Worth pointing out from the start, I was a poor student backpacking for a few weeks when I stayed here. I didn't have a reservation when I arrived and that was sorted out very quickly. I was staying in a 6-person dorm with its own bathroom. The bed was sufficiently comfortable and the sheets were sufficiently clean. All the common... More

We booked a 4-bunk fan room online and when we got there they provided us with a 6-bunk air-conditioned room. We thought it was an upgrade but turns out the a/c was busted and we had no fan at all so afternoons were hot and stuffy. We don’t know what happened - they didn't even explain why the "downgrade".

I stayed here with four of my good friends last October 2013 and we had a great stay! We arrived here pretty early in the morning since we left Manila at night. We simply took a tricycle from the Legazpi bus terminal. We stayed in a dorm-style room for PhP 350 per head but since no one else stayed in... More

Stayed in this hostel with two friends. I've stayed in a lot more better hostels so far in the philippines. First the staff is not really social and welcoming. We also called the hostel to make a reservation. When they said they were fully booked, we did it through hostelworld. The next day we arrived and it wasn't even half... More

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.
