The staff are courteous and helpful. No elevator. Dark hallway and you cannot get any reading inside the room since the lighting is bad. No mirror in the room, only in the bathroom. They charge early check-in per hour. They only provide bar of soap, shampoo, towel and toilet tissue. Very close to the Luneta Park, and walking distance to... More

We needed a place to stay near St. Luke's Extension Clinic and US Embassy. We booked this hotel thru TripAdvisor for a really good deal! Rooms are excellent and clean! Staff are always accomodating, helpful and friendly. Restaurant in the lobby serves excellent food as well. Hotel is walking distance to Robinson's Place Manila, Luneta Park, ATMs, 24-hour convenience stores... More

Casa Bocobo is a decent budget hotel. It was clean enough and had ok rooms. The beds were good and the staff were polite. The wifi has some issues with dropping out at times but generally was decent. (Speeds between 100k and 500k). A comment about the area however; it is very rough. There are lots of homeless people around... More

We've stayed at the Casa Bocobo for one night, we got a room on the third floor, which was quite spacious, had AC, but the second we stepped in the room, the heat hit us with around 40C, and smell of dampness. The location was a ghost town after 20:00, but it's close to Intramuros and Robinsons Mall. We paid... More

Pros: - Friendly staff - Hotel is well located Cons: - The first night we were given an awful room on the second floor. Was very disappointed as the room was dark, had a funny smell and disgusting bedsheets - We were given a much better room on our last couple of nights which was spacious with better lighting and...

Even though I didn't get much enough sleep for personal reason, I was so inlove with my bed. It was so soft and very comfy. My TV was okay, has a lot of channels. The restroom in my room was clean, has soap, towels ready. My breakfast was okay. Overall, it was affordable, clean and nice.

I have stayed few times in this hotel. The personnel is very nice and respectful, the price is reasonable and the food is cheap and good. The location is good but the surrounding is not so friendly mostly in the night time.

The place is clean, quiet and budget-wise good for backpackers. Location is good (near malls and red district of Manila). Just need to invest more on training for staff about customer service and interaction.
