This is hostel is really good, its clean, well, kept, friendly staff, working aircon, sheets changed every day and the staff are really good also i asked them loads of things from where to go, how to get there and how to eat a new fruit. There isn't a kitchen though, but there is a good breakfast which you can buy each morning. The only thing i would say that isn't the hostels fault is that cebu isn't really worth seeing, the cities run down and like manila just not that great to stay in. But if you need to stay in cebu and a backpacker/on a budget then this is the place
