RED CARABAO HOSTEL
Matthieu Petrucci the Assistant Director
If you are going to visit Manila, the crazy capital of the Philippines where would you bunker down for the night? Simple: RED CARABAO HOSTEL!!...DUH!
Awesome blend of cheap accommodations ( about 7.50 USD per night), cool mesh of oriental, Spanish and Filipino architecture, and some of the nicest staff you’ll meet while on your travels.
Here’s a sample of the people, art and culture:

Lain upon the fridge was the quote that sums up the trip:
“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass,
It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
As we were about to leave the hostel, Edwin told us that he arranged a lunch for us and of course we could not turn down a free meal, so we indulged in some of the finest Filipino cuisine. There was broiled chicken, pork, rice, more tasty meat dishes and to top it off a mango tart…MASÁRAP!!
We left the hostel with new friends, satisfied stomachs, and a deeper sense of Filipino hospitality.
