    One Bed in 8-Bed Mixed Dormitory

    Excellent”
    MNL in an unpretentious hostel in an excellent location in Makati. It's quiet inside even though there is a hustle bustle outside. My mattress was soft and the WiFi was excellent. For this price, I expected a cold water shower; I was delighted to find hot water! Other places charge for a towel while MNL provided a towel as a matter of course. The place could be a little cleaner, but for the price, I am not going to complain. My only complaint was the air conditioning. It was turned up far too high and I could not adjust it. That would have been OK if I showed up with a blanket, but I didn't. I couldn't sleep because it was too cold. I recommend you book a fan room if possible or take a private room and control the AC yourself. When I go to Makati the next time, I will buy a cheap throw-away blanket and book myself into MNL.

    The bunkbeds are squeaky and shake with every move, but everything else is awesome. The breakfast is fresh and filling, the staff friendly and helpful and I had great conversations with the fellow guests. There's great food options around the hostel, for all kinds of budgets. Let them explain you how to take one of those funny jeepneys and if you go to intramuros, why not take the ferry in hulo and enjoy the soft breeze and interesting views of Passig river?

    Unfairness of Hospitality”
    Location is perfect - only took less than an hour travel from/to the Airport. Breakfast is okay - nothing special but appreciated. Bed is okay - Foam and Pillow are comfy but the only problem is I'm at the top of the double deck bed - so I felt a lot of movements or it's a quake bed. Showers and CR are good - they have heater / hot shower and Toilet is small but always clean. Staff is okay - They are approachable but the only problem with my case is that I requested to transfer from top bed to a bottom bed and they said they will transfer me to another bed if there's an available bed. So I waited until the last evening of my stay - most of the bed was empty and other room mates (foreigner) were able to transferred to another room but me - I'm still in the same bed coz they said other beds are already reserved for somebody. I felt like there's an unfairness between local guest and foreign guest. I can say that they are more accommodating with foreign guests than than guest.

    The only thing I didn't like during my stay's breakfast, but overall, the place has excellent service and the place is always clean. The hostel also did not prevent me from getting some work done given it's relatively fast wifi and tables available. For 520 pesos, this place's a steal.

    I had a great time meeting with a number of fellow backpackers from around the world. The place is just within the Makati Business District and access to convenience store and food is just within the area. Breakfast is provided and the internet speed is just fine, they have friendly staff to assist you in wherever place in the Philippines you want to visit.

    We enjoyed our stay at the hostel. We only stayed for one night but we had absolutely no problems. Good value for money, good location and phenomenal showers (considering what we had been used to for the previous week at the Rice Terraces in North Luzon). Definitely one of the best hostels we have stayed in on our travels. Strongly recommend it for backpackers.

    Clean, friendly staff, close to supermarket.
    We only stayed here for one night, but if we ever went back to Makati, we would definately stay here again. There are a couple of restaurants within a 5 minute walk, the buffet help-yourself breakfast was nice, and met some lovely fellow travelers. We stayed in a double room upstairs, and it was a little noisy outside the hotel at night. But you do get complimentary ear plugs!

    They need to invest in fragrance and cleaning up. ”
    When I arrived MNL there was a bad smell everywhere. But the staff are very friendly and nice. I was shown to my room and accomodated well. I asked if I need a towel and was told about where to have breakfast. but by the time I went to the bathroom and shower I couldn't barely stand the smell and the bad smell everywhere. It was extremely dirty. The room was nice and safe I was able to sleep very well but some cleaning and perfume and disinfectants around the place would make my stay and othee people's stay much better. I suggest rhe owner monitor their staff and invest not only in providing food and room but also a hygienic place to their customers. Thank you MNL for the safe stay. I hope there will be some improvements in the future. God bless.
