      Great stay”

      This hostel is in a very strategic location if you want to stay in Cebu, near IT Park (walking Distance), Le Vie ( walking distance) there’s a nearby mall called JY Square. And accessible to most tourist areas in Cebu. Staffs are great! Very friendly, and they give you a list of places you could go to maximize your stay in Cebu. They are the same company with the transit hotel in Mactan so you can see the same staff there. If you want to roam around the city of cebu then I recommend this hostel. If you have a flight to catch, book their sister company “Mactan- Cebu Budget Hotel”.. will definitely stay in these hotel again when I’m back to Cebu

      Island (tropical) Breeze Hostel, Lahug Cebu”

      If you are traveling on a tight budget this place is the best. I stayed in this hostel for 2 weeks while taking a Korean Language Training in Nala Cebu. The place is clean, affordable, and safe. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They keep our room clean. It is located a few steps from St. Therese Church. It's a 5 to 8 minutes walk to JY Mall. This hostel is located on the 2nd floor of JY Palace Building along Edison St. Just tell the taxi driver it is near St. Therese Church in Lahug. It will cost you 120 to 140 pesos if you take a taxi going to SM City and 80-100 pesos going to Ayala. At night if you feel like having a sip of wine, you can visit La Vie Parisinne which is 15 to 20 minutes walk from this hostel or catch a (17B) jeepney at Shell Station for a minimum fare of 8 pesos and tell the driver to drop you off at La Vie. Try to book this place on Agoda where you can find good deals. This place is also known as Cebu Budgetel...

      Our 2 nights accomadation was all worth it. We are just backpackers and what’s good is that they really provide you all the things you need to know about Cebu most especially those jeepney rides. Jeepney rides in Cebu can be tricky. Also our room is very comfortable. Our stay with island breeze is great and I will recommend it to others who will go to Cebu. Your money ia definitely worth it. 🤗

Highly recommended. It is located on the 2nd floor of JY Palace Building in Lahug. It is a few steps away from St. Therese Church. 5 minutes walk to JY mall. 10 to 15 minutes (by taxi) to Ayala mall.

      I highly recommend staying here especially if you're a solo traveler! Already my third time!”

      Nilo and the rest of the staff are very friendly and polite. They attend to every guest's needs. This is the third time I've stayed in their place and as always, I enjoy my time here. I can see how they value hospitality and respect despite having difficult guests >_< . I admire how they keep the place, as I stayed in a mixed dorm for 12 people, clean as well as the bathroom which is the most important. Even if it's just a bunk you have your own privacy and outlets for charging your gadgets. The location is convenient as it's near the highway and near JY Square. I really recommend people to try and stay here, it's not a 5-star hostel but it's good value for money! Thank you Nilo and everyone working at Island Breeze Hostel for making my 3 day stay secure and comfortable. I'll be sure to book your place again!

They would surely set aside what ever they're doing just to assist my needs 💓 and NILO is the best and funniest and ever happy to assist receptionist I've ever met my whole life.

      The hostel is pretty nice for the price you pay. Great place to spend a night or two. There’s a supermarket, mall, street food vendors, IT park and some clubs near by. The hostel staff is very friendly and kind. Every person from the staff greets with a big smile. They are very helpful in arranging tours, taxis and even shared vans. They will give you all the information you need to travel in Cebu. I would recommend to stay here especially if you have a morning flight.

      A good place just to stay a night”

      Here are the things I noticed when I stayed: (From 6pm to 1:30am) • Taxi drivers are not familiar with the name Island Breeze Hostel. JY Crowne Building or St. Therese church is the landmark. • You have to climb to the 2nd floor or 3rd floor to get to your room. Elevator is not working so if you have older companions, they might have a hard time. • T&B is small and not that clean. Floor paint is peeling off. • Staff are very accommodating and helpful. • AC is cold working perfectly. • Family room's beds are enough for a big family of 7. • Convenience store (Shell Select) and sari-sari stores are located nearby. All in all, it was a good stay especially if you are just spending a night to get to your next trip.

Its also near Cebu IT Park, La vie Parisienne and Ayala Center.

      real value ”

      I was positively surprised at what we got for the price. Although people 's grievances as mentioned in other reviews are real (grotty bathroom, weak WiFi in bedrooms), I found it perfectly adequate. WiFi can be remedied by going to reception hangout area, and the bathroom wasn't all bad despite moisture traces on the ceiling and weathered floortiles. Room had a new lick of paint, and the pillows were more comfortable than most I've come across during my many travels. Great staff. And, a kettle in the room... with, well, just one mug. But we probably would have got another one had we asked.

      Pro: 1. Spacious, cheap, clean room. 2. Friendly staff. 3. Don't feel hot at night, can sleep without aircon. (personal feel) 4. 10~15 min walk to Cebu IT Park. Con: 1. Poor sound insulation, can hear the sound outside the hostel (there is construction nearby) and corridor. 2. Water heater not working, but luckily the water not cold. (I'm fine without it) 3. Air con is noisy.

      A new place. Ask JY Crown Hotel to find out, the same buildings. Aircon works very well, no kitchen, but there is a kettle and cups. It's nice to have a curtain in the bunks. I came for two days with doubt because the price were very cheap and I extended it for three days more after I saw the place.

      The Hostel is quite accessible by taxi , jeepney or Habal-habal if you are from the North Bus terminal. I have booked through online and i paid 261pesos, upon arrival, for a night stay which is great for my budget. This is a dorm rate , and can accommodate 12-14 persons in a room. Hot shower is available the bathroom is not that super clean but is ok. Just for the tip always check and book online to avail the best deal esp if you're on a budget otherwise the rate can be double, I chose to be practical on my journey and spend some for the food to have a happy tummy :).

      Our Stay”

      I think the picture is much nicer than how it actually is. I booked it because it's cheap and clean; the bedroom itself is clean. However, the shower door is broken. There's five of us in a quadruple room so we paid additional for an extra person. But there's no extra space for an additional portable bed so we opt for blankets instead. (even though there's 5 of us, 3 small people can fit in their queen size bed) . Some staff are helpful, the other is not even familiar with the place. The building is not in the main street you have to walk or ride a 3cycle to commute (but locals just walk). It is not in a posh neighborhood, so there might be something you will not be used to. Since I'm with my friends, there will be things that I'll overlook so that we'll have a good time. And we did have a good time in Cebu. This place is clean and cheap.
