MNL Hostel

Central location; near shopping malls/restaurants; accessible to transportation
Hostel facilities are nice and tidy. Breakfast was good with several choices. Very nice staff.

Relatively fast wifi and great service

service, wifi, and cleanliness
The only thing I didn't like during my stay's breakfast, but overall, the place has excellent service and the place is always clean. The hostel also did not prevent me from getting some work done given it's relatively fast wifi and tables available. For 520 pesos, this place's a steal.

Relatively clean but comfortable stay
I stayed in a double room on the top floor and it was clean and spacious. The 'blanket' was a bedsheet which did not help when it gets cold at night. The toilets on my level was cleaner than the ones at the ground floor. It had proper ventilation and was a lot pleasant to shower in. The communal showers on the ground floor was dirty and smelt of pee which is very off-putting. I think they should clean it more often. Overall it was a pleasant stay with a lot of dining options around the area. Walk for 30mins and you will find yourself in Ayala Ave.

Under my expectation
The staff is awesome, the location is good. But the room is quite small and there's smell of ages. The shared bathroom is just ok enough but I really dont feel comfortable.

Great Stay, Great Location

Location, Friendly Staff, Good Pricing
Our stay at MNL was our debut for the Philippines and set a nice standard for decent budget accomodation. The location is one of the best parts about this nice little hostel. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and helped us plan getting to our next destination(which can be quite daunting at first). It has a great hostel vibe. We stayed in an AC room, it was quite noisy but you realise that it's normal for any hostel in a built up area. The room wash it's comfortable for the price, and in walking distance to great local food as well as insane boutique eateries. Checkout the 'Hole in the wall', only a block away from MNL on the top level of one of the many shopping malls in the area. It's a must!

Hostel at the heart of Makati

great location, helpful staff, good vibe
We booked double room for 1 night. The room was very small with no windows. It had a double bed and a small space for luggage. If you dont like AC it will be hot to stay inside the room. The walls is so thin so you hear everything your neighbors do, but the earplugs are available from reception. WC and showers are shared but clean. Kitchen has everything to have a snack.
