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. View House Rules


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.


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.

    Amazing hostel! Met friends here and we even decided to continue traveling together. The staff was just like another guest, your friend. We drank with the staff, went to lunch with them, etc. The security and cleanliness were both impressive. The free beer and breakfast made my stay. In my opinion, the only place to stay in Manila.

    Really great place for a solo traveller. The free walking your and the free sunset drink are a great way to meet others. The bar and cafe are nice. Breakfast is included and fills you up (bread, fruit, eggs). Staff are friendly and rooms are clean and comfy.

    Room was fine, bathroom could have been cleaner though. Very helpful staff, good breakfast, the walk through the neighborhood was fun. Rooftop bar is very nice and nice to meet people. Makati is a good neighborhood, however you should know that it is very very noisy at night in the weekends (just so you know).

    This is my 2nd visit to Z hostel. Nice clean hostel. Amazing amenities. Nice rooftop bar and 24hour cafe. Staff aren’t very sociable and don’t really create good vibes so it really depends on who is saying here.

    Bit pricey for Manila. In a good area with nice bars and street food, rooftop bar (expensive drinks though) housekeeping kept coming into the room at weird times, a guy was running water for 20 minutes one morning. Good walking tour and cafe to eat food and chill in though

    Only stayed for one night but definitely done the job! Rooftop bar is great however some ‘forward’ locals like to join as the bar is open to the public and definitely tried to ‘entice’ me as a westerner, kind of made me feel uncomfortable but depends what you’re going for!

    Staff were friendly only to foreigners but not to Filipinos. Parties at the rooftop bar were fun but everytime I go there I got hold from the entrance by the guards/bouncers and starts checking on me, looking for stamps, my band, keycard etc. Did not happen once but a lot of times. If you are a foreigner, they will let you in straight. Shame on them.

    Staff needs to work with their friendliness and hospitality with fellow Filipino guests. Shame.
