I can stay at whatever kind of accommodation. From P100 peso rooms to 5-star luxury ones.
I arrived in the municipality of Siquijor, Siquijor, my second time in this province, and after looking for a place to stay, I got recommended to this P125 (less than $3) lodge near the national road a few minutes walk from the municipal hall. Its a wooden structure named Buhisan Lodge and from the looks of it, might be an oldie in the place
P125! That’s dirt cheap. After staying at GoHotels Dumaguete the previous night, paying P1,106.56, I agreed to stay at this place. It is clean, airy, spacious and, probably, I miss the feel of these kind of structures since childhood. But also, why spend more when there’s a cheaper alternative in a place where you won’t be spending most of the time inside the room?
The toilet and bath are common, found at the ground floor. But my room? Wow, I just like its old feel: comfy, wooden boards all throughout with a window that opens to a view of the back with lots of vegetation. It has an electric fan, two outlets and a small bed with matress and its just enough for me.
The lodge is quite accessible and is just walking distance from the church, the market, the municipal hall and even the pier. It has its own charms in a small but beautiful town where people are friendly.
If you want to stay here, some anti-mosquito lotion can be handy.
It is simplicity.
