    Great stay here. The best sleep we’ve had in a while! Class mattress with ac and fan in room! Perfect sized lockers outside the rooms to keep your belongings safe and keep the room from getting clustered. Staff and the owner Lee were amazing! Answered all our questions and helped us plan out what to do with our remaining 4 weeks in the phillipenes! Cool spacious hang out area on the first floor if you stay in for the day. Free map of local things to check out, and list of local foods to try!

    Love it Love it Love li, the hostel with its green everywhere is such a beautiful conversion of the rather dirty environment in the big city of Manila but you feel like in a little oasis once you get into the hostel! The Staff is super nice and helpful and if you meet the owner li give him a big greet from me such a courteous and nice guy!

    This is a lovely hostel with a great, relaxed atmosphere but what makes it very special is the exceptional staff. The owner is super caring and generous, he gave us free dinner.

    Very good value for the money! The hostel is a cosy green hidehout in the middle of an otherwise hectic city. Lot of space to hangout in the common area. Good spacious lockers to store your stuff. The staff is not short of amazing - super friendly and helpful! The owner really helped me out on the rest of my trip, as I was super lost and a bit stressed about what to do after my planned route seemed like a bad idee due wheater conditions. Will definitely come back!

    This is a beautiful little hostel with lots of open common space, plants, and kind staff. If you ask staff for their hand drawn map, it is helpful and will give you a few days worth of stuff to do in Manila. They can recommend great food nearby as well. Cons: No A/C outside of the dorm room. Had to kill a large cockroach in the common room. Beds were very thin and hurt my hips to sleep on my side. No running water when I was there (but I am told this is normal, you can wash with buckets of water

    We had a private bedroom and it was clean but the door would not lock. The bathroom facilities would’ve been fine except there was no running water and the day I arrived the facilities needed cleaning before I wanted to use them. Also people slept in the lounge which was strange. But staff were smiley and friendly and though there was use of a fridge there was no way to even get drinking water in the hostel. Overall don’t recommend I’ve stayed in way nicer hostels in Manila.

    Really disappointing stay considering the rating. Only a sliding glass door to the bedroom with the common room right outside and no lock on the door or curtains over bedroom windows. Mattress was 2 separate cushions pushed together. Only 3 cold showers and 2 toilets for the whole hostel. I felt they were quite dirty- maybe because so many people were using them. No kitchen facilities despite advertised. Staff didn’t seem interested in giving sightseeing ideas/ directions.
