The bathroom is clean while the hot water and bath gel are always available, the room and the bed are neat, and the whole hostel spaces have lively vibes. The staffs are very helpful and warm. The (free) breakfast menus are also good. The bar view is great although a bit crowded. It is a very nice location to enjoy the district but it's still at least 20 mins walk from the nearest MRT Station (Buendia/Guadalupe), Angkas (motorbike service) may help. Also, don't forget to bring your own lock for your locker. Overall, Z Hostel is a very worth-it place to stay in its value for money.

It's a traveler's hostel so it's not for picky people. There's one bathroom in the room, which is good, and the beds are comfortable. I didn't like the breakfast restaurant as much because it felt too dark and cold, but the food was satisfactory. The coffee tasted really bad, burnt/bitter when I was there. I'd still come back and stay here but I'd get my coffee somewhere else.

Overrated. Building looks nice from the outside and the rooftop is a nice touch but not enough to make up for the poorly maintained sleeping areas and bathrooms. Staff could be warmer and friendlier. The AC was so noisy in our room. Yes, there's free breakfast and sunset cocktail, but I expected more for a place that charges what it does.

I stayed here because of my training. Everything’s good not until some of my roommates turns off the aircon just because they feel cold. Woke up in midnight because it’s super hot. Breakfast Buffet is awesome. Just add something new on the menu! Thankyou Z! Will definitely recommend this to my friends.

it's just a typical place to stay. nothing new its just like any other place. We stayed for just one night just to have a place to sleep. The room is boring no TV. just a bed ang AC and of course bathroom and that's it. I mean if the client would like to have place to stay with, this hostel is not so much good. The bar yes they have but compare to any other hostel this place is nothing. Sorry but I am just saying my opinion about this place.
