Green House Inn

banaue_120Green House Inn – Sagada

Far and away the best place for the budget backpacker to stay in Sagada is the Green House Inn.

Just follow the trail behind the Bamboo Grill a short ways up the hill and there is a cozy little house managed by Nora a sweet lady from Baguio.

Singles are only 180 peso and the doubles are 350 in rooms 6 and 9.

You can lose a few days in Sagada very easily walking through the caves and the surrounding countryside. The only drawback to this place is that everything is very organized and a bit expensive to hire the guides that you will need to go into the caves.

The fields around Sagada are easy enough to walk on your own. Tourists are common and the locals will be reserved but helpful, just try to stay on well established trails so you don’t damage the rice paddy walls.

There is a market in town where you can get vegetables to cook back home at the well equipped kitchen in the Green House Inn. Potatoes, onions, tomatoes, sweet peas, oranges, apples, gabi and all sorts of other stuff is available.

There is also a bakery on the same side of the road as Sagada Weaving where fresh breads are baked daily.

Nora has a toaster in the kitchen and you can make some killer tomato and onion sandwiches real cheap.

A thermos of hot water is always available for coffee and tea and a large dispenser of fresh drinking water is on the counter.

There’s big tv in the common room where you can relax and exchange information with other travelers

Charging cell phones costs 15 peso.

The Green House makes no reservations and just treats everyone on a first come first serve basis.
