I stayed in Hop Hostel a few years ago with a group of friends from Europe, and I must say I was taken by surprise on how much I like this place – A LOT.
Hop Hostel is undoubtedly one of the top ten hostels I’ve stayed in since I started backpacking Europe and Asia during and after my college years. Upon arriving, you’ll be immediately impressed by the facade and exterior of the hostel. It’s all painted in white with a touch of blue hues, resembling many buildings you see in Greece!
The rooms itself were immaculate. The interiors have plenty of space to store your luggage without feeling like you are on top of your other roommates. All of the beds in the room are very comfortable, as well. They are wide and cushy and will ensure you get a good night’s sleep after a day of island hopping. Also, the rooms are well-kept and cleaned religiously by the staff.
But the hostel’s main selling point is their rooftop bar, where you can catch Coron’s legendary sunsets with a drink in your hand. The overall atmosphere is excellent, with a DJ and the social vibe of the bar!

This hotel is located just a short distance off the main road in Coron Town Proper. It was quick, easy, and cheap to get a ride into the main town.

Here are a few reviews from previous guests on booking.com
“We came all the way from Isabela province, and we were really exhausted when we arrived. To our surprise, the chef (whom we mistakened as the owner) offered us ice-cold pandan juice and cold towel the minute we stepped in. It was really refreshing! Moreover, the food was really great, we really loved the burgers, Mediterranean salad, and buffalo wings. We even met the owner, Sir Jojo, who was really very accommodating and down to earth. When we were a day away from leaving the island, I informed the front desk officer that our flight the next day would be early. She offered to prepare sandwiches for us since we will not be able to have our breakfast at the hotel. Overall, a totally magnificent experience!” – Francis, Philippines
“Vela terraces was the perfect little stay for my partner and I. It was beautiful and clean! The hotel was situated in the perfect position, close enough to town that it was so easy to get to, 3-minute tricycle, or a 10-minute walk! And far enough that my partner and I had no issue sleeping, it was nice and quiet. The staff at Vela Terraces were second to none, all so friendly and hospitable- really made us feel at home. Huge shout out to Marvin at reception, I’ve never met such a professional, sweet human before. He went above and beyond for my partner and I, and really made our stay at Vela a stay we won’t ever forget. Miss you, Marvin!”– Amy, Australia

“Just left this amazing place and felt the need to share the feeling. Paul, his wife, and the girls working there, Anika, Rose, and Dada are super welcoming and made us feel at home from the moment we got there.
We stayed two nights at the treehouse and must say it was an incredible experience – the peace and quiet and being so close to nature, it was a dream come true to me.
The complimentary upgrade was much appreciated!
The following two nights, we stayed in one of their nice, little bungalows, and it was perfect too.
They helped us organize our day tours, and the group they rely on is excellent.
Just 10 min walk to town.
Definitely staying there again when back in Coron! Thank you for the lovely time!”– Favoretto, Italy
