TV wasn’t working. The floor was sticky as a glue. No toiletries and towels ready when we came in, we went back to the lobby to ask for them. The only thing that we liked was the location since it’s accessible to multiple spots like SM.
10.0
The staff were nice, good temperature, nice and clean sheets.
9.1
The ambiance is good. The only problem is the comfort room on the dormitory. No water.
7.0
The hotel is just walking distance to SM City Cebu.
6.0
Room was dirty especially the toilet supper dirty staff never tell me that in a dormitory room men and woman can mix together I mean in the same room I was shocked when I wake up in the morning and saw guys inside the room. Staff was not accommodating ever.
8.5
Relaxed, no disturbances so far and good air-con. Keep it up.
6.7
Not the best, but I would choose to stay there again. It's a good place for backpackers. You can have a solo or shared room at an affordable price, equipped with Wi-Fi, and Aircon.
9.1
Room has no lock. I guess that's the normal on this place. Still comfortable. Location is great. Just 5mins away from SM. Friendly staff.
6.3
Didn't advise us that we will be sharing a room with 2 other person since it was a dorm Room. But what we booked is a dorm room with only 8 guests/room since we are 8 pax

Not good
The location is good as it's near SM city (bus station) but the hostel is not really good. I paid 450p/night in a 10p dorm. The bathroom was really bad, couldn't take a shower as there were no water! The staff was really not helpful and not nice to me. Wouldn't recommend it.

Ok stay for one night
The hostel is quite compact, especially the reception area. Service/Staff - The reception staff were funny and very helpful, drawing us a map of Cebu and all the best spots and how to get there. They took my bags up to the dorm for me too! The Room - Unfortunately they were super stuffy, but had 2 huge electric fans blasting. A bit noisy but you get used to it. The Rooms were clean enough. Bathrooms - They were OK, not that welcoming as the arrangement of toilets and shower cubicles were quite awkward and tight fitting. Could do with some refreshing. Location - Ok Location with a quite a few places to eat around the area. Overall OK stay but just for a night - some refurbishment would be great to modernize and refresh the place!

Great staff, clean and nice.
Clean and friendly. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Dominique in the reception is very knowledgeble about good destinations in the Philippines and takes his time to assist the guests in a very welcoming and warm manner. I had a great time and can highly recommend the hostel!

Good for a stopover
Nice large rooms with very good aircon. However not the most sociable hostel as no communal area to socialise. Bathrooms are decent too, cold water showers but this is standard for the Philippines. Good value for money.

Perfect stop over accomodation
We stayed twice whilst passing through Cebu, the dorm rooms were basic but clean, comfortable and cheap! In one of the rooms we stayed in the shower didn't work (no pressure just a dribble) but the second time the shower was fine. We had aircon both times, I would recommend as it's very humid in the city. Location is very good, walking distance to the mall, 150peso to the airport and not too far from either bus station. The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful, they helped us plan our whole trip around Cebu and told us how much we should be paying so we didn't get ripped off. It's not an overly social hostel but I think that's because most people are staying before leaving for somewhere else - Cebu city isn't a very nice place!
