Good atmosphere, friendly staff, mostly a younger crowd staying here, nice well-thought out design, clean, bright, good location and price, wifi, lockers in the dorm rooms. This place has everything you want. I was most impressed by the fact that I left my stuff there for 5 days and it was all there when I returned. I was least impressed... More

MNL Boutique Hostel is the one!! After travelling Cebu and Boracay for a week, we were not too keen to come to Manila, we figured that we shoulda stayed longer on the beach, but to our surprise, MNL in Makati really showed us a great time. Small but really homely and our favourite stay in Philippines by far. Really homely... More

The location is what I liked best with this hostel. They are a stone throw away from A.Venue Mall, coffeeshops, ATMs, 7-11 nearby. There's also a good barbecue resto in the same block, noodle resto and Gilligan's on main road where you can get cheap San Mig beer. It's only mins leisure walk towards Greenbelt , major shopping mall and... More

Small but mighty. I really enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and how the crews were playing music with guests by the road in the evenings. They provide towel (in my mind not every hostel does) and really prompt to every queries. Around the corner there is A.venue Mall where there are aplenty of restaurants and bars, 7-11 etc. For the ladies,... More

It was my first time to stay in a hostel in Makati and I'm so happy I chose MNL Boutique Hostel! I stayed in a 4-bed female dormitory on the 2nd floor and I had awesome roommates as a bonus.

First let me say that I'm not a hostel guy, in fact it's my first time in a budget accommodation when traveling, but due to circumstances I ended here... And I feel it's great! Maybe some experienced backpackers feel there's something missing or it could be better... But for a first timer... Place is clean enough, showers work, bed is... More

Stayed here for a night and I could already totally tell that MNL has lived up to my expectation. On the outside, it just looks like a simple purple house that basically converted into a hostel but really quite huge and cozy inside. I stayed in an 8- bed dorm mixed. I find it spacious, clean and pleasantly smell. Bed... More

This is such a great hideaway in Manila, somewhere to go and relax in a nice area after a day in the busy city! We met some nice people in the hostel.
