          Just right and quite applicable for a short (1n) stay. ”

          Previous reviews seem exaggerated. Or perhaps this hotel adapted to change for the better. Linens are clean, fan room is fine. Space too small, just worth the money, I guess. You have to ask for the water schedule, as they conserve water by turning off supply at certain times. Thank you, Friendly's! ^^,

          Guys weren’t ready for my arrival even though I arrived late night. Hostels surrounding is full of rubbish. Upgraded my room though for a private and room was clean. No toilet paper or towel provided. Also no information on arrival. Not sure whether WiFi available there. Bathroom was not very clean. Had an issue in the morning and staff wasn’t really helpful. Other guest was trying to help me. Good for one night stop over in Cebu. Property just few minutes by taxi from the port.

          Bad experience!!”

          We had booked for a double bad room and when we arrived they gave us a bunk bed room. Try to upgrade but they don't have room available and they sayd that all the rooms with fan have bunk bed, but the photos of rooms are a double bed! However, we stay in a very little room, it was only space to pass, near 60cm between the bed and wall! We stay the night and the day after we had a bad rush on the skin of neck and arms! Thank you "friendly's", I don't think we can see you again!

          The front desk peeps were very friendly and smiles all the time. They were very accommodating. The rooms are clean enough, interior is just okay, you just get what you paid for. We checked in here since this is near the north bus terminal and we only needed a place to take a shower and nap. However, the only thing I hate is the towel they lent me stinks a lot!! Like it was never washed and dried properly. My bf’s towel smells nice though. I think they should be more attentive to those stuff. oh and their water supply in their CR seems limited. But enough for you to shower. Overall, the place is safe, i really like the service. They just need to improve that towel thing. After an exhausting trip, all you would want is to get a good shower and they failed at that part. 👌🏻 Keep improving! 🤗

          Overbooked”

          Arrived there around 10 pm from a 5 hours travel only to find out that the room we booked was occupied. I originally booked for a family room for 4 pax with a double deck bed. Upper deck is a single bed and the lower deck is a queen size bed. Since the room we booked was unavailable, they offered us a different room with just ONE queen size bed and capacity of 2 pax (based on agoda description). The staff insisted that my friends and I can fit into one queen size bed (Mind you, all of us are above 150 lbs). I demanded that they give us a room comfortable for 3 people to rest. They decided to transfer us to a nearby hotel. Its almost midnight and our group is composed of 3 females, yet the staff refused to accompany us walking towards the replacement hotel which is around 30 meters away. You also need to cross a highway to get to the side of the replacement hotel. After I insisted, the staff finally agreed to accompany us.

They are at the back of the building, just above a disgusting river that smells awfully, and the air-conditioning doesn't help.

          I was not bother, but it is a wild place to be. The dorm has a big window facing the main road. No glass, so you literally hear each single car passing by. Also my dorm mate wanted to have the door always open because it was very warm in the dorm. We could have used the fan, but he did not seem happy about it. So door open 24/7 and no glass in the window. Although these facts I felt save in the hostel as is security at the entrance of the building and always staff at the reception. Toilet could be cleaner. Very well located, I actually booked for two nights

          Worst accommodation in south east Asia. ”

          We arrived to the ‘hotel’ at night time and was greeted with an expressionless man who instead of saying hello, just said ‘passports’. The room was the smallest room I’ve ever stayed in, with a rickety bunk bed which had a chip in the wood so there was enough room to close the doors. The whole place stank of sewage and was very very unclean. Shower rooms were horrible and old and the door had not handle so couldn’t even shut properly. Staff were so, so rude. DO NOT STAY HERE!
