Because of the pandemic, hostel has a different feel than its intent of being a social or party hostel. Still, its rooftop bar-slash-common area is open early in the morning until midnight. They do have happy hour promos too. There's a pool there too if you want to take a dip. Room (including bathroom) is kept clean and airconditioning works well which is perfect given hot weather. They provide hostel standards of socket and lamp per bed. There's a locker also that is big enough for backpacks or a luggage. Just bring your own lock. Beds are bigger and sturdier than your typical hostel but could use some optional curtain for more privacy. Location is okay - 15 mins walking distance to restaurants/bars towards the main road on the right, and on the left, to heritage sites like the ancenstral houses/museums, heritage monument, Magellan's cross and church. Staff are helpful and available most time of day.

The hostel was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and the food was nice. The hostel is also very social, with social events being on every night that we stayed here. Overall it is a great hostel to stay at when in Cebu.

Had an amazing time in this place! Angel & Justin made sure I had enough to eat and drink. There is always something to do in the evening in their own bar/restaurant. And the hostel is in Central spot to go either to the bus terminal or ferry port. Thanks guys!

Stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our time in the Philippines, staff were very attentive and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable, one slight issue we had was we were in the two bunk beds nearest the air con and god blimey was it beyond freezing and noisy! We went on the pub crawl which was so much fun Andy & Kat were great, again note that a transfer back from the pub crawl is not included which we hadn’t realised until the club but it isn’t a far walk so not too bad! Overall fab stay & would 110% recommend to others!

Met some great people when we stayed here, we’re only here for one night and they made us feel super welcome. Had one of the most fun and best nights we had in the Philippines here. We even had free welcome drinks, then more free drinks there’s beer pong, pool table, music, a swimming pool and a smoking area. For our room we had a very comfortable bed, a good air conditioner and WiFi. Make sure you also get the cocktail: Sex in Cebu City it was the best Highly recommend staying here, would definitely stay in a Mad Monkey again
