    Untidy. Staff are not polite. ”

    only the front desk staff annibel is nice. The rest of the staff are not polite. Example, this guy who escorts us to our room doesnt even offer my in-law to carry her bag going to the room. I know the place is more cheaper than the other hostels or hotels around but still they have to provide a nice room or at least a nice service for their guests. Especially the comfort room in our rooms. You can see some stains in the toilet, you can feel the slimy thing in their pale.

    Perfect Location, Good Value for Money, Helpful Staff”

    -Has a good view of the Mayon volcano from their roof deck -Good value for money for a backpacker + Free Breakfast -Somewhat understaff but they try their best to make ends meet -Cleans regularly the place and really looks presentable from out to in Downside: Brownout with no generator (hence, room is really hot with no available flashlight or candles) Brownout happened at noon-time, which is a good thing since there are no windows in the room.

    The location is good. You can simply ride jeepney if you want to go anywhere. Very convenient. Cons: Shared Bathroom. but since we're the only one who's occupying the 3rd floor it was all ours. No elevator but still a good exercise

    I had a great time there. Meeting good people. The breakfast is not that good but for this price, nothing to complain. The localisation is great. Peaceful place. The staff is great. An advice: go to the Hendriquitos bar, close to the hostel. Great people.

    I would definitely recommend this place. Staffs are very very accommodating; going an extra mile for the comfort of their guests. Very much accessible ang location. If ever I'll go back in Legazpi City, I'll choose the same hostel for accommodation. More power, Mayon Backpackers!

    Location not so bad”

    We were a group of 12, Rooms were rather comfortable for the value, Location was also near to just about anywhere needed to visit, We worked our way around easily and most tricycles know the place, Marvellous view of the Volcano on the top deck. Breakfast was simple... But for the price , its fine. A few Mossies buzzing about outside after dark, So bring the aerogaurd!!. Internet signal a little slow. There is a Kitchen area, I think some policing needs to be done, A lot of Guests were rather lazy to wash their cups and bowls, I also had a thief helping himself to one of me beers , So clearly mark any food or drinks you leave in fridge.. I had a problem with payment!! On the Ogoda booking site it clearly says.. Hotel accepts cash only.. Credit card is used for booking and will only be charged if a no show??? I payed the rooms 3 of them. When I returned home "Sydney" I noticed my credit card had also been charged for the rooms booked.. It took 2 weeks to get a refund.. Be careful, Kurt

    Bad staff attitude and dirty room”

    The room given to us was dirty with lots of ants that bit my daughter on her arm. I asked them to transfer us to a cleaner room but a staff told me to just refund my payment. What a great way to handle a situation. Its our 4th time to stay in Mayon Backpackers but they left a negative impression on me on our last stay.

    This is a value for money if you are a group of friends traveling together. It is situated in a good location, you can find many places to eat around the area. Don't expect much with the facilities since this is a budget hostel. Good thing they have free water dispenser. Parking is a bit cramped during peak season.

    Really nice place in Legazpi!”

    We started here on two separate occasions, before and after we went to Donsol (which is amazing! If you go - do the manta bowl snorkeling with the company Whale Shark Adventures!). One time we had a private room with A/C and the other time a dorm with fan. The private was great, and the dorm was good too.. it didn't get too hot even with a fan. The staff is great and location is pretty good.. Around some local restaurants and bakeries and walkable to the main part of town. Breakfast is good and changes every day (meat, eggs, and rice). Make sure to go to the rooftop for an amazing view of Mayon volcano!

    Very nice place”

    This is a great place to spend a night before getting a van to Donsol. Quite central but not noisy and close to the Jeepneys going every which way. There were rolling blackouts when i was there which was frustrating but not their fault. Though i did spot a generator on the roof which wasn't being turned on. The rooms seemed hot and stuffy (no windows in the dorm) after walking around in the heat but I slept perfectly. Staff are super nice and breakfast is decent making it awesome value just bring your own coffee mix from one of the many convenience stores in the area.

    Nice Affordable option for Backpackers”

    Without doubt, one of the best hostel I've ever stayed in. From the super friendly owner and staffs to the great amenities. Imagine, you can use the kitchen and computers for free! The hostel has this homey feel so my stay was very enjoyable. I stayed in a 4 mixed bedroom with shared bathroom and got to meet new friends both who are staying in my room. Thanks to Nanay (owner's mother) and everyone else who ensured that I had such a great time in Legazpi. I'd definitely stay here again when I go back.

    Nice, friendly, little spot tucked away in a neighborhood. Helpful staff, spotlessly clean, some decent food options nearby, easy to catch a tricycle or jeepney to different attractions. Great view of the volcano from the rooftop. Basic breakfast provided. Good to meet other travelers as there aren't a whole lot in Legaspi. Just a heads up though, as the fan rooms don't have any windows for ventilation, prepare to sweat at night.

    Value for money hostel”

    Hostel is located inside a subdivision so it is quite difficult to find but the main road and city center is just a 3-minute walk where transportation to bus terminal, airport and the boulevard is easily accessible.It's pretty cheap and if you just want a place to stay for the night then this is it. It comes a with a measly breakfast, just rice, egg and fried eggplant and coffee but for the price, you cannot complain. Staff are okay though not so cheerful.

    Most staff very friendly! I liked the environmental tips. Not having Wifi everywhere is a good idea - because then it is easier to meet people in the common areas, for example where you get Wifi. I met great people like this. :)

    I was very happy that I booked my stay here in this hostel. The staff are friendly. The hostel has this homey feel so my stay was very enjoyable. I stayed in a 6 mixed bedroom with shared bathroom. I'm used to staying in these kinds of rooms since I usually travel solo.
