The Guesthouse is very cheap but this is the difficult part: Getting IN and OUT because the owner has difficult rules to follow. When you leave or return to the guesthouse, you have to call the attention of the owner because he always padlock the gate. They have a curfew so you should return to your room before 12 mn. Basically, they will not give you a key for the gate. The owner obviously has no respect. He even shouted at one guest staying at the guesthouse. PROs - Cheap accomodation - Near to the airport - Walking distance to highway for public transport - Walking distance to mall CONs - Lack of light at night. - No key given to guest - 12 mn curfew - Owner/staff is rude My advice? Don't ruin your holiday staying here. There are better guesthouse in Manila.

This guesthouse is a nice place to stay if you are on a tight budget. However the facilities were just average. The room had all the basic amenities bu there are other better options around this place. The owner has kept the place in a preserved manner.

English follows, 2011年に宿泊した時のレビューです(遅くなってすみません) boracayに行くtransitで深夜に短時間ですが、友人と2人でツインルーム?に宿泊しました。 フィリピン(と言うか欧米風)のよくあるお家の作りで、オーナーは日本人の方でした。 お部屋もシーツもお部屋についていたバスルームも清潔でした。 民家なので場所が分かりづらくairport taxi(yellow taxi)で行ったら道に迷われメータがたくさんまわったので(汗)、送迎を頼んだ方が安いかもしれません。 オーナーの方は親切でした。お話好きなので好き嫌いが分かれるところだと思いますが、現地情報を聞けばいろいろ教えてくれるでしょう。 翌日空港まで行くタクシーを見つけるのを手伝ってくれました! ホームステイのような感覚で快適に滞在出来ると思います。 my friend and i stayed twin room(?) one night in 2011. it s one of a cheapest but comfortable BB near the airport. it s a common western house and the owner is a japanese kind guy. room, beds and bathroom in the room are clean. however this house is difficult to find so you ld better ask the pick up service from the airport. it might be cheaper than the airport taxi. you would feel at home!the owner will help you a lot! i m sure!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night because we wanted a place that's closed to the airport. I was very surprised at the accommodation. We had to go up a steep flight of stairs, which can be dangerous for older people or those with problems with mobility. There was a toilet in the room, but only for peeing, and you had to go down to take a shower or if you wanted to poop. The Wifi didn't work when we tried it. Everywhere, there was the smell of dog or cat poo. On the plus side, it was really cheap (~PhP160 per bed), it was near the airport, and the Japanese owner was very friendly, not only to me but also to my American boyfriend. The other guests were also nice, especially the Chinese woman who had hung her wet panties everywhere in the room. All in all, I would recommend if you need a cheap place to stay that's close to the airport.

This is the coolest place in the Philippines! The Japanese owner is super cute. He's an old guy who's been in the Philippines for 30 years. He lives a quiet life running the hostel with his Japanese wife and is a winner. The hostel is pretty horrific. The outside floors are a bit flooded. The bathrooms don't really work, but this is the kind of place that I absolutely love. The dorm is tiny with lots and lots of sub-par bunkbeds. This is exactly the type of place where you meet travel buddies. There was a Chinese girl who hung all of her panties up on random beds. These kinds of things just don't happen at boutique, high-end hostels. You make friends with the other people living at the hostel due to space constraints, and the bare-boned nature of the place. Don't forget, it costs under $4 (P165) for a bed. I would definitely come back and stay here again. Nearby are lots of places to eat, a convenience store, access to transportation, and a major airport if you feel like hopping to another city. Check it out, you won't be sorry!

Place is very clean and good value. Security is good. Washroom is nice, hot water and clean. Owner can come off as rude but I think it's not on purpose as she's very helpful when talking about attractions and always gives approximate prices which helps a ton. There's also cheap breakfast/food available and towels. Good place to spend a night.

I stayed 2 nights in fan dorm. Customer was only me although, There are 8 beds in the room. Room is solo clean. Security is good. Because The owner always lock the gate. Location is so so good. WalterMart is 5 min on foot. This WalterMart is good point to indicate for jeep driver. Hot shower is also available. Both room price and beer are cheap. But fan is slow. So I felt uncomfortable. And there is no window screen in dorm room. Is window shut, the room is hot. But if window open, mosquito and cockroach can enter inside. Actually I saw a cockroach enter in. Wifi is not available in dorm room. The Owner who is Japanese is friendly but emotional too much. I mistakingly left dorm fan running and went down for taking shower. At that time, he scolded me with angry. And he added "You can go out whenever you want!" in a tone of COMMAND. He want to save electricity. 2days later , I left.

no-frill arrangement that charges apparently for everything. however, they had a flexible cancellation policy. was supposed to stay for 2 nights, but stayed for only 1 without having to lose much of my money. the stay was descent, although i think there're places in manila that offer better value for that amount of money.

Firstly the room LOOKS clean but once you stay you realise it's infested with Ants. Read other reviews say same. The staff seem friendly enough since I'm Australian but to my partner who is filipina they barely looked at her. So difficult to get in or out not door just gate you must knock with coin or yell out for them to hear you. EXPENSIVE! they tried to charge me more for room than what site says. Charge you from bed sheets, towels. If you want nice room go to: green mango inn, close to there and much nicer

The hostel is located a bit far from the international airport (around 30min by taxi), but except for it it's quite nice! I stayed both of private room and dormitory. Both were well cleaned. Air conditioner in private room worked with no problem. I felt like shower water pressure was a bit weak and it was hard to get wireless Internet inside the private room. No problem inside the dormitory. You can take Japanese food (like Miso-shiru or Curry) with cheap price, because the owner is Japanese. The hostel is safely locked at the entrance gate. Moreover DOG!!........if you are alright with dog. I really like playing with him! I'll be back if I get a chance to visit Manila again.
