If the view of the majestic Mayon volcano from the rooftop of this hostel is any indication - then I must say Mayon Backpackers Hostel comes highly recommended. Everything, from the nice and helpful staff to the clean dorm rooms (you can choose fan or a/c at a 100 peso difference) and the freedom to cook food and hang out... More

Me and my girlfriend and our friends had a very pleasant stay in this hostel. The staffs are very accommodating especially Genius! Clean rooms, clean common areas and the location is nice since it is just minutes walk away from Legaspi main road but far from the noise of the city. They have free coffee, bread banana for breakfast but... More

The hostel is very run down, especially bathroom, which has very bad drainage, plus poor water pressure. The shower stopped when I was taking a shower. Moreover, I woke up several times a night when a person on bed above moved. In addition, there is no real blanket, just a very thin old bed sheet given to us to use... More

I have stayed at many backpackers hostels around the globe and this experience was solidly below average. Staff was practically non existing, space is cramped with no real ventilation (you will be HOT!) and the rooftop looked like it had been cool and fun 10 years ago but completely abandoned now. The area the hostel is in is not very... More

If you're planning to be out the whole day, then this hostel is perfect for you. Stayed at the Sampaguita Room: basic amenities, own rest room, the bed's mattress was a bit thin but when you were out the whole day doing activities, you won't notice the quality that much 'cause you just want to sleep. Haha! The hostel also... More

Nice place to stay at Albay. Would recommend to anyone who want a comfy accomodation under a tight budget. Place is a bit off the main road but can easily be located by google maps or by asking around.

We stayed in a private air conditioned room for 1000 php per night. The room was spacious and clean and upstairs common facilities had an excellent view of mt mayon. A simple breakfast and all day free coffee were also provided. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in an aircon ensuite private room for PHP1,000 and were very pleased with it. The hostel itself is small and homely, with a lovely rooftop area we didn't realise existed until our last night! Breakfast is very basic (bananas and plain, sweet bread rolls) but there is complimentary filtered water and instant coffee available all the time. The... More

Nice hostel with aircon in roo but not communal areas. Nice rooftop for relaxing and wifi in downstairs areas. Helpful staff, though their English is limited. An overall good base for a stay in legaspi.
