I initially plan to stay for one week @ MNL Boutique Hostel but ended up extending until the end of the duration of my 2 week trip to Manila due to it’s excellent, attentive & friendly staff, with neat, tidy rooms & shared facilities consistently with the housekeeping service.
A great location right next to A-Venue Mall & as well as an open market at night time where so you can simply sit & relax, choose to have dinner & try the different local exquisite cuisine on offer at a fraction of a price whilst enjoying listening to different bands playing every night and get the real feeling of mixing with the locals.
MNL boutique hostel is no exception in comparison to other good hotels with regards to security being taken seriously although the area is safe. I often, went out till the early hours of the morning & walked back to the hostel with no hassle.
Walking a bit further along Makati Avenue brings you to the huge upmarket Ayala Greenbelt 5 & Glorietta shopping malls & restaurants & bars though you will have to take the underpass to get across the road.
The resident managers Celina, Maica & Gonz were exceptionally efficient and helpful. The upkeep of the MNL Boutique Hostel property and the efficiency and friendliness of all the staff is testimony to their good management & will no doubt be the one of the choices of accommodation for me the next time I visit Manila. Highly recommended for free-spirited like-minded travellers looking for alternative & affordable accommodation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- MNL Boutique Hostel is a project of backpackers and well traveled friends that aims to showcase Filipino culture and hospitality in a clean, wholesome and welcoming environment.At MNL, we make sure that when you visit, it's like coming home to an old friend or reconnecting with a family member. We like sharing our stories and we'd also love to hear yours too -- perhaps over a cold bottle of San Miguel Beer.We believe that there is more to Manila than just a jump off point to the islands, that's why we make it a point to give our guests a memorable experience at the hostel.We added a "boutique" to our name because we believe that traveling on a budget does not mean that you have to let go of your comforts. At the same time, art pieces at the hostel depict a story that is truly Filipino -- from pop icons and national heroes to pieces of furniture to hand woven blankets by indigenous tribes.Lastly, we believe that there is nothing more comforting for a traveler in a foreign land than to meet a fellow traveler or to link with a local with the same interests. More than just a place to sleep, this camaraderie is what we build at MNL. ... more less
