Hostels, practically non existant. But there are some backpacker accomodations in MALATE.
hotels are cheap if you have Dollars,yen or euro. So stay at the hotels in MALATE, like the Manila Pavillion.

Come to Manila, then get out ASAP! there are 7,107 options.
Hit Boracay and stay there forever. Boracay has backpack hostels.

you mispelled "the Philippines"

CEBU is urban with some great beaches. Its a Manila with less pollution.

BORACAY has the finest sand in the world. But to me its a devoid of culture.
Still it is a mecca for the beautiful people of Manila. Its a party place for the ultra rich locals and the backpacking foreigners. 10 TIMES better than the beaches of BALI and Phuket. BUT it is devoid of CULTURE.

siargao...SUPPOSED surfers paradise.
Aurora? never heard.

In all fairness, the local crowd is cool and they speak English.

Check out, Zamboanga, Asia's Latin City and exit to MALAYSIA.
