    Bring earphones”

    This hostel is ideal to those who will be out the whole day. I don't recommend staying here during your downtimes because you'll be sharing rooms with different people who are rude and have no concept of one's personal space. It's important that you have your own earphones at night because THE SNORES WILL DEFINITELY KILL YOU.

    should be better at this price”

    Cheap but not that cheap. Pros... Staff seem nice. Place is clean. Roof with a view and a breeze. Cons... Ridiculously noisy. Jeepney noise is incredible b/c there's a bridge right up the street. The jeepneys have to gun it going up onto it. There's a bar next door that blasts tired records or karaoke from about 8 am to about midnight. The hostel is badly cramped on the inside, with the ever-present noise, stench and dust of jeepney traffic. Outside, you're on the edge of a working-class 'hood — likely not safe after dark, unlike the 'hood itself. Slick oily grey sludge in the gutter, smells of grease and drying piss... Run with pride, it seems, but not worth it at this price.

    clean tiny hostel with a nice rooftop common area”

    A short walk to Rockwell district, along a high traffic road. Bed bunks have curtains and private power outlets. Decent Wi-Fi. Bring your own towel, a thick blanket (dorms are kept freezing cold) and earplugs for the loud 24h noise from the street. The only real downside is beds are really short: you won't be able to extend your legs if you're taller than 1.7m

    Good Breakfast”

    Breakfast, Room, Hospitability

    When I arrived at the hostel at 9PM. The front door was locked and I couldn't get in. I was a bit scared because the area was dark, although it was a part of Makati. Luckily, a neighbour lady passing by taught me how to get in, so I was waiting for a staff member to show up. After one hour, I realised that somebody was sleeping in a guest room. I woke him up, apologising for disturbing his sleep, but actually he was a staff member! He was a really nice guy, but the incident was unacceptable. Other than that, I had a good stay in the hostel.

    nice staff and deserve the price

    there is a balcony of the building roof, a little noisy in the morning but with hot water shower, air-con, and blanket, wifi, and even breakfast included. the location in makati but still 2 MRT stops from the business makati. it reside in a residential area but if you walk 10min to the MRT station, you got Mc donalds and 711 store.

    good location, clean, homely

    the room at dormitory room was very clean. the atmosphere at the hostel just like home. small but confortable and homely. Great location, just about 300 metres (10 minutes walking) to the nearest MRT that can bring you to many tourist spots in Manila. The only thing that I'm rather dispointted with this hostel is about internet connection in the 3rd floor where I stayaed was very slow and there was no free mineral water. Damn! But Overall, it's good hostel to stay in Manila.

    near to way

    I was reserve 3 bed in 1 room (4 bed), but I dissapointed because only 2 bed remaining in that room, so the decision is what one person move to other room or make an extra bed, and we will decide make an extra bed. so, I think, its vain to reserved the room because I can come directly and reserve for that day. the room and bathroom is clean, but far from MRT (not far too but not near too). "Kuya" is a good person and I give a big thanks to Him. but, over all I like this hostel.

    clean, reasonably priced

    was looking for a clean but cheap place to stay in for the night. it's my first time to stay in a dormitory type of place and this will definitely be not my last given my experience with river one. very clean, with curtains for some guise of privacy. bathrooms are also very clean. location is pretty good, very accessible.
