Best Hostel in the Philippines!”
Rooms and beds are comfortably and ergonomically designed for you. Individual charging stations, lamp, blankets and towels. Soundproof rooms. Shared bathroom are clean with toiletries. You can do your laundry and ironing of clothes. Wifi are fast and AC's are strong cold. We are group of 8 and rented the entired dorm room, stayed for 2 night as treat for my friends on my birthday. All my friends including me are SEPANXed from the experience Lub D Makati gave us. Hostel is accessible to all your needs that I can think of. A Venue Mall is just accross the hostel, there is BPI ATM and 24/7 restaurants nearby. Hope Lub D can have more branches in the Metro or better yet in The Philippines! We'll definitely go back here more often! Kudos to you guys!
Lub D Makati is a slick, modern hostel that’s comfortable, clean and at the price I paid, great value for money. You get more privacy than in a stereotypical hostel (each bed had a privacy curtain) and you don’t feel like you lose out should you have the top bunk. Although the lockers (in the room) don’t have a bottom, a small locker is provided by the bed for you to keep a closer eye on your valuables. Hangers and a clothes rail per bed are also provided. Just as important as the room I stayed in, bathrooms are clean and there is a washing machine one can use (for a charge). All in all, Lub D Makati gets my personal approval and it’s somewhere I will look into staying again in the future.
Lub d Philippines Makati was a great place to stay! It was basically fun with family. They have a game room where their front desk is located which makes the place cozier and comfortable. The kids had fun with the room, especially those who slept at the top bunk. I would recommend that you guys put up one of these in Cebu. Lub d Philippines Cebu would be a great idea. The price is affordable and worth it.

I highly recommend the place!”
It was my 2nd time staying in Lub d Philippines Makati. They always live up to mu expectation. I love the room and how it was designed. I also like their bathroom those white unique tiles are really neat to look at. I also love out window view of the city lights, building and streets. They also have different events and games every night. Trust me, you will love the place. Very homey and fun. They also have a game interaction level, like literally all the guest and employees can interact with one another and play board games and table games. Book now!
My best friend and I were looking for affordable staycation places within Metro Manila, and Lub D Makati happened to be one of the recommended places. We decided to try it because it's accessible to us (we live in Cavite so travel is pretty easy) and pretty affordable. The deluxe bedroom is honestly so cute yet minimalist at the same time. We absolutely love the room features, the staff are friendly, and Lub D is also surrounded with so many good places to eat in! Definitely a good start to our staycation addiction.
My brother, his wife and 2 older kids needed a place to stay before going back to the US. I chose Lub D Philippines for them, primarily because of its location (convenience not only to nice restaurants, malls, and the place where I'm staying; but, also a short distance to the airport particularly if one takes the Osmena Skyway going to NAIA Terminal 3). Despite the small/limited floor area of the room good for 4 persons, everything was designed functionally well. The kids loved the loft type beds. I would have chosen to sleep in one of the loft beds, if there was another one. I also loved the reception area. It looks very casual as it is a combination of a reception desk, lounging area, snack area and recreation area. It does not give one an intimidating feeling just like what I felt when I go to grander hotels. Overall, they had a great time. My brother and his family told me I made a good choice of the place.

Best hostel I stayed at”
Lub D was super clean. All staff members were very kind, welcoming and responded to any questions and concerns I had. a few things I didn't like (but had little impact on my overall stay) was the fact that the blinds did not fully cover your bed. I spoke to one of the staff members about this and he told me it was because people were having sex in the dorms, and that's why they chose to remove one of the blinds... But I still think the blinds should cover your bed space entirely. Washrooms were also extremely hot - I started sweating as soon as I got out of the shower. Nonetheless, I would happily stay here at Lub D again if I'm ever back in the Makati area.

I know Lub D Hostel chain since I've been stayed in their hostel in Silom area, Bangkok. So, overall I already know how was their service. This one in Makati is one of the best hostel I've ever stayed. Good price, good location (sevel & mini shop around & lots of resto too), dorm room is quite spacious, bed really comfortable with a curtain. shared bathroom (male & female separately) were clean. common room is quite spacious. staff were very friendly and they reply to your emails really fast. oh, they let me still using the shower even I already check out and waiting for my night flight. Salamat po for your hospitality... Regards from Indonesia : )

