We went "local" and stayed in one of these nipa huts for a night in Batad. Our hut is good for 7pax with no electrical outlet. Candle and flashlights only lol. It comes with thin mattresses, pillows and blankets. We should have ask for more blankets because It was so cold at night (we were there feb 9). Shared bathroom is located outside a few stairs down our hut with basic plumbing and freezing water . These huts and their restaurant offers a magnificent view of Batad Rice Terraces so that's really what you're paying for.
Mang Ramon told us that every night he always checked each hut. Making sure that doors should be closed and locked. This is to avoid stray dogs or any animals and insects to wander inside your hut during the night.
We paid 1700 per pax inclusive of transpo from Banaue to Batad, guide fee to viewdeck and Tappiyah Falls, overnight accomodation and transpo going to Sagada (1 way) with sidetrip to Banaue viewpoint and Bayyo terraces viewpoint.

When you have the view of the UNESCO World Heritage acclaimed rice terraces, would you still find yourself busy with Facebook? Nope! But heyy, there's no cellular signal in Batad anyway. Hehe. To celebrate my 30th, we went to Batad and stayed in Mang Ramon's homestay. We trekked for almost two hours to reach this, and that was after the nine-hour ride by bus. I know. With that much effort, we were rewarded with breathtaking view of the rice terraces right in the homestay. Breakfast by the rice terraces sounds good, right? For experience, we stayed in one of the native huts, with nothing but the mattress on it. No fan, no bathroom. They do have shared bathroom though. Food is a bit pricey but considering how they transport stuff in Batad, you'd understand.
Oh, the plus side in staying here, aside from the view, would be the socials after dinner. Mang Ramon will sit with the guests and share stories about Batad. Bonfire stories ftw.
On the night before my birthday, my friends surprised me. Mang Ramon and the others joined us in the celebration. These new friends joined us going to the best view deck the following morning. And hey, we still talk and travel together.
I had a good stay in Mang Ramon's homestay, the view and the new friends I made while I was here were the awesome perks of my stay.
