This is an excellent budget option in Manila. Manila we found to be a difficult city at first (for backpackers) because it is expensive and has lots of visible poverty on par with places in North India. Yet W2N we found one of the cheaper places to stay, good value for money and really friendly staff who really helped us... More

...internet connection is terrible which is so frustrating when you are trying to arrange your travelling around the Philippines. Breakfast was nice but the bread really lets it down as it was absolutely shocking. I could not believe that bread of this quality was actually made. We mentioned it to the staff......... Rooms are basic, comfortable and very clean, Ok... More

very near to food establishments. foreigner district. nice murals in every room. the aircon was a bit slow in cooling the room (maybe because it was really really hot in manila lol). The staff are courteous and friendly. Bed is a bit comfy but can do. Easy to find.

Didn't enjoy my one night stay in this hostel. Place was dingy and pretty uninspiring. They actually gave away my bed: I returned after an afternoon in the city to find a family sitting on my bed! Decent WiFi at least.

We were looking for a place to get rid of our jetlag and get away from the busy streets in Manila. We ended up fleeing to those busy streets because the atmosphere in the hotel was even worse.
