Liked: One of the few backpackers places to stay on Cebu. Great to meet fellow travelers. The "Dorm" up top is well set up and the fans are well positioned. One of the cheapest places to stay I found.You can do your Open Water PADI at a load of places around the area for about 350 $/15000 Peso

Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: The owner was unfriendly and rude to us and other guests who had stayed in the guesthouse. He also gives terrible local information and we felt it was all about taking money and nothing about making the guests feel comfortable. I would not recommend anyone to stay at this guesthouse especially as there are many other options locally.


The property's response is

Please allow me to comment your review.
-you and your friends were very drunk, making noise until 03:30 am
all other guest was awake in the middle of the night and did complained to us next morning that they couldn’t make early morning dive, because of lack of sleep
ignoring ‘to be silent’ from my wife
smoking inside the room - its not allowed
burning cigarette on wooden floor
We doesn’t want to have a fire as in Boracay and Alona beach few years ago.
