Lokal Hostel

3F 5023 P. Burgos Street, Brgy. Poblacion, Makati City


Staying at Lokal Hostel offers a uniquely immersive way to experience the atmosphere of Makati's Poblacion district, a former red light district that found a new life as the most interesting up and coming food and nightlife destination in all of Metro Manila. All restaurants, bars and clubs of Poblacion are at a short walking distance from the hostel, but if you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city you can also choose to relax on our quiet rooftop terrace or admire the unique collection of artworks that decorates our walls.
If you are planning a trip around the Philippines but you are not sure about the itinerary our knowledgeable staff will be ready to help you with suggestions for traveling and accommodation all across the country.

We are located on the 3rd floor of the building near the corner of P. Burgos Street and Kalayaan Avenue (look for our logo on the side of the building facing Kalayaan Avenue). You can access the staircase leading up to the hostel from either P. Burgos Street or Ebro Street, next door to Señor Pollo.

We are at 25 minutes walking distance from Buendia Station on MRT line 3.

If driving or coming by taxi from NAIA airport: enter the Skyway and follow directions for Makati (North). Exit at Amorsolo, turn right on Sen. Gil. J. Puyat Avenue / Buendia Avenue, then left on Makati Avenue; P. Burgos Street is the first on your right after the intersection with Jupiter Street.
