Located right in the middle of Manila's touritic Makati disctrict. This friendly and cozy social hostel has a relaxed yet social atmosphere. It features a small common area, a communal kitchen! It offers Plenty of tour options and the staff are just wonderful and helpful.

Early check in was 200 per head. We shared the room with two other guests us in the upper bunks. Each bunks has it's own socket....

The staff at MNL are great - a couple took me out for dinner at a local restaurant. Afterwards, we sat outside with a whole bunch of people from the hostel having drinks and a couple of the guys got the guitar out for some tunes. What proceeded was a wild Manila night out - one that I will never...

Best thing about MNL hostel was the very helpful and knowledgeable staff that helped me plan my day trips and always had good suggestions. Clean beds but not the best bathrooms. Walking distance from a lot of good food!

I study in Manila so I often book hotel rooms for 2 to 4 nights if needed. I was on a very tight budget when I came across this hostel that offers a bed and free breakfast for P600, imagine! They gave me a room for 4 people where I met a renowned Geologist from Czech Republic. I love their...

The MNL hostel has the best staff i've encountered so far. Real helpful if you have any questions. Spent a couple of nights drinking with them and going out. The hostel itself is nice and cozy, rooms are tidy and the facilities are cleaned often. There's a night/food market just a minute away which serves nice food.

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
