    It’s a nice hostel. Friendly and helpful staff. The area is not too fancy. From the outside it looks sketchy. But it’s a nicer place inside.

    Great hostel with a massive common area and dining space. Good shower and toilets with shared sinks, cleaned daily but by end of the day could be a little messy. Good private beds. People wear shoes throughout hostel so floors get a bit messy. No AirCon in common area so get very hot during the day, that is the only mark down for facilities. To escape heat you have to go sit in your bed.

    Showers are amazing and the setup is perfect. Beds are nice and I liked the common room. Not the best location, in a bit of a back alley. But Grab cars can get into this street so not a problem. Would come here again if I stay in Cebu again

    Brand new, very clean and secure hostel. Located very close to the seaport, and the airport, my reason for choosing this hostel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, laundry service was quick and cheap. Great hostel for a quick pass through, other than that don’t expect much in terms of nightlife and making friends. Lots of middle aged men in my mixed dorm that were snoring up a storm

    Good hostel with clean and comfy beds. Weird location, but just a 5 minute walk to the seaport to catch ferries to other islands.

    To my surprise, I walked into the hostel to see the worst possible sign - no internet. I never did have internet during my 24 hr stay. I also did not have warm water. I complained and they offered a solution, which I accepted. The staff was very nice and if you want the A/C on or anything - just ask them. Overall, it was clean and the rooms had curtains and an outlet. You can get a small locker if you want. You have to pay a large security deposit of 500-1000. You get it back when you check out.

    Booked 8 bed room dorm. On the one side the room is not divided by a brick wall but by the beds itself. That makes a 8 bed dormitory a 16 bed dormitory which of course comes with an exponential increase in noise volume...

    The biggest issue was how the staff control the A/C, the staff have no idea how to use an A/C! They will turn it on 16 then leave it for a while then randomly come in and turn it off for an hour and so on. At one point the A/C was on such a high temp around 28-30 I woke up at 4am with a few others also feeling the heat! Staff then came in at 5am to make it 16 and once again at 6am came in to turn it off for 2 hours. This is okay for a 1 night stop if you mind not having A/C on most of the time.
