Upon arrival there were no tours available for the next day but the staff quickly informed me when one became available. I joined another 2 guests touring for half a day (490 php) around island...

On the plus side the location of this accommodation is definitely great. Right in the center of town. Rooms are quite small but the rates are affordable. The aircon was new and worked well. There was free wi-fi but it was so slooooow. This establishment is quite old though and in need of some repairs and renovation. It looked like...

This hotel is definitely one of the cheapest places to stay in in Virac, Catanduanes. We (my 2 sisters and I) got a family deluxe room, which had a bunk bed and 2 single beds for around 1,200/night. A/C, bathroom (toilet and faucet as shower) were also available. They serve meals upon prior request. The Silog's tasted great, but I...

Location - very good, in the city center and transportation is not a problem. The tricycle drivers know the location of the pension house very well. Staff - very friendly and helpful. Facilities - the rooms were simple and basic -> The aircondition works well, TV signal sometimes was not good, the speed of the internet was not fast enough.

Walking distance from virac town centre the rooms vary in size and comfort levels but they all look cosy . This ensures a decent mattress on some beds unlike most of other nearby hotels with sponges for mattresses on all beds. Staff are friendly and cheerful and it's very laid back. Nice breakfast in the cafe and at a budget...

Nice quiet hotel with friendly staff who will help if needed. Rooms are pleasant but could do with a spruce up. No telephone in room to call room service as this was located in the corridor. Pricing is affordable but the free breakfast is small.
