        Always Great with 498!”

        I go here often twice to thrice a month, and it never fails to meet value-for-money not to mention ease in checking in and out. The only thing I would suggest, is that they finally accept Credit Cards within the establishment that does not have requirement minimum charge of at least P5000. This is for convenience. Also, some airconditioning units may need to be upgraded due to the wear and tear. Apart from that, still a place to be.

        THE ROOM IS A BIG TRASH! THIS HOSTEL IS A BIG TRASH. SUCH A WASTE OF TIME MOST ESPECIALLY SUCH A WASTE OF MONEY. YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO EXPERIENCE WHAT I HAVE JUST EXPERIENCED. YOU WILL BE DECEIVED BY THE PHOTOS SHOWING EACH ROOM WHEN ALL THE ROOMS ARE THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE. Where did they get their guts to inquire in agoda and demand for something extravagant when their place is really junk??? All I wanted was a nice, comfortable and peaceful place to spend the night BUT IT WAS THE EXACT COMPLETE OPPOSITE. First it wasnt nice at all, it was totally dirty and unhygienic. It wasnt comfortable at all because of the beddings and because of how small the room is. Lastly, IT WASNT REALLY PEACEFUL. The place was located in a very sketchy place. I could go on ranting about this trash hostel but Ive wasted so much time already for this place. I have already bought the room because I really thought it was just something the same as the pictures given. But IT REALLY WASNT. It was a big trash!

        Inexpensive room rates so expect also an awful services. Their staff/front desk are not friendly. I booked reservation thru online-agoda so I expect when we arrived, assigned room are already prepared. Check in time was 2pm we arrived at 6pm. But we are just asked to wait without explaining why. We waited for more than an hour, exhausted! They assist first the guest who came in late, than us. Their bed has bedbugs. Terrible! We ordered food, they said took only 5 mins.but food arrived almost an hour. I don't recommend Rooms498 to friends. Better get a pricey room, atleast you're satisfied on your stay.

        I wouldn't stay here again unless necessary.”

        Our dog was confined at the Vet Hospital nearby and there wasn't any other nearer accommodation. At slightly over a thousand pesos, you get a bare room with only a cheap bed + a toilet + an old but functioning Aircon. No toiletries, not even a towel nor soap nor toilet paper. You have to buy all those at the ground floor. This is a "hotel" on an old renovated bldg at a poor neighborhood.

        I was aware it was a budget hotel but I was a very bad experience for us. I am with my parents senior citizens & shower heater is not working, aircon is very low, no towels we have to go down and ask for 6x, electricity sockets not working we can’t charge our mobiles. TV channels are not working too..... I can leave in a mountain with no electricity but this hotel not worth to it’s very affordable price.

        We didn't get the service we paid for. When we arrived, there were no blankets, pillow covers in the room. I and my friends were even the ones who had to put the bed cover, pillow cover and cleaned the room. So disappointing.

        Strong stench of garbage, lots of cockroaches, walls and floors dirty”

        Lots of cockroaches inside the room, sink and bathroom. The stench of rotten meat at the storage area of the lobby as claimed by their security guard can still be felt up to the topmost floors. Walkways, walls very dirty.
