The Unwnd Lux Hostel Dining Experience

If you are planning to hang out with your love ones or friends in the city of Makati, there's a new place in Poblacion that provides exceptional accommodation experience and palette-enlivening food and drink. Let me introduce the Unwnd Lux Hostel.

Unwnd Lux Hostel is one of the newest hostels in Makati featuring with design-minded architecture, laid-back atmosphere, cozy rooms, instagrammable restaurant and a rooftop lounge with the view of Ayala’s high rise buildings.

On this blog, we will talk about their restaurant and rooftop lounge as well as their food and drink. 

The hostel is located in General Luna Street in Poblacion, just around 10 minutes ride from the Philippines' financial and business district. You will surely notice the building because of its big and bright mural. It’s an impressive artwork.

Due to the pandemic, Unwnd strictly follows the health and safety protocol to make sure their guests are protected from the virus.  The guard checked first our temperature and asked us to scan the QR code for contract tracing. You will see a lot of sign boards telling its guests about wearing their face mask and face shield at all times, proper handwashing and observe social distancing.

Upon the entering the property, we're wowed with its restaurant adorned with eye-catching decorations. It’s a vibrant and pleasing restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The hostel receptionists were very friendly and hospitable, making sure we’re assisted properly.

The restaurant offers a spacious dining area. It has lots of wooden tables paired with rattan chairs and a comfy floral couch on the side of the bar.  We ordered their best selling Chicken Oats Caldo. It’s made up of oatmeal, hard- boiled egg, tofu, pork meat, and many more. This unique dish excited me to eat.  I’m very vocal to my friends that one of my favorite food is congee ( lugaw). Yes, you read it right! I’m not very picky when it comes to food. 

At night, the best place to chill is in the rooftop lounge. It captures the ambiance of cozy bar and lounge.  The bar serves beer, wine, and cocktails. The place is surrounded with colorful beanbags and throw pillows. The jacuzzi with beach chairs is an enjoyable spot while drinking your favorite cocktails. Their music is not that loud so everyone can hear each other. The place also offers several board games.

Try their signature cocktails. We ordered the The Pob and Wyp delight. These drinks were fresh and refreshing. The alcohol content was just right to make us feel a little tipsy. 

If you feel hungry, fret not. The bar offers special dishes. We tried the Drunken Shrimp, and Beef Salpicao. We loved it! We will try other best-seller dishes when we return to this awesome hostel. The rootop lounge is truly a great place for people who are looking for fun and cool bar in the evening. 

Over all, Unwnd Lux Hostel is a great place to eat and drink in Poblacion. Whether you like to dine in or drink your favorite beer, Unwind will surely provide you an exceptional dining experience. I can't wait to go back here with my friends.
