    I am afraid that this wonderful GH closed operations in October this year, but i will keep this post for a few months so members may see that it is closed and can make alternative plans for accommdation.

    Friendly's, as the sign says "by backpackers for backpackers". The GH is in Adiatico St, Malate and is a real traveller's place with lots of information, book exchange, internet, refrigerator, cooking facilities and one of the few places with a roof top sitting area. Benji the owner has travelled the world and know what backpackers want. There are dorms with lockers and rooms at a very cheap price. Benji is most helpful and usually on Saturday nights has a free wine night where he offers wine and snacks to his guests. Shooping mall nearby.
    UPDATE -- I stayed there recently and was treated to free oysters one evening and roast beef the next. Simple fan rooms for 2 are now 695 with ac rooms around 1000 . Dorms are around 350+, but excellent value at the GH.

    Great backpacker choice.


    Friendly´s guesthouse is a classical backpacker place when it´s at it´s most positive.
    The place offers simple but cheap accomodation in a very friendly atmosphere and with nice facilities like free wifi, nice balcony, a book exchange and a staff that really cares about the clients and helps them.
    They also take a clear stand against sex tourism and has a sign at the reception that they do not support that kinda tourism and i think that is very sympathetic.
    This is surely not some place for those looking for luxury, but if you need a cheap nights stay in friendly surroundings then this is in my opinion the best choice in Manila.

    Unique Quality: Everything a backpacker needs.

    Directions: Located in Malate.

  • lives up to its name


    If you want to see Malate at its finest, this is one of the best place to stay at. Sure it's not 5-star hotel material, but the friendly atmosphere is great. The owner is really nice and he really makes it a point to talk to all the guests and ensure us that we are all having a good time.

    Central Backpacker's stay in Malate


    Self proclaimed to be "By Backpackers for Backpackers (and other cool and hip tourists too!)", Friendly's is a great stay for those on a budget.

    Four of us shared a room for a total cost of 900 piso / night.

    The rooms are clean, offering single beds and bunks. There are no amenities provided in the rooms other than A/C units. But blankets may be available upon request (best for those who sleep warm or brought sleeping bags).

    Unique Quality: There is a nice upstairs lounge, full with library, TV, DVD player, two computers for internet, and a balcony with view over Malate. Beverages are available at reasonable price on a cash payment basis.

    Directions: Friendly's is on the corner of Adriatico and Nakpil Street, just a few minutes from Robinsons Department Store, immediately next to Rainbow Pacific Suites Hotel.
