“Budget stay yet worth it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

If you are on a budget, then this is the place to stay. Situated at the heart of the city and very much near to one of the tourist's spot - the People's Park. They serve FREE and tasty breakfast. If you wish to dine outside the dormitory, you can choose from various restaurants just around the corner.The staff and crew are very friendly and accommodating. The front desks ladies will greet you always with a smile. A definite must in every establishment. The room that we stayed in was good. Air conditioning was excellent. They have hot and cold shower and the lighting was perfect for me. The ambiance was great. Oh and this establishment, is a NON-SMOKING one. two thumbs up for that! :)

Room Tip: Choose the rooms located in the new building. :)

They are very prompt in delivering their service. They are very corteous and warm. I walked in and they gladly helped me in choosing the right room. Everything is good. they clean towels and bed sheets. the airconditioning is superb and they have hot and cold showers. Their breakfast is tasty and filling it comes with Coffee, Tea or Milo. Location is great because it is in the middle of downtown and it is very accesible!

A good place to stay. The prices are very reasonable and includes breakfast. The staff are very friendly. The food available at the restaurant is very tasty although the choice is a bit limited.

The rooms have limited servicing (they were not cleaned during our stay), but that was fine with us.

This hotel was chosen for us as part of your Mount Apo trekking trip and one night was included in the trip. We decided to stay at same hotel for the rest of our stay in Davao.

Located right at the heart of the city, D'Counter Pensione will prove you wrong that you need pay much for comfort! D'Counter is right across Davao City's People's Park so if it's your first time to visit Davao and hasn't been to the park yet, this is the place to stay. Should you wish to eat outside of D'Counter's restaurant, there are several restaurants near it (read: walking distance)
The rooms are clean but not sophisticated but that is understandable considering the rate. But I'm talking about the average rate which we took. There are rooms though which will suit your budget. The room accommodation comes with a complimentary breakfast (and mind you, the food is great!) so it's another star you can give to D'Counter.
Take my word, you'd really get your money's worth!

I have considered this Dormitory in Davao City, because it's cheaper & you have a free breakfast.
And they are included in a Davao Tour Packages that I have seen in the net.I called & was given a list of the rooms by email from Ms. Cynthia Liston. Since I was with my parents & my sister who's pregnant, I have reserved for the rooms which we don't have to use the stairs. Reserve room in advance but more than 3 nights they ask for a 50% down payment. When you leave the next day, you could ask them to clean your room and yahoo! ...new towels & tissue. You could also ask for Hot or Cold Water to drink. They have a nice grotto with a fish pond just outside our room which is a great view for picture taking.

For 6 nights, the place feels like home, it's near People's Park, Toryano's (one of the best resto in Davao) and a good walk from PASALUBONG Center & about 2 blocks walk to ALDEVINCO (great buys for souvenir).
The reception staff our nice but i prefer they smile more. The Kitchen staff are nice & fast in serving the food though.

I love this place! Give them a call if you wanted to stay here: (082) 226-2045

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

Situated right smack in downtown Davao City (not in the seedy side). It is near Davao Peoples Park and a host of restos. Reservation was a bit of a hassle, when I called for a room reservation , the attendant kept asking (or bugging) me if I was sure of my reservation. Of course I was sure.
I booked for a Single Elite Superior Room for 840 pesos. For a budget hotel, the room was not bad but they could have done better. The bed has a thin foam so don't expect comfortable sleep. Bathroom hot/cold shower was not working well, so I settled using the timba (pail).
Breakfast was free and they served the usual Filipino "Silog" meal which was tasty and filling. Complimentary newspaper (Bulletin Today) is also provided for their guests.. now that's a pleasant surprise.
Despite it's flaws which is tolerable for me, I think I would still come back here the next time I'm in Davao. Budget friendly, average service, convenient and safe location. This are all fine for a budget conscious traveller like me.

Room Tip: Choose a room situated in the new wing. Better and newer rooms there.
