I had my dinner here last night and it looks pretty cool outside because of its funky style. The moment I entered, I found out that the design and its lightning is quite dark and weird. The artistry was too much and its very disgusting in the eye. For the food, it was definitely cheap and tastes good. There were...

I don't know why this place was mentioned in the Lonely Planet, it's a dump... the bathroom and toilet were disgusting, the hot water didn't work if someone downstairs was using a tap, the staff weren't friendly, the rooms weren't clean, I saw a rat in my room at night... the only good point was that downstairs is a bar...

I spent one night at Kukuk's and as a budget place, I don't expect much. The LP guide totally overhypes the place...I won't say it's horrible, but overall it's a pretty dingy place. Unfortunately if you are in Cebu City you made a wrong turn somewhere in the first place....as I found it to be one of the least appealing...

My husband and I were travelling around the Philippines and needed to spend the night in Cebu to do some shopping for dive equipment en-route to a conservation project. We stayed here on recommendation from the Lonely Planet guide. BIG MISTAKE! We had a twin room. It was dirty, moquitos everywhere but no place to hang a net. The bathroom...

I was a bit pushed for time and trusted Lonely Planet on this one instead of reading reviews. Now I wish I had done! I'm actually here now, it's 5am and I can't sleep because I keep getting bitten by bed bugs. The sheets are covered in cigarette burns and stains. The shared bathrooms are absolutely disgusting. Only positives, the...

Lonely planet is wrong!!! Room was big but really dark and dingy... It was like being in an attic with loads of random furniture in it and was really loud with the traffic from highway outside and the bar downstairs. The bar had good vibe... But everytime we got the bill they manage to "mistakenly" add in some extra items...

A bit run down and disorganised. However, the ambiance of the café and resto is quite nice. First off, we had made a reservation previously, which had been confirmed only 2 days before arrival, as we were arriving quite late. When we arrived, they had absolutely no record of our reservation and were fully booked. We decided to give it...
