“Great stuff, stuffy rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Our melting pot was a fairly decent place to stay in Manila. Localised in the centre of Makati, up a rather dingy stairway on the fourth floor (lift broken). We stayed in a double without bathroom which basically had a bed as nothing else could fit in the room. Windows did not open, but I guess that's normal in Manila and the aircon gave off a rather fungi odour. The breakfast was included in the price and was nice. The highlight to our stay were the friendly staff who provided us with invaluable information (a lot has changed since the last LP has been published) and an opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Bathrooms were clean.

Stayed for one night in a double en suite room. Bathroom was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Staff was super helpful when we asked for directions and other touristy stuff. Free breakfast is pretty good too!

We didn't like that the windows in the room could not be opened, but that's a minor issue. Also, there was a noisy pop up market playing loud music across the street, that didn't bother me but could bother other people.

I would go back anytime, it was a nice place to stay.

Decent hostel. Good location. But the best part is the women who runs it. So SO SOOOO helpful. It was her birthday when I was there and she hosted a party and got us all pizza, ice cream etc etc! Great atmosphere. The city isn't great - so it's nice to have a homely place to relax in

We stayed only for one night. We came late and left early. When we arrived people were singing karaoke in the next room. Hostel was quite clean and nice-looking. The window was leaking so our bed was wet and in the morning there was no water, but during the trip we realized that that happens a lot. The staff was very friendly (one of the friendliest).

We travelled July 2012.

Excellent location, close to many eateries..Room was clean & comfortable....Very friendly and helpful staffs.Good breakfast too....
Only issue was that the hostel is situated in the 4th floor with NO Lifts..need to climb stairs with luggages. Other than that, everything was good in this hostel.

I am writing from my room at 3:06 am! Since 22:00 pm there are about 6 people sitting in the dining room in front of our room haveing discussions about the world of football. I was cimplaining at 1:30 am and still no one cares. Everything is very good here, but if you want to sleep by night, you better choose an other place!

The hostel is easy to find, the staff is very friendly and helpful and its clean, quiet and beds are comfortable. There is enough hot water for everyone. One day I had to leave early and they even prepared breakfast for me before it officially starts. Free computer use, wifi works good. Would stay there again!
