          I had a roomie who is staying in the hostel for a month and she had food in the room, kept AC remote for herself and keeps the lights on all the time. Please advise guests upon arrival to be considerate of others. I had a bad experience because of her inappropriate behavoiour in the room. I did inform the reception. Since i stayed for two nights. First night i let her be and second day early morning i had to leave. Hope the management will take actions against guests who doesnt respect the hostel policies. Overall location was good, staffs are very helpful and polite.

          Horrible location, sheet had a "love" stain. Our two single beds was on one double frame. Located in the slums of Pasay.

          Habitación muy básica aunque espaciosa y la cama confortable. Solo te dan una toalla, ni jabón ni papel ni nada más. El baño es común y en el de hombres el calentador estaba roto. Excelente staff y cercanía a la línea de metro LRT 1.
