There are various hostels, inns, and resorts in the island of Siargao. The type of accommodation you choose can depend on your budget or how you define the word comfortable. 
Pesangan Surf is as easy-going as it could get. It is located just at the main road of General Luna and walking distance from the beach. 

Each room is spacious with a queen-sized bed fit for 2 persons or maybe 3. You have your own bathroom, and, my favorite part, a chill deck just outside your room with a hammock surrounded by dozens of plants and flowers. There are only six rooms within the vicinity.

Rooms are inclusive of the use of the kitchen which is common. You may opt to cook your own meals using the kitchen and its equipment and can store food in the refrigerator. Just be sure to put your name on it and respect the other visitors' labeled containers. When in doubt, ask. Drinking water is available and you may also use the water heater for your hot tea or coffee. Dining area is also open to guests as long as you clean your own mess. Be a responsible guest to avoid unnecessary conflict with other residents and owners. 

The staff are warm and friendly and rest assured that security is their top priority. Guards are in plain clothes to maintain the cool vibe.  

The area is pretty chill. The abundance of trees, flowers, and grass around the resort make the place very homey. There is even a garter-like contraption attached between two trees where you can practice and do routines before the actual surfing.

Ask politely for the Island tours and surf packages which may be arranged by the staff. Also, accommodation and surf packages may also be done to at a cheaper rate for long term guests.

A fan room with a queen-sized bed and a bathroom(with a hot and cold shower) costs Php 1000, good for 2 persons and air-conditioned rooms are worth Php 1,300. Inclusive of the usage of the kitchen and dining area as long as you leave it spic and span after. Drinking water and wi-fi  also included.
