I will recommend the place to my friends. It's our first time to visit Cebu & I'm glad I chose USDA.”
It was a wise choice on my part to choose USDA dormitory hotel for my kids and my mom. It was very near to Sto. Rosario Parish Church, famous food chain, 7-11, mini carinderia for meals and you can walk to the famous landmarks in the heart of Cebu City. Most especially, they have courteous & helpful staff from the guards, house cleaning staff and special mention to April, James & David in the reception area. Thank you for all the help. God bless you all!
Two thumbs up!”
The hotel is a recommendation to all the travelers in Cebu. It was my first time in Cebu and i'm with my parents. This is a good place to stay. We stayed at the Standard Room, the room is very clean and spacious enough for the three of us. The staffs are very accommodating and kind to us. In terms of location, it is in the city and near to the tourist destinations in Cebu. I will recommend this is to all my friends and to all of those who are finding a place to stay in Cebu. Two thumbs up, USDA! :)
Good transient hotel”
Our itinerary for this tour included Bohol on the 1st day and Kawasan Canyoneering on the 2nd day. So we needed a place that is affordable and near to both the Port and the South Bus Terminal. USDA Dormitory-Hotel hit the spot. It helps that the place is directly in front of the University of San Carlos Law and Business School so locating the place is not hard. It also means that there would be food establishments around. In fact, 7-11 is right beside the hotel and Jollibee is just a few meters away. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. There was also a guard at the door every time we walk by, so we felt safe. In terms of wifi connectivity, it seems that there was a problem with their internet provider's modem/ router/ repeater so it was only available at the lobby. Although in our case, it wasn't an issue because we didn't really stay in the room for long periods of time unless we were sleeping. The room itself was clean enough, but there was a small problem with the plumbing. Also the water in the bathroom had to be allowed to run for several minutes the first time we opened it because it was a little rusty. Other than the small issues with the bathroom and wifi, we had a comfortable stay and we got our money's worth. So all in all, a good transient hotel. :)
Value for money”
Reception area open 24/7 hence there’s no problem checking in at midnight. Location is near markets, malls, laundry shops, convenience stores, restaurants, and attractions. There’s guards and CCTVs. Also, the place is in front of University of San Carlos. We felt safe since the place was secured and student-friendly. Staff members were always on standby and were addressing our needs anytime right away. Be it for extra pillow, room cleaning, food, or toiletries. Thank you, USDA, for making our stay in Cebu City convenient! 💕💕💕
The best budget-friendly hotel in Cebu that I've stayed in!”
It's worth every penny. Very clean. The staff is very accommodating. No internet connection during our stay but it's just because their internet provider is having some down time. They don't have a laundry service but there's one in front of the hotel. Very convenient. Close to the market, tourist spots, transpo is very much available since the location is a route to jeeps and cabs. There's western union just beside the hotel as well as 7-11 store. For those budget travelers, there's a Carinderia beside the hotel that offers a variety of food items. :) The best budget-friendly hotel in Cebu that I've stayed in. Thanks USDA! :)
2 Beds, New LCD TV, Daily Service, Great Location (see below)”
This was my first time staying here. I'll break it down into positive (+) and negative (-) aspects as detailed and thorough as possible: + & - Location = Colon is centrally located to just about everything you would need (Jollibee, KFC, Supermarket, fruit stands, etc.). At the same time it can be a little daunting at night as there are poor people and beggars who will pester you the moment you walk out. During the day it's not bad and I walked around with my Filipina girlfriend and felt safe. + Room = It might appear small but the cheapest option you get (1) double bed and (1) single bed so a total of two beds or room for 3. Also you get a fairly new LCD TV which has great color and channel selection. + Staff = Daily room service is awesome. They were attentive and cleaned either in the morning or afternoon. Upon entering or leaving they were very polite and professional. - Facilities = It says laundry services but that turns out NOT to be correct. I asked and they said no. It's the business next door that is not affiliated with them. But the charge is 30 pesos per kg and the business looked shady. I ended up buying soap from Ayala Mall and washing my own clothes. + & - Wifi = The WiFi started out good. I stayed 14 nights. If the hotel wasn't fully booked then the wifi was reliable and fast enough for app messages (WhatsApp, Viber, etc.) but not for video calls. When the hotel was fully booked the Wifi would kick off for up to 15 minutes at a time. So keep that in mind. Also I had a prepaid GLOBE sim and there was no signal in my room on the lower floor. So my mobile data package was useless. My gf has Sun and had data and signal. So if you are getting a SIM and want to stay at USDA, don't get a Globe sim. Also at Jollibee my phone said 3G but no data whatsoever. Other: * From Mactan airport my meter varied depending on route, speed, traffic, etc. Expect 220 - 410 pesos. Most taxi drivers don't know USDA hotel so tell them Sogo near Col
A recommendation to all :)”
Two thumbs up to USDA. We extended 1 more night because we really loved the service of the hotel. Staffs are very accommodating and the rooms are clean and spacious enough for the 3 of us. Location is in the city so it is near to the tourist destinations. This is a recommendation if you want a good place to stay in Cebu City.
