    Nice stay near the airport”
    Pros: very convient location (15-20 minutes walking from the airport), restaurants and mall nearby. The hostel is family-run, staff is lovely and really helpful. Nice budget rooms, nothing fancy but everything you need is there. Would stay again in case of early departure/late arrival from the airport Cons: The neighborhood is not really inviting..

    15 minutes from the airport !on foot!”
    Only 15 minutes on foot from the airport. It's very good to stay when arriving around midnight (or too early morning, if not for enjoying at Casino is also good to stay!!). Staffs are so kind and helpful, the hostel is situated in the quiet place, A/C and washroom are inside of the room, Marina mall(we can go anywhere by jipney in Mactan) is at less than 10 minutes of walikn'. For me, like travelling in a cheaper way, It was nothing more that I needed!!

    Perfect airport hostel”
    I had the best time at Jiji’s! The staff was very welcoming and made sure everyone was happy. The dorm room was spacious and the bathroom clean. It was the perfect choice since I had to so some admin (wifi worked great) and had to go to the airport the day after. Breakfast was a minimalistic sandwich and coffee (6-10am) which was good regarding what you pay for. Would stay here again!

    Great hostel near Mactan Airport, Cebu”
    This place was awesome! Small house turned into a beautiful hostel with great staff, very clean and with 2 malls and many restaurants nearby. It is (a bit long) walking distance from the airport. They even offered a very nice sandwich for breakfast! I loved my stay here and I recommend this place for a stop before of after any flight from Cebu airport.

    If you are flying in very early or late night, this is the perfect spot to stop over. Grab car, 100peso, is available and easy to catch. Bigger bed option(50P additional) is recommended. Host is very nice. Good for a short stay.

    Jiji’s and her staff were amazing and very helpful with everything I needed from catching buses, things to do in the area and how to get around. They were very knowledgeable. The place was very clean and I felt right at home. Beds were comfortable as well. It’s very close to the airport and they let me pay a little extra to check in early since my flight landed at 4 am. I will definitely be coming back here

    My husband & stayed here for one night before flying out the next morning. Super close to the airport and a lot of Grab cars near by so no waiting. 5 minutes to the airport. Food places close by. Around 200 pesos from the south bus terminal to here. Only thing this place lacked was hot water. But this is not the first time I have encountered this in the Philippines

    I had a really nice and comfortable stay at jiji's. The hostel is very clean, close to some shopping options, grocery stores like 7/11 and 15 minutes walk to the airport. The breakfast was great too. It included coffee, a big sandwich, fruits and free water. It was very quiet and they even prevent towels, shampoo, shower gel and toothpaste for you. Amazing and very friendly staff too.

    I was very happy with this place. I expected a dorm room but got a private room with my own fan, nightstand, wall socket, and working wifi. Staff will book your tours for you and you can rent a scooter on site. You can also use the kitchen if you like. This place is easy to find, and coron is small so it’s also easy to get around. Would def stay here again.

    So glad I stayed here! The dorms are quiet and have a/c, the pillows are comfy, and there's even a 'dim light' so you don't disturb other guests if you're coming in late. They provide lockers (bring your own lock), soap & shampoo, a towel, and a cup. There is only one electrical socket in the dorm but there's more in the common areas. The dining area and lobby room are wonderful and have lots of table/desk space. Fantastic location. Just minutes away from the airport. Short walking distance to a mall and two supermarkets as well as several different restaurants. They allow use of their kitchen (utensils, plates, can-opener, microwave) and serve a great breakfast. I let staff know I was vegan upon arrival and they provided me with tons of fresh fruit, coffee and water in the morning. Jiji is super knowledgeable about the city and things to do, she can give you tons of suggestions and help you plan out your day. She even helped me figure out what Jeepneys I need to take to get around. Everyone was so incredibly friendly, kind and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again and I highly recommend it. I've been traveling for 3 months and this has been one of my favorite hostels I've stayed at!

    Stayed at Jijis to catch a morning flight coming in from outer island. Very close to airport 5 mins by taxi (80php). Lots of nearby are shops and restaurants. Staff were helpful making our stay comfortable. Room was comfortable as were the beds. Lighting is a little dim. Aircon cold. Wifi excellent. Breakfast of ham and cheese on toast with watermelon was nice. Distilled drinking water is available. Overall a very pleasant experience-would recommend.
