Hostels have become a popular accommodation among foreigners and true-blue travelers. Not only is it an affordable option, it's also an exciting solution especially if you're traveling alone because you get to mingle with like-minded wanderers. Lub d Philippines, the newest branch of Asian hostel chain Lub D, just opened in February 2018 in the entertainment district of Poblacion in Makati to offer a fun-filled respite to those staying in the city.
With a promise that "Everyone leaves as a friend," Lub d Philippines features common areas where guests can talk and hang out, such as the rooftop restaurant and bar, which provides front row seats to the amazing skyline of Makati City; the deli bar, which offers a great selection of coffees and smoothie; and the game room, where you can play some foosball or billiards. The hostel also has a co-working space with free WiFi so you can check your work e-mail while on vacation. (But why would you do that?)
For accommodations, you can choose to bunk with seven strangers at the mixed dorm or ladies' dorm; or book a private room for two or for four. Lub d Philippines has a total of 163 rooms in its 13-storey building. Facilities are available for disabled guests and all floors are wheelchair accessible.
Rates start at P540. Lub d Philippines is at 7833 Makati Avenue, Poblacion, Makati City. Lub d has properties in Bangkok, Phuket, and Siem Reap. For more information, visit Lub d Philippines' website.
