Great food, very accommodating/friendly staffs, clean room and bathroom, location is near malls, grocery, convenience store, public market, tourist spot
Feels like at home. Everything is so accessible
Service is very kind. Breakfast is complete with rice, bread, tea, coffee, totally amazing. Although location is hard to find because its inside small streets, but being away from main road is quite good that makes it relaxing. Room is quite old, but is best for the worth of your money with its impressive ambience, cozy living room, wifi, and full breakfast meal.

A Home Away from Home in Bicol!
Our stay in this simple but nice & clean guesthouse is a memorable one. The moment we alighted from the taxi, Jerson is already at the gate to welcome & assist us. He is very helpful, friendly & accommodating. After leading us to our room, he volunteered to order for our food since they don’t have a restaurant where guests can have dinner. It’s like living in a big house with many rooms. The lobby of the guesthouse functions as a living room at the same time. There is also free wi-fi at the lobby and one will love the relaxing & soothing sound of the flowing water at the lobby. The breakfast is great and you can have coffee, Milo or tea any time of the day. Rooms are nice, cozy and clean. A 5-minute walk will bring you to a grocery store where you can buy almost anything you need. No wonder, guests who had previously stayed in Balai Tinay say nothing but praises. To the future budget-conscious guests, have a nice stay!

Awesome guesthouse!
Nothing to complain! The guesthouse it's very charming. The owner is very helpful with every question (dry our wet clothes, organize excursion to the volcano, and so on...). We had to spend the afternoon at the guesthouse waiting for our flight and we could hang out on the couches and drink free coffee and tee. An home away from home. Thank you again!

A good place to stay!
Loved the look of the place--very home-y and relaxing. It's accessible from the main road--less than 5-minute walking distance. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. When I arrived a bit early, Jerson cleaned up the room pretty quickly so I can check in immediately. Fast wifi too--though you can only access it from the lobby.

Homy Sweet Home!!!
The place is simple and comfortable place to stay. The room we booked is for 2 person,it has TV , AC and a hot shower but we only stay for overnight. Also, I love the breakfast, the unlimited coffee, the WiFi and the cold breeze while chatting and relaxing at kitchen area. Walking distance from the market and other establishment and means of transportation. Lastly, the owner and the staff is very accommodating. Hope to comeback sometime.

Home away from home
We stayed for a night last weekend before heading to Misibis Bay. it was a last minute booking, good thing we still got rooms for 6 people. I got interested because the place looks cozy & has good reviews. It was not easy to locate, but I actually like that is not situated on a busy street of Legazpi City. The owner is so accommodating. We arrived much earlier than the check-in time (9am), and he let us use one of the rooms (we booked 2 rooms) so we can freshen up before our city tour. He chatted with my father over a cup of coffee while waiting for us to be ready for the tour. The place is very clean & quiet, a very plus points for me. Rooms (Family Room & Room A)are spacious & air conditioning units are new. Heater is working well. WIFI in our room is strong since our rooms are near the common area. I met the owner's wife before our dinner & she suggested where to dine. The male staff is very helpful & nice. Since our service car had already left, he taught us how to get to the restaurant by commute. The female staff was a bit shy but helpful too. It was actually my birthday when we stayed there & we had a little celebration before dinner & they provided all our needs. We enjoyed our breakfast too. I love the seared saba (banana). We enjoyed our stay & would definitely recommend it to others.
