basic. loud. friendly. cheap. central.
Not your usual backpacker place. Here you can mingle with locals, NGO workers, lost souls, and scientific vagabounds.

Worst Hotel Ever!
With approachable security guards
Lack of staff. No mirror inside rooms. Poor lights and ventilation. Value of money (Thumbs Down!)

Happy to be alive
Atmosphere, Security, Space
Big lockers, big beds. Decently located. Paradise for the experienced traveller. Soft initiation for the newbie. Staff can speak english and were very friendly and supportive, especially after I was kidnapped and robbed in the city.

i made an accidental double booking
and you took my USD 15 fee instead of warning me when i made the 2nd booking on the same dates for the same city with the same name.

Big Beds
Location; Bed; Room
It was good! Their bunk beds were really big and sturdy that I had no worry sleeping on the upper deck despite weighig 73 Kgs. The location was very near (walking distance) to SM, Araneta Coliseum, etc. The room is very spacious, quiet and relaxing. The only negative comment we can say is that every person needs to give a security deposit of P1,000! Huwhaat!!? We were four so that's P4,000! And we were on a tight budget since we are starting businessmen. Geez! That was just so irritating.

cheap and basic accommodation
price, location, cleaniness
Always nice to come back here. Those with a light sleep beware: This place is LOUD. Those males coming to this country to "rent" a girlfriend: Please stay away.
