Liked: big locker

Disliked: pretty much all of it, disgusting dirty rooms, loud, the communal area was rented out to private parties which were very loud all night long so you had to stand in the hallways and you couldn't sleep, The staff were about as helpful as clear paint, if you asked where to eat they told you to get takeaway food, I only realised there was some nice places nearby in the taxi on the way to the airport. The staff in general didn't have a clue and were rude. I would not stay at this hostel

Liked: It is close to the MRT line and walking distance to the fort strip (where there are nice restaurants and bars etc.). The staff are generally helpful and it is fairly clean as hostels go. The wifi is good too.

Disliked: The skylounge is a good place to meet people and cool down (there is always a strong breeze up there). But I think they could make more of the space. If they could make it feel more like a bar, with better seating and a wider range of drinks, I think it would be a much better place to hang out. Very minor thing.

Liked: Love this place! There reception and common area are on a great rooftop, where gives you quite a nice view of the neighbourhood. Common area is very cozy and warm, the staff must have put some thoughts to it. Drinks and snack is provided, which is really nice. The staff is super helpful and nice!!! We arrived there early morning so couldn't check in yet. After we came back from lunch, we found the staff waited for us to check in first because they said we arrived the first. They gave us detailed information on all kinds of things.

Disliked: The location is in Makati area, which is ok. But it's not too close to the MRT station as I imagined. It takes 15min walk there, yet there's almost no pavement, cars pass by very closely, air highly polluted,

Liked: Not much in terms of the facility but the basic ones for a budget hotel such as comfortable beds, spacious rooms, wifi, location are perfect. What I love about this hotel is the staff they are very friendly and always smiling as if ready to help you; they answer all your questions like where to go what to do travel reservation etc. Indeed, I had a pleasant stay and will love to stay again when I'm in Manila.

Disliked: The signage is pretty small they should make it bigger! :)
