Very clean, great customer service from karen ann
I am very happy with my 1 night stay. It is my first time to stay on a bedspacer and i felt uncomfortable at first because you sleep with other people you don’t know but in terms of cleanliness it is excellent. I commend karen ann for being attentive to my request and i am satisfied of her customer service.

A very clean and comfortable stay
The hostel was exceptionally clean, new, and modern which made it a very comfortable stay. I liked the curtains for privacy and each bed space had a lamp, outlet, and a small shelf. The bedrooms have AC but no AC in the common but they had fans and it was completely fine. WiFI is fast and works well in the room and the staff was really friendly and helpful. They also have a security guard at night so it felt really secure. For example, I ordered food in the evening and instructed the driver to come up in the notes. But the security guard came up to tell me that my food delivery was here instead of letting random people inside. Some improvements that the hostel could make to be exceptional: more information about the hostel's services (like laundry, food, check-out time, etc.) during the check-in or a board that lists everything they offer // things to do in Cebu. But whenever I asked for information, the staff was always really helpful with everything! I think it was one of the cleanest // comfortable hostels I've been in - so I'd def stay here again!
