The idea is nice: an artsy, sociable hostel for budget travellers.
Pros: it's affordable, the beds are fine, the common area is a handy way to meet people (if you're travelling solo), it's in a good location off the main road, and they provide free water
Cons: The staff are pretty disinterested and unhelpful, the "breakfast" consists of a piece of bread you can put peanut butter on, it gets bright and hot very early (but what do you expect if you're sleeping outside?).
I enjoyed my time there and would probably stay again, but I just wish the breakfast could be slightly better and the staff could be friendlier/more helpful.
Also, if you arrive between 9pm and 6am, there is nobody at reception so you cannot check in - but you can grab some sleep in the hammocks in the common area so it's OK. Tip: bring a padlock so you can lock your valuables in one of the lockers. They don't sell padlocks nearby, you need to take a jeepney into San Fernando town to buy one there.More
