Not sure that the Lonely Planet were playing at, making this their "Top Pick" but Kukuk's Nest is absolutely vile.

It's cheap - yes, but there is much better accommodation available for less in Cebu.

The rooms are dark - probably for the best as they are completely filthy and infested. No mosquito nets, insects everywhere, rat infestation (one of the little gits chewed a hole through my backpack!), sheets are dirty and have holes chewed in them. The shared bathroom is filthy and falling apart, oh, and there's no running water in the mornings either. And the wifi doesn't work either (although admittedly the other problems took my mind off the lack of wifi)

For an experience like this I'd expect to pay 100 pesos per night, not 400. It's an absolute joke. My skin's crawling just thinking about the place. There are plenty of other options out there, much nicer and cheaper also. Do yourself a favour and stay far far away from this sh1thole. ...

Well it is so hard to believe we are in the Philippines, and have been for almost three weeks already. It has been a whirlwind of activity. Last week was our first full week and ministry week. We split our team of about 30 students and half a dozen staff into two groups. The musical people stayed in the city and partnered with a small local House of Prayer, who with only about 6 staff were running about eight hours a day and about six hours of worship everyday. ...

... able to photograph the exterior but will try and make it back. The inside, although simple was very impressive. The traditional construction of catholic churches was not as apparent here. From a distance, the back wall did not seem recessed as much. It housed several rows of statues of Saints unlike the usual single Crucifix or Virgin Mary. Very interesting and different from what I have seen elsewhere. It reminded me a little of ...

... often dart away into a hairpin without any warning, and with stories of coastal road deaths ringing in my ears, I wasn't in the mindset to drive any other way than what I felt comfortable with.

Despite the stressful drive, we arrive at the Tarsier Sanctuary about 40 minutes from the city. Tarsiers are the third smallest primate in the world with huge eyes, elongated limbs and fingers give them a gremlin like appearance. I still can't decide if they're incredibly cute, ...

Save your money and watch traffic lights change instead.

... Cebuano, ready for our activity. We headed off with Maam Portia and Dexter in the little Cebu City DSWS minicab, which is bright white, logoed and teeny tiny. Hopped off near the oldest bakery in Cebu City, which Dexter used to frequent as a child, bought some pain de sal and then picked our way through street vendors, street families, horse and carts, puddles and rubbished that surrounded Manileno Bakeshop. The neighbourhood is much poorer than the central Cebu City area, which can be ...
