The Guesthouse is very cheap but this is the difficult part: Getting IN and OUT because the owner has difficult rules to follow. When you leave or return to the guesthouse, you have to call the attention of the owner because he always padlock the gate. They have a curfew so you should return to your room before 12 mn....

This guesthouse is a nice place to stay if you are on a tight budget. However the facilities were just average. The room had all the basic amenities bu there are other better options around this place. The owner has kept the place in a preserved manner.

English follows, 2011年に宿泊した時のレビューです(遅くなってすみません) boracayに行くtransitで深夜に短時間ですが、友人と2人でツインルーム?に宿泊しました。 フィリピン(と言うか欧米風)のよくあるお家の作りで、オーナーは日本人の方でした。 お部屋もシーツもお部屋についていたバスルームも清潔でした。 民家なので場所が分かりづらくairport taxi(yellow taxi)で行ったら道に迷われメータがたくさんまわったので(汗)、送迎を頼んだ方が安いかもしれません。 オーナーの方は親切でした。お話好きなので好き嫌いが分かれるところだと思いますが、現地情報を聞けばいろいろ教えてくれるでしょう。 翌日空港まで行くタクシーを見つけるのを手伝ってくれました! ホームステイのような感覚で快適に滞在出来ると思います。 my friend and i stayed twin room(?) one night in 2011. it s one of a cheapest but comfortable BB near the airport. it s a common western house and the owner is a japanese kind guy. room, beds and bathroom in the room are clean. however this...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night because we wanted a place that's closed to the airport. I was very surprised at the accommodation. We had to go up a steep flight of stairs, which can be dangerous for older people or those with problems with mobility. There was a toilet in the room, but only for peeing,... More

This is the coolest place in the Philippines! The Japanese owner is super cute. He's an old guy who's been in the Philippines for 30 years. He lives a quiet life running the hostel with his Japanese wife and is a winner. The hostel is pretty horrific. The outside floors are a bit flooded. The bathrooms don't really work, but... More

Place is very clean and good value. Security is good. Washroom is nice, hot water and clean. Owner can come off as rude but I think it's not on purpose as she's very helpful when talking about attractions and always gives approximate prices which helps a ton. There's also cheap breakfast/food available and towels. Good place to spend a night.

no-frill arrangement that charges apparently for everything. however, they had a flexible cancellation policy. was supposed to stay for 2 nights, but stayed for only 1 without having to lose much of my money. the stay was descent, although i think there're places in manila that offer better value for that amount of money.

Only stayed here for one night, before flying to Boracay the next day. It is out of the main part of Manila, though still relatively close to the shops. Not really much of a nightlife scene going on. The room itself was ok, though they do not provide bedsheets or towels. You have to pay extra for them. There is... More
