I booked this place online before arriving in Cebu, sight unseen. Very friendly. I got in at Oh Dark Hundred, leaving Hong Kong on a flight to Cebu overnight.
Even through Checking wasn't until 2pm, Checkout for the rooms being 12 noon and my room for the night being still occupied when I rolled up at 7am, I was able to check my suitcase into their secure storeroom and go out on the streets and hoof it around until noon and then check in early.
During my stay I found the staff friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the air conditioning was a godsend.
I would happily reccommend this to any other travellers to Ceby City.

... it not being my turn with the drink either, I had to steal a gulp of beer from Chris to help get the thought out of my mind.

How to get to Cebu?
Cebu was located at the south ...
... to go to the legendary 7eleven for pre-drinks. We all bought a beer and sat down in the shop getting to know each other. We then got told to leave the shop because we weren't allowed to drink the beers inside. The security guard told us that we can use the shops tables and chairs outside. We had a great laugh out here. We were all ripping the **** out of each other just like Brits do. All around us was boy racers who was blasting the tunes out in the petrol station. Everyone was ...
... Met a cool 14 year old girl who just dropped out of school because she couldn't pay for it and had her head shaved. Philippines hate being shamed and in high spirits the girl Christine told us her parents shaved her head because she missed her curfew by seven hours because she was out 'dancing and singing' in the streets. I guess they don't like grounding their children here, just give them a buzz cut.
Next we met up with a guy named pastor Davis ...
... way through the haircut and didn’t really fill Sam with confidence. Luckily, it looked really nice in the end. The hair dresser said it was a Jennifer Aniston cut!! We had dinner at a little street café where we’d eaten the first night as well and had the same 'chicken’ kebabs both times. It didn’t look or taste like chicken, and we’re fairly certain it wasn’t, but it was cheap and very tasty.
