    I wish they would give their tenants more privacy and quiet time”
    I actually had no problems with my roomate and the other tenants because they’re all fine and friendly. Everything in this place is recommendable. Except for a couple of things, First, the housekeeping lady woke me up because of her loud voice chitchatting with another bedspacer while she was cleaning the room, sweeping the floor under my bed while i was still laying down trying to get back to sleep because i checked in late around 2AM. I wasnt really able to rest because She just barged in without knocking and does not move discreetly inside the room. Second, there was no towel provided. So you are just paying for the bed, cheap pillow and a super thin blanket. Not really worth the money. I know some cheaper capsule hostel that provides your basic needs like towel.

    right now it is already supplied by booking.com for cash basis only... no longer accept creditcard payment via online reservation/booking which were in the past directly provided by agoda..this restrict your booking from availing promotions like the eligible for discounts from agoda creditcard companies or redeem gift card...

    A very pleasant stay”
    I moved to this hostel from Makati to be closer to the Cubao bus station for my very early morning bus ride the next day. The hostel was in a more out of the way location in town, however I met a very friendly Filipino woman at the hostel who chatted to me a lot, which was very different from my lonely time in Makati. The beds were very large and the room was very spacious. There was hardly anybody there when I was staying and it felt like I had a private room. The facilities were clean and satisfactory and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to be close to the bus station or who wants a pleasant space to explore from. It's also close to the train station which you can take to many other places in Manila.

    Big Beds”
    Location; Bed; Room
    It was good! Their bunk beds were really big and sturdy that I had no worry sleeping on the upper deck despite weighig 73 Kgs. The location was very near (walking distance) to SM, Araneta Coliseum, etc. The room is very spacious, quiet and relaxing. The only negative comment we can say is that every person needs to give a security deposit of P1,000! Huwhaat!!? We were four so that's P4,000! And we were on a tight budget since we are starting businessmen. Geez! That was just so irritating.
