    I loved the location! It is right in front of Robinson's Place mall. The lane is full of massage parlours. There is a rooftop bar on top of the property. And it is very convenient to travel to tourist areas of Manila from here.

    The free breakfast didn't really have anything except for small buns and peanut butter. I had to go out for breakfast to cover up for the lack of it in the hostel.

    Everything were very good if not exceptionally good.

    The coolness of the room because aircon was not that good maybe its due for cleaning or due for refilling of freon.

    The aircon in dorm and common areas was good.Key card to enter dorms,free lockers and a 24hr doorman made the place secure in an area that is a bit dodgy.Jazz could be heard from the bar area nightly until 12,quite ok free Muzak.The cleaners and reception staff were friendly.House is a converted mansion with period stained glass and staircases,class.

    Unlike in other South East Asian countries shoes were allowed everywhere in the property.So dirt was tramped into the toilets,showers and made into dirty mud.No shoes in bathrooms and a rack of shower,bathroom slippers would have solved this.Maybe it’s a Philippine thang.

    WiFi was decent upstairs and the general location is decent. No other positives this place is horrible.

    This place is totally filthy!! The bathrooms are disgusting. The water kept on going off, the showers barely worked, and the drains were all blocked in the shower so you shower in other people's hair filled water. gross!! And staff were really rude. I'm travelling for a year living in hostels and this is right down the bottom of the list!

    You can leave your luggage even before you check-in and after tou check-out.

    It's hard to climb the upper bunk.
