I stayed back in 2008 As TripAdvisor only allows us to go back 1yr.
The staff was Excellent
When they Clean the room They Move the bed & All washing walls floor everything.
Food is Good also.
I enjoyed all my time while at this Hostel.
Forget wasting money on the 35 dollar on up
I believe it was about 7 dollars a day here.
Will Definitely stay again
Across from Medical College

Security was good also 1-2 guards

I would definitely Recommend anyone to stay here.
Save your money stay here & spend more on enjoyment to the waterfalls & More

As the name suggests it is a pension house so you would expect it to be cheap....and it is. About $12 a night but you can hire for short time of 12 hours. The rooms are quite spacious, clean with a TV and the beds are as good as you can get for 12 bucks. In an old radio advertising campaign they stated that it was comparable to the Hilton Hotel. Ok not quite but it was funny at the time. The hotel is nothing to look at but you will find for the price it represents really good value.

Tried searching for a good hotel to stay in Iligan. However, my buddies suggested this pension house. I don't like the idea at first but it turned out to be a good decision.

Unlike some hotels that charge 1k up, this place although small, but it packs all the neat basic things a traveller needs, bed and bath and if course, security. Considered that there was red alert during my visit.

Always a go-to whenever I visit Iligan City. It's behind Adventist Medical Center Iligan. For 200Php you get a tiny room with a tv for 12hours. If you want the 300 room for 24hrs, make sure to check-in at 12noon. Anyway, the bed was ok. Room comes with towel, small soap and shampoo sachet. A pillow and a thin blanket. I didn't like that my room had to be on the 4th floor. Going up the spiral staircase is dizzying and exhausting especially if I've come from walking around the city. The location is good. It's walking distance (5-10mins) from Jollibee, McDo, Mang Inasal, Greenwich, Chowking, Infini Tea, Coffee Works, etc. In the mornings, I had breakfast at a carenderia that was just around the corner from the place - like a 30-second walk.

Frontdesk - not really accommodating but they answer your questions albeit without a smile but for 200php/12hours, I didn't care.

To get to the city, ride a jeepney and pay the fare of 7php.

This place has the few basic things we need: A bed, A bath, Wifi, Tv and Airconditioning. The room is plain white and they provide you a very small naked soap and half a shampoo.. but it's okay. Most people don't intend to stay long here...if you know what I mean. They provide a towel, one pillow and one thin blanket each bed.

During the day, you might hear cars honking disrespectfully (because it is near a hospital and school) but otherwise quiet at night. Do not expect power outlet though because they won't provide you one inside the room sometimes. You have to go to their lounge to charge, chat or eat.

All in all, very okay for a short stay and for those who are in a tight...budget.

UPDATED RULE JULY 2019:
to all dear Client-visitors in ILIGAN CITY who wish to STAY at this Pension House namely Famous pension haus, Morvies inn, & Floral inn) keep ready yourself and guided that any FOODs & DRINKs including bottle water IS NOT ALLOWED inside. You can leave your foods including Grocery items at the GUARD and pick it up upon leaving. Not a FRIENDLY anymore to stay in for travelers, to be HONEST the WORST ever!

think before you stay. thank you!
