Six (6) Budget-friendly Accommodations in Camiguin Island, Philippines

One of the few questions that we ask ourselves, when we plan to go on a travel is, “Where should I stay?” Well, google has a lot to offer for sure but this article will give you a run down of affordable and budget-friendly cottages, inns or hotels in Camiguin Island. You don’t have to spend so much to enjoy your best trip ever! Here is a list of rooms that cost below Php1,000.00 – Php1,500.00. 

1. GV Hotel

GV Hotel is located at the heart of the capital town- Mambajao.  I believe that the place is perfect for those who are really on a tight budget and stay out often during the day (It gets pretty noisy at daytime as beside it is a basketball court). Food and public transports are not a problem here since grocery stores and snack bars are just around the corner plus it’s right beside a highway.

  • Pros: Near Mambajao Highway, San Nicholas Church, Market and Grocery Stores. They also have motorbikes available for rent. You may inquire inside. (Owner is someone working in GV Hotel)
  • Cons: Old, dusty and gets noisy at daytime
