Fresh out of the box, MNL Boutique Hostel is part of the new wave of hostels hitting Metro Manila. It just opened last January 15, but it is already getting rave reviews over tripadvisor. Founded by two Filipina backpackers and their friends, the place has everything you will need for budget traveling. The shared bathrooms and showers are clean and there are a lot of them. They have a nice kitchenette. Socializing is the norm, in fact they even have a BYOB night where you can enjoy evening drinking Pinoy kanto style (Filipino street style). This is the second hostel that I’ve been to that is right beside the A. Venue on Makati Ave., which simply proves that this area is by default becoming the second Malate type backpacker area. And now I’m on the hunt for the third hostel in the same area.
Anyway, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…
