The Hostelry: A Budget Friendly Hostel in Bacolod

As a traveler, I look for a budget friendly accommodation but will not sacrifice the clean and comfort. When we went to Bacolod, our accommodation is included in our tour package. It is called The Hostelry, I am not familiar with the place so I made further research just to make sure, I will get what I paid for.

The Hostelry is located along La Salle Avenue at Roli's Arcade building. It is conveniently situated near public transport, fast food chains, convenience store and etc.


A matrimonial room (double bed) was book for us because as we requested for a private separate room. The room is provided with  with linen, pillow, towel, and soap. It has television, air conditioner, hot and cold shower and lucky enough to get a spacious closet. 


What I love about the place

Its chic and colorful lobby gave the expression that the place provide good facilities and service. As I walked inside the room, I love how spacious and clean it was. The white sheets, one fuzzy blanket and two pillows complete its coziness. 

They provided cleaning service as they cleaned our room once we were out for our tour and we will get back to a nice and tidy room. 


The downside

I would consider the place perfect if they have extra dining table and chairs. Because when we were at The Hostelry, we bought to-go breakfast at the near fast food chain and we found it really hard to eat on the bed. 

No WiFi in the rooms. You have to go down in the lobby access internet.

There is no bidet. *a moment of silence* When I stayed in this place, I recognize the full worth of bidet. I only did number 2 once (TMI) when I stayed at The Hostelry because I anticipated that it would really difficult for me to do the deed because of lack of bidet. 

Here you go, I gave some thought about our stay.

I would highly recommend the place once you go to Bacolod especially when  you are travelling on a budget because they just don't have private rooms they also have shared rooms when you can  socialize with other travelers.

Bacolod City Travel Guide


Bacolod, the capital of Negros Occidental, notable for its MassKara Festival held during the third week of October and is known for being a relatively friendly city, as it bears the nickname "The City of Smiles". 


Bacolod City Travel Guide

This is my first domestic travel this 2019. What to do in Bacolod? People asked why I chose to travel in Bacolod for my birthday.

First, it was on sale. I got my round trip tickets for only around 400 php. Why not, coconut?! And mostly because Bacolod is not just an ordinary highly urbanized city, it offers you historical tourist destinations and welcomes you with an unforgettable meal like its Chicken Inasal.

Bacolod City Travel Guide

But Bacolod is not just for foodies, there are things to do in Bacolod where you can enjoy with your squad or even your family. Within an hour drive you can dip in waterfalls in Mambukal Mountain Resort, zip-lining in Campuestuhan Highland Resort and bask under the sun in Lakawon Island in Cadiz City. Be amazed on Talisay's The Ruins and satisfy your cravings in Calea Pastries & Coffee. These are just some of attractions and activities in making your Bacolod trip unforgettable.

How to get there?

By Air:

If you are from Luzon, you can choose from Clark International Airport or Manila International Airport. You can book your flights either with Philippine Airlines or Cebu Pacific and will cost you not more than 5,000 php for a round trip ticket.

The airport in Negros Occidental is situated at Silay City. It is only less than an hour from Bacolod City.

Public Transportation

It is really easy to roam around Negros Occidental. There are jeepneys and tricycle to take, however, if you are traveling as a group, it would be best to take the taxi or hire a van to make your trip more comfortable and swift.

Bacolod City Travel Guide


We are four in a group that's why we preferred getting a tour package for this trip instead of doing the tour by ourselves. We know that we will end up arguing where to go first or to go next.

The tour package is highly recommended. Kuya Ed, our tour guide is very accommodating. The tour was hassle-free and flexible because of the transport service. The hotel they booked for us was clean and comfortable.
