Welcome to The Circle Hostel Zambales!

So close to Manila in distance but so different in pace and lifestyle, Zambales is a haven for nature lovers and adventure seekers looking for a quick getaway. Learn to surf, take island tours, explore mountain trails or simply sit on the beach and enjoy the view. Are you into timelapse or night photography? Liw-Liwa’s beach is perfect for both. Sometimes, we’ll even start a bonfire.  Zambales is also jump-off point for our community-based tourism projects. Keep checking with us for updates on how to take part in those as well and make your weekend a little more meaningful.
