Inspired from Travel

In her travels, Ileana appreciated the hostel style of accommodation where a “community” atmosphere was being encouraged. Because of this inspiration, we now have a world-class, well-appointed Bacolod hostel. It has comfortable accommodations, a homey feel, and competent staff. Plus, you have the trusted Bacolod restaurant Roli’s Cafe beside your living room (*happiness).
