COVID Advisory: Please always wear your mask and face shield when going out. Observe social distancing. Sanitize with alcohol.
When we hear the word “city,” one thing comes to mind – “stressful.” With this populated, congested place that we all know and usually face and experience, who would have first thought this could be an ideal place to chill out? However, despite all the negativity associated with the word “city,” there are still many things to look forward to visiting and staying in this modernized, developed place!
Being in the city is not always about congestion, pollution, and all the negative stuff you have been hearing from anybody. Being in the city has a lot to offer, and you can do a lot of things here! From being in 5-star Michelin restaurants to luxurious hotels, Instagrammable cafes, huge malls, and such. But apart from these things, my friends and I have recently discovered this UNWND Lux Hostel in Makati. We have found this place as a place where you can chill and unwind in a luxurious hostel. Imagine experiencing luxury in a hostel? Because, why not? For sure, this is going to be one of the most favorite chilling spots in Makati and the entire metro!

Things to See
My friends and I have stayed here for three days and two nights! During our stay, we were to enjoy the hostel’s amenities that it offers! Here are the following:
Once you enter the hostel, this takes you to the lobby right away. Its lobby area looks aesthetically pleasing, which makes it more vibrant and appealing to the guests! You would also notice an Insta-worthy mini cafe and a minibar in the lobby area! I personally loved the lobby’s ambiance, and this is actually where we had our lunch during our 2nd stay. When you get to visit here, its lobby area will catch your attention!
The hostel has its mini-gym area located on the roof deck! If you are fond of working out, especially in the morning, you can visit the gym area and work out here!
They have a mini sauna room which is also located on the roof deck. This is also one of the amenities that you can use during your stay. I believe the sauna room is good for two persons only.
The Mini Bar Area
The mini bar is just so cute and filled with boho-style furniture! They have two minibars; one is on the ground floor while the other is on the roof deck! It’s perfect for your Friday night sessions! But if you want to have more space, you may also visit WYP (What’s Your Poison) near the hostel.
The Outdoor Jacuzzi
Also located on the roof deck, this is one of our favorite spots in the hostel! You can have fun here at any time of the day – dipping yourself in a jacuzzi while observing the nice view of the city. Guests can use the outdoor jacuzzi for an hour per group. Just make sure to book your time slot for the use of the jacuzzi.
As mentioned above, most of the amenities that you can enjoy are on the roof deck area. This is where you can completely chill out whether you are alone or with friends! In addition to that, you can also play different kinds of board games during the daytime!
The hostel has its gallery, which you can see along the hallway of each floor of the rooms – starting from the second floor. If you are into arts and interested in buying some paintings or artworks, you may ask the staff to assist you! Each painting is for sale and made by our local artists in the Philippines!
Fun Things to Do
As I have said, Unwind Lux Hostel is not just the typical hostel that you can find in the metro. There are a lot of fun things to do here while spending your days here. Here are some of the things that my friends and I did during our stay to give you an idea.
Swim in the jacuzzi.
Soak yourself in a jacuzzi while you get your body massaged! A perfect way to cool down and unwind while enjoying the sunlight and the city view during the day. Meanwhile, relaxing in a jacuzzi at night can also be memorable. Its stunning city night lights, cool temperature, and soothing music make the entire atmosphere so relaxing. What an ideal night to spend on!
Have breakfast on the roof deck.
The accommodation comes with a free breakfast. You can either have it in your room or at the cafe on the ground floor or even on the roof deck. My friends and I chose to dine in at the roof deck every morning because it offers us such a peaceful view! Not to mention the scrumptious and bountiful breakfast that the hostel provides!
Experience the simple nightlife.
Since they got a minibar, you can spend the night here enjoying your favorite drink and snacks! Its music, amazing food, and accommodating staff make your stay more fun! We totally had fun spending our Friday night at the hostel. We had fun singing with the DJ and having our drinks and food!
Relax in the sauna.
Since saunas have some good health benefits, you can have a relaxing day at the hostel when you get to try their sauna.
Dine-in at their cafe.
Their cafe is on the ground floor, which is in the lobby area. If you want to have another spot to chill, you may spend your time at their mini cafe!
The hostel is good for couples, families, and barkada groups! Since it’s a hostel, they also offer rooms that are good for backpackers! (But since it is still pandemic, I think they are not offering this kind of service yet!)
