The owners were welcoming and warm and Kuya Jerson was very helpful and knowledgeable on where and how to go to places in Legazpi. I will definitely stay here again when I go back.

    Ilawod Guesthouse Makes Guests Feel Special”
    This guesthouse is run by a pair of gentlemen named Gerson & Joe who made my partner and I feel extremely valued. The guesthouse serves a top-rate Filipino oriented breakfast each morning, along with unlimited access to coffee, tea and malt drink. Nearby are fleets of trikes available to take guests to several malls, in-town tourist sites and the Legazpi Embarcadero. There is also access to jeepney service to other areas. Its quiet location in a residential neighbourhood by Albay Central School gives this guesthouse a leg-up on the competition despite current construction and periodic brown-outs. We loved hearing the singing voices of the schoolchildren next door.

    Excellent Hostel!!!”
    Location, Cleanliness, Friendly staff
    We arrived before noon and was greeted with smile by the staff (forgot his name). He pleasantly asked us if we want double or twin bed, we opted for double. He then showed us our room and informed us with some house rules and also the direction going to the highway. I didn't expect much about breakfast but he served us with yummy pork tapa with egg. We were so full. He also let us borrow one of the umbrellas as it is about to rain. Overall, this is perhaps the best hostel I've ever been to, not to mention that the rates are very cheap. I think the best thing about this hostel is the location. There is a robinson's supermarket about 3min walk from the gate. Two thumbs up for Balai Tinay Hostel. Highly recommended!! :)

    Quiet neighborhood, close to main road (Rizal), and friendliest staff Ever!
    Thanks to Joe, the Balai Owner, my stay was most memorable for the gracious hospitality afforded me while staying at Balai Tinay. Joe went above and beyond the typical balai owner by making 'his home my home'. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphereat the Balai and will personally only stay there whenever I travel to Legazpi City again. I only hope it's soon!

    The best place and value for money”
    Friendly and accommodating owner/staff, quiet and serene environment, and cozy and homey place to stay
    Our stay in this place was great and we couldn't ask for more given its price. Our overall experience is indeed more than we expected. Ate Gigi was so kind and accommodating and we felt like we just stayed with our relatives who opened their homes just for us. What seemed to be some glitch with airport transfer (we expected to have one as advertised in agoda and tripadvisor. We wanted this as first timers in the place for some assurance and safety) was just a little to the comforts and warmth of acceptance and assistance accommodated to us. The place is just few minutes from the airport and accessible by taxi or trike for just around 10 minute drive. Given the second chances we shall still go this place!

    The place is indeed a home away from home. ”
    We are a group of 5 and the room that we had was very spacious and the aircon was a big one that we usually turn it off at dawn or we will freeze :) There are complimentary water, coffee, milo, bread, and biscuits at the lobby where guests can mingle every morning or whenever you come in after a long day of excursion. Kuya in the reception is very accommodating and will happily suggest on must-see places in legazpi as well as helped us haggle on the atv rides with Your Brother. We also got to meet the owner of the house whom we are very happy to chat with in Bisaya! If ever il be in legazpi again, i will surely come back to this place

    Nice cozy place but can be improved”
    PROs: the place is very interesting, it is cozy. It is jot your usual hotel, it feels like going to a familiar place. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. The common area is big and chill CONs: there is no trash can in the common area, you will need to throw your trash in rhw bin found in your restroom. The blanket is too thin. No hairdryer. Breakfast: would be nice if they provide homecooked meals for the guests; it will complete the homie-feel of the place.

    It was a good choice. The place though was quite hard to find but no worries since trikes know the place. There was a short cut in going outside the main street so it was then accessible. The buffet breakfast was more than enough.
