“Excellent service and great view!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Probably the only hostel I know of with owners who actually take the time to make sure your stay there is memorable. Also the view from the roof deck is wonderful, especially at night when the Makati and Fort skyline is lit up. This hostel is also kept very clean, a very huge plus.

The only drawback I can think of is the limited parking and the confusing Manila roads which may make getting there a bit challenging to those not familiar with the area. Aside from that though, no complaints whatsoever!

There are very, very few hostels in Manila, leaving young travelers and backpackers strapped for options. Enter Our Awesome Hostel and look no further. Just a stone-throw away from the cosmopolitan heart of Fort and Makati where you'll find everything, and I mean everything (shopping, bars, restaurants, museums, business, malls, spas), OAH is a spotless and affordable accommodation offering comfortable dorms that are of fair quality in every way.

Other than the location, clean spaces, friendly staff and good rates, the best part about the place is really the vibe and getting to meet people from all over the world. I happened to stay here on a Friday night when a bash was taking place on the roofdeck and all the guests were invited to drink some beers and wine with the very outgoing owners and their array of local/foreign friends.

I always say that one of the best things about the Philippines is the people's warmth and openness to making new friends. Get a taste of what that means when you stay at Our Awesome Hostel. The owners really take pride in their hostel and they organize other activities to reach out and help guests enjoy Manila the best way possible.

Very very nice Hostel. The owner's make you feel that you're personally taken care of. I must say that there's nothing like it yet in Manila. Conveniently located in between Makati and the Fort, the location allows you to see Modern Manila in a day. I highly recommend this for visiting tourists.

This hostel is strategically located in Fort, Makati and Rockwell. It comes with a splendid view of the city, a roof top to enjoy the tropical weather, friendly staff and good security. Parking is available if one wants to take some friends over to the roof top. The best Pubs and Clubs in the city are a few minutes walk. The best rated restaurants are also located nearby. Whether you fancy having japanese, Mexican, Spanish, Filipino, Thai cuisine, the location has it all! Taxis are easily accessible as well as shopping centres.
