I was looking for friendly's guesthouse and discovered that it has changed it's name and ownership. No regrets for the guest house has been newly renovated under german management. Everything is clean and the mattresses, etc are brand new. Just perfect for a much needed rest. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in any situation. Their terrace lounge is... More

It is named now WANDERERS GUEST HOUSE. All the rooms are very clean with new high quality mattresses and bedsheets. The service is great and the new staff is... More

Very hard to choose a place when searching online. I chose this place and I regretted it. The guy on reception was nice enough but the rooms were terrible. We had a private room which had a terrible damp smell. The plastic bits in the AC which help you direct the air were gone so it just blasted us in... More

Good cleanliness, average location 30 mins from airport. Rooms are what you would expect. Staff weren't very helpful in telling one half of our group we weren't there which set off all kinds of trouble and there was no apologies. If going again alone I would stay there but not in a group

I don't normally write reviews but my experience of friendlys was awful. The rooms themselves are basic which I have no problem with. But when you must store your bag under a bed which probably hasn't seen a duster in a millennium then I'm not impressed. I had to ask twice to get bins changed in the toilet. As part... More

I think most of the visitors to the Phillipines avoid Manila as much as they can. Price for a private double bed room with or without private showers and bathroom is pretty steep, seeing as the whole building is rather dirty, old and smelly. Me and my girlfriend spent most of the time watching movies and visiting the adjacent Robinson's... More

One of my friends was attacked by bed bugs and there is no blanket provided in the dorm. The other down side of this guesthouse was all electronic gadgets including smartphone, laptops are not allowed to be charged inside the room and being requested to charge at the front desk. The location is strategic, not far from Robinsons Place Mall... More

Good location and nice common rooftop to meet people, but the rooms aren't so good. Very small with no furniture, and worst of all... really smelly! The mattresses really need a good cleaning because every room smells of old sweaty socks. The toilet could use a scrub too.

great location for doing site seeing as a lift off point, but i would not make this my choice of staying, the place is very run down and reception is hard to track down at the best of time. Stinky rooms stained mattresses, the staff are knowledgeable about place in manila aside from the l local tourist trail. I would... More
