    Awesome hostel! It's super clean, and all the girls at the front desk are amazing! The hostel has an area with a bunch of suggested things to do and how to get to them, and different restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely go back in a heart beat

    Meander was the best place to jumpstart my trip. They have an awesome communal area with activities you can do each day and their handheld map really made navigating the MRT soooo easy. Plus, it has all the things highlighted on it that I wanted to do anyway. The beds are VERY firm. I think that’s common here, but I couldn’t sleep well because of it being too hard. Overall, nice facilities, kind staff and easy to meet people.

    Really enjoyed my stayed. I got a private room for two nights. Was impressed by the cleanliness and attentiveness of the staff. The common areas are nice to chill and you can hang with people if you choose to be social. 10 min walk to the Ximen station and shopping area. Very accessible by public transit. Staff can help you arrange a taxi drop off at the airport but the driver I got really wasn’t so great but that’s not the hostel’s fault. Highly recommend!
