Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the cheaper backpackers in Manila city. Rooms are basic but clean. The room were we stayed in had no windows. Showers are clean and hot water. Wifi is good. You can use also the kitchen and coffee/tea is free. Staff is helpful and friendly.

I stayed here for a week and a bit with my girlfriend.

The rooms are nice and clean we stayed in quite a few different rooms there.

The aircon rooms are very nice but some of the fan rooms have no windows and are extremely hot that however is reflected in the price.

The location is good. Probably not the nicest area of Manila but there is plenty to do within walking distance like watch the sunset over the bay, visit the National Museum and Ocean park.

The staff are really friendly and helped us plan our trip in Phillipines and the food in the restaurant below is really good. try the tapsilog breakfast its delicious.

I would stay here again if I ever end up back in Manila.

During our holiday me and my boyfriend got sick and we had to stay longer in Manila. Chill Out Guesthouse is small and cosy, with a good service, ladies working there were very helpful and friendly.
Room - huge and very clean with private bathroom.
Neighbourhood...well maybe it is not the nicest but close to guesthouse is a market and few shops where you can buy food, cosmetics, medicine, etc. Very noisy in the evening and at 4 o'clock in the morning roosters were soooo loud :)
Prices - fairly average for this standard.
What was good about this place was a common kitchen so we could cook our food. Would be nicer if kitchen would be cleaner.

My partner and I arrived at the Chill-Out Guesthouse in Manila, late one evening. We had booked a cheaper private double room, with shared bathroom.

The room was a small, dark, windowless box, with a bed, a chair, a bin and a small table. At first glance, the bed looked broken. I lifted the mattress up, to see that the bed slats were mostly all broken, and the mattress was sloping down. It was late, and we were tired, so we got into bed, aware that the slightest wrong movement would cause the bed to break further. It was SO UNCOMFORTABLE, due to the mattress angling towards the floor. I was just drifting to sleep, when I felt something running up my leg, my partner was using his phone, and he shone the light on me to reveal a huge cockroach making his way up my leg towards my underwear.

With immediate screams of horror, I kicked my legs, throwing the cockroach across the room, and of course, causing the bed to completely collapse. Our room was literally right next to the reception desk, so we exited, in our pyjamas, at around 2am, demanding a new room with a real bed. The receptionist looked at our bed, and made a feeble attempt to fix it and convince us it was fine. We were appalled that he thought it would be remotely acceptable, let alone safe (there were sharp wooden boards poking out) for us to be paying for such a room.

He agreed that we could move to a room upstairs, that was more expensive. Due to the time being 2am, we agreed to move to this room, and sort out payments etc. in the morning. The new room, admittedly, was more pleasant, and with its own bathroom, but the sheets were questionably clean, and there were stains on the walls.

In the morning, we spoke to the manager. Our original room was $20 per night - massively overpriced for what it was, but the Philippines accommodation is notoriously expensive. The new room was almost double at $35 per night. We argued that we should have a discount, due to the inconvenience of us having to move to a new room in the middle of the night, the bed breaking which could have caused injury, and the dirty cockroach drama. The woman was quite unpleasant, and did not want us to get any benefit or compensation. In the end, we got the first night at the price of $20, and the second night at a reduced rate of $30 (although we did not get air con for this price, so we were still ripped off!)

Overall, the place is pretty gross, and the area does not feel safe in the evenings. I know the saying is you get what you pay, but this is really ridiculous.

Stay away!

1) we booked for a 6 person room and they gave us one for four and three slept on the floor.
2)each time we hired their transportation they charged diferent for same distance (i.g. airport)
3) we changed room with confirmed reservation and was one bed short
4) when we arrived they walked us to the exchange house and before we came in the driver talked to them in their local language and after that they try to sell us money for incredibly high prices
So... that's a bad service in my opinion

I understand you have to pay a small fee if you book a ticket, but when I said that a fee of 125 pesos was a lot. The staff member lied in my face by showing an online travel website with the same price they charged. 575 P.

When I asked how much a taxi to the bus station was, she claimed not to know it. She said to come back tonight and if other people were going to the bus station, we could share.

When I returned at night, I met 2 other travelers who were going to join me. Suddenly they had a car ready to drop us off, for 500 P!

We said a taxi was much cheaper and decided to take a taxi to the station. It tuned out it cost us only 110 P!

The lady started to make up excuses: traffic jams, taxis who would drive in circles, the taxi wouldnt drop us off at the correct station, the bus company had called her and would leave earlier...
We had almost 2 hours for 5.5 km to the station, so we knew everything would be ok.

The staff is really and friendly, but if you want to rip me off like this, I'm not happy...
Ignorant tourists will be ripped off !

