The hostel is so nice and clean,has very professional staffs.and the hostel is in a really good position, in front of Robinson Manila. Room was clean, and so was the bathroom, I had no issues at all with my stay. It was extremely close to the LRT and the beds were comfortable with the room air conditioned.Would recommend to everyone,nice and cheap place to stay!

Stayed in a capsule room (Nakpil) for 2 nights. AC is very good. Towels, bed sheets and pillows are thick and very clean. Staff are very friendly and reliable. When I arrived home, I noticed that my pocket wifi and my headset are not in my bag. Went back to Tambayan which is 2 kilometers away from the house. Told the receptionist that I forgot something. She accompanied me to the room to check my stuff and it's still there. Thank God and Thanks to Tambayan. Will definitely go back there.

The gang planned to stay in the heart of Malate, Manila during Valentine's Day and it was the perfect idea. Location-wise, Tambayan Capsule Hostel is perfect with a mall a hundred meters away and bars surrounding the area. The dorm beds are amazingly comfy and the gastrobar is open for 24 hours. We lazed the day away with fun game boards and chill-out sesh. We didn't get to meet a lot of travelers though as the hostel was on their soft opening mode during that time.

Room Tip: Dorm beds are perfect for groups

Stayed at the hostel with friends and occupied a whole dorm room. The place looks really swanky with its chandeliered lobby and expensive furnishing. Our room looks very decent too, capsule beds with its own light, charging station and privacy curtain. Location is very convenient, close to everything in Manila. There were a few things they could work out, like balcony locks, toilet doors that are too hard to lock and the entrance to the bar from the second floor, but all in all, I highly recommend this place for backpackers looking for a cheap but very nice place to stay in at the heart of Manila.

Looks amazing, great location next to Robinsons Mall, great layout and design, easy access to public transportation, very clean rooms, extremely helpful and friendly staff, nice big and clean bathrooms. The gastrobar upstairs is an awesome place to chill and drink great coffee, good cocktails and a really great menu with amazing food, all at a very reasonable price! Beautiful spot to relax and watch the hustle and bustle of Manila!
