4/10 Fair

The room was ok. But the Bathroom/Toilet was not. Water stays on the floor due to leakage from the bathroom and floor wasnt leveled. The mirror was dirty as if it wasnt cleaned for a while. The aircondition was full of dirt. I was disappointed as well that the location was not the same with what they have shown on the map in and they also said there that it is a 10 minute walk to SM but it wasnt. It actually 2km away from SM.

Fooled by the maps.
Once again i was fooled by hotels. It showed me 1 location on the map with, but when i got there it was nothing. Had to find the adress of the hostel and get another taxi there. Overall the hostel was clean.

Sojourn in Cebu
Entering the hostel is not that good. Reception area is far from the main door. And you might have to wait for the door to be opened by the staff as it is locked sometimes. Not all staffs are friendly and helpful. Some will help you with stuffs and some will just ignore you even if you're carrying two bags and one big box. I passed 3 staffs just sitting there at the reception area busy with their phones, they must be happy to have free wifi. And there are no available towels in the room, you have to request it. There is no telephone too to request for toilet paper if ever you'll run out of it. GG if you're in the top floor and need to go downstairs. And big problem, there's no water in the upper floor. You must secure rooms in the 1st-3rd floors. There are no lockers inside the room too. The location of the hotel is great. The price is relatively low too.

Decent hostel for a night or two
It's great if you need to go to the airport or do the visa extension on the BOI of Cebú. Really close from the shuttle to the airport (walking distance). The staff was very nice and helpful, there was ac on the room and the bunk beds were OK. Probably staying here again before taking the plane back in the cebu airport.

Friendly staff, good budget option for backpackers
Decent place for the budget traveler, though wifi rarely works well and there's usually no toilet paper in the restrooms, not water to flush. Super friendly and helpful staff, though, and they have aircon rooms! Cute decor and next door to a "mall" with good food (especially Tequi La La pulled pork tacos).
