Hotel is near the main road enough to have a good sleep and be near the highway. Near BPI, near convenience stores and has a First Colonial Restaurant nearby. Now, that's strategic. Facilities are clean and well maintained. Wifi is super fast which is fantastic!

the hostel was able to provide us with services we need most, from room amenities to transportation to and from our event venue. The staff were so accommodating that even when we stayed late preparing for the defense presentation, they're available to provide us assistance without interfering with our work. The mess hall and the kitchen became our prep hall....

For a first timer in Albay, I had an amazing experience to the awesome place. The hostel adds spice to our stay because of its very cozy and nice ambiance. The crews are also very accommodating. Hoping for the next trip! We'll be surely staying on your hostel.

The location is freally far, maybe 15 min. from the airport. Just be sure to remember the landmarks before going there. Kind of unknown to locals but no worries as long as you know the landmarks like the streets. I just wish they have more signs especially at night. The room is good. But look for a room with more...

Nice place. Low cost. Attentive staffs. A little bit far from town but perfect place for DIY travellers. Recommended for those who seek thrill in Bicol. We'll be back for sure. Thanks Mayon Backpackers!

If you find yourself visiting Albay and you're on a budget then this is the place to be. It's cheap and the rooms are clean. They have free wifi and they also have an excellent staff that's very accommodating.

Me and my friends really enjoyed staying at Mayon Backpackers Hostel. The staff were very friendly and gave us travel guides and tips. Our trip was very spontaneous and we didn't have any plans so the staff were a big help. We enjoyed our Legazpi trip more because of the hostel. :)

“Please fix the wifi issue with your 2nd building. It's a bit inconvenient and honestly unfair to rent the larger rooms and then end up not having any wifi because only the dorm building has access to it. Also, hot showers would be nice. I believe people would be willing to pay more just for that.”
