    Chill place to stay and very homey”
    My friends and I arrived here around 7pm and we were greeted by 3 of the staff members. They were a bit intimidating at first but approachable as time passed by. This place is inside a subdivision which alone tells you that it is very secure. The downside is that it's not really that accessible since it's quite far from the highway. You also need to walk from the highway to here which is not ideal if you go out at night.

    Safe and secure place within city limits”
    This hostel is located inside a village within city limits. It is safe and secure. Fifteen minutes walk to Ayala and the French Bakery and Wine. As a foreigner, we did not have a hard time to find the hostel. There were signs beside the road. Mobile app called Waze also helped. We stayed in their room for 2 persons. We had a pleasant experience. The bedsheet and towels were clean. The bathroom was clean and the water was strong. There was a lock in the bathroom door which was enough to secure us. We did not have a problem using the bathroom. At night, we had a good rest. I love this place. Will come back again soon.

    nightmare”
    We paid for a private room but the bathroom is connected to to the other room which is good for 8 people. So yeah, we had to share bathroom with those 8 people staying in the other room. The water pump went down too during the second day of our stay and we were given rain water to flush the toilet. The location is also at the end of the subdivision which I found very inconvenient.

    Initially booked our stay for Monday but due to change of plans we had to stay in Cebu city on Saturday instead. Contacted the hotel and got to speak with the owner. She was nice enough to move my booking to Saturday with no extra charge. Awesome customer service! The place is in a quiet neighborhood and is only a few minutes walk away from establishments. Very much worth the money.

    Room for 4”
    Friendly staff
    We are a group of 8 people. Some occupied the room for 2, others in the dorm-type, while 4 of us in the room for 4. All, except for the air conditioning in the room for is good. The "room for 4" is too small for 4 occupants. Air conditioning is okay in the lower deck, but it's very hot (like you're in a hot kitchen) in the upper deck. We already informed the owner during the 2nd day of our stay and promised s/he would check on this. In the meantime, the staff just let us use a stand fan. Air conditioning in the dorm-type room is far better, just that you won't have your privacy if there are other guests. Up to you.

    Homey accommodation”
    Staff, value for money, quiet location
    I was alone in this place when I stayed there and it worked for me because I was keen on finishing my term paper. I met Rachelle and Shana (or was it Shaya?) and had a great dinner with them. We also exchanged stories which, to me, was fascinating and entertaining. I stayed in a female dorm and it was comfortable. The sheets were clean and homey. I just wish this house converted into a hostel would provide towels. Also, I like the homey feel of the place although it is far out from the main street. But if you are looking for a home away from home, I think this is a great place to stay in. Inform the receptionists ahead of time if you need a cab. You can also order fastfod granted that it has to be before 9pm. All in all, my stay was pleasant.

    Too far from main street”
    Price, Staff, Philippine style house
    The location is too far from main street. And there's nothing around the hostel. You have to walk about 10 to 15 minutes in hot weather to take a taxi. I took a taxi from Ayala mall and the driver didn't know this place. I needed to use my cellphone(google map) to locate this place. I would spend 10$ more and choose to stay at the better location. Other than that, This place is good for the price.
