I stayed here for 7 days at the end of January and I felt so at home. The staff was very kind and helpful and the amenities were always clean. Great value for money and the attractions are within a reasonable distance by jeepney, taxis and train. Definitely a great value for money. Hey Rose :):)

Basically I like this hostel and if I return to Manila, I may stay there again. However, I had had a bit trouble until I checked in. When I arrived at the hostel at around 9 PM.

Thank you for the feedback. The surrounding area is actually very safe. In fact we are also right beside one of the lush mall here in manila called Rockwell Mall. We are also a few meters away from the police station. So nothing to worry.
