First of all, we came to this place after the recommendation here. After there were no rooms, the great staff assisted us in calling and escorting us to a different hostel in the area.
We also took the Manila tour to the old city from 1400-2000 (it's free!). It's a good way to pass half a day if you are waiting for your flight. The tour was very organized and very informative for anyone who wanted to know more details on the Philippines and how to get along in the city of Manila in terms of weather, traffic etc.
The tour was great and we enjoyed it alot! The crew was also very assisting and kind. We havn't slept there, but we certainly will next time.

After staying in several places in the PI's, I'd definately have to say that this is by far one of the best places I've seen. Very community oriented and friendly people located in the heart of Makati business district. Highly recommended.

I have been staying at OMP for three weeks now and it 100% feels like home. From the moment you walk in the staff could not be friendlier or more attentive. They treat you like you are staying at a five-star hotel. Breakfast is fantastic and the rooms and bathrooms are kept immaculate all of the time by the hard-working staff. The wifi works great as well as the air-con in the rooms. It is a great place to meet fun people but at the same time it is never too loud in the hostel, simply fun and welcoming. OMP is in a great location in Makati, near restaurants and nightlife, and the free tours that OMP offers are a great way to see the city!

I didn't even spend the night here, as my flight was super early in the morning, and the staff was still super generous and helpful to me. They gave me advice on what to do in the area, showed me a map, and helped me to catch a proper cab in the wee morning. I also noticed how helpful they were to everyone, emailing the guests with itineraries with ideas of what to see in Manila. They even have different tours each day you can sign up for, and not just tours to take your money, tours to help you out! such as a free walking tour of manila!! they give great recommendations on places to eat, and are just amazing to chat with!! I could go on forever, but see it for yourself! and the warmth rubs off on everyone - all the backpackers are friendly and social in the clean common room. location is great, close to a bunch of malls and parks.

There is a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere in this hostel. The staff are really helpful and very knowledgable about the area. Taxis had no trouble finding the hostel unlike other hostels I stayed in in manila. I would definitely recommend this hostel to fellow backpackers.
