It's a quite pleasant place to stay. Clean and friendly staff.


Rooms on ground floor don't have windows and are a bit dingy. From what I saw, all the rooms are really small. Air con units are really noisy but were effective. WiFi didn't work in rooms. Staff helpful. Great location - Makati is a nice area, clean and safe by Manila standards. A few homeless kids and beggars outside but felt safe enough. Kitchen with fridge, microwave and hot water is handy. Supermarket right next door, lots of malls in the area. Not quite as good as the MNL in Boracay


can be pretty noisy in the night from the street and from the common room.


This is the best hostel I have ever been in. It's beautifully decorated and super clean. The staff go the extra mile. Great common room to meet loads of other travellers. This has to be the place to stay. The beds are comfortable with a charge point which is great and excellent free wifi. Free breakfast, coffee and tea. Love Mallan, Jerry, Eugene, Inchone, Ryan and Ray. Thanks for my time in Manila x


I love this hostel. It's clean, sociable and the staff are second to none. I loved it so much here, that I stayed at MNL Boracay too. Thank you!!

Love the place, it was my second time there


Overall Good hostel, staff were nice and location was right near the top of makati. FYI The room I was in which is next to the common room is very noisy.


Double room was claustrophobically small with no windows. BUT EVERYTHING ELSE WAS REALLY WONDERFUL, including decor, staff, facilities and atmosphere.


Great value for money, good location in Makati. Only complaint is that the common area is a little small.


A bit far from the airport. That should be more clear on the website, so people on layovers don't need to drive all the way into the city when they're only staying for a couple hours.


Nice common area with book exchange, and kitchen is open for common use. Beni's falafel nearby is a treat. Rooms are small (bottom bunk not big enough to sit up in) but lockers are spacious. Breakfast is simple and fine.


Best hostel to stay in Manila


A really great hostel in a great location with everything a traveller needs. Would definitely recommend it in Manila!


Only stayed for a short amount of time in between flights, but would defo stay again.
