A few days ago, my friends and I visited Z Hostel, to see what the hostel can offer, like the type of rooms that they have and their facilities. Their location is convenient, centrally located in Makati, a good base to sightsee or explore the city and it’s just a few minutes walk to different food joints and two malls.
This is their nice lobby, btw, there’s free wifi in the whole building
There are two dining areas in the hostel, the smaller one downstairs,
and the bigger room upstairs, it’s a dining area during the day, and turns into a bar at night (sorry for the blurry photo)
We also get to taste their healthy and home-cooked style Filipino food. For appetizer, they served us the Classic Pork Sisig.
It was so tasty and delicious, we can’t resist the urge to eat it
with plain rice. Yummy!
Crispy Bagnet served with a delicious Salsa
Pork Adobo Flakes served with garlic rice
and salted egg and tomato salad
Beef Adobo with Coconut Milk, the beef is so tender, it’s so good!
I appreciate that they serve these Salsas with the main dishes, one serving of salsa per dish, and I love them all.
Though they have sodas in can, they also serve fresh juices, I chose the Fresh Calamansi Juice and it's really fresh calamansi, not the bottled type, super refreshing I must say.
The Z Blend Brewed Coffee is perfect for those who love a great tasting coffee but do not like it too strong. It's perfect with cream and the brown sugar they served it with.
Z Hostel is the first Luxury Hostel for the smart traveller and the biggest in the Philippines with 30 rooms and 128 beds.
The rooms come in 4, 6 to 8 bed configurations and they even have a ladies-only dorm, the rooms are spacious, and reasonably priced. You can get more details here.
Less than a year old but I must say that they are doing a good job. They will surely attract a diverse mix of travelers, both local and foreign. But mostly, I like the homey ambiance of the place, not too big, just enough space to move around and mingle.
