Sagada Guesthouses/Hostels

Sagada is the new Baguio! Don't worry, it's not because of a ballooning population nor pollution... I can say this now because of better, paved roads from Banaue to Bontoc to Sagada. Though the project is not entirely finished, it will definitely make a topload ride more comfortable.


Unless it's Holy Week, Undas or Christmas break, there's no need to book ahead. Sagada has a number of guesthouses and hostels, and it's always better to do an ocular first before checking in so you can find the perfect room to suit your budget and other personal preferences. Hereunder is a list with corresponding contact numbers. I did not gather this information myself, I only found it misprinted at the back of my Sagada Adventure Packages brochure. Yes, the brochure is computer-printed. Anyway, I have not tried calling any of the numbers (I've always stayed at Ohlabinan's because of their second floor balcony), so I cannot assure you that they are indeed the numbers to call.

thanks jhonnie! my personal fave is ohlabinan. P300 for 1 pax, P400 for 2, P600 for 3. they have a nice 2nd flr balcony overlooking lush greenery, perfect hangout for coffee or alco at night! it's near the market and municipal hall.

the other guesthouses are quite as nice, if it's not a weekend, you can check out the other accommodations. price range almost the same

safe trip! drop by this link:

This is really one place here in the Philippines that I'd like to visit before it becomes very commercialized. The info here would definitely be very useful. =)

Thanks for dropping by my site. =)
