Very warm and welcoming, i wanted to stay longer! tours to taal volcano and free city tour, good breakfast and we were right across from the night market! will come back :)
Very safe + convenient location. The area outside is safeguarded by police. You can safely get your cash at various ATM in a shopping mall across the street, go to shops, cafes, restaurants. Staff is very helpful, also with onward travel. Great place to meet other travellers. Fantastic free Old Manila Tour. Easy way to see Manila with other travellers in the hostel. Nice guide. Dorms good value. Pleasant beds with curtains. Lockers. Clean. Only "minus" the street noise with loud music till 1 am.
The staff really make this the place to stay in Manila. We loved the free walking tour and bar crawl, there is always a fun atmosphere in the common areas and tips galore are given for onward travel in the Philippines. Hostelworld score is no accident, keep up the good work OMP

They could have a place to leave the bags in case of an arrival before checkin time or departure after checkout time (they ask you to leave in the living room, even with cameras, i did not feel so safe). Location is OK, with a mart and malls around. Great staff and free tour (a must do!). Very Clean! There was an power outlet near my bed, but majority of the beds did not, so people had to charge in the living room. The elevator was broken at the time I was there, and it is on 4th floor!
Great place to stay with awesome staff! The only reason I gave a lower score for cleanliness is because the 6 bed dorm had a funny smell, but the four bed dorm was wonderful!
Very well managed. Good place for meeting people.
Very helpful staff, great advice for getting around the city and using the public transportation system.

OMP was pretty sweet. Met the greatest people during my stay there. The location was close to everything except you're paying expensive Makati prices for food etc. DO NOT pay more than 200 Php to go from the airport. Those taxi drivers are retarded.
Stayed @ OMP for 1 night & was welcomed by very friendly hosts. I had a private room with comfortable bed /ensuite and air conditioning which was great to beat the humidity in Manila. Yellow metered cab to OMP took only 40 mins from MHL Intl Airprt. Noise outside was fairly loud but was expected & ear plugs helped to negate it. Overall a very pleasant stay as hosts invited a group of us out to a reggae night which made it a very social night. Highly recommended as would stay here again. Thxu
The place doesn't take credit card and in the Currency Exchange close to the Hostel is a rip off, i ended up paying extra 5 dollars for this miss understanding. Regarding the room, when i booked i requested a private with two separate beds, but they don'e have that but they didn't communicate with mi regarding my request, so i find out this once i arrived there, after that i tell the girl to give me a mattress, and the girl a front didnt look for it , i had to ask one of the guys for this.

The tour they offered was amazing ..thank you
Great hostel in Makati, great breakfast... Twice a week they serve delicious pancakes and eggs, other mornings are good too. Organise a free tour of the old, which was really fun. Recommended hostel in a safe part of the city. Also close to shopping malls and a night market with a live band each night across the road.
Very nice hostel, Staff very friendly and helpfull, good location, definetly I will go again there when I come back to Manila.
OMP is a great place to stay in Manila. the staff are helpful and friendly and the location in Makati is really good! there's a market directly across the street with cheap food and free entertainment most days of the week as well. Definitely a great place to stay!
Place is nice and the people are amazing. Amazing night tour guide, Denz who partied with us! Only downside is that the hostel is more of a 'boutique hostel', with a small max person capacity. I got the feeling that there were only about 10 rooms, including 3 private rooms. Amazing free breakfast
The elevator was under repairment, so you have to carry the luggage upstairs by yourself. But luckily the ppl there are all very helpful if they are around. The price is good for this facility and breakfast. Staffs are helpful. Special thanks to the lady who gave me direction to take Jeepeny and LRT by myself. That was an unforgettable experience.
My 3rd time here at this hostel. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Free daily day tours and hostel arranged night time activities. This is a clean, cozy and welcoming place. There are lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Colllldddd Showers. Good staff. Tours arranged. Good location near night market. Good for one or two nights.
