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.

    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.

    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.

    The location is convenient but there is downtown and very noisy until midnight. However, the staffs so nice and room is clean. If the outlets near the bed, it will be better.

    Lovely hostel which is well kept and has friendly staff. Was very quiet during my visit, maybe due to the covid restrictions in the city, so the social element was not really there at all
