Great backpacker choice.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 28, 2011

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.

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

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 4, 2008

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.
