I am glad I came across Wayfarer Pension House website. I had a little chat with the friendly staffs. Its a family-owned business and it comes with home-quality food. In fact, I find the prices more affordable than it should be, every food I ordered was never compromised in its quality. I am taking the time to comment as I...

Stayed here for a night when we came from Bislig and another night after coming from Siargao. It was a lovely experience from the food and the accommodation. It didn't feel like a pension house. Our room during our second time even had a rain shower head. I loved the food especially the grilled tuna and the chocolate overload cake...

Expectation was down to minimum since we are only paying P900. I was impressed with their customer service. I filled up their form and submitted online a day before arrival, the next day someone called me - I thought they were going to ask for a deposit but they just wanted a confirmation. When we arrived, room was ready! The...

Got the small room which is good for four people but they allowed me to rent it for 500 pesos only. Stayed here for over night. They have a restaurant at the ground floor. The place is accessible and close to the bus terminal and the city proper.

I am back in the hotel again! It's always a pleasure to write reviews for this establishment. I won't make this review long as my flight is due in the next 4 hours. Everyone is pleasant, services are kept well, FOOD is always delightful and enjoyable-- ribs and burgers never let me down! To be quite honest, this is the...

the room was small but good enough for two. Rate during our stay was Php 900/night for two persons excluding breakfast. If you're planning to buy Durian fruit, they are not allowing the fruit to be taken inside your room because of the smell. The pension house is located along the highway where tricycles are available. They have a restaurant...

We stayed at Wayfarer for one night before our family reunion. The room was very small, as well as the bathroom. It was very hard to navigate in there. That being said, the price we paid was well worth the cost! The staff were great, and the restaurant attached was also good.

Staff were courteous, gentle and very helpful. They endeavor as much as they can to help their customers in ways they can especially in transportation, as transportation in Butuan could be difficult without knowledge on the specific routes public vehicles take on a regular basis. What can I say, apart from the staff, it's the food that ultimately caught my...

Cons : Cockroaches came out of the aircon vent . Water pressure is low and the water has a rusty and metallic smell. Lights are dimmer than when we stayed here several years ago. No complimentary bottled water. Few outlets for charging gadgets

“Ask reception for 1st floor rooms, wifi signal is stronger. If transport is difficult, query staff as they are more than happy to help.”
