a gem of a hostel”
friendly and attentive staff; very clean and tasteful interiors; nearness to places of interest
It was very good overall. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The interior was a pleasant surprise; you wouldn't guess from the lobby that the inside is very homey and tastefully decorated. Location was very convenient too. You could walk to the historic Malate Church, Robinson's Mall, and famous dining places (Aristocrat, Cafe Adriatico, etc). The breakfast though could be improved :)

Location, Friendly & Helpful Staff, & Value...
We have been Customers for three Manila Visits. This is our fourth stay and there ONLY issue we had were the 'Bed Bugs', which attacked the first night there. At first we thought the bites were Mosquitoes, which the Staff readily treated our room - #110. Later on we realized they were 'Bed Bugs' , of which Complete Treatment of the room needed to be made. We do hope the Management will read this and remedy the issue, before we return to Manila.

Lovely staff, too bad about the hotel.”
Staff, flexible attitude and helpfulness
I found the hotel to be badly dated and came to know what is meant by the reference "gray towels". However the staff were wonderful and you could not find any fault in their attitudes, helpfulness and flexibility. I arrived late and needed to get a late checkout - 6.00pm so that I could get some sleep after flying all night to attend a conference in the morning. No problem and a reasonable extra payment. Thanks. Did notice a chemical smell in the afternoon which was enough to cause me to cough quite a bit. A little noisy but once I laid down I was asleep in moments. Hard to rate but a rough idea is 5 star staff in a 2 star hotel. Probably would look elsewhere next time.

Small but convinient hotel in city center”
Good location, quiet room and supportive staffs
This hotel is located in a busy district of malate but it's very quiet and peaceful inside the hotel. It's very conviniet that we can reach many shops and restaurants at robinsons manila in a walking distance. All of staffs were very friendly and supportive. i had a good sleep on a comfortable bed in a quiet room. we had some minor trouble wid internet connection during this stay.

good hotel but with a let down.”
good internet, safe and secure, value for money.
Great hotel, excellent value for money. Only let down was the fact that the room I booked with Agoda I was told was unavailable by hotel staff. I think they told me this to save me changing rooms as I was already staying there when I booked with Agoda, which is cheaper than booking direct with hotel.

hotel is great, but.....”
good wifi in room, very clean throughout, very safe and secure
Why is this place called a "hostel"? It is a good hotel worthy of 3 stars and at a price that is hard to beat. My gripe is....First day I did not book with Agoda, staff told me only room available was a very good room but more pricey than my first two options. I took it anyway then once in room I looked on Agoda and found they were advertising the cheaper rooms that I wanted and was told was unavailable. So next day I booked through Agoda, saved some money but was again told the type of room was unavailable so had to stay in twin and not double. I am pretty sure on both occasions the rooms I wanted were available as it never appeared very busy and I could see many empty rooms when they were being cleaned. So, a real let down on that side of things. But, it really is a great option if a good, clean, safe hotel is needed in Malate.

A pleasant surprise”
Spotless, excellent staff
I was mightily impressed the moment I walked in. The staff were courteous and very helpful. The male attendant at reception eagerly helped us with our bags much to my relief. When we saw the room, I was just blown away. I didn't expect to have that at the price I paid. It was just an excellent stay. I was sad that we had to leave the next day. I will surely come back in the future.

Central position
stayed in de-luxe room. only 2 blocks from robinsons mall and in centre of malate.staff very polite and rooms clean. only a small coffee lounge with limited meal menu, more like snacks and not cheap. the name hostel is mis-leading as it is a 4 star hotel and used for training hospitality staff so is always very clean.

Good location, shabby rooms”
Near the bars and mall
Based near the Robinson Mall in Malate the hotel is also close to the numerous gay bars and clobs in the area. The staff are friendly and welcoming. There is no safe in the room but a secure box behind the front desk. The junior suite was large but in need of an overhaul. The bathroom cabinet doors were being held together by tape and there was mold on the back of the door. The room itself was clean and we slept well but could definitely do with a re-fit. However for the price it was OK and I would consider staying here again for the location.

Clean, Beautiful rooms. Very good Internet
I stayed 4 Days. Internet was very important for me. Hotel is a good recommendation. Service available 24/7. Nice people. The rooms are beautiful. Absolutely quiet! The area around is, well..., downtown Metro Manila ... many bars, shopping facilities, cafes. It is not a beach resort but to my opinion absolutely worth its money. Especially when you need internet.

What a great hotel. Should be rated as 4 star. Only 4 years old and impeccable foyer and rooms. Full size bath, huge vanity and bathroom, king size bed , cable tv, good airconditioning, very helpul, happy and obliging staff whp speal English fluently. Nothing is a problem. Breakfast is normal for Asia, small with choice of American, Continental or Phillipino for 180pesos. Only 300 metres from Robinson's mall and about 30 minutes from Airport. Airport taxis will charge 700 peso but from hotel to airport is only 350peso. An absolute whiz of a hotel (not hostel) and very highly recommended.
This is the best kept secret in Manilla. Absolutely a gem of a hotel. Don't be confused by the name. It is not a Hostel in any shape or form. The staff are delightful, the rooms are huge with king-size bed, cable TV, mini bar (reasonable prices)and immaculate housekkeeping. Fluent English speaking staff are a change in Manilla as most think they can speak but listening is usually difficult, not here. Breakfast is not included with the Junior Suite rate but as breakfast is only 180 peso it is worth taking this room at the same rate as a lesser room with breakfast included.Very highly recommended and rate as 4 star.

Classy Hostel”
Friendliness, cleaniness, beautifully decorated.
It will be good if they provide hair dryer. It's not a neccessity, just a suggestion
It took quite some time to find this place actually, we walked & asked for directions and most ppl were not that helpful. By then, 4 of us were sweaty, dusty, tired and moody. I guess finally spotting that hotel can be compared with finding an oasis in a desert :D Much to our surprise, it was a cosy hostel, decorated like a hotel. Friendly staffs they have. In 10 mins, we were settled in our rooms. Furnished beautifully too with comfortable beds, a fridge, huge wardrobe, and clean toilet. Just what we need :) Did i mention that the hostel has lotsa sitting area, classy decorations. Certainly camera friendly too. It's very near to Robinson's Shopping mall. Just a 5-10 mins walk. So does transportation, LRT, MRT. Very convenient if u plan to travel to other sight seeing spots or shopping malls like sm mall & greenhill. We will be going back again, when we happen to be in Manila.
