I really have mixed feelings about this place... The staff and the guests are realy great and we really had a good time here. But we expected more with all the good reviews here and Tripadvisor. The reason we booked was the pool. It was so dirty tho that we didn't feel like swimming anymore. I heard they cleaned it after our stay, but thats a bit to late for us. Shower and Toilets are really poor as well... No doors, just a flag and curtain, so everybody can just walk in.

전체적으로 분위기는 좋습니다 다만 조용한거 좋아하시면 힘들수있어요 도미토리치고 매일 청소도 해주고 .. 전 벌레본적은 없습니다 한국인들이 많이오는곳이 아닌지라 영어를 잘 못하는 저로서는 부담이었지만 라운지에서 가만히만 있어도 다들 말걸어주는 분위기라서 좋았던 거같아요 스텝들도 친절했고요 다만 홈페이지에나와있는 주간스케쥴은 상황에따라 할때도있고 안할때도있으니 참고하시고요, 숩소가 5층부터 옥상까지 있고, 1층은 쇠철창으로입구가 만들어진 헬스클럽 같은곳 으로되어있으니(우리나라 헬스 클럽생각하시면 안되요 ㅋ 그냥 1층에운동기구있다고보시면될듯) 찾을때 헤메지마세요~^^

Great social atmosphere, very easy to meet fellow travellers here. Not a boring place. They sell beer at a reasonable price too. Around a 10min walk from the LRT/Metro station and close to restaurants, banks, 24hr stores, and market. The staff especially Jet is very friendly!

I guess this hostel is the only on witch has pool inside. always able to use it and opening pool party with other guests. not far from few famous areas, easy to go there like SM mall, Malate. workers are so friendly so even u can here by your self like me, it could be nice to be close with other people. i will be here again after visiting other place for sure.

Great, unique place with pool, open roof, pool table, lots of room, super staff, A/C in all but fan room 10 to 10, 8-bed rooms have four lockers, free coffee and toast in morning. Very easy to meet people here. 16-bed fan room has good enough breeze to make A/C unnecessary. Close to metro.

The friendliest staff you could possibly meet! Ended up staying an extra night and booked another night for when we have a layover in April. Great place to lounge and meet amazing people from around the world. Bean bag chairs for lounging, pool table, and swimming pool. Always a nice breeze as it's on top of a building. The rooms are cleaned everyday and the beds are comfortable. Only complaint is there are only cold showers but other than that it's a great spot to stay!

New Manager is taking many steps to assure a great vibe & stepped up customer services. Food was excellent prepared by staff-'specially the Pizzas! Great Cat named Jumper, & his whining drowns out that of some guests-kinda nice. Pool is perfect, 2 roof tops for sunning & moonlight rants/parties/and lets not forget, RUSSIAN OFF THE ROOF GIRL TOSSING-NEW EVENT at this years SUMMER Olympic games-those guys were thrown out immediately, but were to drunk to realize it:) Great blended fruit drinks...

The main thing that caught my attention was the manager and staffs interaction and assistance with fellow travellers, the worst part is saying goodbye to your new family in Manila. The rooms are very tidy and the facilities are excellent , the common area has to be the best I have come across and it is very relaxing having a few drinks chatting with other travellers. I am recommending pink Manila to everyone I know who will be travelling to Manila.

You've never stayed in a place like this! Multileveled; open roof hammocks; open air pool; close to metro, cheap restaurants, laundromat, barber; friendly competent staff. Free breakfast. They store your heavy stuff while you go on a trip. I stayed in the 16-bed dorm room which is on the 7th floor. It gets a good breeze up there and fans are all that's necessary. No freezing air conditioners like in so many places.

It's a nice place. The roof terrasse with swinmming pool it's great. It's no too far from the main road.

pink manila hostel is the best hostel in manila, and iv'e stayed in a few… if you are traveling by your self or in a small group it is definitely the best. the staff is super friendly, there is a swimming pool, the location is great (although a bit hard to find at first). thanks to 'pink' me and my friends actually enjoyed our stay in the city that is usually not the backpackers favorite. i ended up coming back 3 more times.

No privacy for the toilet and shower, just a curtain covering the doorway. Bed railings were very squeaky. On the plus side: staff were friendly, location is good, and there's a pool!! ^^

Loved this place. Staff were awesome. The bar, lounge and pool were always fun to hangout in. Food was always fresh and nice, also they let you use the kitchen and cook your own meals if you would rather bring your own in.

I could not have been happier with how helpful the staff were. After some booking problems through Hostelworld, they contacted me directly to apologize and emailed me again when guests cancelled to offer me a room, knowing I was stranded at the airport in Kalibo. The pink lights on the top of the building when I arrived after dark confirmed I was in the right spot! The pool was a sweet bonus to have in the city, and the room was comfortable with the a/c a saving grace from Manila's humidity.

I've never stayed at a hostel with such little security (no security?). If you would like to stay somewhere with a lock on your door, find another hostel.

Dude there is a security guy outside our building with a shotgun, literally. what more do you need? Sorry for the wicked hangover from the pubcrawl. Seems like we're always the ones the blame.

Generally a very good place to stay in Manila, the swimming pool is a great plus that not so many hostel can boast having. Great view from the rooftop location. Some might say the location is not central, but after several days I don't even know where is the center of Manila... Only drawback: the internet is slow to the point of being useless (that is, on my device at least). That might not be the hostel's fault, though.

Awesome pool on the rooftop where you can hang out by, or in, by the bar, TV, games,music. Plenty of space to chill out on your own, too if you fancy beingThe room layouts mean the bedrooms are well ventilated, no nasty surprises!
