Traveled with a group. Just perfect for an overnight or long stay. perfect location. great view of Mayon volcano. Not that far from city center and the airport. Great view while having nice chit chats at the rooftop. Highly recommended for a frequent traveller who would just explore the city then sleep!

The place is very near the bank, the cityhall, the cathedral, etc. Also, it is near the main road were almost all the jeepneys going to different places passes by. Lastly, a very nice place to rest without anything to worry. They also offer a fast wifi connection or if you don't have a gadget, you can use their computer...

Stayed two nights here in March 2017. Great location, close to Legazpi's San Gregorio Cathedral. The hostel is spotless: everywhere including the reception, the shared kitchen-area and the upstairs dining room were all immaculately clean as was my (private) room. One criticism would be the included breakfast: it was a bit disappointing, you have to provide your own tea/coffee. Free...

Legazpi lacks backpacker-budget accommodation, but luckily there is Mayon Bsckpackers Hostel! As we were in Legazpi during the height of peak season, it was quite crowded. Initially me and my sister were put in a non-aircon and extremely stuffy room. That first night there were some beds in one of the aircon room available. This was great! Good temperature. Matrasses...

Hotel is near the main road enough to have a good sleep and be near the highway. Near BPI, near convenience stores and has a First Colonial Restaurant nearby. Now, that's strategic. Facilities are clean and well maintained. Wifi is super fast which is fantastic!

the hostel was able to provide us with services we need most, from room amenities to transportation to and from our event venue. The staff were so accommodating that even when we stayed late preparing for the defense presentation, they're available to provide us assistance without interfering with our work. The mess hall and the kitchen became our prep hall....

For a first timer in Albay, I had an amazing experience to the awesome place. The hostel adds spice to our stay because of its very cozy and nice ambiance. The crews are also very accommodating. Hoping for the next trip! We'll be surely staying on your hostel.
