Makati Junction Hostel in Manila in Review

Junction Hostel Makati offers everything you could possibly need; comfort, warmth, food, entertainment and of course, drinks! But try not to let it stop you from exploring the areas nearby where home-made food, restaurants and local everyday life can be experienced.

This is our review. We will share with you our impressions and give you some handy ideas why to stay here. Enjoy!

1. Container Van and old window frames

The building that Makati Junction Hostel is within remains energy efficient. Don’t freak out about all the lighting in the Living Lounge, communal area where you can socialize, work and play – as energy-saving bulbs are used! You will also notice upcycled tables, chairs and even the ceiling where wood, iron and old window frames were restored to add to the Junction story.

You won’t miss the Truck!

It is an upcycled container van, that services all day breakfast, sandwiches, drinks and transforms into a lively bar at night. All of the food and drink served at the in-house café/bar of Makati Junction Hostel are locally sourced.

So in turn support local people and their families. A very good excuse to say yes to one more delicious, sinful pastry on offer throughout the day!

Makati Junction Hostel has also cleverly thought of a way to bring locals and travelers together. Makati Junction Hostel is also a co-working space. And why not? The space is indeed big, and it’s a great way to support and give something back to the local people of Manila.

The bathrooms at Makati Junction Hostel (both shared and privates bathrooms) are provided with plenty of shampoo and liquid soap – think of the amount of plastic that will save over time (and the money…)!
