MNL Hostels was founded in 2012 with the goal of bringing like-minded travelers together in a cozy hub where they can appreciate everything that the Philippines has to offer. To date, the hip and charming properties under the MNL Hostel group are located in the bustling city of Makati and the captivating island paradise of Boracay.
MNL Hostels started offering its services to the urban dwellers of Metro Manila when it opened its first ever branch in Makati. The group, the brainchild of three friends—Maica Lao, Selina Cruz, and Gonz Santos—who share the same passion for traveling, envisions its first ever branch to be the pioneer of the hostel culture in the Philippines that showcases true Filipino hospitality. They also envision Manila to be more than just a jumping-off point to other destinations. By providing a comfy nook where tourists, both local and foreign, can comfortably stay in the city, MNL Hostels also helps in promoting authentic Filipino culture by introducing in-house activities like BYOB nights.
Following the success of its first hostel, the MNL Hostels Group opened its doors in Boracay. MNL Hostels Boracay holds the distinction of being the first backpacker's hostel in the island, and continues to be a favorite amongst the many tourists who wish to explore the island's sights and sounds while enjoying quality accommodations that don't cost an arm and a leg.
More than its iconic properties and practical facilities and amenities, the MNL Hostel Group is also known for its outstanding customer service, composed of young and enthusiastic individuals who provide convenient and personalized services.
With the rapid growth of tourism in the country, the group is bound to expand its services so that you are never too far from an MNL Hostel property wherever you are in the Philippines.
