The place was very nice, quiet and peaceful. The room and bathrooms were clean and the staff are very accommodating.
Love the concept of this hostel quiet unique, the staffs are friendly and approachable, clean rooms, toilet and bath are. They are also close to the airport and the city proper, I just love it!
Large, clean rooms and facilities. Friendly staff can help with travel tips, scooter rental, etc. Would highly recommend when staying in Dumaguete!
I'm a returning guest and will always choose this hotel whenever I'm in Dumaguete!
No options yet for food. But it was a great choice. Well maintained. Staff are very nice and courteous.
Very nice ambiance. The only thing I didn't like was the lock of the door, so hard to unlock and lock
One of the best looking hostels I stayed at - here in the Philippines. I love the industrial look of the room plus the spacious garden in the front. The rooms are spread out in the open - giving you more light and breathable space. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Dumaguete soon.
Accessibility and comfort make my vacay fantastic!
Perfect everything! location, safety and comfortable place to stay in. highly recommended for both solo and group travelers.
This place is so cool. I had great 2 nights stay on the 6 mixed bed dorm type room. Receptionist and other staffs were so kind and helpful. Even their contact habal is so friendly. Will definitely book here again if ever I came back to dumaguete. Love this place!

Friendly Staff, nice room - lack of privacy in superior room
As I just had a 30 hours journey I wanted to treat my self good and choose the superior room. The interior is very nice, the bed comfy and the room had enough space for me as a solo traveller, but I would say even for two. Waterheater is still not working but that's no problem for me if the outside temperature is about 30 degrees. Thought that was a very good choice until I came back in the evening and the dorm next door was occupied. I was able to literally follow the whole conversation and understood every single word! Same thing of course early in the morning. Not what I expected to get if I pay 1400P a night.   Except of that I was very satisfied! The staff knows the area very well and happily answer every question. The general atmosphere is relaxed, Wi-Fi is good in the common area and a short walk or tricycle drive from everything else. I would definitely stay here again! But I would chose the dorm or the standard room (which have as far as I can tell no dorms next to it) as it seems there you get what you pay for. My rating is 5 stars for the staff, general atmosphere and environment and 1 star for the lack of privacy in the superior room.

'Deluxe' Room is misleading.
The dorms seem reasonable value and the shared spaces have a nice backpacker vibe to them. A few things are lacking from this. No tea and coffee- unless you buy it from them, no possibility to cook or prepare food there. But as a deluxe room for 1200 php per night - cold water only, a room with gaps in the windows with mosquitoes everywhere. Is outrageous. We were asked to move rooms after one night and if it wasn't an upgrade it would have been terrible- bit it landed us with a mega nice expensive room. if you have cash to spare - go big here or stick to a dorm!

If i knew before..
My boyfriend and I, didn't really enjoyed the stay there. Before we went, we read the reviews, and we decided to book it. But it was a real mistake. although it was written, that the hostel has a great concept, to us seemed old and dirty. the picture doesn't really reflect the reality. There was no hot water in the room, and the water was really weak. Sometimes they have problems with electricity, so no water at all. The place is full of mosquitoes. and the wifi barely work we dont recommand it at all

Great for Big Group!
Note that this is a hoStel not a full blown hotel and as such some adjustments in expectations should be expected. The place has a quaint, industrial feel to it. Near the city center yet far enough from all the noise and hustle and bustle. Great for backpackers and a cheap option for big groups at an average of 500 Philippine Pesos per night. They have great staff members as well. Special shout out to their tour provider, Handstand Tours c/o Heather Perocho who can tailor fit any itinerary based on your schedule.
