A boutique hotel-like hostel
Sand 1 Hostel is named hostel but is more like a boutique hotel or shared room for 2 or 4 pax. There’s a beach across the street, and this hostel is only a few kilometres away from other famous beaches, like Paliton Beach. Also, at Sand 1 Hostel, you can prepare or cook your food at the shared kitchen.
Best hostel with an in-house party
Chillout Hostel & Bar is located in Larena, Siquijor where one of the seaports is located. Its bar offers a continental or à la carte breakfast and features evening entertainment. Do you want an in-house party? Chillout Hostel & Bar is for you!
Best hostel+cafe on the island
SEE-KEE-HOR Cafe and Hostel is a newly opened hostel in San Juan, Siquijor. It has a 10-bunk bed native hut and a few private rooms for two (with a shared bathroom). Also, it’s only a walking distance to Paliton Beach, the so-called “The Little Boracay” of Siquijor.