Responded 21 Jan 2015
Hello, I thing it should be very usefull to make some clarification about this bus ticket service we provide inside the guesthouse. First and only time since 6 month we provide Ohayamy bus ticket than we have other reaction than « thank you very much save time, monay and energy » So we will take few minute for explain you why and how it s very useful for the traveler !!! Save time : The bus station like you say it s 20 minute from the guesthouse ……. at 8 or 9 PM that true ….. if you know Manila (espana blvd, Paco etc) you know than on the day it s about 1 to 2 hours travel by taxi (the price it s also different), so you don t have to pass your afternoon on Taxi for book your Ticket Save monay and we are full transparent about Simple mathematic : Ticket price : 450 pesos Commission guesthouse 120 pesos 1 way taxi fare to the bus station 110 pesos so in the guesthouse 450 +120 = 570 pesos out guesthouse 450 + 110 + 110 = 660 pesos So sorry you feel rip off but this number show than your feeling was bad. About the deposit, Private van with driver Huyndai Starex 10 seater, for 500 pesos for go to Ohayamy bus station from Malate, I m again sorry to say it but yes for sure like every private transportation it s more expensive than publicTaxi, but at this price we are sure to be the cheaper on the market. And we can also say a lot of thing about taxi ...... it can be very, very expensive in Manila if your driver is not realy honest (for exemple if you don t speak english or first time traveler) Your comment about one service of the guesthouse, the fact than you touch our reputation, NO WE ARE NOT EVEN TRYING TO RUN AFTER THE MONAY OR CHEATING OUR COSTUMER !!!! dont look fare for us. You have to figure out than book Ohayamy bus ticket for go to Banaue from Malate it s a very good opportunity and service for the traveler, we are the only place to do it and with this commission you can understand and trust us than we are doing that more for the service than for the monay !!!! So I hope you can make your own calcul, include the special information than we give you on the reception with adress, map and explanation about the area of Banaue and Sagada ( FOR FREE !!!), accept the fact than the guesthouse is clean, confortable and the staff is friendly etc .... We will be happy to receive you next time you drop by Manila for give us the opportunity to make your experience in our guesthouse better feeling .

We were so happy to get there!
IMPORTANT: The adress of the Chill Out Guesthouse mentioned in the latest Lonely Planet is INCORRECT. Chill Out moved to Remedios Street after their old guesthouse burned down in april 2012!!

We stayed their 3 different times:
They welcomed us with open arms, always explained us how to get which jeepney across town, did the best laundry we ever had in 5 months for a good price (they even sewed some off our clothes that were teared!!)

The fan room is well priced compared to others!

When we arrived there the second time, we came back exhausted from a nightbus from Banaue, and they offered us an 'interim' room until check in, so we could rest and sleep.

The girl who runs the place for the french owners is a real treasure!

I stayed here with my sister from July 4th to 9th to attend Cisco class. At first I planned to stay in a hotel and glad I found this one out. I was able to save half of my budget for hotel accommodation! We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. It was clean and I got what I paid for so no complaints.

The staff are all friendly and even the owner welcomed us personally. They even allowed me to leave my luggage when I dropped by early in the morning before I went to my class wherein Check-in schedule should be around 1pm.

Free coffee and Wi-Fi access. Open kitchen if you'd like to cook. I would definitely come back.

Initially stayed here for 4days, so thankful! Upgrade my room to private air con with own bathroom. My nephew stayed with me the whole time! There is no TV on this room but even if I did have, I would not have used it anyway. Once I had shower, I hit the sack & down so fast. My 1st room was uneventful!
Few days before my flight, I came back but with air con room shared bathroom. I will not do that again!! Why?? Every time you used the loo or take a shower, you have to make sure you lock the door and it was a pain in the butt. My last night I upgraded it to an air con, own bathroom so I basically moved next door. This room is above the kitchen area. I was so disgusted when I opened the bathroom door and cockroaches were roaming everywhere. Since this is my last night, I didn't bother to tell anybody. There's a weird smell of the sink and the sink flows very slow. Is that what the cockroaches is up to! No idea!
This is my 1st time staying in a guesthouse in Manila so I don't have any to compare with. Overall, very fast Wi-Fi, loved the air con. The main reason I chose this guesthouse is it's BUDGET friendly and near the Manila Bay and Rizal Park. Will I go back, definitely, but I have to pick the room.

Hi sam I am sorry to say you will not be able to get access to the ground floor rooms or the bathroom. On the upside access to chillout decking area is good, so go and enjoy the chillout ambiance. One last thing access to the chillout toilet is going to be difficult for you but maybe possible Regards Kevin
