient in finding a budget-friendly accommodation. Oh, by the way, "budget-friendly" is subjective. Ok? Hehehe! :)


After checking out several hostels, inns and motels, I still can't find a hostel that fits my budget. Good thing a lady directed me to this nice hostel - Julian's Inn Annex.


What's good about this hostel is that it's very affordable, exceptionally clean, has great interiors, near a bar and restaurant, internet cafe and other establishments. It is actually just a 5-minute ride from Gaisano Mall.


It is also not on the main road, which I like! Being off the main road, the sorroundings are quieter and a lot less chaotic than if it's in the main thoroughfare.



Room rates are as follow:

Standard (Fan) - PHP 280 (daily) or 4,200 (monthly)
Standard (Aircon) - PHP 390 (daily) or 5,850 (monthly)
Superior (Aircon/CR) - PHP 480 (daily) or 7,200 (monthly)

  1. Oh, I am not aware that this backpackers hostel as affordable as this exist in Butuan City. I thought that the hostel in the city center which I and my wife stayed last February 23 was the cheapest. I'll surely find this hostel the next time around. Thanks for sharing this.
