I booked this hostel actually as a surprise gift for my Kids. It’s my birthday and I’m actually in Taipei the time they’re checking-in. They knew that I’ll be back by Feb 8 as per schedule and little did they know that I’m flying out to Manila same day they check-in and will arrive in manila 30 minutes past 9pm. They checked in without me and as per my hubby, Lub D staff were both accomodating and welcoming. There’s also a parking space in front of the building which is very useful for us. No need to pay for parking charges.
