Buoy Hostel

640 Paulo Ocampo St, Malate, Manila, Philippines, N/A

Overall Rating: 79

New Hostel, just opened. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed! Tranquil spacious rooms, but close to the action. Ideally placed within easy walking distance of a large shopping mall, value restaurants and the famous nightlife along Roxas Boulevard and the Culture Centre. The quiet rooms are clean, secure and comfortable - each dormitory with own shower/toilet, mostly en-suite. Budget meals & free Wi-Fi available. Linen provided. Security guard 24/7.

The spacious rooms are in a well-maintained colonial style building in an attractive courtyard set back 50m from the main road, so it's quiet. The well-ventilated dormitory rooms have 8 or 12 beds with a separate shower/toilet for each room, mostly en-suite. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very good value. Electric fans and lockers are standard but aircon is available for an extra charge of PHP 55 per person. A security guard is on duty 24/7 and private parking is available. There is a dining area where low cost meals are available from PHP 95 . Free Wi-Fi is included. There is a large shopping mall nearby with a supermarket and good value food outlets. Our very own Cafe Bar Grill is in the same compound, open late with live music one night per week. Under joint European / Filipino management with really friendly staff.
