When we got an invite to stay at Z Hostel for 2 nights, we were a bit skeptical because we have never tried a hostel before. But exchanging emails with Cao, made us change our minds. He was very warm and accommodating so, we thought we’ll be getting the same treatment when we got there.
I chose the last weekend of November since it’s the last month where Miguel and I have the same rest days.
The booking was all smooth, they just asked a photo of our valid ID’s and voila, a confirmation was sent via email. We didn’t have issues with checking in too. Well, we had a rough time locating the hostel because Google maps gave us a totally different direction.
Since their parking area was still under construction then, we had to park outside the hostel. Cafeteria was also under construction but there are near by restaurants and convenience store so, food wasn’t a problem.
We were given a room with 4 beds (2 bunk beds). Every bed has it’s own power outlet so, if you’re like me who can’t live without a mobile phone and a laptop, then you will surely love Z hostel. The room has enough space and so is the bathroom. I can imagine a whole barkada or a family spending some quality time together. They also have enough closets for your stuff and a safe box for your valuables.
I personally love their roof deck where you can hold small parties.
