Probably the cheapest around the area”

I started here for a week and it didn't disappoint. Some key takeaways to consider: - Cheapest (1) day stay - Can fit 60L Hiking Bag with an extra compartment for shoes in their locker. - Clean and Cozy hostel beds with power outlets to charge lappy and phone. - Housekeeping and staff are nice and polite Cons: - Sometimes, there's no person in-charge at the reception. - Lounge is not as cozy as you would think, I sweat a lot just by passing by. - Coach-Freddie-Roach (but it's not as bad as what others described here) Place is frequented by local and foreign tourists waiting for their next travel, so it's fun meeting new people and make new friends.

Comfy and location-wise”

For backpackers who are on a budget, this is a great deal. You can stay here for a very affordable price which includes already hot showers, comfortable bed, and friendly staff. The location is near to the Robinsons Place Manila. It is also surrounded by lots of fastfood chains and spa. The hostel itself is very homey because of its historic ambiance. You do have to buy some of the basic toiletries like the soap and toothbrush but good thing for me I already have one when I arrived. The Vasquez Room that I availed was very nice. It has a tv, aircon, safety box, a large mirror in front of the bed, towels and a bed with a comforter only for the price of Php 600+ thanks to Agoda app. The guard was very kind because he assisted me with my baggage as well as the staff. I didn't seem to go around their other facilities such as the rooftop bar. If I happen to come by Malate again, I'll surely pick this capsule hostel again.

Great for travelers and people who just need a place to stay for the night”

The sleeping area is tidy and comfortable. Some roommates are noisy sometimes and the shower area gets messy, especially in the afternoon when there is water interruption. Despite these downsides, you will find your stay worry free if you use the bathroom earlier than others and if you arrive late, when others are already sleeping. This is basically a great place for travelers and for people who just need a sleeping area and place to park their things. This is not recommended for those wanting complete silence in the room and hotel like amenities in the bathroom. Luckily for me, what the hostel offers is just what I need.

this was not my favorite stay in Tambayan because of some very rowdy guests, and also due to the water shortage in the area (totally not their fault), BUUT the staff still did a good job of maintaining the place. As always, the staff were polite, my bed was comfortable, and my stay was okay.
