The hostel is really nice and cozy. It has it's own comfortable atmosphere either you want to relax or party) They have a board with suggested tours (quite different every day) in a parlor so if you want to see smth and didn't decide yet what exactly it's very handy) The staff are amazing, eager to help you - they will show directions on the map, write it down and also if you are not quite fast with looking up and just lazy they will do the research for you. Thanks Shateau for wonderful days!
Nice, clean place with super helpful and friendly staff. Good place to start your journey in the Philippines because they will help you out with tons of info on traveling around the city and country.
Great, clean, friendly place to stay. Manila can be a challenge, but the tours organized by the staff are a great way to venture into the city and some surrounding locations. I just wish they offered more out-of-city tours. The breakfast each morning was a big help, as was the designated 'party spot' on the roof. Only two complaints: no laundry facilities, and some restaurant across the street playing music until late at night. But this is Manila: noise is to be expected.
ery friendly and helpful staff, clean environment , good social place , they have a good and large dining area and kitchen , the minus point is during my stay , the lift was broken , so I have to carry my luggage climb up to 4th storey…….
This was my favorite hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, Rolly took me mountain biking and to the gym and Chateau was like my mom away from home, always willing to offer advice. The breakfast makes this hostel great value because it is as good as you'll get in any hostel I've ever stayed at. Oatmeal, noodles, cereal, juices, coffee, tea and freshly baked bread with jams. Awesome atmosphere as well making it a fun and friendly place to meet new people.
This was our first experience in a hostel. Absolutely brilliant. The staff were fantastic and our room was much better than we ever expected.
The staff was very accommodating aside from trying to sell us a tour less than 5 minutes after arriving. Overall, the hostel was very clean (too much incense); however, the room was tiny (just large enough for one queen size mattress) with no window. Also, men and women both share the toilet/shower facilities, which didn't leave much for privacy (we might have overlooked this aspect if the room/bed had been ok). Also, be aware that there are night clubs near by that can be heard in your room.
Good location, super clean, nice mattress. Altogether not a bad choice.
The staff working at Melting Pot is outstanding and helpful with everything.
Pretty good variety of breakfast foods, compared to other places we've stayed. Weren't enough lockers when we arrived, so had to wait for someone to leave before we could lock up our valuables. Rooftop is great for a drink and view of the surrounding neighbourhood. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Brilliant staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. Nice location in an area with lots of restaurants and bars. Clean, cheap, free breakfast is good. After hearing so much bad about Manila it was nice to know a place like this existed!
The legendary OMP turned out the way everyone said, it's perfect valued for the money you pay, great location, nice rooms and living room, friendly and helpful staff who are always around, during my stay,OMP is more like a home to me other than a place to stay, the old manila tour is also a must-do if your time allows. I can never say enough nice words about this place:)I'll definitely stay here again if i revisit even only 4 dropping by and saying hi to dear Chateau:) Love from Kelly n girls:)
Staff was amazing, got alot af good advises for travelling.
Good to meet new people and perfect location in Makati. Our small room had no Window and the toilet in the room was not very useful but the shared toilets and showers were Ok. Staff is very nice and helpful and the atmosphere is very good. If you search for new friends and a nice community u should try omp.
Very friendly! The staff is awesome! I definitely recommend this hostel =)
Thank you SOOOO much for all of the incredible help and fun tours! Will stay again if in Manila... Also pass on my regards to the very beautiful Grace and thank her for the language lesson!
It was very clean and the staff helped me with directions and loading my phone card!

Absolutely great place! Friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. Nice rooms and facilities, all very clean and provided a really good breakfast. Staff always on hand to help and answer questions and the atmosphere of the place meant I was able to make some really good friends there.
One of the best hostels i've stayed in while backpacking. would definitely stay again. Great location, taxis never had trouble finding it unlike other hostels I stayed in in manila. Lots of fellow backpackers staying too. Very friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
