I could consider this place my home away from home. Always a joy to see again staff members whom I have known since I was first introduced here and it always makes you feel secured in a not-so-familiar place as Makati. But I love Makati so much. I am so amazed and allured by this charming metropolitan jungle.
You feel homey in this hostel, always with free light breakfast daily (choices of toasted bread, cereals, eggs, bananas and a few more to accompany them like milk, assorted jams and coffee/milo). The area feels safe, thankfully in my multiple visits nothing suspicious was at bay, and it is centrally located to most pubs, churches, restaurants/cafes and major buildings.
Clean, well-maintained toilet and bath, very inviting and comfortable 4-bed/6-bed air-conditioned rooms. Dining hall and entrance lounge were still dependent on ambient temperature but hopeful that they also make it air-conditioned but I don't mind as long as my bed is excellent. Should you wish to cook for your meals or refrigerate your drinks, they do allow it as long as you ask permission.
Best service they could render to their tenants is a free guided walking tour of Old Manila which is very enjoyable and informative.
Staff members were helpful in getting me a ride and I was so much thankful for that.

Affordable, clean, spacious and best of all, very warm and welcoming staff. Look for the hip and perky Elvie, the charming Jong and the handyman RJ. They're among the receptionists I get to mingle with at the hostel. The main door is locked at sundown and they give a passcode to their tenants to access the digital lock.
The photo above shows their dining and lounge area where guests share hearty conversations over toasted pan de sal and peanut butter and jam and a warm cup of coffee/chocolate for a casual breakfast all provided by the staff and the guests who extend their generosity for everyone. The ambience adds an encouraging vibe.
Their 6-bed room costs PhP500/person with a shared toilet and bath outside. Their 8-bed room where I was ushered costs PhP600/person with ensuite toilet and bath. Love their beds. All air-conditioned. Really comfy with lace curtains for a more private feel, individual bed lights and sockets, hot and cold showers and bidets. There's also an area for guests to dry their laundry. Lockers are also available at the hallway.
My issue though is that their dining and lounge area have no A/C. It gets a little warm by midday but overall, it was by far the best hostel experience for me.
