The hotel room is so tiny and without windows. The air-con doesn't work well. the room is so hot and humid.

I stayed here last May 2014 alone. I cant really grade this hostel because there is no lower than terrible. I've stay in a lot of hostels in Asia & this hostel is the worst of the worst! I booked a solo room in this hostel. From the window, you can view the main highway. You could hear the noise... More

This hotel is known for cheap short stays. Yes its cheap but way cheaper than I expected. Sheets has foul smell and little hole circles. Water flowing from the shower fills in few drops only which took me longer hours taking a bath. Maybe during its opening era, they took pictures when the property was still okay. But now, it...

The rooms are overpriced for the area and the WiFi is only available in the lobby...well I went to the lobby and it's in bad condition and worst of all there were blood thirsty mosquitos on me non stop and the front doors are closed, maybe they're breeding inside the hotel! Hope I don't get Dengue fever!

I had booked a non-smoking room as I don't smoke. Arriving at the hotel, the front desk receptionist told me that I cannot smoke in my room. I said I had booked a "non-smoking room" (meaning I don't smoke) but she still continued with her spiel about designated smoking areas. It was frustrating to hear that as I was already... More

I was looking for a reasonable priced stay in Cebu. The website advertised value for money, flat screen tv, wifi in room, hot and cold showers, snoozeworthy beds, good design. The small room going for P950.00 or roughly $21 per night had no vacancy. I don't know how many $21 rooms they had. The next size up was medium and... More

We went to Island Stay because there was no other place that would take us for just one night during the Sinulog Week. Usually hotels in the downtown area are locked to a 3-day stay and we could not take that given that we had to move to a different city the following day. Keep in mind that this is... More

What's good about this hotel(?) is it's proximity to the MCIA. Nearby is the Marina Mall(?) and a 24-hour Zubuchon branch. The room obviously wasn't "pulido" in finish and was masked with white and neon paints but the space was clean and all utilities were functional. We only had a small problem with the air conditioning unit spewing bits of... More

I decided to choose Island Stay Hotel due to proximity of the place for our visitor who is staying for 3 Nights. The Staff has very limited capacity to decide. It is like a branch where the manager, who can decide, is always out of office. So, my visitor decided to change hotel due to very poor service. And our... More

Stayed in the large room and it was DIRTY and unkept. If you must stay here, I suggest you bring your own pillowcase and sheet. The Good-- The hotel however is ideally located near the airport and there is a 24 hour Zubuchon just across the street. Staff is friendly and helpful.
