Backpackers choice of accommodation now especially the “budgetarian” travelers most preferred to stay in a hostel.

Location wise – very accessible via public vehicle/commute. The hostel is just walking distance from Puregold Grocery and SM Savemore. There are lots of restaurants and establishments around the hostel like Mang Inasal, Mercury, Mini Stop, Metrobank, Laundry Shop, Beauty Salon.
Because the hostel is nearby and just a few meters away from the main road, during rush hour, you can hear the honks of the cars but that doesn’t bother me much.
