    The hostel was great. Very close to many good food outlets and grocery stores. It isn't in the most affluent area, but it'll do. The walls are paper thin so of other people are talking in the other room you can hear them clear as day. Had beer available for purchase ! Security at the door over night for extra protection and lockers in public view.

    Great hostel if just stopping over in cebu (which we were) staff were friendly and helpful. Clean, dorm rooms get a bit cold as the AC is turned down super low but then randomly switched off throughout the night so gets really hot? Not sure why they don't just leave it some where in the middle. Reception were happy to give extra blankets if needed though

    Awesome hostel for a stop over in Cebu. Walking distance to the port and a short grab from the airport. We returned twice for stop overs and it was a great place to recoup and have a proper shower in between the party islands. Great WiFi, comfy beds, amazing AC and privacy curtains. Walking distance to a Jollibee and McDonald’s ;) nice communal area and kitchen. Would recommend and definitely come back.

    This is a great modern hostel with excellent staff. They were very helpful with directions and things to do in the area. A little hard to find the hostel but overall it is a good place to stay if you only have a few days in Cebu.

    I was just there for a night between stops, but it was clean, there was a common area for hanging out, staff 24 hours, and a security guard at the door. Each bed has a plug, a light, and a privacy curtain. Location seems a bit odd, but it’s walking distance to major landmarks and a quick jeepny or Grab car from the bus stations. Staff let me check out at 4am to grab a bus to Maya to head to Malapascua.

    We only stayed here for one night, we arrived at 1am (thankfully someone was on reception to check us in) and left at 7am. We chose this hostel because it was within walking distance for the ferry to Bohol. All seemed positive during our short time at the hostel. The only downside I remember is the number of homeless people outside sleeping. They were very friendly in the morning but it was intimidating arriving so late at night. There was a security guard at the hostel at night

    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

    This hostel is lovely after spending time on islands. Comfy beds, great WiFi and great ac. We stayed here twice after ferries and before flights. Close enough to the airport, but there’s not a lot going on around the hostel but it’s great for an admin night and to regroup and organise!!!

    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.
