The staff here are fantastic and help you with whatever you need or get to wherever you need to go. The atmosphere is amazing. Its a great place to hang out and meet other backpackers.


Great atmosphere, fun and helpful staff. Good location. Overall best hostel in Manila.


no keys for the dorms, no hot water in the showers. food is really basic and not cheap.


Pink Manila hostel was filthy. The floors in the bathroom and shower were so dirty you didn't want to enter them. Have to pay for a towel. Breakfast was a shared loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butterbutter, really disgusting. The couch in the reception area was so dirty it should be burned. Barely a step up from sleeping in the street and this place got a favorable rating.

There was a cum stain and some hair on my bed so they obviously hadn't changed the sheets. Gross. Other than that it was a good hostel. Great place if you want to meet people and go out partying in manilla.


Brilliant hostel for meeting fellow backpackers. Also, a bit of a party hostel at times. Staff are excellent and very knowledgeable of most of the country. Only criticism is the location - no one seems to know where it is. Jeepneys took me too far, and taxis struggled to find it at the best of times. Wouldn't let it put you off a stay here, though.


Staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. Easy going hostel very social atmosphere and easy to meet people. Security is good, but better lockers in the room would be an added bonus.

The place has a nice terrace, but lacks cleanliness. I could not use the swimming pool because it was dirty ( during the 3 days I stayed there, I saw a playing card in the botton of the swimming pool). There was not hot water in my bathroom.


The place is quirky and sociable so good for meeting new people. The guy on reception who checked me in spent most of the time on his phone, he showed me to my bed but not around the hostel, to the bathrooms, the lockers or explain there was breakfast and wifi. Also the lights in the dorm didn't work. So the staff could be a bit more welcoming but the hostel is still good, probably just because it has a great chill out area and fun atmosphere.


This is one of the best of I've ever stayed in! Definitely check out their roof top. This hostel definitely has a character :) I want to come back to Manila just because of this hostel. Amazing atmosphere!


We had a great stay here! Staff are super helpful and nice, we booked dorm rooms and private, both clean and comfortable, ideal for backpackers and travellers! The lounge/terrace has a great view of the city and very sociable. Would definitely recommend this hostel


The pictures look excellent, but they are outdated pictures. The hot tub doesnt work and WiFi is real crappy. If someone get on and streams video or audio, you wont be able to get on. Its an average hostel, they need to paint and clean the roof and get some new furniture. Also get hot water in all the bathrooms.


The Hostel is quiete good. Is really difficult to locate the hostel. The taxi driver asked many people for help in the way. They should put signals showing where the hostel is. The swimming pool doesnt look clean, as such, not inviting to jump in it. With a bit of investment they can make this a very nice hostel. Staff is helpful.

During a week of travel through the Philippines and 4 different hostels this was the least attractive one. Many of the beds were in poor condition, the pillow was a block of foam (or rock of foam), and the sink was blocked. Though it is more or less the same everywhere in the Philippines, there was no hot water. The what looked like a swimming pool was more of a scum-filled pond. Its only redeeming feature was a rather good atmosphere.


This is a good hostel, especially if you want to meet people and have a party in Manila. The staff are friendly, the place is pretty cool in my opinion. Scott Gregory, England


I absolutely loved staying at the pink Manila while I was staying in the city. It doesn't look like much from the street but as soon as the elevator doors open on the fifth floor, you're greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Make sure you go straight to the roof after you drop your bags to see a nice view of the city around. Lots of food within walking distance and it's easy to catch a cab down the street to go out (makati is a nice place to go out in). Excellent hostel.


Hostel is fine. However, I think it would be great for meeting other travelers, and there's a nice bar/swimming pool/pool table common area where people were hanging out all night. The area isn't the greatest, and it took a long time to get to from the airport in rush-hour Manila traffic. Staff was slightly less helpful than I like -- insinuating our flights were cancelled (they weren't!) and giving vague directions for food instead of recommending a place like I asked.


Best atmosphere of any hostel I've stayed in.
