The staffs are very friendly and helpful. You can ask for advice regarding the place of interest n Manila & how to go there. The hotel is near to Guadalupe MRT Station & you can go there using Jeepney with price of 80 php. The room is clean and the breakfast is provided. Overall, had a nice experience staying here.

The room is not too crowded as there are 4 beds in each one and you keep some privacy thanks to the curtains. You can... More

The bathroom is very small but has a hot shower. Breakfast was served very quickly, was rice and a sausage and egg. Went to catch the... More

Staff are all helpful and quite friendly. If the owner of the hotel, spend more money in fixing the lounge area at the rooftop, then I think, the hostel is... More
