We booked the Sampaguita Room but ended at the 6-bed dorm room but they refunded us. It was still okay because we are the only ones in the room. The place is quite far the main road around 5mins walk. But near to the airport around ~3kms. The staff can answer most of your questions and needs. The place is... More

When I went there together with family, I initially tried to chek out reviews about this place. It became 2nd on my list. I won't mention the no. 1 on my list, (sensationalized probably--- but still EXPENSIVE), but after a few weeks of deliberation, I chose Mayon backpackers because of its location and accesibility to both Legazpi and Albay area....

Overall, it was a nice stay at this hostel. Location is not that hard to find. Walking distance from public transportation. You have a glimpse of Mayon Volcano on the rooftop. Free breakfast -- local bread and fruits.

I went to Mayon Backpackers Hostel via hostelworld. I didn't check what are the other options since the price was very cheap. The room I booked had no air-con (winch I didn't know about it) and was like seeping in sauna. The staff was not very able to give information where to go or what to do. One of my... More

Stayed here twice during my fieldwork, usually at least 2 nights each. Its about 10min walk to the main road, the 350 Php ($8) price is a bargain for an A/C room, with free breakfast (bread and banana) and unlimited coffee. They also have wifi and desktop for browsing. The place is clean, staff is friendly and accommodating, the bed... More

Our family of five stayed in this hostel and it was worth it! We slept in one big room and saved a lot compared to staying in a hotel. The place was clean, but the toilet door creaked. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable stay. Perfect for budget travellers.
