Casa de Viajeros in Baler is Your Home Away From Home
There are three things that I highly consider when "travelling on a budget" and the most important is staying in a comfortable yet affordable hotel or inn. As a budget traveler, it is extremely important for me to take into consideration the "pricing" of a hotel or inn. Staying in a pricey room accommodation would definitely "eat"much of my budget and this is something that I don't want to happen. Good thing we found Casa de Viajeros in our recent three-day Baler, Aurora escapade! They've definitely made our stay in Baler memorable and affordable!
Casa de Viajeros (if the Spanish I've learned back in my old UP days serves me correct) directly translates to "House of Travelers," and I'm pretty glad we've decided to stay here. It's absolutely perfect for "travelers on a budget" like us. Situated at the heart of Baler, Casa de Viajeros is accessible to the public. They offer air-conditioned rooms at reasonable prices.

The Customer Service
Customer service is another thing that I highly consider when staying in a hotel or inn. An excellent customer service would definitely make one's stay memorable and extraordinary. Big thanks to Casa de Viajeros for the warm welcome and for their hospitality! Tita Virgie was absolutely nice and she was very accommodating. We arrived in Baler around eight in the evening and we were gladly welcomed. Tita Virgie also invited us to watch the live acoustics performance of some local bands (I learned from Tita Virgie that they have acoustics performances on Saturday nights). We were exhausted when we arrived due to the eight-hour bus ride so we were not able to watch the performance.

Yes, it's "rooms" because we transferred to another room on our second night. We love the first room because it's spacious but we're pretty much happy because we've got to try other rooms offered by Casa de Viajeros. It has aircon, two beds, private C.R. and a cable-tv. Big thanks to Tita Virgie for offering us the other room.

Look for this spot (see image below) in Baler, turn right and walk for at least five to ten minutes (depending on how fast you walk) and you'll definitely find Casa de Viajeros. (If you plan to ride a tryke, as of this writing, it will cost you Php12.00/head). If you have a private vehicle and in case you don't know where the place is, I recommend that you look for the spot below.
