The 4 Best Hostels in Manila, Philippines
Jump to:
Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is a densely populated bayside city on the island of Luzon, which mixes Spanish colonial architecture with modern skyscrapers. Intramuros, a walled city in colonial times, is the heart of Old Manila. It's home to the baroque 16th-century San Agustin Church as well as Fort Santiago, a storied citadel and former military prison. No stranger to hardship, the city has endured every disaster both human and nature could throw at it, and yet today the chaotic metropolis thrives as a true Asian megacity with skyscrapers, malls, and plenty to do. As well as outstanding sightseeing, visitors who put in the effort will discover its creative soul - from edgy galleries to a lively indie music scene. Combine this with a penchant for speakeasy bars, artisan markets and single-origin coffees, it's clear to see Manila's not only one of Asia's most underrated cities, but one of its coolest. There are plenty of things to see and do in this city, and, luckily, there are also several cost friendly accommodations to help you enjoy your stay here too.
