Cebu Island, Philippines2 contributions
Any budget, Any person, any circumstance this place can cater to everyone. To the traveller with a bit more to spend getting the higher priced rooms are more than worth each cent. The staff are incredibly helpful and can answer most questions you have about the island in English. No complaints on the home cooked meals just like momma used to make. The bathrooms and rooms are semi comfortable, but very clean. Its location is serene and very close to the pier and city. To the traveller with less money to throw around this is your place. Anyways half the fun here was socializing with fellow people. (Would not reccomend for introverts). But besides all of this. This can easily top premium hotels in terms of bang for buck.

We only stayed at the lodge for one night but I would have loved to have stayed here for longer. The lodge and grounds are so quaint and quirky and the staff are so lovely and welcoming - Gloria even brought us flowers for our room when we arrived (she called herself a romantic)! PROS -Location: 10 min walk from the ferry port, supermarkets and tricycles nearby, felt safe and secure -Grounds: the accommodation is a large mansion with a shaded garden area and lots of seating areas to relax in apart from your room, and meet others -Good WIFI -Shared bathroom: Cleaned throughout the day, showers with good pressure and warm water, towels provided -Our twin room: clean, comfortable, enough space, AC, affordable price -Staff: Helpful and friendly staff, possible to organise tours via the lodge -Food: Yummy Breakfast with vegan options available all day for 100ish pesos. In the evenings there is a BBQ and karaoke available if requested (but the lodge is quiet from 11pm) CONS -None: definitely stay here!!

Gloria, her husband and all the staff made my stay memorable. The hostel is made from one of the oldest house in Tagbilaran and is conveniently located just close to a ferry terminal and around everything you need for the perfect stay. While sitting in the lobby/reception I felt the history. The rooms are cleaned every day plus bedding. Beds comfy with mosquito nets, fans and lockers (bring your own locker) available. Toilets/bathrooms also cleaned regularly. One coffee a day and jug of filtrated water available too. Different breakfast can be ordered or smoothie. AND strong WIFI!!! The social life was thriving on the veranda every evening. There you can meet fellow travellers and share your experience or plan and team up for a next trip. The staff and the owner Gloria are friendly, helpful and all the time smiling and nothing was problem. They make home for you. I would like to thank them for a nice touch and surprise they prepared for me. During the stay I had birthday and they prepared for me birthday cake which I could share with them and other fellow travellers. Once again thank you very much. Come there and listen how the hostel started its mission 17 months ago.

The owner is very friendly and helpful, she gives good recommendations on things to do and where to eat, and even made me tea when i was feeling sick (I had a cold). The hostel itself is very cool looking and some interesting history. I would highly recommend this place .

An historic old house that is now a hostel. Owners are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. It was so nice to stay in a place that had a bit of character to it and I'd be happy to stay there again if I go back.

Staying here was the best. My dorm room had air con, good fast (and free) WiFi. The owners - Gloria and Ray were so hospitable and welcoming. They go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay. All their staff (especially Joyce) are so friendly and are always willing to help. The hostel offers: scooter hire for 400pesos a day; great recommendations for places to explore and restaurants to eat (including a night market at the end of the drive). It’s also only a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal. I honestly couldn’t rate this place higher!

I came here co incidenty the house is a museum and has a big history the owners are super friendly the staf to they serve bteakfast juces and other drinks and snacks. They change eveyday the cheats and towels, there is a small terras but you can sit in the garden too. Wifi works perfect what is not often in the Philippines. There is the best restaurant from Bohol 1 block away (El Fresco) the arrange scooters and othe stuf for you it's about 1km from the port. At the moment they have only dorms with or without airco, because the ptivate rooms are not ready yet..
