Before arriving at the hostel we sent an email to the owners just with some simple questions. It had been a while since we booked and we were worried about finding it. The owner emailed us back an extremely rude response about not reading their email carefully. I understand that it can be frustrating to answer customers questions if you... More

The pictures of agodo or booking. Com were false. Our 5 person room was a disaster. The women at the counter was very rude. We were trying to split money between friends, and she yelled at us to hurry up. I would never come back here. I am an experienced traveler and this was absolutely the worst.

We stayed here for 1 night and I had no wifi to read the review first. What a disguisting hostel! After travelling for a month in the Philippines, this was by far the worst.

We had paid for a private room with ensuite, but the shower didn't work and the toilet only just flushed. After they tried to move us to another room they realised that non of the ensuite showers worked and we were told to use the shared bathrooms. We were told we would get the difference between and ensuite and shared... More

I was sexually assulted by a member of the staff there and when I wrote the manager an email she never even answered me back and they still insisted on charging me for that night even though I had to leave because I was so scared. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

It was our last minute call since someone else turned us down after 24 hr journey. We decided to stay, needed to put our heads down asap...Place was very dodgy, full of bedbugs and mouldy smell, but staff was super friendly and would do anything to help you out, e.g. with a taxi etc. Food was delicious and cheap, so...

The staff is trying to explain on tripadvisor and hostelworld that they got bad reviews before but now they renovated the place and all is fine - ITS NOT! We booked a 500PHP room, fan with shared bathroom. The room was big but simple with plenty of furniture: a table, 2 chairs, a sofa, ... Nothing to complain about here... More

Stayed here as a couple for one night. If you need a place to stay close to airport it's cheap. Yellow metered taxi costs 140p from airport each way. They had WiFi only downstairs it broke up a little but when it worked it worked well. Nice little kitchen they had where they cooked breakfast (not included). However it was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our Townhouse was opened as a hobby, after we'd traveled, worked and were lucky with business in Asia, Europe, and the U.S.A. for almost ten years. We'd stayed in bamboo, beach huts, Asian guesthouses, Spanish pensionnes, American and European campgrounds, hostels, Korean yeogwans and Japanese ryokans on shoestring budgets. We hooked up 'on the road' while traveling in Hong Kong, Korea and Japan in Dec 83, got married 2 years later in 85, decided to have a baby and knowing we'd miss the energy, excitement and adventure of world travel opened the door of our 3 bedroom 2 bath townhouse for travelers as a hobby in 86 which has grown and evolved to the present 35 private rooms with 8 rates from P300 to P950 and 4 bed dormitory. ... more   less
