Where to stay in Makati (Philippines) ? LUB.D HOSTEL REVIEW


Two things I love about this property: the co-working space and the entertainment area.  Most of the time, I envisioned a hostel as being nothing more than a flophouse offering little more than a roll-away bed, a cushion and a blanket. But Lub.D hostel has certainly dispelled that mistaken vision of what a hostel is.

This hostel has great features and amazing vibe that I haven't experienced in a hostel before. The rooms are spacious enough. They also offer breakfast and other food items in a booth near the lobby area. The location is great and there are tons of pubs and restaurants around the area. There is also convenience store across the road. The staff are very approachable and will cater to your needs as promptly as they can. The roof deck with a lovely city view offers a variety of food and drinks.

As for the private family room where I stayed in, it has the basic needs like beds and bathroom and accommodates up to 4 persons. The design is industrial modern; the room was clean and functional. The room was nicely decorated, with comfy beds and pillows, mini refrigerator, electronic safe box, television, and aircon. They also provide bath towels; shampoo and body wash in their bathroom.

"Lub d Makati is the largest hostel in Manila and the Philippines and the perfect destination for all type of travelers."

"It’s a perfect location where everyone will definitely enjoy their time while travelling to the Philippines, the place to explore the Filipino’s culture in the neighborhood, to find a lot of entertainment & nightlife, great food & beverage choices, shop ‘til you drop, all on the doorstep of Lub d Makati, the coolest hostel in Manila!”

 "Lub.d Makati is the largest hostel in Manila and the Philippines and the perfect destination for all type of travelers.” 

Some cons that I have observed about the place are that sometimes the traffic in the area can get pretty bad especially during the rush hour, and the rooms are not soundproof. So if you want to go to sleep earlier than 2AM, make sure to ask the staff to give you earplugs to avoid noise disturbances from other travelers. 

I love their lobby/common space are offering all sorts of games and activities for guests.

Other than that, I was very satisfied with Lub D Makati. My overall experience was great and certainly a place I recommend for a travelers visiting Manila.
