    We loved staying at Ola Hostel. My friends and I went there just expecting to treat the place as somewhere to crash for the night after we went to an all-day event nearby. We were going to get dinner outside and everything, but we ended up staying at Ola's Rooftop bar. The drinks were great, the place looked awesome, the vibe was cool, and everything looked clean and well maintained. We also had simple free breakfast the next morning - bread and scrambled eggs - and even those were really nice!!

    Awesome stay in Manila, very clean and the staff are lovely and accommodating. Before we went out, they asked us where we were headed and gave us advice on how to get there/`what to see, as well as tips to stay safe. The building itself has AC and lockers, and a cool rooftop kitchen/bar to hang out in. Would definitely stay there again!!

    Nice hostel, friendly staff. Food upstairs was nice and cheap, free cocktails were nice aswell. Not too many things to do in the neighbourhood that are walking distance in my opinion.

    I stayed here once for 2 nights and currently on second stay. The first time was good, room was clean i had no complaints. I booked in for second time based on first experience and things have changed. There is 2 8 bed dorm options on hostel room. Unfortunately it seems I booked the lesser of the 2 options but they are same price. I am currently in much smaller room with only 2 outlets for 8 poeple and more cramped room. I accept hostels have better rooms but please make it clear when booking.

    Hostel was fine. I was staying there 2 night, of which one night I was the only person in my hostel dorm room and anytime I went to the roof no one was there so I just think the timing I was there was just bad. The café downstairs was really nice and staff were super helpful. Only 15minutes from the airport so would recommend if you’re just passing through Manila.

    Stayed one night purely to sleep and leave the next day. On arrival there was no Wi-Fi which for a backpacker is an issue, especially I had just been travelling for a 28 hours. They allowed me to hotspot off of their phone for a bit but yeah, this was an issue. I saw one other person there so atmosphere was… well there wasn’t one. The bedding/room was nice, super comfy and clean.

    It’s quite annoying how the plug sockets are not near the bed. Could of been more clean in the rooms. Hostel wasn’t very busy for a lively atmosphere which makes the picture on hostel world look different to how it really is. However staff we’re really helpful and Friendly. Especially one of the bartenders. Gave lots of information.
