    I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed my stay. Top bunks do get a little warm since AC doesn't flow to them usually, but that's pretty typical, and the individual fan helped. I slept very well both nights. French toast was an amazing breakfast. Washrooms are quite warm, however. If you need somewhere to stay in Manila, this is a good place.

Friendly staff and front desk. Be reminded, the toilet near padre faura single room. Shower is not functioning well.

    The place is clean, great staff tho haven't had enough time to stay in the hostel. I literally stayed there for the bed and hot shower. Always out for important appointments. And not far from the airport, LRT Station (Pedro Gil). Away from Metro so it's okay. Showers need to be fixed. (The showerhead almost fell on me) So far one shower is okay for females. Hot shower, working 👌

    the staff is very accomodating. i stayed here for a couple of days and for a solo traveller, i admit i feel at ease staying in Tambayan Hostel. i feel very welcomed and taken care of in the duration of my stay. whenever i have excursions to the city, my first choice to stay in Manila is this hostel. i think this was my third time. and will definitely go back, if i needed to find a place to stay. a very trustworthy hostel, for me!

    (1) LOCATION: in Makati next to Robinson Mall & 4 blocks from the bay. (2) SPRING Mattesses, not foam mattresses. (3) Lots of PRIVACY: curtains, own lamp and fan and outlet. (4) CUSTOM BUILT bed frames. Solid. Sturdy. No squeaks. Best hostel in Manila. Too bad there isn't much to do in Manila. Traffic is so so bad that I dare not venture about the city. Pilipinos need to get their act together. Thais and Filipinos both started their mass transit systems in the 198Os. Bangkok is a world class city now. Manila? It's a hell hole.

    Single room very small, without window and all of them share bathroom but ok for one night. Have nice resto bar on the top but is quiet inside the room. If you go/back to the airport you can take the Robinson super shuttle 150php. It stops in all terminals and is one minute walking.

    Hidden gem in Manila”
    Stayed here for 1 night. Got the capsule for females. The capsule is very nice, quite spacious and comes with own light, fan, exhaust and mirror. I really liked that per capsule room is secured enough with the key cards per guest. I had a nice sleep even though I only have 1 pillow. The shower and bathroom is in front of the room, so it's very accessible. It has 3 toilets and 3 shower area. The toilets are working fine but not all of the showers does. I first went to the farthest shower area and there was no water coming out. I transferred to the first one by the entrance, and it was working. I assumed that the middle shower is the best one because it was always occupied. So I hope they fix that because it's tough if there are too many waiting to shower. But I would come back here again, maybe try their private rooms next time

    Good option!”
    Excellent place with a few options for improvement. - better breakfast (at least spoons, and marmalade) - pisoir for male travelers. - life music too loud to sleep in Bocobo dorm before end of music. Except this its an excellent value for money, like a hotel with dorms. The stuff is very friendly and plenty. Extremly clsan and the capsules are "deluxe plus" with air-con, fan, cloth hook, blinds etc..
