My Experience Staying at UNWND Hostel

I was looking to break my routine during this pandemic with a stay in the newest hostel in Poblacion, Makati --- UNWND Hostel.

Here is my experience and review of my stay in UNWND Hostel.

My Room

I stayed in the private roomd. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space to store my things. The toilet had a bidet! I didn't feel caved in because of the room's size. There was cable TV and the air conditioner worked fine. There is a hygiene kit that contained a toothbrush, soap, lotion, and other toiletries.

Here are the prices of the rooms during my visit:

  • Luxury Room – P3,500 (introductory rate) | P10,000 (published rate)

The rooftop is the highlight of the hostel. It has couches, bean bags, lounge chairs, tables, games and a Jacuzzi. You get good overlooking views of Makati's cityscape from here. The mood is laid back which makes it an ideal place to just hang out, get some drinks and eat. 


The Jacuzzi is one of the selling points of this luxury hostel. You can relax on the lounge chairs or take a relaxing dip into the Jacuzzi. This is a great chill place during your stay.


One of the things that makes this hostel unique is that it has its own gym. It may be small, but it is functional. I used it during my stay and I can say that it has the essentials for working out. You might not be able to do all the exercises in your regular routine, but you can still burn some calories here.

Reception and Restaurant

As soon as I entered the hostel, I was impressed with the design of the reception and restaurant. It looked cosy, comfortable and inviting. Guests have the option to dine here or at the rooftop area. There are games you can play with whenever you hang out here.

You can check out my review of their cafe and restaurant here: UNWND Cafe and WYP Dining 


The staff are attentive, polite and do their part to make you feel comfortable and safe despite the health protocols. They regularly disinfect rooms and public spaces. They ask you what other things you might need after providing you with their service. 


The hostel is in a residential neighborhood. There are few parking spaces, but you can always ask the front desk or someone in the hostel to help you find a parking spot. UNWND is within walking distance to many restaurants, malls and convenience stores.

Address: 5396 General Luna, Makati, Metro Manila (near Century City Mall and Rockwell Powerplant)

Health Protocols for the New Normal

UNWND follows the health and safety requirements set by the local government. They implement temperature checks, regular disinfection, filling out of health forms, wearing of face shields and face masks, alcohol stations for guests' use, social distancing and limits to the number of people using public places such as the rooftop and Jacuzzi.

Would I recommend UNWND?

The food and room prices are higher compared to many other hostels in Makati, but you get what you pay for. Even the dorm rooms are spacious and come with breakfast. The rooftop area is a nice place to eat and hang out in. The food is also good and have large enough servings. Overall, I'd recommend UNWND for those who have a bit more to spend, but still want to stay within their budget.
