    Very comfortable stay: room was clean, aircon was quiet, bunk-bed was wide-enough, sheets did not stink of fabric-softener, toilet and bathrooms were clean and staff were friendly and helpful, very accessible. My one suggestion would be that the music be made softer, so that people in the common living room/dining area could talk and eat in a quieter atmosphere. A very decent, price-worthy place; have already shared my experience with friends, and recommended Happy Nest Hostel to them.

    Facilities: 2 toilet and 3 shower rooms for the males so I'm guessing same for girls. You can also get here by taking mybus from airport to SM city and then taking jeepney 12i to Santo Niño then a quick walk. A very cute hostel in downtown Cebu! Also served a free simple breakfast. Very clean. Highly recommend :)

    Great location if you are getting a ferry trip and want to see the cathedral and basilica in cebu!! Not many restaurants so close by but an easy ride away and they offer a breakfast at the hostel. The staff were very helpful and you can store luggage overnight for 50pesos if travelling to Bohol. Would recommend!

    The place itself is good and close to the port. The dorm room is also not bad. The AC is good and cold. The staff was helpful. The toilet is a bit smelly and not the best. But it's still relatively acceptable.

    The staff was absolutely incredible! They went above and beyond in helping us plan our day in Cebu, which sites to look at, and helped arranged motorcycles and drivers to take us to the tops of Cebu. The hostel is quiet, so if you want a good night sleep it’s perfect for that, if you want to party maybe somewhere else? My only complaint is the cleanliness in the showers could have been better but they were not bad.

    Location is definitely not “nice” - quite a lot of homeless people around/stray dogs everywhere etc. I wouldn’t want to walk around at night as a lone female. BUT it’s a great location for the pier, only 5 min walk away, so would deffo recommend for a quick stopover before the ferry. Also there’s a security guard all night which is nice. Rooms are clean and comfortable with good air con. Free breakfast is DELICIOUS, amazing pancakes

    Location was a bit far from the city, and the airport for me. But very near to the famous sto. nino church. Value for money was very good.

    Stayed here after arriving on a late flight, and before taking a bus to Moalboal the next morning. It's close to the South Bus Terminal, which is great. The beds were fine, but the dorms are very close to the communal area, and the walls are thin. I could hear people singing karaoke loudly right outside the door until super late, which made it hard to sleep. The bathroom also leaked under the wall and soaked my running shoes under the bed. Staff were nice though. It's good for a quick stopover.
