Z Hostel – Makati, Manila

Tim and I stayed at Z Hostel in Manila for a couple of nights and it’s one of the best hostels we stayed at. We didn’t pay much and location was suburb. At the roof top they’ve got a bar which turns into a mini club and has an amazing view of the city.

We highly recommend the hostel whenever you visit Manila. Z Hostel offers good breakfast and a nice cozy common area to use your laptop or read a book. The hostel also offers good recommendations on what to do around the city.

Budget : $$

Hotel Service : 8/10

Visited : March 2017

Tips :

  • Check out the area around the hostel. It has one of the best night life in Manila.

Philippines – Love and Peace Jungle River Paradise Resort

After an exhausting day of Island hopping, our tour guide dropped us to our hostel/resort on a tricycle. It’s an Asian form of transportation and in other countries such as Thailand, they call it ‘Tuk Tuk’.

The hostel/ resort is the perfect place to enjoy and love nature. It’s located in the jungle and the rooms are facing the river. We booked a room that offered 2 floors, Tim and I slept on the lower floor while Marvin and Mohammad had to climb up a ladder to get to their beds. Our room did not have hot water, TV or air-conditions but it was hell of an experience.

During our stay, the resort/ hostel was being managed by adorable children. The kids were so accommodating and we spent the night telling ghost stories and teasing each other. The funniest thing though was when one of the guests asked for a beer from the 10 year old boy LOL. The boy is super cute, he is the little boy I’m carrying in the below picture and his name is John.

Mohammad and I usually sit and relax on the hammocks while Tim and Marvin sat on a water doughnut floating on the river. Talk about relaxation 🙂

The pictures below show how cozy and cool the place is. It was an awesome experience to stay in the middle of of the jungle. We had no TV and no proper internet. We really did enjoy our stay, till next time Puerta Princesa.
