Common Area Conversations: Making Friends at the Circle

We recently asked you to tell us about a friend you made at the Circle and got some really interesting answers!

“Went to @thecirclehostel Elyu last February 24, 2017 #HatTrick for “Live Acoustic Set. Cold Beers and Good Food”. Met @warriorwithabow there. Back here in Manila, we dated and voila! she is my girlfriend now. 😊” – Mon

There Are No Strangers

“I remember clearly how I met @projectbernice during that typhoon in Baler for Surf Supreme. A few months later, we ended up on a 4-day trip at Circle Hostel La Union. We had the best time ever. Fast forward to today, we remain great friends and even colleagues! Can’t wait for more adventures in the near future. Thanks for making me meet a great friend, Circle.” – Danee

“My first was last year November, thankful enough to the 3 locals who accomodated us, even decided to celebrate my birthday there which was no regrets cause it was also the welcoming of north swell, then I found myself going back like twice a month.. Circle Baler has been the best escape for the last 8 months. I was able to meet amazing people by merely staying at the common area. Its not like travelling anymore, more like going home.” – PEY

“I met @iidanniina in Baler and I was really stoked to have been able to share the waves with her!” – Rafa

“COOKING AMAZING FOOD AND LEARNING HOW TO SURF WITH @travelkage and @rafaeloca.” – Samy

“Celebrated my birthday last July 18 at Circle Hostel Zambales. This was a different story since it wasn’t about someone I met at the hostel but someone I met a few months ago and brought me to this wonderful place. I tag this as my most memorable birthday! Special day with a special person at a very special place. Salamat @thecirclehostel for your nice place. And thank you to you!😘” – Kenn
