    Convenient location if you’re going on the ferry to other islands. Nice facilities and clean rooms. Also includes breakfast which was a plus! And a good wifi! Would recommend. :)

    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 :)

    Super clean with friendly and helpful staff. Not the best social vibe but probably because it’s close proximity to the ferry terminal (5 min walk) so people must be coming and going. Great for a night! Quiet and comfy. Close to many restaurants.

    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!

    Spent a few nights here, staff are very warm and friendly, perfect if you are staying in Cebu to then explore some of the islands close by.

    Hostel is nice. I like the smaller dorm size. The walls are open at the top, so you can hear a bit from next door and the reception area but it’s not bad. The rooms have no window but aircon. The location is perfect if you need to get a ferry. It’s a 10 min walk to the pier. Otherwise the area is not nice. I wouldn’t stay there just to chill but was good for one night.

    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

    Very Good

    I liked this place enough to come back again for a second time. It's quiet, close to the port, rooms have AC (not the common area though), and the beds are comfy. The wifi barely worked and often didn't at all, which was *very* frustrating for me. Bathrooms need to be cleaned more often. Neighborhood isn't the best.. Sad to see people sleeping on cardboard boxes outside, and a chained up puppy to a tree constantly barking you could hear from the common area (which I really wish had AC).

    Turned up at 3am as that is when my ferry arrived and despite "24h reception" the front door was locked so I couldn't even use the common area until my check in. Slept on a table in maccies instead. Other than that the place is nice, clean, good location, and best of all, hot showers. Rooms are nice with curtains so it's easy to sleep. This is a transit hostel and it does it's job as that just fine. I think I was just unlucky with the reception issue.
