May stay was going well until I could not sleep in the middle of the night due to rats/mice on the roof of Room 1. This is the dorm ensuite room. I would not recommend staying in this room as the rats and mice seem to have taken a liking to the roof of this room. Also this room has a window that is exposed to the street. Often you have musicians and people talking there into the early hours of the morning.


Pretty decent hostel for Manila. A little pricey given that rooms have no windows, but otherwise good value for money. If the staff cared a little more it would have made it even better


I really liked this hostel, it was in a good location my room was comfortable with air conditioning, the staff were nice. The facilities weren't fantastic but certainly good enough and very clean.


Mnl hostel was clean and staffs are kind enough.

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.
