“good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

clean, safe and very friendly staff, the breakfast was very good, the Internet was very slow, I had to use my own sometimes, maybe something temporal, because first day was very good. anyway it's a place; highly recommended.

Thanks so much for your review! Apologies for the Wi-Fi connection, as it can be temperamental at times. Despite this, we're glad you had a pleasant stay with us and hope you come visit us again when you're in Manila.

+: Clean room, accommodating staff, self-service breakfast. Helpful information for tours are available in hostel.

Location is dodgy but convenient if you want to visit Intramuros and watch the sunset in the bay, the only two things to do in Manila unless you want to enjoy nightlife, which it's not great either. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm, it was very big, with omfy beds and private toilet. It's also clean. What I liked the most is the common area, it's spacious and has sofas, tables, there's a TV, a kitchen for free use and a chillout area where you can smoke. Breakfast is included but it's a joke, there is not even plain butter to put on your toasts... Regarding the members of the staff, there was only one girl who was actually helpfull and nice, couldn't say the same about the others... Overall, its a nice hostel but it is just way too expensive. I stayed there twice but my third time I went to a better one in Makati.

Thank you for your review. We apologise if you only found one of our staff to be helpful. We will be discussing your response with them and ensure that this does not happen again in the future. With our pricing, we have these prices as we have cleaner and better facilities and definitely higher standards, than what other hostels have to offer in Manila. Despite these issues, we still hope you enjoyed your time with us.

Was only a very brief (12 hour!!) stop overnight befpre flying to Vietnam but really great hostel and I would happily stay here again, Very helpful staff, very very clean dorm room (I think the only hostel I have stayed in 4 months without a single bed bug!), really lovely terrace area for smokers or just to chill out people watching on the street down below- has a really comfy little cushioned area at the end. Very happy with my stay here. Only one very minor issue-the fitting holding the shower head on the wall was broken so had to hold the head when showering.

I very much enjoyed my stay, very friendly staff, it was like I was at home. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to answer any questions that one had. They were always smiling and joking around. Place was very clean.
Breakfast was very good.
I came back from my travels and stayed last night at Where 2 Next before flying back to the UK.

I stopped over here for a couple of nights while in Manila and I can say that this place is clean, the staff are friendly, the wifi is pretty decent (decent enough to stream a movie on my phone with no buffering), the showers are actually properly hot and are seperate from the toilet which is a rare bonus in Asia, however there is only one bathroom each for male/female in the mixed dorm I was in so sometimes had to wait to use it.

The hostel is quite loud out the front from some bar playing music all day but the rooms are in the back so its nice and peaceful for a good nights sleep (except for a rooster occasionally making his presence known) and there is sometimes a lack of toilet paper.

Overall I would definitely stay here again if I am ever in Manila, and would definitely recommend it.

I stayed there for one night and found the staff very helpful. Rooms and common areas were spick spock clean and the breakfast was nice (all kinds of fresh fruit and bread with cheeze whiz and chocolate).They also sell noodle cups so that you can make your own dinner right there at the hostel, there is also a kitchen that you can use. Good location and friendly people!
