“Hospitable Staff”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

The place is bein managed by warm hearted people. This is i guess the main asset of this hostel. The place is pretty neat and clean, as i believe they have just recently opened. The location is also centraly located, near the new istrict called Bonifacio Global City and few minutes away from Makati. Just some point for improvement, i just wish that they further renovate the rooftop. It is a great place to fhillout overlooking Manila, but hope they buy more furnitute to maximixe the potential (probably setup a real bar or as such)

For travelers on a budget, Our Awesome Hostel is for you. If you're just looking for a simple place to stay at in Manila for one or a few nights, the hostel would be able to provide you that - plus more! This place boasts of clean bedrooms and baths, great service and hospitality, tight security, and a really cozy sky lounge where you could meet with fellow travelers! The hostel is also just walking distance from a number of good establishments in Manila's rising business district, Bonifacio Global City, while just a short cab ride away from Makati. For as low as USD12 per night if you book through Agoda, you can never go wrong with Our Awesome Hostel!

Staying at Our Awesome Hostel is truly an awesome experience. A true taste of Filipino hospitality is cultivated by the owners who are truly hands-on and well-travelled. The view is beautiful a mix of the Makati skyline and Bonifacio High. The hostel is nestled between EDSA, the main road and Bonifacio High, the entertainment hub. Its truly accessible. The bed is clean and the rates are reasonable. I will definitely be back!

We feel very welcome upon arriving. Nice scenery from the roof top (extended view on Rockwell Business District). The cleanliness of the room is very good especially for a hostel. I plan to go back at Awesome Hostel definitely. The location is convenient since its walking distance to Bonifacio Global City and close to Rockwell and Makati Business District.

This hostel has really nice rooms and I had good sleep quality, despite the fact that there's an elevated highway just 2m from the window of the room. Rooms and beds were clean, although they don't seem to change the sheets very often. Usually they just straighten the sheets and fold the blankets after somebody checked out - first time I saw this in a hostel. There is no internet connection at all in the rooms, only in the small reception area, which is not air-conditioned. This was quite disappointing, especially since the hostel claims to have wifi everywhere on booking.com. The location is good (though right next to busy highways on two sides), near the Fort, near the MRT and easy to find and some of the staff are really nice. But I think I'm going to try a different place next time. By the way, rates seem to vary significantly depending on whether and where you book, so better check a few sites first.

Where in Metro Manila can you find an affordable place and yet still have the best value for service? Situated in the new business hub THE FORT and Makati City CBD, everything is within reach.

The hostel is just new, so expect its still clean. :). Also the staff are very cheerful and heartwarming. Also, owners are hands-on, yuppies who really love people and know what they do best, parteyyyy!!! Happy to stay here. :)

Will definitely come back again and refer to my friends.

Probably the only hostel I know of with owners who actually take the time to make sure your stay there is memorable. Also the view from the roof deck is wonderful, especially at night when the Makati and Fort skyline is lit up. This hostel is also kept very clean, a very huge plus.

The only drawback I can think of is the limited parking and the confusing Manila roads which may make getting there a bit challenging to those not familiar with the area. Aside from that though, no complaints whatsoever!
