It's always more fun in Philippine. Hilik hostel is on best and main location. Hotels and clubs are nearby. All restaurants are along makati road. Hostel condition is also good. I stayed there 5 nights and enjoyed my best time. Management is very friendly. I am again going to stay next month.

Double room with shared bathroom. People should bear in mind that this is a hostel not a hotel or guest house. Therefore, the public areas may be busy and it offers a backpackers' atmosphere. Staff is friendly and guests are too.

The hostel is in the heart of Makati so you have shops, bars and everything you need just steps away. It has nice rooms, good breakfast in the morning and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The only bad thing is that the rooms that face the street are very loud as there are many clubs around. Just avoid... More

This is my second stay here. I've seen that they made some improvements in the hostel. But since there is an ongoing construction, it was quite difficult to get a good sleep. One thing that caught my attention is the staff. The front desk staff rarely smiles although he is helpful enough. Then there is this other staff who keeps... More

I needed a place to stay near my office for a few hours rest. This is my 1st hostel stay and I think I expected too much basing on the pictures posted online about this hostel.

We checked into the Hilik and once shown to our room, (Number 3) we instantly noticed the sound of traffic in our rooms and the very loud air-con unit. We thought the traffic would ease at night so just dismissed it and headed out. Well after 2 nights and 3 hours sleep we demanded a refund. This place is terrible... More

Its clean, friendly enough. The shared bathrooms are good (shame the private rooms dont have private bathroom - they should for the price I think). The breakfast sucks.

“All dorm rooms are the same. If you want privacy get the room for two which is a little pricier than the dorm beds. But I believe all rooms have the same level of noise from the busy streets outside.”
