Looking for a place to rest after a long and arduous walk in the heat of Manila? Red Carabao is your place. Opened in July 2009, Manila's newest, modern, alternative hostel is located in a clean, safe & peaceful neighborhood in Makati. Away from the 'sensuous' red light district, but within easy reach of everything Manila has to offer.
In addition to squeaky-clean bathrooms, fresh linens, free internet, a modern kitchen, and eco standards, Red Carabao is above all, every guest's home away from home.
So if your goal isn't to explore shady bars, we're your honest-to-goodness best choice. Our rates, the free amenities, and the Metro will save you time, money, and even your Manila trip altogether from unwanted pain and regret. Read below about some of the advantages of our location. Not to mention, the crowd here is much, much cooler than, say, other hostels lacking a common lounge.
Whether backpacking or just taking a pit stop, Red Carabao is committed to help you have a safe, wonderful time in Manila. So see you soon, yeah?
Red Carabao was founded to provide an alternative accommodation for international backpackers who wish to witness and engage real, authentic culture, and have real fun while at it. Or looking to meet like-minded folks. It is never our aim to cater to everyone's motives for travel. Makati is also the expat hang-out spot, not crime-ridden, overpriced Malate. We are no more than 20 minutes from the airport.
