Where to Meet Backpacker Girls in Manila? Z Hostel
Z Hostel Makati
Western girls and Asian tourist girls tend to avoid Manila. if you read any Facebook group backpackers will be like ‘Manila is a dump fly out asap‘. I assume they can’t handle the traffic, hookers, red light scene, etc.
There’s not much to do for girls in Manila. It’s a bit of a man’s playground so most tourists and expats you’ll see are guys. White girls usually want to head to the beach to get a tan.

Let’s say you’re not that into Asian girls… where then to meet western girls in Manila? Or maybe you want to hookup with tourist Asian girls that are backpacking. Some Pinays backpack too.
Z Hostel on Don Pedro street, Makati, has a rooftop bar where you can go drink even if you aren’t staying there. Pretty small but has quite a few backpacker girls, western, Asian and Filipina.

It’s actually only seconds away from P. Burgos, so if you strike out you can always hit the gogo bars.
Most of these girls don’t venture that far. The furthest they walk is basically the 7/11 at the start of Don Pedro or Pura Vida reggae bar on the other side before they leave Manila.
Maybe they get a cab to Greenbelt mall during the day. But it’s funny they’re so close to all the hookers and naughty stuff they usually avoid Manila because of.
Tourist girls tend to just be passing through Manila, staying in a cheap dorm room to meet other travellers before flying out to Boracay, Palawan, or some other island destination.
Room start at 750 pesos ($15) a night for an 8 person mixed dorm. If you’re travelling alone you could even stay there and meet western girls / asian backpackers that way.
Although you won’t be alone long in Manila if you just hop on dating sites.
There’s a 200 pesos breakfast buffet and if you stay there you get a 20% discount on Manila MMA / Muay Thai / Boxing / Jiu Jitsu lessons.
Private rooms are $50 so that’s not really worth it when Gramercy is only $30-40 on Airbnb.

There’s no cover for the rooftop bar, just a minimum 300 pesos bill, you get a bracelet for 300 and use that to buy drinks / food. Bar snacks like chicken nuggets and sausages.
I see quite a few Pinays at Z Hostel being very receptive to foreigners so it can be a nice predrinks spot before heading to Burgos. Two very different scenes.
White girls & Pinays
Sharpen your day game skills here then work on pay game just over the road. Pura Vida reggae bar next door is good too, quite a few cute girls go there.
There must be other places to meet western girls in Manila but so far everywhere I go I see hardly any, just a few in malls. Another thing you can try is the Facebook group Philippines Backpacker / Traveller.
