It was good as always. It was the second time around that we stay there.
I think you need to clean your AC because it's not working fine. Lots of black ants all over the room and I don't know where they came from. Nevertheless, people are nice and you can find food near the place.
Great deals and great rooms! Nice ambiance and accessible!
Nice place to stay. walking distance from Alona Beach.
I like my stay here so near to the public beach of alona and not so expensive with friendly stuff
Affordable and clean, nice staff, very accommodating
Very polite and helpful staffs, convenient location close to the beach, perfect for transit or an overnight stay.

We booked this hotel as we had recently stayed in a dormitel hotel when travelling around Philippines and had an above average stay. However, this stay was different. Although greeted by a lovely man on reception, when we got to our room it was very run down compared to the other which we had stayed at. The walls were dirty, the fan wasn't the best, the throw on the bed was tiny, the bed creaked loudly from a tiny movement, there was a cockroach in the bathroom and ants on the wall, worst of all there was a horrible stench coming from what I assume to be the drains in the bathroom. Also, during the middle of the night the electric went off meaning the fan went off and we woke up sweating. When another guest confronted reception about this, he said it was due to maintenance and would be off all day, which none of us were told about. The one positive was that the hotel is situated In a good location with alona beach being a 5 min walk away and plenty of shops and restraunts close by. If it wasn't for the location, I would not recommend this hotel.

Lots of insects!
The rooms are actually a block of huts away from the reception. Due to the way they've been built the rooms are really damp and smell awful. There were hundreds of ants the first morning we woke up, all crawling in our bags. So we changed rooms and had to empty all our bags out. Outside the rooms it's like an alley so it's also damp and wet which attracted more ants, cockroaches and caterpillars to our room. The wifi doesn't work 'it's not very strong' the reception said. I don't understand why these hotels don't just say there is no wifi rather than advertise wifi but it doesn't work. Overall if you're looking for a bed and not much else then it's good because it's cheap and 10 mins to the beach and restaurants.

Good quality for price
Double rooms, small but new and comfortable, with private bathroom, for a reasonable price. Location is a bit hidden, but walking distance to Alona Beach. Wifi does not reach the rooms. You can expect electricity cuts... but I guess that everywhere in the area.

Tiny and basic, but cheapest ensuite you can find in Alona
Rooms were clean, but very basic and extremely tiny. A plus was the quiet ceiling fan and an ensuite bathroom. Staff were polite enough, but the insistence of payment upfront and a deposit on top of that wasn't very pleasant. No wifi in room, but worked in reception - however it would be nice if they would set up some more seating and a table for guests to use the wifi. Area was quiet, which was great. However, the street to go to the center was very dark at night. We stayed here because of the good price (790 pesos per night IIRC), which was the best price for an ensuite room we could find.
