This is a Trusted Review. Why?
While the staff were friendly and the room was fine, it is a long distance from any sights in Manila. We traveled by taxi, Jeepney, tricyle, bus...you name it every day all over and only returned in the eves. If you stay here- negotiate a price to and from from every cab- but the Jeepney/tricycle route is far cheaper than any taxi or ride the hostel can arrange ( I even did this with an elderly parent and child with me). Bring blanket, towel, etc. Love that you get a beer at check-in!
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The 'closest to airport' claim is untrue, as I found out, it's so far from the airport (the nearest terminal to it is terminal 1, but even thats a long drive, as for terminal 3, you just about need a long distance bus to get there, if there was one! The taxi driver from airport couldnt find it and often asked in shops and passers by, finally it was found tucked away after passing two gated areas, which added to the cost. if you are wanting to be meeting a local friend or two, they'll never find it if a taxi driver (official airport metered one) cannot.
The young guy there was quite nice though, and place seemed ok. Good place if you are a romantic couple, a happpy environment, but not for us less fortunate singletons seeking company.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Friendly and supportive staffs.
Good to stay if wanna recharge and move on.
Very near to airport.
Far from famous tourist attraction.
