Cebu – Fancy life in a treehouse? How about spending a few days in a Philippine jungle? I’m not totally opposed to it. Along as it comes with my personal butler! Well true believers you too can experience a total ecological lifestyle and the uber-affordable Elicon House here in the heart of Cebu. From its one and only corporate brochure:...

I stayed for 4 days here and i really liked it, even though i found 2 small cockroaches in my room, but this is because they don't use chemicals to fumigate, this is an eco friendly hostel. AC works super good i had to turn it off in the middle of the night because i was freezing set it at...

This property is a short walking distance to Colon Street. I booked a single but was given a triple room. The room was clean with attached bathroom, towel, aircon, tv...etc. Do take note that their blanket is only a thin bedsheet, therefore you need to control the tempreture of your aircon. Wifi is only available at the lobby and there...

I commend this hotel for being eco-friendly and their prize is affordable. Their room is spacious, comfortable but no hot shower, and near the city proper. HOWEVER, what turned me off is that we saw BIG COCKROACHES in the room which I think is Ironic for an eco-friendly establishment.

Its a small but cozy hotel. Affordable rates about 1100pesos per night for 3 persons. The location is near the south bus station which is very ideal for travelers going to oslob (1st trip is 3am), and 15 minutes to the oceanjet ferry port if you're plannig to go bohol..friendly staff... I would give 5 stars if they have a...

Location : Chosen by many transients as it is close to the south bus terminal which i s a kilometer away. The neighborhood maybe noisy on day and early evenings but enough for you to have a night's sleep. Not recommended to roam around the neighborhood at late evenings. Elicon however has its own security guard so you will feel...

All in all very good for the price. Even the in house restaurant had a small but reasonable priced menu. Only issue was the lady who worked the night shift at reception. I had an early check in at 1.30 pm and my girlfriend who is a local Filipina joined me at 6.40pm I asked the lady at the desk...

Stayed here for 3 nights before heading to Malaspascua Island. Very central location...easily accessible to public transportation (both Junquera and Del Rosario Streets are busy thoroughfares in downtown Cebu) and good restaurants. No hot water, but $550PHP per night for 1 person. UNBEATABLE for a no-frills, yet comfortable stay. Staff is extra friendly.

Stay there for a week, the room was great, although there is an ongoing renovation, my smelled paint, but its bearable once the aircondition is on. For the whole week, my bed sheets and towel had not been replaced. There is water at the lobby always. Other than that, my stay is uneventful and i would stay again if given...

My review is in the context that this is a backpackers and no frills hostel which is eco-friendly. The room has its own bathroom but no hot water. Only the rooms are air-conditioned. Only a small bar of soap is provided. The bed is comfortable. Beddings are clean but getting a flannel blanket has an extra charge. Towels are changed...
