Too expensive and too uncomfortable. The room was too cold even though lowering the temperature saves money. The breakfast had too much sugar- fruits and bread- and no protein, Extra charge for eggs even though eggs are cheaper than fruits. Extra charges for extra linen. Too expensive to do Laundry. Nice lounge and separate area for smokers. Wireless internet not... More

Some senior staff recognize me since I return to this hostel almost once a year and stay for about a week each time I visit. Great customer service, they know everything about the city, tours, activities, schedules, directions, you name it. Facilities are clean and complete. there is a kitchen with a fridge, microwave, plates, pans, etc. A spacious common... More

While I was out for the day I put my passport and credit card in the dorm locker (locked with own combination padlock) and when I came back at the end of the day it was all gone. The staff were useless and didn't seem alarmed. I filed a police report but received no compensation whatsoever from the hostel. I... More

Hi Kelly, We are sorry to hear about this incident happening to you. Please note that we investigated this issue thoroughly, hence the delay in response to you the following day. At this stage, you had already checked out. The manager also remained calm, as there is no point in panicking in such situations. As a result of your incident,... More

I arrived in Manila and with nowhere to stay, I decided to spend more and stay at this hostel based off of recommendations of fellow travelers I met in the area. I'm happy I did and met a handful of cool backpackers whilst here. It's a bit more expensive than other places in the area but I think it's worth... More

This is a good hostel that's not too far from the airport and buses etc. we use it as a stopover in Manila (ideally we spend as little time in the city as possible). The common room area is good and the staff are very helpful. The showers and toilets are good and have hot water. The free breakfast is... More

Hi there, Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a great review. Unfortunately, we have tried out best with different companies for our wifi to connect consistently and it seems that the companies are just not reliable here in Manila. We are always on the lookout though, for other providers. We hope to have this issue resolved... More

Great hostel to meet people. Very clean, hot water. A/c lounge area with TV and separate smoking area. Clean kitchen. Staff are all super friendly. Price is a little high and you can find cheaper, however they do do everything right. My only gripe is the breakfast that's included is really not good. If this is sorted it would get... More

We stayed in a two bed room shared facility. It was clean, as were the bathrooms, but at $50 a night, was vastly overpriced. The Go hotel chain has real rooms for less than half that price. No service, no tourist information that was useful, nothing.

Thanks for writing us a review and sad to hear that you thought we were over priced and received no customer service. Although, I am not too sure where $50 came from as our most expensive room comes down to $38 at most. As for the service, I am sure if you approached the staff and asked a few questions... More

I was a bit skeptical when i was told we were staying in a hostel. But 'Where 2 Next' has changed my views on them. Great friendly staff who were keen to help and great facilities. This hostel was close to shopping malls and other bars and clubs. I would definitely go back there again!
