                Convenient, courteous, cheap”

                Always a good idea if you're looking for a budget hotel near the zoo, port or if you need to be in Malate. We booked this for early morning access to the port, but also wanted to be near the restaurants and coffee shops by Robinson's mall. At under $30, it was ideal. Small rooms, but the staff is very good.

                This was my first time staying at Hostel 1632 and would recommend this hotel to friends and family anytime. The room was designed in modern feel although it was slightly small but enjoyed my experience very much. The location is perfect and will be back for certain. Well done and congratulations.

                Location, modern rooms, cleanliness

                Simply great. Room was a renovated quiet unit just as I requested and came with a flat screen TV with the best Cable TV I have ever encountered. Wifi worked superbly, so did the Air Con. Units have a very modern flair and thus lack a bit of character and I also found minibar prices a bit high; the proximity to a 7/11 was a plus.

                My stay at Hostel 1632 was pleasant. Easy going staff, friendly environment, with fast and easy internet connection. Only negative was the loud noise outside at night, constant clubbing music and street banter. Unfortunately there was nothing the hotel could do about it because the noises from the street were outside of their control.

                The wall of the room isn't sound proof. Therefore, it's quite noisy sometime.

                The location of this hostel is very convenient. Their staff are friendly. The room condition is alright except that the wall is not sound proof so u will hear a lot of noise when others open or close their door. However, it's worth giving a try if u are tired with dormitory.

                Dont hesitate to try this hotel the 2nd time.”

                Affordability. Convinient location. Have seen tourists from neighboring SE Asean countries stay in this hostel.
                As usual their rooms have this " crampy " feeling. Not really " value-for-money " compared to hotels in other Southeast Asian neighbors as hotel in Manila are expensive.

                My second stay actually. During my first stay I had this clautrophobic feeling as it was my first time to stay in a narrow and rectangular room. Ive learned to value the size of the room when I figured out there are 2 beds, a fridge, a phone and a tv set. Though everything about the room in Hostel 1632 have this " squeezed " appeal, Ive managed to sleep soundly despite hearing noise coming from adjacent rooms.

                Convenient to everything. cheaper end of scale, clean, modern
                high wifi costs, rooms, can be a little noisy sometimes

                I have stayed here at 5 times now i think over the last year. Why do i return? Well, 1 min walk to robinsons mall, 5 min walk max to anything in malate. the staff were very friendly towards me, and after my first check in, would greet me by name. If you have a "guest" they dont charge extra, but have the security that they take their id's until they leave. I mainly stayed there this trip as I was meeting a few people and going out in Malate/Ermita alot, and needed a room that would sleep at least 3. They have rooms like this, 1 dbl bed, 1 single. Approx room rate was 1900 peso at hotel, or $46 AU through agoda.

                I have stayed here on numerous occasions. Yes there are cheaper still. This room was about 1900peso, and 1 minute walk away you can get a room almost half that price, but the hotel isnt as nice etc. I guess i just like the fact here its operated like a hotel, but still has that small boutique style about it.

                100 metre walk to robinson mall, 4 min walk to LA CAFE, Cowboy Grill Mabini and just about anything else. Whilst not being anything fancy, it is clean, safe and secure
                Can get a little noise from other rooms. The wifi charge is pretty pricey. 240peso 1hr 480 4 hrs 960 16hrs

                This is the second time i have stayed here. It isnt the Hilton, but hey, its not Hilton prices either. Whilst the rooms arent huge( they are configured in a long narrow fashion) they are adequate. the front reception staff were very freindly during my stay and would know my name and greet me personally. There are cheaper places. but i was happy during my stay, that i kept extending. would return again.

                Great Value Hostel”

                Easy to find, great location for bars and restaurants. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. All amenities in.
                Because of the countless bars in the area, may not be a good hotel for kids. But the hotel itself is decent and clean.

                This is a great hostel, right in the heart of Manila. Newly built and clean. It is easy to spot, it's right across Rothmann's Inn and Pan Pacific, and beside the Chinese Temple. It has its own excellent Italian and Japanese restaurants. It's also very close to many great restaurants in Manila. Walking distance to Robinsons Place mall, and Roxas Boulevard.

                Waited very long to check in. Never got angry despite this but ofcourse asked a few times if we can check in because apparently they had no record of our booking. The third time i asked, the front desk staff raised his voice at me when all I asked was if we could deposit our baggage in the hotel and just return at a later time if they already sorted out ou booking. Such rude staff!!! He was very irritated when answering me! Also their rooms have cockroaches! Total waste of money if not for its very short distance from a place we had to visit.

                Extra parking fee”

                Hotel is very near to the mall and nearby restaurants in the Malate Area. The room is relatively small but well maintained and space is optimized. The comfort room is very small but I've seen smaller ones in HK. Parking fee of PhP150 is charged on top of the room booking. This was not advised at the Agoda site. No choice but to pay for it since the room is already paid. There was also no complimentary water in the room. Wifi is ok but quite slow.

                Great staff”

                Staffs are very pleasant, accommodating and friendly. Location is very near robinson's manila which is very nice. Many restaurants near the place as well. Room is clean, but the only thing is that it is too noisy at night time since you can hear all the loud noises of cars and voices from the streets and nearby bars. Prices went up as well with in the hear i have been going back to the hotel, and it seemed like they have removed some items, complimentary waters, and toiletries such as toothbrush and soap despite having price increase for their rooms ( applicable to standard room only ). But regardless of it, i still love staying in this hotel since its very accessible for me and to retaliate that the staffs are just amazing. From bellman, to front office to housekeeping and security. Definitely will still recommend this hotel! 😊

                Location,Staff and Value

                I have stayed at the Hostel 1632 many times, and I have found it the best hotel for the money anywhere in the Manila area. It is about a 30min Taxi from the Airport, and will cost about 1,000 Peso from the Airport, and about 500 Peso to the airport. There are many things to do and see in the area Hostel 1632 is located.

                Clean Efficent Comfortable

                Great place don't be fooled by the Hostel title, it is as far as I can see a fully blown Hotel. It is in a prime location clean comfortable. It has had a recent refit, the room was very modern and spotless. The only comment I would make is given the room was enormous the bathroom space was tiny... I would gladly recommend it to anyone.

                Clean, cool, friendly staff.

                Well, it was not me who booked the hotel. It was my mother and an older brother who came to Manila on a business trip. I am currently abroad. It so happened agoda.com will not allow her to create another account in her name, although she owns the email address. So she asked me to give this review on her behalf. My mom is quite happy with what the hostel has to offer. Compared to the previous one they patronized. I think she will keep coming back on Hostel 1632 whenever she has business transactions in Manila.
