Not very good
Chris H. Solo travelers Australia, December 31, 2014

The bus stop
Mercifully short , I stayed overnight on my way to Puerto galera because the bus departed from here at 830 am . I can see no other reason to stay there it was particularly overpriced considering its age and condition

Roosters outside rooms are crowing all night!

food, swaggy bus and staff
Had to change rooms two times due to 1) crowing roosters outside 1st room which existed all night - thought roosters only crowed at daylight??? 2) AC didn't work in 2nd room...conditions were unlivable especially due to not getting sleep from the 1st night. Swaggy has a good bus program to A/C and the staff are seasoned professionals. If they could get rid of the rooster and spend a few thousand on the place, I'd return
Terence M. Solo travelers Australia, November 21, 2014

Airport pick up,able to have a beer outside, price
Only issue is that they had previously booked me 4 or 5 times to Batangas on thei van to connect to Puerto Galera.This time I had to make my way by taxi to City State Hotel to catch a bus to Batangas. Next time I will stay at City State Hotel.
Peter C. Solo travelers United Kingdom, October 19, 2014
Poor disappointing

Free Transfer, Staff, hot water
Very disappointing hotel. Accommodation is drab with very dim lighting, feels more like a detention centre than a hotel. Very expensive for what is a back-packers’ hostel. Corridor to elevator is very shabby and smells like a toilet. It does have hot water and staff are pleasant. Free airport transfer and also bus service to Angeles City. But these are available to non-residents..300peso for transfer and 600peso for 3 times daily Angeles service.
