Pink Manila was one of the most exciting hostels I have stayed at. The staff is a lot of fun and helpful with getting around. They have an awesome facility with pools, couches, tables, and a pool table. The bathrooms aren't perfect, but you're at a hostel in Manila, so it was fine. When I was there, they had a big BBQ Party where they cooked a ton of good food. They sell beer and drinks all the time. It is definitely a good hostel to meet people at and go places with!!

It had been great to stay at the hostel. It has been my base for two months at the Philippines. It came back four times. It has been one of the best hostels I've been at, the last half year. The pool is defiantly a plus, it can get really hot in Manila!!! The only thing, which is not that great is the breakfast. You get like two toasts and a hot drink. It's better then nothing, but it's not why you should those this place. The location is great, it's easy to get around by metro, jeepneys fx

Probably the greatest hostel I've stayed in. Had such a great time there, met loads of amazing people, and the staff were incredibly friendly. I stayed 3 times over the course of a month in the Philippines, and I genuinely can't wait to go back. It made my stay in Manila, a city I didn't like, really amazing. If you're looking to make friends and ahve a good time then you've gotta stay here!

Staff are friendly but much party and noise even late night. Not good for those have early wake-up or plans the next day.

1. I arranged for airport transport with Pink Manila. I waited in pickup area for 30 minutes and the ride never showed. 3 airport security men approached me for assistance, then wanted tip. Finally 2 drivers verbally struggled with whom was getting my fare. Finally, an older gentlemen driver, Rico, overcharged me. When I asked the front desk, the person didn't know what happened and no one from management cared to apologize. 2. The signage for the building is small and not readily apparent

If you don't care about high class bathrooms and you wanna have a really great time in Manila weather it is just for a few days or a bit longer, that's the place to be !!!

Very unimpressed. Bathrooms were unacceptable. Non functioning shower head did not attach to the wall (other option was gross bath) no door to the toilet..... Unable to lock this bathroom, was the same room that housed the lockers for 16 bed mixed dorm. Pool was FILTHY - looks much better in photos. $2000 for some doors/hardware would go a long way. Friendly staff, open concept was nice, dorm room clean, hostel occupied 5-7th floors of the apartment building- great views. Would not return.

The location is fantastic. I stayed in 2 other places during my time in Manila and this was my favourite by a long shot. Pink Manila is a little oasis in the part of Manila you want to be staying in. It's fun, easy to get to, and has a pet cat. Win! Only downside is the beds are awful. I hope they change them soon. Very saggy and thin mattresses. You'll be exhausted enough to sleep in them though after trekking through Manila all day.

They have a lovely chilled atmosphere with staff willing to help you with anything you need :)

Anne and Jet and other staff go way out of their way to make your stay here enjoyable and fun. The pool helps, the roof top deck helps, the singing helps, the views, the food, the free breakfast, the closeness to the metro--all this helps make Pink Manila a good place to stay, but it's Jet and Anne that put it on the top of the charts. Tell them Paul sent you. :)

Not sufficiently exploit the potential of the hostel ! Bathroom and toilet destroy and not convenient, no Aircon while it is expected !, dirty swimming pool...

Location ok, staff very helpful with local info.and friendly, but the room is very basic and far from well air conditioned :( had 2 nights stay booked and paid, but left after one as so hot didn't sleep and very uncomfortable, not to mention the air con is only on at night so u can't sit in your room for 5 mins during the day - may be better in not so hot months.

Had a great time. Unfortunately the hostel has such a great atmosphere that we didn't see anything in Manila and just spent 3 days in the pool, sunbathing, or chilling out. 16 bed dorm room was comfortable but a bit warm because the ceiling fan on our side didn't work so it was a balance between being hot and opening the windows and being eaten by bugs. Shower was being fixed (think it might be done by now) so we had to use the ones downstairs, but never once had to wait.

Great fun-loving staff; pool; free breakfast; tasty pay dinners; most interesting facilities ever; close to metro; restaurants, laundry, massage, barber in the neighborhood.

Thoroughly enjoyed the bar and the swimming pool (in that specific order, cause the former lead to the latter!) and the staff was helpful. Had a blast there and would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to pass by Manila.
