Malvar Hostel Dec 2015

Location, Friendly & Helpful Staff, & Value...
We have been Customers for three Manila Visits. This is our fourth stay and there ONLY issue we had were the 'Bed Bugs', which attacked the first night there. At first we thought the bites were Mosquitoes, which the Staff readily treated our room - #110. Later on we realized they were 'Bed Bugs' , of which Complete Treatment of the room needed to be made. We do hope the Management will read this and remedy the issue, before we return to Manila.

Very clean, friendly staff and good security

Value for money, location and close to all the shopping
Overall the stay was excellent, but the only downside is the noise level from surrounding clubs and bars with karokes, also the staff can be more quiet when doing maintenance or re-arranging furniture in the middle of the night

a gem of a hostel

friendly and attentive staff; very clean and tasteful interiors; nearness to places of interest
It was very good overall. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The interior was a pleasant surprise; you wouldn't guess from the lobby that the inside is very homey and tastefully decorated. Location was very convenient too. You could walk to the historic Malate Church, Robinson's Mall, and famous dining places (Aristocrat, Cafe Adriatico, etc). The breakfast though could be improved :)

Good value for money-very nice staff

Very nice and helpful staff, always smiling Good location in malate Clean basic room with hot shower and wifi However, no window in our room: always nice to have a window even if you don't spend your time in the room as a tourist.

Lovely staff, too bad about the hotel.

Staff, flexible attitude and helpfulness
I found the hotel to be badly dated and came to know what is meant by the reference "gray towels". However the staff were wonderful and you could not find any fault in their attitudes, helpfulness and flexibility. I arrived late and needed to get a late checkout - 6.00pm so that I could get some sleep after flying all night to attend a conference in the morning. No problem and a reasonable extra payment. Thanks. Did notice a chemical smell in the afternoon which was enough to cause me to cough quite a bit. A little noisy but once I laid down I was asleep in moments. Hard to rate but a rough idea is 5 star staff in a 2 star hotel. Probably would look elsewhere next time.
