A Modern Place to Stay in Z Hostel- Manila, Philippines

October 27, 2015

Z Hostel is a hybrid between hotel and hostel where you can choose to stay in a dorm room or a private room.  One unique aspect is that the hostel employs staff from 5 star hotels and resorts, as well as staff who have experience working in the top hostels in the country.  Forget dirty bed sheets and scruffy hostel common rooms, at Z Hostel the atmosphere is more like a chic luxury hostel.  They make sure that to provide a very professional service alongside a very relaxed environment.

Z Hostel is the only hostel in the heart of the business district of Makati as well, with a rooftop bar and lounge area on the 7th floor that over looks about 5 cities in Manila.  It epitomises the concept of luxury on a budget.  Staying here means you’ll get to hang out with both locals and tourists who drink and regularly hang out at the hostel’s rooftop bar.
