“Regretably, out of service at the present time (April, 2014)”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

But...... the views at the top at the Paseo 21 de Mayo are still wonderful and the souvenir vendors are waiting for you. If you don't want to walk up, take the collectivo with the red sign that says "Pacifico" and tell the driver you want the Paseo 21 de Mayo and he will drop you off at the lookout. Views are great. There are public toilets at the far side of the walk. There is a nice restaurant up the street called Cafe Portal. If its a warm day, go up to the terrace for great views while dining.

“Not working but still nice views”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Still worth climbing up to see the top part and see the track very close up (from underneath). No information when it will be working again, it should have already been finished. Take the concrete steps 150m to the left of the bottom entrance on Ave Carampangue.

“Great view when it works”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

The ascensor was not working. The view of the harbor is great from here. The naval museum located here is worth a visit. There are several places here selling souvenirs.

“Worth every penny.”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Beats walking up the hill. Cheap and worth the price for the privilege of watching your life flash before your eyes. If you are here, why would you miss out on this experience?

“Currently out of service”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Apparently hasn't been working since September and no clear idea when it will be fixed. Would make the journey up to the Paseo 21 de Mayo a lot easier and more interesting.
