      Can be improved”

      the location, friendly staff, room size

      the location of this pension house is perfect. It is just a walking distance from sm bacolod, a few steps away from the bacolod central market and public plaza, and is easily accessible anywhere since most jeeps pass along the public plaza. I also appreciate the friendliness of the staff for accommodating my requests. However this pension house can easily be popular if only they repair and maintain their bathrooms! The one in my room stinks. Other than that I had no other major complaints, the airconditioner works and the bed is comfortable enough. For the price I paid for a 2 day stay, I am satisfied. But again to to the owners, for more customers and better reviews, please take care of your bathrooms.

      We are seasoned travellers and my missus was born in Bacolod. The building has seen better days and lacks maintenance. Having said this, it is dirt cheap and suited us because it is bang in the middle of town, walking distance to the market and SM. Shower/toilet and power all worked. If you are used to the Hilton or Marriott this place is not for you but if a backpacker its spot on. Welcome to real life in Philippines!

      the owner and the staffs are very accommodating, it is a budget friendy hotel, accessible to all

      it is a last minute booking and we are looking a budget friendly hotel or inn because will be staying for a week and i found this hotel, because of the early arrival of our flight we have to check in early to take some rest, good thing they have a room available but they have to charge us 200 for the early check in, we were surprised on our room it is not what we expect it needs a lot of improvements especially the c.r its rusty and a lot of dirty stains on the flooring and the wall, it is like what you pay is what you get but if your in a tight budget and all the hotel and pension houses are fully booked you have no choice but to deal with it, their staff are very helpful and accommodating, accessible to all... this hotel needs a lot of improvement on their facilities, don't believed on the photos because it might be edited have some time to read a review, if this hotel will be renovated and improve their facilities especially the rooms i can recommend it for the future stay.. change for the better.. thank you

      Not Terrible for the Price”

      The Good - The price is cheap for a family. - The location is good, in the middle of downtown and within walking distance of many places we wanted to go. - The rooms looked just like the photos and were very spacious - Flat screen TV (smaller one), with lots of channels including many movie channels. - The eatery downstairs had the best food I've had at a Carenderia. I'll probably stay here when I come back again with my family as I'd rather save money and have the issues below. The Bad - The elevator doesn't work (I think never will). - Rooms are on the 4th floor. - The TV speaker made bad noises when any bass went through it making many movies and shows very hard to watch as sometimes the distortion was so bad you can't hear the words. The Ugly - We found cock roaches in our bed every time we came back to the room. - The building is infested with large rats. I saw ALOT of large rats downtown, and I think all the cheaper hotels downtown have the same problem. Also, we only saw rats in the hallways outside the hotel and the stairs for the building (none in the hotel part of the building). - The toilet seat was ripped apart and pokes your but while sitting on it. But, it had a toilet seat (some cheaper places don't, hehehe). The room itself looked clean, and not at all the worst place I've stayed (but I've stayed at some BAD places before).
