Decent clean place. Dorms are small with no storage. Has a little cafe upstairs. The damage to the keyring policy is hilarious. Flor is amazing. She really helped me out. I would stay here again. I got pick pocketed by some street kids in cebu so watch out!!

A good hostel in a not so great city. Transport links are good; close to South Bus and easy jeepneys to SM and Ayala Centre. Good people and helpful. Beds in dorms are very short and no room for bags is the only drawback. In comparison to other options its streets ahead.

Great staff! Left a pair it $200 sunglasses which they kept safe for me to collect. Beds are comfy. Good for a night in cebu.

Very clean, well run and simple hostel. Run more like a hotel really, lots of branding. You could be anywhere in the world. Location average, I ended up relying on taxis to get downtown. I would (am) staying here again as the staff are very friendly and helpful, air con is on all day and it's clean and well kept. Ideal for 1-2 nights pit stop in Cebu. Would recommend it to others.

Only stayed one night but overall it seemed like a good budget hostel. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the rooms were very clean! I would complain that the rooms are extremely small though, the beds were probably only five and a half feet long so my legs were hanging off the side. There is no room to set your bags down so we ended up having to stack our bags on top of each other to make any room on the floor. The room is aircon which was necessary when having 8 people crammed in there

Small place at a prettt noisy street without real common area (except for the very tiny and unpopular rooftop bar with nice breeze). Beds are really small, so if you're above average tall think twice. The dorm room is so small (with 8 beds crammed into it) that it is kind of hard to find a place to put your stuff on the ground. This said, the place looks clean ans they put quite some effort into giving it a professional appearance (e.g. branded soap and shampoo on the bed).

Conveniently located on a street to catch jeeps. Nearby street food options. Beds were short, but fine. Fast wifi though did not work for our entire stay. There were several public toilets/showers and were clean, though staff had to be reminded daily to stock tissue paper. Friendly staff, no help for advice on day trips outside the city but knew stuff within Cebu well. One annoyance is stayed several days had to change rooms each day. Towels provided. Small drawers, not lockers.

The beds are very short - I'm 5'4 and had trouble fitting. There's only three showers that are in the bathrooms so you often have to wait to go to the bathroom or shower. Constantly out of toilet paper and the staff don't refill it for you. Poor ventilation. No common area to hang out. It's cheap but not worth it. I left a day early because it smelled so bad in my room. Poor location - nothing around.

Good hostel in Cebu!!

Very nice staff and the hostel is small, so there's no problem with being too far away when you need something. The staff do need a little more local knowledge, i.e. how to get to places, the cheapest method, what to avoid etc. Maybe they could have information sheets set up to take away for travellers who are going to certain destinations. Print them out, leave them on the reception and so they are not so bombarded with questions they don't know the answers to. Difficult to get correct info.

Great place. Beds were a little small. So anybody that is over 6' tall would have a problem sleeping. Rooms were a bit cramped as well. But what made it great was the staff was always so helpful and accomodating. Also this is a great hostel to meet people to do various tours in and around Cebu (to Oslob for whale sharks, or Moalboal for waterfalls and diving, or to head to Bohol) i met many people where that i ended up travelling with for a bit. Definately my first choice to stay in Cebu

The hostel was adequate. Cheap but with no facilities to socialize. Laundry charges were very high compared to other hostels in The Phillipines. Dorm rooms were tiny. All in all pretty average! Staff were friendly and helpful though. I havent stayed in other hostels in Cebu so I have nothing to compare it to.

Stayed 2 nights here as a base to go to oslob for whale shark watching. About 10 minute cab ride to the bus station that the bus to oslob goes from. Taxi cost us 100 pesos. Bathroom is tiny, shower head right in front of the sink, small room, but clean and did the job.

A good place to stay in Cebu. The dormitory are pretty small. Hot shower and a really good wifi everywhere even in the room. A goog value for the money

Really nice and social staff! Location was good, not far from the city. Take a cheap jeepney or taxi. Small and nice rooftop restaurant and good food! Good for budget and backpackers. Only thing the beds are to small for many people. I Recommend this hostel!!

The hostel seems to be nice but as soon as we (4) arrive at 3am the place was already full and our booking was wrong, we did't have enough place to stay. The person in charge tryied to do something but the best solution was give us the money back and say we do sorry but there are just 2 beds available it did not matter that we have booked

Stayed here a couple nights. Met some friends for life, the location is good, close to many things and only a short Jeepney ride to the clubs. The place was clean enough and the staff is Filipino so of course very nice and polite. It lacks a central common area except the restaurant upstairs. It may be because I'm still getting used to Asia but having to shower in a toilet stall with no room to maneuver or hang your cloths just sucks. If you need a good cheap place to stay that is safe its OK.

Beds in hostel were really short, even with 170 cm you can`t sleep well and after not sleeping well for 2 nights you will feel exhausted. Breakfast is for 100 pesos - nice but there is no coffee or tea included... Some staff in hostel was very helpful, some not, so it depends. Be careful when you are going out from washing stand (sinks) area, during morning it can be very slippery.
