We stayed in this Hostel for 3 days/ 2 nights.,(January 12-14, 2017) and I will agree with all the other good comments here... Mayon Backpackers Hostel is in a good location (near the airport + walking distance to known restaurant, banks & grocery store), clean accommodation with free breakfast (although its better if you can include the coffee and have...

Cool place with a very friendly vibe. Great to meet new people. Staff are helpful. Beware of the fan rooms, they are like prisons. The 2 extra dollars for air con are totally worth it. Would recommend and come back.

The Backpacker itself is a good place, good location, good staff and one of the cleanest I've seen in the Philippines. Just avoid the cheap room. The room has no windows or AC, the only exhaust fan in the room is weak and works only when the lights are on. Believe me, you will wake up in a sauna.

If you're in a tight budget and you're with the group this place is perfect for you. Small room but you're just going to sleep there anyway because most of the time you're outside exploring the beauty of Bicol. There are beds for each family members or friends. You can cook there so it would save you money. Though it's...

Good rooftop but small rooms and outside of town. Not a big inconvenience though because there are many jeepneys to get you there. The staff is also nice altogether. The only problem is the very small rooms, it gets really stuffy in there

“Please fix the wifi issue with your 2nd building. It's a bit inconvenient and honestly unfair to rent the larger rooms and then end up not having any wifi because only the dorm building has access to it. Also, hot showers would be nice. I believe people would be willing to pay more just for that.”
