“Stayed here twice. Do so again.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Very clean, well run and simple hostel. Run more like a hotel really, lots of branding. You could be anywhere in the world. Location average, I ended up relying on taxis to get downtown. I would (am) staying here again as the staff are very friendly and helpful, air con is on all day and it's clean and well kept. Ideal for 1-2 nights pit stop in Cebu. Would recommend it to others.

Reviewed 13 April 2014

we booked two nights in this hostel and upon our arrival we figured out that we have booked one night too early so actually we arrived one day too late. as the room was still free after our original booking, the friendly staff let us stay in the room for the second night without making us pay for another night. the double room was nice and clean, free wifi a bit slow and cable tv and hot shower working well.

Room Tip: the dorms seemed a bit small from the outside

The good:
Very clean well kept guest house. Very nice staff and a great little cafe on the roof. The guest house is easy to find on google by typing the name and they have a very large sign outside.
Bathrooms were clean and offer a place to hang your belongings.

Close to the Robinson's mall. About a 10-15 minute walk from the hostel.

The bad:
One of the three showers are broken and leak massively. It makes showering difficult. The other 2 showers work fine and have hot water.

The beds in the 'blue' dorm as it's called are very short. Built for children. If your under 5'6" you should be fine but as I'm 6'2" it was terrible my girlfriend who is 5'7" was also too tall.

Room Tip: I am unaware of a pool or fitness room.

I'm surprised this hostel has such good rating. The staff was helpful, but that's it really... I booked a 6-bed female dorm and they put me in a 8-bed mixed, because they "just decided" to make all dorms mixed. Dorm was ridiculously cramped, no space to move properly or store luggage. Beds were too short, lockers under the bottom bunk were inconvenient and dirty, toilets also cramped and not too clean... in fact the whole place is small and cramped and poor value for money, I stayed in better hostels and private rooms in Philippines for cheaper than this.

Nice guesthouse and staff. Good value.The facilities feels very modern and well maintained.
Nice dorms with towel, soap and schampoo (only guesthouse I've been in Souhteast Asia that provided all that), nice roof top, well working wifi, self-laundry-service, clean bathrooms.
Don't have much to complain about. Exept freezing AC or no AC at all in one of the dorms, think something wasn't working as it should there.

Positives:
Rooms were clean, provided towels, staff are helpful (as long as its not late at night), convenient location, security guard was nice.

Negatives:
Beds are way to small! Im not a tall girl (less than 5'7) and I had to hang my feet out the end, dorm room fits 6people in what should be MAX four, bathrooms are cramped are poorly designed, food at cafe up top almost un-edible.

It's a budget hostel, and you really feel it.

Room Tip: Don't choose the dorm bunk beds if you are of average hight. You will not fit.

Reviewed 12 November 2013

Had a lovely time here. The place has air conditioning and hot water (really nice when you've been on islands with neither for a while). Its very clean and in the dorms you get a towel, a bar of soap, and shampoo. The place is really cool and and can be really sociable too. Its really close to the southern bus terminal (for trips to the whale sharks in oslob, and diving in moalboal).
I got there the day before typhoon haiyan hit the philippines, and the entire neighbourhood had a black out. The staff were amazing throughout, and did everything they could to make sure we were ok. The staff are very knowledgeable. They know their information and always willing to help. Especially Roxlin - she was really lovely and answered every question I had and was really helpful. I'd definitely stay there again if I'm in Cebu again.

My only complaint is that they add over 10% on top of the dorm room rate if booked through hostelbookers than if you book direct (all hostels i've booked previously offered exactly the same price if booked through hostelbookers or direct) so its not about the fees or anything - they've just increased the rate when they probably shouldn't have!
