There no lift but you have plenty of help getting to your room and settle in. The breakfast is light but I been to some where there is no breakfast. Dining in the restaurant was nice...

Stayed in their single private room with shared bathroom for USD30/night. Prices will be much cheaper if you just walk in rather than reserving in advance. Cons: 1. room was very small and very noisy due to street noise and blasting music esp on friday nights till 12 pm bec of the bar upstairs and surrounding areas. 2. Shared bath,...

I booked a capsule here from May 17-19, 2017 since I attended the PMA Annual Convention at Manila Hotel. I like that they have this affordable capsule-type accomodation in Manila because for convention attendees like me, we just need a place to sleep and I personally do not need to stay in a hotel room with a steep price where...

Held my bag for over 24 hours while I traveled to another location (for free). Very friendly staff. On second visit allowed me to do early check in so I didn't need to pay for two nights!! How awesome

Only stayed here one night. The room was nice enough, comfy double bed, clean and good bathroom. So would definitely recommend the room. The staff were pretty unhelpful and couldn't tell us anything about the local area. Saw a recommendation on the hostel travel board where they recommend a street with lots of restaurants on it but they couldn't tell...

I booked a capsule bed and i was actually surprised that the bed is in good size and pretty comfortable. There are blinds for each capsule which is great for privacy but not for socializing. In a hostel, you are not there just for the bed but for traveler like me, I prefer to socialize and learn more about the...
