“A good place in Cebu City”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

For a few nights stay this is a nice place, rooms are okay, bathroon inside the room and wifi which works pretty good. Luggage room so I could leave my stuff there and went for overnight trips around the island with the only things I needed for a few nights.
Cebu city is nothing to stay for though.

We had to spend a night in town as we were flying out in the very early morning. 625 Pesos for a double seemed okay, but the room was really bad. dirty, rundown, no window - just a bed. the shared bathroom was the same - old and dirty. we´ve been in the Philippines for 6 weeks and were travelling on a low budget, but this is def the worst room we had on this trip

After more then a year traveling asia on a tight budget, this must be the worst guesthouse we visited. We're ok with old, bad neighborhood, bad location, unfriendly staff. But when cockroaches bump into you when you leave your room in the evening and you even find some in your room. That crosses a line. It gets worse if the owners don't seem to care.


Awful place!

Stayed there last February, found it was one of the cheapest dorms and I was travelling on a budget. We stayed on the second floor with the private bathroom and I think it was the best decision because the common toilet is not that clean. Well don't expect much as you that's how much you paid for. In terms of accessibility, this is a great place as it's beside the road (especially when its Sinulog time as the parade passes by the street where Cebu Guesthouse is located. Basic necessities are present, but don't look for more like, wifi, pool, gym etc. This is for backpakers on a budget. Overall, it was a nice and peaceful stay at Cebu Guesthouse, we were never bothered by anyone, budget wise, it was great as we have saved a lot and we don't usually stay much at the hostel so it doesn't matter if the place looks like an old house. In reality, this was actually a house converted into a hostel. Thanks Cebu Guesthouse, won't think twice to comeback.:)

Room Tip: If you want a better toilet, choose the private rooms with private toilet.:)

I stayed there as it was one of the cheapest dorms and i had to catch a flight the day after from Cebu Airport.. the only good thing is the staff, very helpful and kind but the place was very dirty and security non existent. Yes they have lockers in the room but the main door doesn't close at night. Bathroom is very very dirty (and trust me i am a very flexible person, backpacker and i even slept on concrete so you get my point)...

The atmosphere was very unfriendly in there even if there were common areas they were also pretty dirty.

Bed sheets were ok and the lower beds had a curtains for extra privacy which was a bonus. Other than that i think this is not a good deal for the price (almost 400 pesos!)

Room Tip: At least get the lower bed with curtains and always put your flip flops to get to the bathroom...

I selected this place due to its roadside location where the Sinulog mardi gras passes by each year. Alas its location is one of the best asset of this property. Don’t expect too much though since this is like a hostel or backpackers haven. Don’t expect 5 star lobby, extravagant seats and posh furniture. The truth is the place is like an old house where you feel at home-very laid back and with the basic amenities in accordance to your room type. We rented a family room and it was ok pretty much like a boarding house type. The room has hole, cracks, decoration is very old and a little dusty. The bathroom is okey though some area of it accumulate some water that doesn’t know where to go. The kids have fun with the room. We used it as our “Hub” for the sinulog even where my mom can rest after standing in the streets for hours. The kids can just ran back to the room to grab something to eat. Overall, it was worth the budget that I paid. No regrets we have fun and we have a good night rest. We even brought our little dog with us. Thanks, Cebu Guest House. Til next Sinulog.

Room Tip: Nice place to stay during Sinulog Mardi gras.

I had an amazing stay at Cebu Guesthouse. The staff was really friendly and helpful, rooms and bathrooms were clean and cozy, sleeping area was quiet, and they provide lockers so long as you bring your own padlock (which is an essential piece of equipment if you are backpacking). The hostel is located on Mango St. which is a pretty convenient location for catching jeepneys to the mall, or to any other part of Cebu City. Be aware if you are a male and foreign looking and step out for a midnight snack you will be harassed by "ladies of the night," and in many cases "ladyboys of the night." All part of the SE Asia experience...

Othere guests at Cebu Guesthouse were also awesome. Met some pretty amazing travelers and locals with great stories. There is a little dining area downstairs which served as a great place to chill with other travelers, have some food, and drink a few beers (these things are not provided by the hostel). There is also ample common space by the rooms so you always have contact with people coming in and out of their rooms.

Overall really loved my time here.

If you are looking for luxury or a "hotel" this is not the place for you. You are better off spending some more pesos and going elsewhere. But if you are looking for an awesome time with awesome people in the fashion of true travelers and hostel style living this is a great place to stay.

In the words of a famous American... "I will return..."

Room Tip: I did not stay in any of the downstairs areas next to the kitchen or the laundry room which did seem...
