    Exceptional”

    I was greeted with smiles as I enter the hostel. Appreciated the staffs who helped us to get into the room. It feels so homy and diversed. I love how welcoming they are. Their staffs are so polite and all smiles always. They have a gym! In terms of cleanliness, I would say 5/5. There were cleaners round the clock just to maintain the beauty of the hostel. It’s quite and away from the hustle and bustle of General Luna but it is just a motorbike away if you rent one to get into shops, bars, restos and coffee shops. See you again, Ilakai!
