Located on a small street in Liw-Liwa, San Felipe, Zambales, just 5 minutes away from the beach, The Circle Hostel is a great place for solo travelers who just to meet new people, or for groups looking for a budget-friendly place for the weekend.

The Circle Hostel in Zambales is part of a chain of eco-hostels in the Philippines catering to surfers and backpackers who are looking for a community atmosphere and budget-friendly lodging.


Instead of private rooms, The Circle Hostel makes use of open-air dwellings, shared spaces and dorm-style bunk beds. Owners of the hostel encourage guests to grab a bucket of paint and a brush to leave their mark here. Thus, the whole space is very vibrant and colorful, with lots of quotes on surfing and paintings adorning the walls, rafters, and stairs.
