I booked this hostel as a convenient stopover for a long transit but it was a huge mistake - and I am very well versed in roughing it for a quick sleep but the location and service were so terrible I couldn't stay. The first problem was finding the place in the dark... it's on a poorly lit side street... More

I stayed here on March 11th,2015.I was very surprised because the room fee has increased.I stayed at the dormitory last year.I payed 350peso per night.But I had to pay 450pesos.I must look for another hostel.I think it's too expensive for the facility such as non-aircon and a bad bed.

This area of manila is hell on earth and the hostel fits in well. The staff in the morning were helpful (lady at night was not!) but the area isnt safe or pleasant. The dorm was very big and there was no lock on the door

If you are on a budget AND feeling adventurous, by all means have a go. I shared the dorm with many (migrant?) workers. The lights were on all night, some were smoking, some were playing cards, no a/c, just a few fans so the windows were wide open on a restless street. Couldn't/didn't close my eyes. I was gone by...

Three things I like about the hostel are its location in the residential area of Baclaran although its close to busy Roxas Blvd; friendly staff; and the atmosphere which is relatively fresh because its a fenced area surrounded by trees which reminds me of my home. It looks more like a big residential house rather than as a hostel. I... More

If you're on a budget, try other hostels. From a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest), I give this old hostel a rate of 3. No wifi. Room's not that clean. The only good thing about this hostel is the accommodating staff. Stayed here for 1 night on Nov. 1, 2013.

Stayed here March to April 2013. I stayed here for two weeks. The place is typical budget hotel where rooms have basic amenities and beds are lined with a foam instead of a mattress. They can be dusty since this hotel is near Baclaran and the main road. Rooms facing the road can be noisy. One very notable incident during... More

I stayed for 2 nights at the ladies dormitory with my friends. Not bad for a price of P270 per person/night. The restroom is relatively clean. The downside though is that it can be hot in the room during summer.Nevertheless, still worth the stay. Not to mention the staff are accomodating.

Booked a dorm bed because the place is close to airport. And it looked quite nice on the pictures at booking.com. But in reality it was not a nice place. Everything is old. The beds were not nice and toilets and showers dirty. It's hot and not enough fans. There's no lockers or even a locker to the room. The... More