Everything is Excellent from the location, staff, cleanliness and budget friendly. From Macau int. Airport we book grab going to hotel. Advise the driver that the dorm hotel is near to University of San Carlos. Location - walking distance to magellans cross,malls and specially to south bus terminal if you're planning to go to beach. Staff- very accomodating. The security guard assigned in the morning and evening shift will help you in the direction as well as the frontdesk. They will smile at you everytime you enter at the hotel. Safety- we would say that security is good since it is located near the universities. With CCTV and guard. Cleanliness- Approve, Though the hotel is little bit old but they manage to make the room clean. They change the towel and bed sheet everyday. Prize is really cheap but the service is excellent we'll definitely choose USDA again. All cebuanos are really good looking 😊 Thank you USDA good job!!
Friendly staff and clean room we receive when we check in. 7-11 is just step away from hotel and Jollibee is just over the corner. A few Thai massage shop near by and really a cheap price ( but not recommended unless you aren't really want a strong massage). Room cleaning and towel change Everyday for our 3 day stay and you may keep your valuable thing and also room key at reception when you going out with no extra charge. Reception also can help you to book tour if you need. Free WiFi but very hard to connect inside the room ( only if you are staying in the first room from walk way) but very good connection at lobby. Very nice hotel and I'll definitely recommend to all people who heading to Cebu.
my family was in USDA Domitory-Hotel last 3-6 Dec., they were 3 seniors and my cousin they were very satisfied and planning to make another booking in the near future. Thank u so much USDA for the best accomodation u serve them every day cleaning of thier room and everyday changing sheets and towels, they say the whole stay was just simple beautifull many many thanks kept doing these.........
Some of the staffs aren’t guests-friendly. ”
I super appreciate one of the guards at USDA Dormitory Hotel. He was so friendly and cheerful. Great job, kuya guard!
A solid option in the middle of the action”
A value-for-money accommodation right in the middle of the action. The hotel is smack in the old Cebu city center. The lobby is showing some age, but the place feels and looks clean. My Superior Room was spacious and clean, although the closet could use some new paint. Rooms have no views. Staff were very accommodating. A no-frills, solid option in Cebu City.
Price is cheap compared to other hotels in the city, it is a plus that the hotel is located in the heart of cebu. U can ride a multicab in front of the hotel which only cost 7pesos or few cents (if dollar currency) it will take u to different parts of the city. Sto. Nino church/basilica is walking distance as well as colon street. Just be aware of the rugby boys near the area, they didnt do us any harm but its kinda scary when we see them. Its safe because there isa security guard and the staff is very helpful. Overall 9/10. We really had a good stay in this hotel.will come back here in our future travel to cebu :)
Great Value for Money; Beyond my expectations”
Location is great. Walking distance to tourist spots, Pier and Cebu South Bus Terminal. There's also a convenience store right beside it. Near shopping malls, fast foods and banks. The room is clean. We were able to sleep comfortably. Staffs are accommodating. We were allowed to leave our baggage in their lobby since we arrived too early (Our room is not yet available at that time) so we can already start with our city tour. Thumbs up!
The room is very affordable. The room looks good even if the price is cheap. The room comes with a private bathroom with hot and cold shower but it’s size just too small. They have no smoking room but you can smoke outside the hotel. The location is just less than 10 minutes away from Cebu South Bus Terminal.
Great value for money. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. Location is either good or great depending on where you will be going and what you will do in Cebu City. No luxuries but there was really nothing to complain about except wifi not being available in the rooms.
Above average room for the price but it smelt mouldy”
I was GRANDPAcking in Cebu City for 2 nights and chose the USDA. I arrived early at noon, but my room was ready so I could check in straight away. The girls at reception were very friendly. The room was above average for the money (for the Philippines) but the room smelt as soon as you entered. It smelt 'mouldy' - but there were no signs of any mould. The aircon was good. The cable tv was good. The shower was good (cold water). The bed was comfortable.
I love the location of the place. It's location is near famous landmarks in Cebu City so it will help you save a little more on transportation. The hostel has the basic necessities you will need. The place is cozy and clean. The place is great for backpackers.
Excellent location and very affordable”
The hotel is located in downtown Cebu city. There's no free breakfast but there's a convenience store adjacent to the hotel or you can avail their all day breakfast. The price of the room is very affordable. Excellent for groups or families. It's also walking distance to the local market where you can buy dried fish and souvenirs.
Affordable and convenient place”
This is my 3rd time booking at USDA. And still believe about giving my satisfaction on staying in Cebu with their place.
