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. Maybe we were unlucky with the annoying partying Canadians who were playing incredibly loud music on their portable speakers 24/7 in the... More

This is a great hostel. Very friendly staff and sociable atmosphere. The common areas and dorms are nice. Breakfast is better than average for a hostel and includes a variety of fruit as well as bread and other things. You can order eggs for a fee. Good TV area and outside lounge. The dorm rooms are good and considering the... More

I stayed two nights here and the accommodation is Okay. A couple of cockroaches in the bathroom but otherwise is fairly clean. The hostel is loaded with people so good opportunity to meet and share travel stories/ideas.

We where coming from not that enjoyable nights in hard mattresses so when we arrived here it was heaven!
