    Amazing value for the price”

    The room we got was made for 4 adults, and it was fresh and clean. The facilities like the air conditioning and bathroom were working very well, and we didn’t even expect towels to be given because we thought it was a budget hostel! The breakfast is delicious local food, with a homemade quality. You can refill your water bottles at the reception area, and the staff are very warm and welcoming. Will definitely come back!!

    We’re so glad that we stayed for 3d2n in El Navi! It was very affordable, near the famous places to visit in LU such as Flotsam, El Union, Tagpuan, Kabsat, Makai Bowls, and the beach!! It’s walking distance from everything. The breakfast was also good too!! For an affordable price, it was really value for money. The staff was very friendly. Will book again next time once we visit La Union. It was a wonderful and memorable trip bec we stayed in here :)

    I read reviews online while I was booking and some said that it wasn’t worth the money. Still tried because the location’s really accessible. When we got there, they allowed us to have early check in. The room we had exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and the bedsheets were really clean. The bathroom has some smell at first tho but we didn’t mind because it wasn’t that bad. The staffs were accommodating with every request. Their location was near flotsam, makai bowl, el union. Lastly, we had some scrumptious lunch with their restaurant. In short, we had a really pleasant stay. Will definitely go back here

    Good location, charming resto/cafe, very homey food tastes good (at least the ones I ordered), coffee is good too. Spacious room. Staff were friendly and very accomodating. After checking out, we stayed around LU and took a swim pa. The owner still let us use their communal shower to clean up since we already checked out of our room. They also let keep our parking slot even. So nice and sweet of them. Thank you!!! Will definitely stay here again.

    Great Hostel”

    El Navi is one of the good hostels around the area. Although there was only 1 bathroom for the dorms, it was still a great experience. We were able to meet new friends and enjoy our stay. The worst part about it would be that there are no staff at night, and on Saturdays, LU can be a bit wild — someone puked on the sink in the bathroom and it was just horrible since it clogged the sink. But the moment we all woke up from a good night’s sleep, the puke was gone and I am very thankful for the one who had to clean that up.

Although it’s not literally in front of the beach, you can still reach the shore in just a minute. Great place for young groups who are in a budget.

    Best location; Friendliest customer service”

    It's right beside some of the best restos and cafes (like El Union) and is a very short walk away from the bars like Flotsam and Sebay Surf Camp. Its location and value for money, together with their customer service is what I liked best about the place. The air conditioning was working, the room was well lit, their wifi was very reliable. The staff were nice enough to let me use the shower room even after check out time because my bus for manila was at 10 pm. Looking forward to coming back.

    Just Add Fish pls huhu”

    I found El Navi in this site as my girlfriend and I were browsing through affordable yet decent staying accommodations in San Juan, La Union. Mind you, this town is a hotspot for beachgoers, and the demand for affordable and decent lodgings are rising. El Navi offers a clean place near the beach and other known Elyu hits like El Union Coffee and Flotsam & Jetsam. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay there -- air-conditioned room, heated shower, Netflix on TV, free breakfast... it's a recommended space for backpackers and vacationers Our only concerns or recommendations were: -- Cabinets with hangers for clothes could be a plus. I get it that we are in the area for only a few days, but a cabinet to neatly store our essentials would be a plus. -- I am personally saddened that there was no fish or seafood available during the breakfast in the 3 days we were in. My girlfriend is a pescetarian, and the lack of viable options for her breakfast was unsettling. Overall, ★ ★ ★ ★ ★.

    Staffs makes the experience special, everyone is kind and very accomodating! This is like in the center of all establishments, all just walking distance. Rooms are quite small but very clean, good water pressure and their bed was AMAZING. Very comfy and we just had a very good sleep with their nice duvet. Their breakfast is plated but DELICIOUS. We tried their Corned beef, Tapa and Vigan Longganisa and they are all bomb!! We tried best sellers of Kabsat, Kermit, Masa, Clean Beach, Aureo's bfast buffet, etc. but El Navis breakfast is still remarkable because of its taste ❤️ This is a steal for its price, thank you El Navi we had a great experience! ❤️

    Their dorms are nice with AC. Breakfast is delicious, and the drinks served in the cafe are really good. The staff is accommodating, but they don't have a front desk so better give them a heads-up if you're gonna arrive past 9 pm. Walking distance to the beach. They don't provide towels in the dorm room so be sure to bring your own. I had a nice experience, overall.
