Really great hosts, helped us a lot with our trip to Banaue. They even made me special food because I was feeling sick. Just watch out for the water all around the Philippines (I got sick in Manila). Ask for a room far from the main road as it can get quite noisy at night. Ask for Do Raemon (guide)... More

On our 5th day in Ifugao, we stayed in this lodge. The ambiance is more of warm and cozy with a great view of the terraces. Food taste better though a bit pricey compared to other restaurant. No in-room WiFi, but the best alternative to the other lodge we have stayed on our first day.

The service is good, staff is friendly. It was like home when I visited Banaue. The cold and breezy atmosphere is like what we have here in long island, NY. I stayed at stairway lodge and I was lucky to have a room fronting the rice terraces. The view is spectacular. Food is very local, typical philippine delicacy, they should... More

We only stayed one night which was enough time to go to the Banaue viewing point on day 1, Batad terraces on day 2 (via the tourist office) and catch the 7pm bus to Manila. We stayed in a double ensuite room which size was ok, had lots of light and was quiet in terms of traffic etc as it's... More

I and my friend stayed in the Stairway Lodge on January 11 ana 12, 2014. When I complained to the lady owner that there were no toilet seats and power outlet, she said to her staff that I complained too much. The next day when I helped my friend to complain that his room was smelly and he wanted to... More

The room has no electric outlet. You will have to pay additional charge when you ask them to charge your phone or laptop. No heater, so you'll take a shower with ice cold water. This is not my preferred guest house lacking those I mentioned.

This place has a lot of potential, sadly it lacks in many areas. We ended up here as all the other guesthouses were full. I fear that Stairway gets all the left over travellers who have not pre booked anything. We stayed in a private double with shared bathroom. The room is fine if a little loud (located on the...

Seriously, please look into where you will stay ahead of your arrival in Banaue and carefully read people's reviews before you book something because we had a really bad experience winging it this time around. I don't mind simple accommodations, but I have a huge issue with unsanitary places. In our two nights at the Stairway Lodge, I saw over... More

I went to Banaue last November 2011 to do some unwinding. I found this inn along the main street and was able to book a nice room (good fro 2 or 3) for 400. I was traveling alone so it was worth the money. :) The rooms are clean and the view is really good. They also have hot shower.
