Good hostel as the staff are a laugh and will do their best to help!! Good place to meet other people too!
Dirty, toilets and bathroom have not been looked after (you have to ask for new toilet paper yourself), bad breakfast and the swimming pool looks like a mixture of milk and water.
Getting here by public transport from the airport you need to take a bus then sky train. After that you walk, which is really only 10minutes but nobody seems to know. Once we were outside we walked past it twice! Awesome people we met here from all over the world. We stayed in the dorm facility fan room, which actually wasn't too hot. The pool is definitely an added bonus! Hostel is located on the 5th floor, as we didn't really like Manila, this was the perfect hostel to escape from the madness
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Pink Manila Hostel. I ended up spending a week there in total whilst I was in Manila. I need to say a huge thank you to the staff. Apologies on spelling of names. Thank you Theresa and Giselle for helping me as much as you both did. Extremely warm and welcoming people. Both credits to the Philippines. The atmosphere at the PMH is lively most nights around the pool and chill out area. The view over the cityscape is pretty cool too. Peace
The staff are adorable and if you choose to eat there you won't be disappointed. I would definitely recommend Chef Ian's Morroccan meatballs alongside one of their very reasonably priced beers. The pool is perfect especially on the hot Manila days. The rooms all have fans thankfully. If you are trying to get here by taxi make sure to tell them to go the corner of Bautista and Don Pedro Street and look out for the yellow building with the gym on the ground floor. Great place to meet people!

Once you make your way past the gym (don't worry, it really is a hostel), you'll be pleasantly surprised. Great chill-out space, pool table, books, POOL in the sun... great food and very helpful staff. Good value for money and a great place to plan the next part of your trip. Nothing really close by to do, but a 5 minute walk to the train to head to a market or whatever. Warning, WiFi is generally terrible everywhere... there's an internet cafe 2 minutes away.
One of the best hostels ever! Especially the swimming pool and the people!
The hostel overall was good, be wary of the staff's advice they will always give you an answer, but that answer may not always be correct. We were sent to the wrong bus station for an evening bus, experiencing a mad rush across the extreme traffic of Manila. The hostel is a little difficult to find, but the pool and backpacker atmosphere was great.
All of the staff here are friendly and welcoming. Great place to stay and the pool is an added bonus.

The pink Manila is definitely a chill place to check out. Only got to stay for two nights, but will be back. I couldn't really complain about anything, except the fact I couldn't remember everyone's names! Thank you guys, kindly..
No aircon rooms are like a sauna! Nothing like the picture not very clean ether! Location is terrible also
I had a great stay at Pink! The biggest plus was the swimming pool on a hot day! The hostel is it's own little oasis in the crowded city of Manila. A nice place to start discovering the city, start planning your Philippines trip or end your stay in this beautiful country. I booked my trip to the Banaue rice terraces through the hostel, the staff was very helpful and facilitated me by keeping my big bag at the hostel while putting some laundry through the laundry service! Awesome place!
I booked and paid for one night when I arrived in the morning. Check in was at 2 pm, but I could chill out I their nice facilities. In the meantime I found a cheap flight ticket for the same day so I had to leave before I got the room. The staff offered a credit in the restaurant equally to the price of the room that I had to cancel - pretty fair I think. Food was good but a bit expensive. Staff was outmost friendly and helpful in all matters. Hopefully I will stay more than 3 h next time :)
Great staff and great atmosphere, it's a really chilled out place where you can hang out perfectly and have a nice view of Manila!
Perfect hostel near the dltb bus terminal with a pool and great view. Cozy atmosphere and good to meet people. Staff is genuenly friendly ánd helpfull. Its cheap aswell, loved it
Stay was great! Staff were awesome and the environment promoted and kept is a really friendly one. Very cool. I loved everything about my stay and would come back again!
Pink Manila is great! Super friendly staff always willing to help and chat. Great lounge area complete with outdoor balcony, sitting area and swimming pool, great for relaxing and meeting other travelers. Good location in Manila, not far from airport and close to multiple food options. Overall had a great stay here!

Good hostel, nice to be way above street level on the 7th? Floor as manila is definetly a rougher type of city. Not too far from robinsons mall if you need supplies either. Had a bar with food too. Good kick off point for Philippines.
Great place to stay for solo and groups of backpackers. Good vibe, swimming pool, great staff. Easy to get to from the airport by public transport.
Very nice place to chill out, play pool or chill in the swimmingpool. Rooms are very basic and shower and A/C didn't work in our private room. The staff definitely made up for it though. They are super friendly and extremely helpfull.
