“Good Location but noisy room”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

It is very close to Ayala shopping mall, just 3 mins walk, and you can have everything there.
The decoration of the room is pretty and it is clean. However the wooden rooms cannot isolate any noise from corridor and next rooms. This hotel is on a main road where it is so noisy from the traffic even at mid-night. We booked a room with hot water shower but it is not working, it is not a big problem in Philippines. The staff are so friendly and helpful. It was a nice stay except the noise :)

Stayed at this place after we arrived from Cebu. I have always kept my eye on this place (I lived in Cebu for a year) since it's on Escario Street, near Ayala Center (5 min walk) and lots of restaurants/bars nearby (it's surrounded more by cafe's and restaurants now).

It has wooden floors, cute wallpaper, a bit quirky. They have their own restaurant/small bar right beside the lobby. It's located at the main road so you can just hail a cab or jeep (get 4L if you want to go to SM City = 8 pesos).

Cons: no guests after 10pm, and the toilet could use some improvement with tidiness.

The prices are really low and this is a hostel so don't expect a safety deposit box and a really spacious room and toilet. Overall, it's great for budget travelers, better than most hostels in the city. Will be staying again VERY SOON.

The staff is very accommodating; we asked for hot water, new towels & beddings, even kitchen utensils every now and then.

Room Tip: Room 204 faced a streetlight so our room was bright at night-bad for sleeping. And this is right abo...

It's basic but neat and clean and excellent value compared to what you get elsewhere in Cebu. Also, immoral activities are discouraged - in pleasant contrast to others. Friendly staff (esp Lilian the manager) - a good choice for anyone on a budget, and hard to beat. Compared better than some much more xepensive joints in town.

Another student and I are in the Philippines to complete research for our masters thesis. We are partnering with an organization based in Banilad. Students from last year's research group stayed at a nearby place which our taxi driver was unable to locate, so we stayed at Myra's. The staff was so friendly we decided to stay. Lillian, the front desk manager, was even helping us learn a few words in Cebuano each day. The rooms are really cute, however the outside of the building is not much to look at. It's a 10 minute walk to the Ayala Mall. The rooms were really clean, and the beds comfortable. I would stay there again, if I had someone to share the cost of the room with. It's loud though, which is the case with just about every hotel on Escario.
