Zambales - The Circle Hostel, a Backpacker's Haven in Liw-liwa

We went to Liw-liwa with only one accommodation in mind, The Circle Hostel. Basing on what we have read from the internet, it's the best option for budget travelers like us. So, upon reaching the hostel, we were accommodated by Ate Vangie and she discussed the various accommodation options they have.

The Circle Hostel offers a comfortable and affordable beach lodging for surfers, backpackers and beach bums in this side of Zambales. They have a vibrant atmosphere that encourages you to interact and mingle with other guests. Because at The Circle Hostel, "No one is a stranger".

No one would miss the colorful artworks around. They are made by guests, as they encourage you to express yourself and be creative. They provide paints for you to draw or write what you feel at the beams or at their walls.

Various accommodations include bunk beds (350 pesos/head/night), hammocks and tent (250 pesos/head/night), just bring your own tent. We chose the bunk beds which has a comfortable foam, built-in mosquito net and privacy curtains.

They also have Free Wifi, lockers for your valuables (you can bring or rent a padlock), clean toilets, shower rooms with hot and cold water and a grill house where you can cook your food.

The best thing with this hostel is the common area where you can meet and be friends with other guests. They want you to sit down and join the circle! Make new friends and have a blast!

The Circle Hostel is truly a unique accommodation experience, a haven for backpackers!
