The bus arrived after 3 hours vs. the stated departure time. We reached Manila after 16hrs of travel. The price we paid is not worth it. The bus is small and not that clean. The kids seated at our backs are very nosiy

Seats are good, clean bus but the driver and conductors are not so pleasing like they got their own house just sleeping like they don't have any passengers looking at them.
