“Great location, great staff- great experience!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed at OMP for three nights and then came back for another because I loved it! The location is great in the middle of makati city, everything you need from grocery stores to great restaurants and bars are right there! Also the place has great room and the best common area with a kitchen, couches, computers (and free wifi)- a great place to meet fellow backpackers! But the real reson I came back was the great staff and the great atmosphere they created! Always with a smile (a real one) and helping with everything(booking, advice for the trip etc..), and of course they provide a great old Manila tour with a great guide (boodi) for FREE! This was the perfect way to start my journey at the Philippines!

Great place and location in Metro Manila, in the middle of Makati City..Grocery store, restaurant, even coffee bean only nearby by walk! Easily to find taxi, jeepnee to go within the city area. Friendly and helpful staff, they do offer a free city tour, you couldn't ask for more! Bathrooms were clean and rooms were comfortable. Free WiFi in common area and computer with access internet so with the breakfast is soo good too. A big shout out thank You to Elvie and all OMP team. It's so much fun in Philippines and definitely will come back here again for the next getaways. To recommend!

I found Our Melting Pot to be what it sounds like: a real melting pot, where you will find people from around the globe, many of them backpackers using OMP as their base/launching pad as they visit the Philippines. Met people from four different continents in my rather short stay there. Two things that immediately distinguish OMP: genuine care and hospitality (special thanks to Elvie!!!) from the hostel's employees and the cleanliness of the place, also thanks to the employees (including Ness and Roland, among others). I didn't expect a hostel to be like that. Breakfast, Wi-Fi and locker (gotta bring your own padlock) are on the house. There is also this tour of the old city offered by the hostel.
One caveat/heads-up: Pricing for rooms with multiple people is not as low as you might expect. All things considered -- such employees, place, big city, etc -- a very good deal.

Staff, location and the family athmosphere inside the guest house make it feel yourself home. Property, silence and organized tour are perfect. If i could put a better mark I would.
I will come here again and again for sure !! I also stayed in el nido's OMP which respects the sames principles, don't hesitate and choose them!

OMP is a small hostel with a nice vibe. The communal area with couches and a dining table is a good place to meet people.

The people behind the desk whilst friendly are not overly helpful as they have not had training or been provided guidance on assisting travellers. For example, when questions were asked about transport down south by bus, they were unable to point me to the correct bus company or even the correct bus station.

The dorm beds are unfortunately badly made and shake violently when the top bunk moves. Hence this results in not the best night sleep for those on either the top or the bottom.

On the positive side they offer a cheap laundry service and free breakfast so its not all bad. WIFI is good.

When we returned to Manila we stayed in the hostel on the floor below OMP. Whilst it does not have the same backpacker vibe, the beds are a whole lot more comfortable.

Fun hostel near Makati Ave. Stayed here for my first visit to the Philippines while travelling alone. Staff was always incredibly nice and accommodating. They will even give you a tour of Manila in the day and take you out for a night on the town. Breakfast is included which is a nice bonus.

Overall, I felt very at home here and would definitely visit again if returning to the Philippines.

Thank you OMP.
