Nice and clean and only 130peso taxi drive from the airport. Lots of local kids staying in my room and they went in and out of the room all night and talking loudly which was annoying


The hostel is great and the staff always smiling and ready to help. Loved my stay there. The only bad thing is the location. You need to take the subway to Buendia station and then walk for 7 minutes next to a very busy road. The walkway is about 1 meter wide, on your right is a high wall (walled rich people residential area), on your left a very busy road with plenty of big city buses and cars passing by. Dangerous to walk!


The staff was great!! All were very helpful. Will definitely stay there again when in Manila.

Close to the airport, clean and spacious, the price was spot on for what they had to offer. Not a bad deal for a stopover in manila. As for the city around the hostel...yikes. Good luck.


Great experience. Absolutely love the fact it's a walking distance to BGC and ayala. It's a bit of a commute but if you don't mind it. It's the absolute best way to beat traffic and explore makati/taguig on foot. Also, rooftop is a great place to unwind and enjoy makati/taguig skyline for a very cheap price.


I stayed in a dorm on the 9th floor where WiFi was 'broken'. It was very uncomfortable to go upstairs every time to see internet. The water pressure of shower was always very, very weak. You need to walk from the Buendia station if you use MRT. The way is easy and not long but very stressful at the same time: Minila's super heavy traffic is right next to you. Staffs are friendly as other hostels.


Meh... No beer or drinks at the rooftop bar and the staff didn't know about local area when asked. Clean and close to the airport if traffic is low.


No water in the shower in the night.


centrally located close to city center, price was cheap 500 pesos night, employees are nice and helpful. the only comment is that the signage was hard to see they should create a bigger signage.

-Over all good for money, the payment is cheap and not very expensive -bed is large and comfortable, cool air conditioning -they do not have a restaurant inside, maybe a good addition

Rooms are good. The rooftop is amazing- you can really view the skyline with almost 350 degrees view of the city. There were no complimentary coffee or cold water though. A great hostel nevertheless, safe. The staffs are helpful as well.
