Property Description

What started out as a concept for a traveler’s space has now become the heartbeat of a neighborhood turned capital-of-cool. Locals and visitors have seen the best of Manila skyline up in our world-renowned roofdeck, have met travel-buddies-now-lifelong-friends inside our dorm rooms, and have experienced the brand of fun only Filipinos can bring out at any time. This is Z Hostel --- a new generation of travel accommodation that is transforming the hospitality industry: more interactive, more social, more human.

Z Hostel is a pioneering social hostel located at the heart of the Makati metropolis. The energy inside Z is infectious as social events and human interaction take centerstage. Carefully curated events are happening every night at the roofdeck and in the neighboring establishments promoting local arts, music, and culture. For Z, socialization is the new sleep. And while every traveler’s comfort is valued, Z is foremost a social venue.

A good night doze might not be guaranteed, but if you are looking for overflowing creativity, social activity, and fun events to the T, you have definitely found a home in Z.

COVID-19 Update at Z Hostel

Dear valued guests,

We hope you are keeping safe and staying healthy as we are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been overwhelming almost every sector of the society. And while it is mostly threatening to our health, the economic system by which we rely on is also greatly affected. This is where we all come in – you, our guests, and we, Z Hostel, are the people who are helping to keep the wheel rolling for our families and for the people around us. We are all in an extremely difficult situation, but we are in it together.

It is paramount that in this situation, we must conduct ourselves in the safest way possible as to minimize risks. We have implemented Social Distancing and sanitation protocols to accommodate the guidelines set by the government. However, we feel obligated to ensure the utmost safety and health of all of us. In this light, we are moving forward with the following guidelines to be implemented throughout the Hostel. We ask for your cooperation and understanding, as we all work together to get through these trying times.

Front Desk
You are highly encouraged to make inquiries regarding clean linens and any front desk-related assistance over WhatsApp or SMS to minimize contact. Otherwise, please observe social distancing guidelines when physically inquiring at the front desk.

Housekeeping
At this point, we are humbly asking you, our guests, to do the sanitation and changing of sheets inside your rooms. Sheets and cleaning materials will be left outside your door once a week. The schedule is as follows:

Rooms 503 and up - Fridays
Rooms 304 to 502 - Saturdays
Rooms 201 to 303 - Sundays

Toilet cleaning will be done by our staff. Regarding your trash, you can leave the plastic bags outside your doors and we will collect it.

Café
The hostel café is open to serve you from 7AM-8PM. However, all requests must be coordinated with the staff on duty as the refrigerator and kitchen are only accessible by them for now. You can (1) leave your food and drinks for storage, (2) fresh or canned food for cooking, and (3) cups for hot water refill at the table provided.

Last order is at 7:30PM. Make sure to have your dinner planned and eaten before 8PM as there will be no more staff to assist with your requests after that time.

Going Outside
We ask you to plan carefully and minimize your trips outside of the Hostel. According to the Enhanced Quarantine rules, you are only allowed to go out for supplies. Please refrain this to no more than once a day and assign only one roommate to do the errands if possible.

Coming Back
Upon returning to the hostel, sanitize thoroughly from the door until you reach your respective room by using alcohol, washing hands, and taking a shower right away. Avoid going to other areas of the hostel unless these have been completely done. View House Rules

Overview

Get ready to meet your new besties when you stay at Z Hostel Philippines. We're all about fostering friendships, with nightly events in and around the hostel. Wake up to our free breakfast buffet before the free walking tour. Or if you prefer to take photos from a height, head up to our rooftop deck for incredible views of the Manila skyline. While you're at it, grab a cold beer or cocktail from our bar – happy hour runs from Monday to Thursday.

Location

We're in Poblacion, the hipster neighbourhood of Manila's financial area, Makati. Once a red light district, the area is now home to craft beer and cocktail bars, with a few art galleries thrown in for good measure. You'll want to pack some comfy shoes for bar-hopping! It takes just under two hours to reach us from Manila Airport using public transport, or half an hour if you hop in a taxi.

Rooms and Dorms

Our spacious dorms have wide, customised bunk beds and plenty of space to hang your clothes. The lockers have plug sockets inside, so you can charge your electronics while you're out and about. In our all-female dorms, we've hung vanity mirrors to make getting ready for a night out in Poblacion even easier. Our private rooms on the top floor come with bathrobes and a queen-size bed to spread out in (who said hostels couldn't do luxury?). Linen and towels are included with every bed.

Extras and activities

We have free Wi-Fi all over the hostel, as well as an on-site co-working space in case you need to study or work while you're here. You'll also find plenty of books and board games in the lounge if you need a break from work! With our elevator, it's easy to get back down from the roof deck when it's time to head out and discover the local nightlife. Our reception is open 24 hours a day, so you'll get a warm welcome whatever time you come home.

    Z hostel is awesome, It has a great location, great bar on the roof, great breakfast in the morning. It was very clean. It was very well managed and the staff very completely helpful and nice at all times, Its one of the better hostels for socializing in Manila. The only things I would have liked to have were privacy curtains on the beds and better internet in the rooms.

    This hostel is great for backpackers, travelers on a budget or solo travelers looking to meet people. I stayed here for 3 nights. Facilities are clean, good breakfast included, and there is a roof top bar with reasonably priced drinks and even a free drink when you go up between 6-7! I made several friends while at this hostel. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and it is in the hip and trendy neighborhood of Makati. Would definitely recommend.

    The location was nice. A bit out of the city but overall a good area. Staff was friendly and bar and open spaces created a good environment to meet people. Had an issue with cockroaches in my dorm, but other than that it was nice!!

    Great place to stay in Manila. The staff were super polite, friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar is popular among locals as well as guests, highly recommended the free walking tour if it's your first time in the area.

    Great vibes all around, you do need to leave a PHP 500 deposit at reception or leave your passport behind. The bar at the roof was a really pleasant surprise but the air conditioning at my room rattled loudly all night.

    Only stayed a night as a stop over before going back to the airport. Seems like a nice area. Room was very nice with lockers with lights and plug sockets in. Each bed had a light and a plug socket. Didn't go to the rooftop bar as we were jetlagged but heard good things. Would stay again if in Manilla. Very good breakfast in the morning with a nice selection.

    A nice place to relax before starting or ending your trip. The hostel is quiet in the day but a lot of unique restaurant options available outside the hostel in the evening. The free breakfast was good too. If you like a social scene it is good for that too.

    Most people here are either starting or ending their trip, so it’s a good place for getting tips from people that have just finished and to meet people you might be able to travel on with. The walking tour is a must. Honestly thought that Makati was a ghost town until the tour. Bars and restaurants are just often hidden. There is actually tons of them nearby. One thing. Cockroaches in the rooms. Not heaps. But they are there. So if they freak you out, maybe stay elsewhere. Or just squash them.
