My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night because we wanted a place that's closed to the airport. I was very surprised at the accommodation. We had to go up a steep flight of stairs, which can be dangerous for older people or those with problems with mobility. There was a toilet in the room, but only for peeing,... More

This is the coolest place in the Philippines! The Japanese owner is super cute. He's an old guy who's been in the Philippines for 30 years. He lives a quiet life running the hostel with his Japanese wife and is a winner. The hostel is pretty horrific. The outside floors are a bit flooded. The bathrooms don't really work, but... More

Place is very clean and good value. Security is good. Washroom is nice, hot water and clean. Owner can come off as rude but I think it's not on purpose as she's very helpful when talking about attractions and always gives approximate prices which helps a ton. There's also cheap breakfast/food available and towels. Good place to spend a night.

no-frill arrangement that charges apparently for everything. however, they had a flexible cancellation policy. was supposed to stay for 2 nights, but stayed for only 1 without having to lose much of my money. the stay was descent, although i think there're places in manila that offer better value for that amount of money.

Only stayed here for one night, before flying to Boracay the next day. It is out of the main part of Manila, though still relatively close to the shops. Not really much of a nightlife scene going on. The room itself was ok, though they do not provide bedsheets or towels. You have to pay extra for them. There is... More

Firstly the room LOOKS clean but once you stay you realise it's infested with Ants. Read other reviews say same. The staff seem friendly enough since I'm Australian but to my partner who is filipina they barely looked at her. So difficult to get in or out not door just gate you must knock with coin or yell out for... More

The hostel is located a bit far from the international airport (around 30min by taxi), but except for it it's quite nice! I stayed both of private room and dormitory. Both were well cleaned. Air conditioner in private room worked with no problem. I felt like shower water pressure was a bit weak and it was hard to get wireless... More

I stayed there for two and two the other nights in the private room. It was very clean and facilities like TV and air conditioner worked well. The hostel is located quite near from the airport and big malls. You can catch zeepney or take a taxi for 100pesos or a little more. The owner of this hostel is kind... More