We've spent only one night in here, to wait our flight for the next day. We were both shocked how cool the hotel is. The room was very stylish, the 2nd floor board games, pooltable and the coffee area was enjoyable. It was my second time in Manila in the last month, and the first hotel that I've stayed was at the same price but way lower quality compared to Lub D. I'm not a reviewer guy, but since I was pretty impressed and I wanted to share this.
I LOVE LUB D”
This hostel's location is great for solo travelers, couples and families. the rooms and cleanliness as well as the staff standard is world class. I just wish I was able to join the Pub Crawl during the stay. Being a fan of staying in hostels this made me proud as a pinoy to come across and stay at Lub D Philippines. When the opportunity and need came I have booked my family to stay at the hostel. Thank you Lub D!
Dear Rocel, Happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. When the pandemic is over and the government restrictions have been lifted, we also hope to organize social activities for our guests. Thank you and until your next Lub d trip, Josephine Tayao Front Office Manager
5 nights with additional 1 more night stay were awesome!!”
I didn't regret my choice to stay in Lub D hotel in Makati City (Poblacion). Everything we had experienced here were truly good memories to keep in our hearts. I read almost all the Agoda reviews which really help me to choose this hotel. I found out what they had commented are true! Thank you guys! I'll surely recommend this hotel to my friends and families. Definitely will stay here again in the future. Good job to the hotel management!
Excellent! My go-to hostel in Makati!”
My stay at Lub D was so great! I stayed there one night before I flew out of NAIA the next day and this hostel exceeded my expectations. The photos online and list of amenities match what you will see in person. The room was clean and perfect for my needs. It was great that they had 24 staff in the lobby because I wanted to buy a snack at 2 AM and I was able to! Everyone was very friendly. Check-in and check-out were fast and efficient. It is within walking distance to some great restaurants. My fiance and I personally ate at Cosmic that night for dinner and we were able to walk there and back within 4 minutes. I felt safe and well taken care of. Thank you Lub D!
Best Hostel I have stayed in!”
This space is too short for me to put in my whole review. But you may checkout my page in FB and Instragram: @travelsofadeadpoet for the detailed review. Overall, For a dorm room bed whose price was around P700, I definitely got my money’s worth for an overnight stay at the heart of Makati! Thank you Lub D! I’ll see you soon!
Dear Maria, Thank you for taking your time to write us a review. We are ecstatic that you found Lub d Philippines Makati as the Best Hostel you've stayed in. We aim to please all of our guest as we strive for excellence. Looking forward to welcome you back soon. Cheers, Noel Madlangbayan Marketing Executive
I've stayed in Lub D last year. I liked the place so I recommended it when me and my family visited Manila. My siblings loved the vibe - the fun common area, the hip resto at the rooftop, the loft style beds. The rooms were clean, had the essentials you would expect, and a lot of outlets, which let's admit is very essential for millennials with several gadgets. The location is perfect - close to restos, a mall, a Catholic church, banks, etc. The staff are always happy to help. Thank you Lub D. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful room! Big Bed!”
This is by far one of the best places we've stayed at in manila :) Really love the ambiance and the big bed in our. We've booked a room here a couple of times and when I was traveling solo, I got to stay in one of their dorm style rooms. Best dorm room ever! Wifi is also consistent and fast compared to other hotels we've stayed in Manila. 1000000% recommend Lub D.. Although the location is a bit.......... I'll stop right here. Experience it yourself :D
It was a great experience! Would definitely come back here when traveling with family or friends. Love the comfort, the beds, and the game zone. The staffs were very courteous. Would definitely recommend Lub d Makati Philippines! Can you guys branch out to Cebu as well. 😊

Lub D Makati is one of the best options to stay in if you want to roam around Metro Manila. It's located near the Poblacion area where there are lots of amazing food options, nightlife and malls. I recommend this hostel to any solo traveller out there who are looking for cheap and comfortable accommodation.
Ladies dorm room one of the best I've been to”
If there's some last minute things I need to do in Makati, I always choose the Ladies dorm room of Lub D. The dorm rooms are clean and spacious and you still feel some privacy. The location is excellent since you are near a mall, restaurants, and convenient stores. Their restaurant serves delicious food and I like the cozy atmosphere and good views. The only downside is the shared toilets and bathrooms --- sometimes, it's not kept clean and some fixtures are already broken (since there are multiple people using the area at the same time) but overall, it's still well-maintained.
Thank you so much, Ms. Hsia, for sharing your feedback. We are happy that you loved our ladies dorm. Your reported concern on cleanliness of the bathroom and toilets will be handled accordingly. We look forward to welcoming you back again! Happy holidays! Josephine Tayao Front Office Manager
Excellent customer service and cozy rooms”
Our stay at Lub D was very satisfactory! I'd recommend Lub D for group staycations! A few notes from our stay: - Very accommodating and friendly staff: The staff will greet you enthusiastically immediately upon arrival, and they're really accommodating. - Comfortable beds: The beds were very comfortable to sleep in, and the sheets were cozy - Very clean and well-lit: The room was very clean, and the glass let in plenty of sunlight in the day time - Neat tiny bathroom: The bathroom, although not too big, was pretty and clean
3rd Stay.. Still Hands Down my Favorite Hostel in the City”
This was my 3rd stay in Lub D and I still can't get over how lucky am I that I have found it. Check-in was a breeze, facilities and rooms are all in order, staff was great as usual! I had a friend with me when I was checking in and I showed off the hostel to her including the dorm bathrooms. She too was from South Manila and figured she could have stayed there with me if only she brought clothes and her laptop that she needed for work the next day. She was truly impressed by the hostel especially with their rates. I can't wait for the bar at the rooftop to be opened soon. I will come back for the 4th and it will definitely not be the last time!
