    Approachable and helpful staff, clean rooms, large CR

    i stayed in a single room for about 4 hours while waiting for my friends but I got to experience eating at the school canteen (which is pocket friendly); i also heard the teacher calling the students through the loudspeaker in my room, used the comfort room (outside my room) which is really big for 1 person and almost reprimanded for bringing the shoes inside the room :-) even then, i had a good rest.

    Zero atmosphere”

    The bed was comfy and the room was clean and it's near some excellent (but expensive) restaurants, but in all other aspects this "hostel" fell short. The entrance to the complex is hidden below the road overpass (not obvious on Google maps) which was tricky to explain to the taxi driver who didn't recognise the name of the business. Once inside we pulled up to a darkened building and I was greeted by a very young security guard (only his "Security" emblazoned tshirt gave away his status). I was uncomfortable as it was already very dark at 6pm, I was alone and there was no one else around. He signed me in and led me down a darkened alley and I started to consider my getaway plan. Thankfully he showed me to a lit building where, eventually, someone else arrived to check me in. The dorm seems to be part of a language school, but no one spoke enough English to confirm this. There was only one other person in the dorm and she wasn't interested in conversation. The shower was old and sprayed everywhere and the toilet had no loo roll. I was uncomfortable walking by the dark, busy road (with no pavement) but had no option in order to get anywhere for dinner. By 7:30AM loud music started blaring from next door and someone was shouting over a tannoy. Also, breakfast is terrible which was the killer for me. 109PHP for over sugared instant coffee and your standard Filipino breakfast fare. So grateful I was only here for 1 night.

    以下、個人的に良かったと思う点です。 ・ITパークやアヤラモールに近い(徒歩5-10分?) ・ウォーターサーバの水飲み放題 ・プール有り ・回線(Wifi)速度、平均5Mbps前後 セブで安い宿泊先を探してくれる方には良いと思います。管理人さん達がとても親切で、共同トイレの部屋を予約しましたが、専用トイレ付きの部屋が空いているという事で、ワンランク上の部屋に泊めていただきました。いつもありがとうございます。 なお、部屋の中でたまに小さいアリを見る事もありますが、セブでは普通のため、私はあまり気になりませんでした。

    韓国、中国系の寄宿学校の寮を兼任しているドミトリーである。食事は生徒のみに作られるので、食事は外で取るしかない。部屋は大きく、クローゼットもあるが鍵がかけられない。私のときは英語の先生が同室であった。フィリピンでは南京虫予防に電気をつけて寝る習慣がある。 ITパークの近所で、歩いて移動することができます。アヤラに買い物に出かけるには少し歩かなくてはいけませんが、大通りに面しているので、バイクタクシーやジプニーを捕まえやすい。飲食店はあまりないので、アヤラ方面に歩けば路店はたくさんあるし、懐に余裕があればITパークのレストランなどで食事ができる。ITパークにはこじんまりとしているが日用品を売っている店もある。
