I stayed here for 7 days at the end of January and I felt so at home. The staff was very kind and helpful and the amenities were always clean. Great value for money and the attractions are within a reasonable distance by jeepney, taxis and train. Definitely a great value for money. Hey Rose :):)

Basically I like this hostel and if I return to Manila, I may stay there again. However, I had had a bit trouble until I checked in. When I arrived at the hostel at around 9 PM. The receptionist was sleeping and the front door was locked. I was seriously afraid that I had to stay out overnight. Fortunately, the... More

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.

I stayed there for nearly 1 month as I was looking for a flat near Ortigas. The place is clean, well maintained, near MRT and shopping malls. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is included. 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

Staff were very helpful. There are maps on the wall. The location is close to trains, buses and Jeepneys. Caught a bus and jeepney to the airport and it costs 31 pesos all up. 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
