Hostel is good for budget travellers. Rooms are ok, aircondition works well, bathrooms are clean. Hot water is available which is a bonus. Breakfast is included which is okey too. Staff are all helpful and quite friendly. If the owner of the hotel, spend more money in fixing the lounge area at the rooftop, then I think, the hostel is a good place to stay. Roof should be fix as when its raining, the place is flooded as all roofs are leaking.I ordered foods to share with my relatives but cant use the rooftop as you need umbrella to be able to sit there...alls wet even the karaoke machine..so to the owner of 1river central, spend more money on what is necessary for travellers like me, place you can sit and not get wet, cant really have relatives on the rooms so no choice but for all of us to have a shower in the rain in the leaking roofs. Cant really go anywhere when Manila is underwater, I guess better to get wet than drown.
