Thank you Tambayan Capsure Hotel, I stayed there for 9 days and 8 nights. I really appreciate the staff especially the one in the front desk, he is very accomodating. I stayed in a private room with shared CR, the room itself is small but clean, and bathroom although it is shared, it is contantly cleansed. There was once where they did decontamination of the entire building. The hotel is situated near establishments. Approximately 800km walk to St. Lukes and about 1km to US Embassy. Across the hotel is the Robinson's Plaza Manila, beside the hotel is a ministop and Mcdo. I like my stay there. I will recommend it to others who are looking for cheap place to stay.

The staff are very accomodating and immediately attend my needs. It is a cost effective transient for travellers. I never expect they have hot and cold shower which I really love. The place is cozy and it seems like I am at home. They also ensure comfort rooms are clean. So, I recommened this place for travellers who will be staying for a week in Manila. Moreover, it's across the Robinson Mall, were travellers can buy there needs.

I am truly amazed to have stayed in such a great place for 20 days. The hospitality and staff service is superb and commendable, esp MJ and Lloyd. The security personnel are also so mindful of each and every person that comes in and out and they interact with the guests well too. The hostel’s cleanliness is well maintained and not to mention, its just few steps from the gastrobar where delish foods and affordable booze are offered. I am amazed too on how this hostel is accessible to almost everything-Robinson’s, Public Transpo systems, US embassy, SLEC, delicious restaurant, go-to massage spas, etc. i have met so many friends here and i’d love to check in again whenever im in Manila.
