“Nice hostel. Tidy, clean and bright!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We were exhausted after travelling for two days non stop! We arrived at Hilik and felt really comfortable. The hostel is located on the centre of Makati near shops and malls. Rooms are full of light and clean. Common areas such as lounge and toilets are also very clean and tidy. Staff is always open to help and friendly. Free breakfast available.
I would recommend this hostel to any traveller!! :)

Hello Travelers,

I've been to Hilik Hostel twice, first time in Jan 2013 and the other in August 2013! I love that the hostel is centrally located in Makati's Business District, Malls are very near, popular food spots and grocery stores/sari sari places are conveniently just steps away.

I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the entire hostel, nice inviting rooms, comfortable beds, very well kept washrooms and a great sized common area. The staff at Hilik were excellent! Very accommodating to my needs, my reservations have always consisted of a large number of ppl and the Hilik staff were always on top of making sure they had space for us. (Rooms can be catered to a single bed to 8pax). Much thanks to Donna C, Kristine M and Diana C for making our stay memorable and thanks to the rest of the Hilik group!

I would definitely come back to Hilik during my next visit to the Philippines and will recommended Hilik Hostel to friends and family.

Salamat Po,

Team Canada

Room Tip: Makati Ave is a very busy street throughout the entire day. If youre looking for a good nights rest...

Just right! Clean rooms, great location, friendly helpful staff, and great value!
I stayed in Hilik early 2014 when visiting friends and catching up on Manila night life. Hilik was an easy choice as I felt safe and comfortable in the neat clean rooms in a relaxed hostel feel... Staff were helpful and friendly. Recommend Hilik for single travellers, small groups, just about anyone really. Great value and friendly personal feel.

Room Tip: call Hilik or put in a request when booking a room

It was a nice, clean and well maintained hostel. Clean and comfortable beds for a good night's sleep. Free breakfast, free wifi and friendly and accommodating staffs completed our memorable stay. The location is just across the A.Venue Mall which made it really easy for us to have a quick booze after a long and tiring day. Something that they could improve on is there reservation scheme. Didn't really understood why one of my friends didn't had a reservation but we were all booked in one reservation maybe it had an automatic cancellation when he booked for an extension from a different reservation website. But overall i really liked my stay here in the hostel.

The most immaculate hostel I have ever stayed at. Great value for money, helpful and attentive staff, great location and cleaner and more hygienic than most 4-5* hotels!! Free breakfast and no curfew either.

Room Tip: Private or dorms, you will definitely recommend to friends and happily stay again.

Had a great stay at Hilik Hostel!!! Donna is amazing and so helpful, even took us to the seafood market (for free) where we had a most amazing meal together. Aside from Donna being so kind, fun, and helpful, the hostel is kept very clean and is safe and secure. All of Makati and Manila are easily accessible by public transport and much of the best night life, restaurants, bars, some museums and a very large mall with about anything you could want to buy are all within a ten minute walk. Definitely recommend staying here, great place to make your first stop in the Philippines. Donna can give you many ideas of where to go from here.
