      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!

      Will recommend!”

      The hostel may be a little ways off the road, being located in a corner of a subdivision, but transportation to and from the highway is not difficult to get by. The hostel has an amiable, helpful staff, and there's a modest breakfast of bananas and bread every morning, with coffee. It's located in an area that is not too busy but remains to be close to the city center, and the main streets through which the main modes of transportation pass by, making it a great jump-off point to exploring Albay. The rooms are spacious and clean; truly bang for your buck.

      -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.

      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. I got to meet new friends both who are staying in my room and the others that I meet in the common area. If I go back to Legazpi, I'd definitely stay here again

      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.

      The place is known to the tricycle drivers and there is no difficulty going there from the airport. A place where there is peace. LOL A bit distant from the main road but I liked it. It allows me to walk and good thing that going to the hostel, there are signage. The place is suitable for rest after a tiring walk and tour places near Legazpi. Very cheap and with breakfast. The staff are also kind and friendly.

      Cheap, friendly, helpful staff but not the rooms are not ventilated”

      I was ooverall quite pleased during my stay at Backpackers Hostel. It it situated in a calm little street, 5 minutes walk fron the busy ciity hall square. The staff is nice, and happily offer some travel tips. The guests were a mix of friendly Filipino and international backpackers, and there's a terrace, a dining room and a roof top where guests can hang out, so it's a good place if you want to meet people. The disapointing point is the the 4 bed dormitory room does not have any ventilation, and has a stuffy/mouldy/sweaty smell.

      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!

      Pros. At first we thought that its hard to find but once we stepped in and we decided to go and eat out its very near everything. Just a walking distance to church, fastfood restos grocery etc.Staffs were nice and approachable. You can cook if u want they have a kitchen and a common dining area. We super love the rooftop where you can see Mayon and just enjoy the view while dining and drinking. Cons. The breakfast which is just bread and fruit but not a big deal. The wifi is just on the lobby. But overall thumbs up. Almost all the visitors who checked in are foreigners when we were there

      Stay was ok. You get what you've paid for. It's close to the center (5-10mins walk) The room is clean and comfortable. But he aircon is not that cold. The bathroom is outside the room - which is still ok. But it's untidy and the sink is clogged. Whenever we take a bath, we had to wait for the water to subside, which is a hassle especially if you're in a hurry. Breakfast is ok. 3 pandesal, scrambled egg, and coffee. But you can use their kitchen if you wanted to cook something else. The staff are nice and helpful. Suggestion: It was raining hard on our checkout day. There's no grab in Legazpi. So we had a hard time figuring out on how we'll manage to get to our next location. The only transportation they can offer is tricycle which is still a few minutes walk from the hostel. I suggest that they keep a taxi/private car's number for rent, since they don't offer point to point transportation to the guests.

      The place is clean and well maintained. It as everything you could wish from an hostel at cheap or ice. I would definitely go back. The fact that they have a kitchen is nice, but they should definitely get some new kitchen gears. Staff is nice and helpful but they don't know much about the region's tourists spots. Included breakfast is also a big plus but I feel like they could offer a little more diversity... Plus the eggs should be cooked upon clients arrival not pre-cooked. They could also provide free coffee.

      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.
