Very good location and lovely staff:)) Would love to stay there again if I’m back in Manila :)) Room and toilet is very clean over there.Rooftop is amazing even it’s next to the road and a bit noisy but it’s acceptable lol;))you will definitely love it:)
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
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, fun stay, in 1 River Central”
Really enjoyed my stay in 1 River Central: very fun and friendly place, felt like home!Safe place. The staff were very friendly and approachable too. Very accessable too - close to the MRT station and Makati shopping areas.
Excellent Budget Accommodation”
for budget conscious traveller, this place is excellent as you will be able to feel at home and at the same time meet other foreigner guests like korean, chinese, etc. place is clean and serve good breakfast.
near MRT line and even with breakfast”
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.
just like home”
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.
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.
Very clean, good location”
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.
One of the cheapest places in Makati you can stay Rooms are simple but fine Good wi fi Staff is good The biggest downside is the street in front of the hostel the noise is extrem day/night 24/7 don,t go there if your having problems sleeping with noise
Clean but noisy”
Good wifi, clean rooms. Only 1 bathroom shared with more than 16 people. Very noisy street and not in a good area.
Comfortable and clean.
Good for money”
I love with the receptionist (Lera) if not mistaken, she was very friendly and helpful. If u are stay here, please to meet her. The facilities is basic but it's worth what I paid. The room is very clean.
Too close to the road”
Hostel itself was in ok location and was fairly clean but we go no sleep what so ever in are stay due to jeepneys and motorbikes riding by the road 24/7 would not stay again due to this alone also bunk bed is slightly hard to get into and too close together
Good place and good staff.”
stayed there for 2 nights. the place is good, good internet connection, clean CR and rooms, accommodating staff. the only problem is that the jeepneys in the road can be heard from the rooftop and annoying but overall- a good place to stay, value for money.
Nice hostel with very friendly staff”
I had an awesome stay in 1 River Central Hostel. Rooms are clean and the location is good since it's in walking distance to the MRT station. I was impressed how friendly the staff was. Thank you again for making my stay as pleasant and for all your help. Can only recommend it!
so so only”
the location was not that ideal neither close to makati nor malate. there was no any groceries shops nor 7-11 around that area so please do bring water and foods in case you need it, otherwise you have to walk about 15 mins to fastfood restaurants.
we had a lovely stay..staffs were accommodating and helpful to our needs, thanks specially to ate kath..she had been a great help on our entire stay and to other staff too..definitely worth coming back if you need a budget place to stay or you are in groups
