      Wonderful Experience ”

      For the past 2 weeks I stayed here I must say that everything was excellent..The location of the hotel is quite close to my destination as well as some other business centers in the city . As for the room, its surprisingly comfortable and had the chance to stay with the room having balcony on it making my stay more relax since Im seeing the view outside while having a cup of coffee . And lastly but not definitely the least, all the staff are really so accommodating. For all the hotels ive been on, they are the best team so far. They treat you not as a guest but rather more of like a family. 🙃I would definitely recommend this hotel to others specially if you’re looking for a place which is accessible to everything and for this looking for place to hang out this place is really suited for you as night life is amazing on this spot..

      its a very good place, the people who stay there and the staff are all very friendly. especially one of the female staff on my 1st day arrival during afternoon, she gave me very clear direction on how to go to MOA. The young guy worked during the night also gave me clear instruction of going to batangas. The area around it are full of pubs and entertainment places which is fun to watch. Thank goodness its not a quite street because going solo trip to a country i am not familiar with quite streets is the last thing i want. over its an awesome place to stay just for resting and chilling. i will definitely going back that place for my next trip.

      Walls are too thin. If you're sleeping early the people hanging out in the hallways are still loud enough to disturb you. Everything else is okay but that is a deal breaker for me. You can't have peace and quiet.

      Clean budget hostel ”

      I was there just for a couple hours because of odd flight hours. I find the staff helpful and the facilities quite clean.

      The lady at the reception was nice and really helpful. The room was clean but smelled of paint and cigarette, had to open the balcony door for a while to fade the odor. Good stay for those on tight budget.
