We were left on our own... no services rendered by the hotel...
The hotel's staffs were not very accomodating. It is not convenient for a traveler who have important business transaction. Plus the television inside my room have very very bad reception. Thus, it is the most worst and disgusting hotel I've ever stayed in my entire life.

A marginal place to stay while waiting for a bus to Banaue
Found this place on google maps. It is the closest place where one can sleep in relation to a number of bus stations including ohayami where we were scheduled to leave for a 9pm trip to Banaue. Problem was, we had arrived from Canada at midnight and gone on a hike up mount maculod which didn't bring us back to the city and we needed a shower and a few hours of sleep The shower was passable for warmth and pressure. But the bathroom was poorly designed such that a large puddle formed and drained poorly = wet feet on every trip to the bathroom. There were cockroaches throughout the room. Indeed, they were crawling on the checkin desk when we arrived Sleep was non-existent because of sound transmission from the hallway. Plus the air conditioner was set to cold and the receptionist had taken the remote The price was good and the location was good if you need a place to shower before catching a bus. But don't expect to get much sleep here

Basic Place, basic amenities !!
This place has all the basic amenities & can be looked as a place for overnight stay on tight budget. I have stayed at this place only once when I was on a tight budget. The place is value for money. You also get some fillipino food options.

Good enough to sleep
The location is the best positive of this hotel as this is very close to the Bus Terminals although I would think the locality is a bit suspect but I am not sure though...This is in Manila but far from the noisy streets. The rooms are very small, but you really don't care if you'll just stay overnight...For longer stay, I won't recommend Lakbayan. It is clean, and very boutique with lots of paintings. The service is just so basic but the price is cheap (Manila Standards).

Just the basics
Ok, so I needed a place to stay overnight near UST, where I will take a written exam. This is the nearest I found online, so I booked it at pretty low price about 4 weeks prior to my stay. Pros: 1. It's homey and wholesome upfront. The lobby was clean, with decent paintings hanging on the walls, wooden staircase that feels like this used to be a family house. 2. Location. It is only a short block away from both Espana avenue and Lacson avenue, two major veins in the heart of Metro Manila. UST gate 1 is just a block away, Perpetual Soccour Hospital is also just one block away, there's a ministop a block away, 7/11 three blocks away, restaurants like (Shakey's and Goldilocks) a few blocks away. 3. There are laundry machines downstairs for rent, and an eatery that serves tapsilog and sisig next to it. Rooms come with air-conditioning, cable TV, and hot shower. All the basic necessities are there. Cons: 1. Poor maintenance. My first room had a broken sink, so when I brushed my teeth all of the sewerage gushed out from under the sink. I was transferred to another room that has no window and no hot shower. 2. I could hear the people in the next room, and people walking down the lobby. In my first room, I could hear the traffic from outside. At 2am, while studying, I could hear romping from another room. That's pretty embarrassing. 3. No phone and no wi-fi. The lack of wi-fi was okay because my smartphone had 4G mobile data capacity, but the lack of a phone was a little of a disadvantage. I needed an early wake-up call for my exam. Overall, it is pretty basic. It has all you need for an overnight stay if you need to be in the area. But that's pretty much it. I would recommend it for backpackers who need a place near UST for any reason. It is inexpensive and there is real value in the superb location alone.
