    The hostel itself was good. A great place to stay for a night or two. Anything more than that would be too long. The hostel has its own armed guard who worksevenings making us feel safe but at the same time threatened. We did not feel safe walking along the road at night. The majority of the men in the area would stare at me and make sexually suggestive sounds and gestures as well as cat calling. The area is close to the beach but also a bit sketchy. The staff of the hostel were amazing though.

    Great staff. Unfortunately constant rain from the typhoon hitting the air con unit kept us up at night (even with ear plugs) after a sleepless flight. But that can't be helped. Really helpful in getting a grab taxi for us as app wasn't working in my phone to get us to the South bus terminal for half 6 😊 hope the construction works end soon and the new paint job looks great

    Was very disappointed to find I couldn’t check in early, after emailing ahead. The reason for my main disappointment was when I eventually checked in, finding out I was the only one in the room and that the hostel was basically empty...unable to understand why I couldn’t check in? Instead waited 6 hours. No toilet roil in communal toilet or in my room...which is very disappointing!! Apart from this, basic, clean and great located hostel to the airport.

    This is good place if you want to stay a night or two when arriving in Cebu. There are supermarkets and places to eat a short walk away. You can also take a 10 min taxi to the beach. The facilities are quite basic which is why we aren’t rating it more highly and we were the only people in the hostel. The staff were great and very friendly and helpful!

    Staff were very friendly and helpful, nice to have the security guard outside too. Facilities were quite average,no curtains or lights for the bed and in the bathroom no shower curtain so the toilet and surrounds got wet post shower. Rain Shower head did not work as such due to the water pressure.Overall, value for money was average. Also, very difficult to catch a cab/Grab early hours of the morning(~3:30am)due to the location, so consider this is selecting the hostel due to proximity to airpor

    The only thing appealing was probably the cost.
