Nothing Like I read about..”

I was really skeptic about getting to 8Hostel. It is because I read so much negative reviews. However, I went ahead and booked the place. I told myself you get what you paid for. But I was wrong. The place is really nice. It is clean,. Daily cleaning service in the dorms. Plus, you can ask a towel or anything that the facility is supposed to provide and they will bring it to you right away. The staff was amazing; very respectful. I will definitely book this place if i ever happen to be in Manila; and of course I do recommend it to any traveler like me.

Sulit (Budget friendly)”

I was looking for a place near Quiapo that time (Manila) because I had my board exams for 3 days which was situated in Manila. So I opted this hotel because it was cheap and just one ride away from the school. The staffs are very accommodating and the place is clean. Though going to the place from Quiapo is kinda crowded and smelly.

Affordable but Noisy and no security ”

Pros - Affordable and budget friendly - Very nice staff - You can have privacy as each bed bunks has cover - Airconditioned room - With toiletries - Towel and blanket - Near quiapo church - free WiFi - free drinking water and cups - own secured locker Cons - no security guard present even at night and bystanders are hanging out at the entrance gate at night - female room are very near the reception area so you can hear everything. - too noisy. During my stay there were 2 kids playing around 10pm. The staff wasn't able to control them. I think they are the kids of the hotel owner. - no towel hook on the bathroom - Check-in time is strictly 2pm. With extra charge if requesting for early check-in. - no hotel lobby or common areas. - lots of mosquitoes If you are booking this hostel just for a place to sleep, don't choose this. You were not be able to sleep because of noise.

About Allowing Guests To Cook Inside”

This is entirely not about the hostel. Everything should be good, especially on its price. I am on my 3rd week stay, and I just couldn't help but wonder why one foreigner guest is allowed to cook noodles and KNORR chicken cubes inside a small room that is shared by many. The smell stinks so badly that I was forced to go out each time this guest cooks such inside. I hope the management can very well address the matter accordingly. Imagine all your clothes and beddings and blanket smelling like CHICKEN CUBES. And this guest even throws the chicken cubes wrapper in the toilet bowl. I have taken photo of it and shown it to the hostel staff downstairs.

Worth with its price. Medyo di malinis sa labas (papasok sa loob due to public passway) but malinis nman sa loob lalo na sa loob ng room. They clean it every now and then. Two thumbs up for that! May free mineral water pa. Accommodating staff except nung isa na matabil (nililibak nya yung ibang customer hahahah). Over-all, I'll surely stay again in this hostel.

It's been a week already and I am still here tho. Everything should be okey for the price. My only request since arriving is to change my bedspace location to lower bed but as of now I am still waiting. Upper bunk bed where I am staying is just noisy when moving. I hope the management can see this through.

Pros - It's my second time staying here and the first stay was awesome. Clean room and nice equipment inside the room. It is also secure. Cons - Water supply was always interrupted during the second stay which made the stay harder. Hopefully they will be ble to do something about it because it is so inconvenient.

Not a hostel, just a bed”

Location was close to Bureau of Immigration which was my purpose of staying. Its listed as a hostel. It is not. The rooms were clean but the building very old so there were electrical wires hanging out everywhere w one shorting out every 10 minutes and there was mould on the walls. The beds were very hard and small, it smelled horrible, and the AC was freezing but u had to have it on to even be in the room. Its listed as 8.4 for reviews. I would give it a 3 or 4. Price range should be $5. The ladies working were lovely tho!

Acceptable”

Our first stay was ok. Yesterday, we booked through here our supposedly second stay, we clicked on the “Pay at the property” option. Unfortunately, when we got there someone told us that someone already reserved the room where we were supposed to stay and we learned that that someone was a walked in and reserved minutes before my husband arrived and was supposed to pay. And they said that walk-in cx are the main priority since they are willing to pay the full price. WE ARE WILLING TO PAY THE FULL PRICE, too. Hence, my husband being there that time. When asked what we should do, the manager or owner or whoever told us they do not know and when my husband suggested if we just cancel our booking, he/she told him to just cancel it. We are so disappointed. Wonder if we planned to pay it on the day when we were supposed to stay which is two weeks away, we would have ended on the streets. Hahay. We’ll never book or recommend you guys. Never again. Too sad

horrible experience staying here.”

No outlets in the private room, couldn't plug in or charge any electronics. Elevator up to 6th floor didn't work half the time, had to take stairs up and down. Hotel card key didn't work most of the time to open the door, so had to go back to the lobby which is in a different building to have them help me open the door multiple times. People (both workers and other guests) making loud noises very early (4-6 AM) so never got a full nights sleep there. Also in a pretty bad area, lots of poverty and beggars surrounding the building. Horrible experience and would not stay here again.
