    Annelynn and her girls are lovely hosts, I felt like part of the familiy! I got a lot of great tips for the rest of my trip in the philippines and met some awesome travellers. The beds are good and simple and the breakfast is great. The location is perfect to just wander around. Or if your looking for the big sights they will help you catch a ride.

    Decent place for stopping over before the islands. Relatively near the airport if you know where to go. Guesthouse has transfer but must be booked in advance, owner seems busy. They only provide the basics but if you ask (nicely) they also have blanket, toilet paper and toiletries. Unlimited refill of water with a cheap donation

    Honestly don’t understand the negative reviews about this place! Stayed for a night between flights and felt immediately welcomed by the owner and her daughters who were all so friendly and interested in chatting. Place was clean in a safe area, bunk beds comfy and good wifi..all you really need as a budget backpacker. I will be staying here again! Only negative would be that when arriving at night it’s quite difficult to find the hostel due to small signage in a very residential area.

    The young lady who took care of me was excellent, provided excellent customer service. She even woke up at 4 in the morning to call me a cab. Everything is within a decent walk of a mall and places to eat like Mc. Donalds, KFC and other places.

    Despite being close the the airport it still took us 45 mins to get there in a taxi due to really bad traffic. The hostel is totally fine for just a stay over between flights and you can buy a cheap breakfast. The bathroom’s shower didn’t work and there was no toilet roll. Good AC

    Unfortunately the only positive thing here is that the people are helpful. This is not a hostel, it is a homestay. There was one other guest there, nobody to mingle with The house is in a very poor area. Although they say it is safe, everyone has a big gate that is locked all the time. It took me over an hour from the airport. Shuttle service was not available. The bathroom sink was hanging off the wall and a lot of personal belongings inside. Private room did not look like in the photo.

    I picked this location for the proximity to the airport....however in Manila there is always traffic going in and out of this location due to there only being 1 road in and out of the neighborhood. The bathroom sink was completely broken, and the hostel did not have any bottled water for me to purchase. The owner was nice enough to offer me filtered water. However, she did not give me change for the stay and I did not have small bills. This hostel owner's children are always around, feels odd.

    It's good because it's close to the airport and I get that people just stay for the night while passing through but it was nasty. The bed itself was comfortable but the staff weren't the nicest and quite rude. There was AC in the room, but I wasn't allowed to use it? So I had two fans blowing hot air all night and the toilet has this fluffy covering which is rank. Plus there's no lockers. All in all, easy enough to stay for the night but don't expect anything nice or a warm welcome.

    Do not stay here. I cannot fathom how this 'hostel' has received any of these seemingly positive, glowing reviews?! We arrived after 2pm and our room (private double) still wasn't ready. The place was filthy with cats roaming everywhere. Our room smelled bad (despite the presence of an aromatherapy diffuser) and there were stains all over the walls. The windowsill contained an array of dead insects and had clearly never been cleaned. We were not provided a key for the room as it had been lost. I

    Previous negative feedback is completely warranted. Dealt with by the young daughter of the owner of this HOMESTAY. Not good vibes, were locked out in the middle of the night, unclean, poor security (no lock on private room), no toilet roll, no running water (when we stayed). We weren’t expecting a palace, but this simply isn’t worth the little money you pay for it. Avoid, you’ll find somewhere for a similar price that isn’t as unpleasant. I expect a catty response as per other bad reviews.
