    I loved my stay here. The place is very cool looking, clean, convenient, and suitable for a layover in Manila. No atmosphere really and there is a bar here that plays loud music until about 11pm.

    Good travelers hostile. It is inland a quit a way so you have to rent a scooter which is easy there, but best to rent a scooter on the beach. Several other places to drink and eat within walking distance as well as the hostile sells all you need.

    Im a returning guests, stayed here everytime im in Manila due to the location only (few walks to robinson mall) room was not clean properly, shower is like a pool cos its clogged! hairs and dirts floating and same with the sink!! Toilet is usually dirty and had to informed the reception to clean it. Staffs could do better than just chilling and gossipping. Also no hostel vibe at all. I lost my wireless headset (either someone took it from my bed or the housekeeping ;) so dissapointing.

    The first thing you’ll notice when you walk in is the smell! Lucky you can’t smell in your dorm. Water shuts off at 7 pm to 4 am so they say, so using the toilet is a nightmare when there no flushing them! Got sick from the food they serve upstairs next to the bar. Horrible experiences won’t stay here again photos are lie don’t waste your money here.

    To be fair, it's mostly a fine hostel, staffed by kind people BUT both times I stayed here there was no water at night. I had come here before I flew to take a shower. And they did not even have water saved in the bathroom buckets ( it's a Philippino thing) They had the same sign from four weeks on the doors, so they knew there would be no water at night, and they still didn't get any water ready in the buckets. Oh, and "free breakfast" is a cup of coffee.
