[Review] Flotsam & Jetsam – Artist Beach Hostel

My trip in Manila takes me to some wonderful places and activities in the Philippines such as Zip lining in Tagaytay, visiting Intramuros, and visit one of the famous beach for surfing in San Juan, La Union.

Now, I would like to review one of the best hostels I’ve ever tried when going to the famous beach for surfing in San Juan, La Union. Recommended from a local friend, he told me to stay in one of the unique and artsy hostel in La Union. Well, who would not want to go when your dear friend recommended it, right? So, here I’m staying for a day only but in result gain good friends.

Welcome to Flotsam & Jetsam, the Artist Beach Hostel!

Flotsam & Jetsam is the outcome of its founder’s imagination, Mia Sebastian, Carla Suiza, and Joncy Sumulong. Filled with art, music, and style Flotsam and Jetsam is a perfect place to spend your holiday. For fellow surfers, this hostel located right on Urbiztondo beach where you can directly go to the beach to catch the early waves. At night, guest (and café visitor) can enjoy their dinner or just drinks at their dining area design like a hut complete with a hammock.

Dine Area

The rooms are divided into 4 types of design: Sea Suite, Kubo Dorms. Therefore you can choose which one fit your needs and wallet 😀 . During high season such as when many surfing competition takes place, guest (specially surfers) stay for 1 week to 1 month. So, best to book your room early.
