Beds are good and all. Free use of locker. Staff are attentive. Not really located near the best places. but jeepneys can get you to makati (business and lifestyle area ) at around 20 minutes. Good thing it is only a short walk to guadalupe metro train station. Breakfast included is poor. Dont expect much.

I stayed here for 8 days in December. It was a real budget hostel and I would love to recommend this place to any travellers. I bet you might be disappointed with this hostel IF you have too much expectation for a budget place. So, stop dreaming. The hostel was located at the roadside, just across a caltex station, so...

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

Thank you for the feedback. The surrounding area is actually very safe. In fact we are also right beside one of the lush mall here in manila called Rockwell Mall. We are also a few meters away from the police station. So nothing to worry. 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.
