The place is clean and comfy. Staffs are very accommodating and attend to your needs with care. If you are just a traveller wanting to have a place to stay or sleep this is good. But be mindful of your belongings as you might be unfortunate to co-room with someone who steals. Always bring your valuables or request for a locker. Also the location is a bit scary outside, better if you can book a grab or contract a service to pick you up.

One of the most (if not the most) affordable in the heart of Cebu City.”

Decent dorm with privacy curtains. Usually has the best price I could find for Cebu City. Is walking distance to Magellan's Cross, Fort San Pedro, Pier 1 and downtown Cebu. Bathrooms and showers are decent. Staff is friendly and if you give suggestions for improvements, they do listen. It is still a dorm though, so keep your expectations contained. I've never really had problems with roommates here, people are usually considerate. Most are travellers who are tired at the end of the day so it gets peaceful by 10-12PM.

If you're onboarding to the ferry, it's a good place to stay one night. The hostel is cozy, reception is informative. However, the surrounding area is not so clean. They only got cold showering water and the outbound pressure is quite low. Wish they can put a current between the aisle and the restroom.

Overall fine. Staff weren't very helpful or knowledgeable at check-in - weren't able or willing to give any food recommendations in the area nor information about the ferry for the next day. The location is great if you're catching the ferry to Bohol, but it's a pretty dodgy area and I didn't feel very safe walking to get dinner at night. Would not recommend particularly for solo female travellers.
