The hotel is very clean, nice design, nice location. But the shower is bad: sometime no water, the shower room smells bad even though it is clean, I don't know where the smells come from.

Staff are very nice and helpful. The place is beautiful. But Shower room are quite dirty on the second floor and have no shower soap and shampoo provided. During my stay, most of the Europe tourists group sang a song all night long till 2am. at the lobby. They were walking around and made a lot of noise. Overall was okay, the bed were clean and have private lamp, mini fan and charger.
A small, clean and cozy place.

This hotel located in malate area. wasn't too far from the main attraction in manila. Staffs were great and very helpful, the only problem I had was they didn't have water heater. Overall this hotel were a great place for your stay!

I love everything about this hostel! Its a fancy hotel probably a 4-5 stars for a hostel! Easy to charge my phone, they have multiple plugs + usb next to my bed and no need to use my international adapter. The bar is just outside of the room but don't worry about the noise because it was soundproof. You only can hear loud noise from the speaker at the bathroom (good songs to sing in the shower). If you were alone and want to try some beers or cocktails would be fine and safe as its less than 40 steps from your room. They provide bread and coffee/tea for breakfast. don't expect much for 10 dollars hostel. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Walking distance from the malls, restaurants, marts and nightlife. Probably 10 mins or less to Baywalk for a good sunset!

Comfortable stay!
First I got the private room shared bathroom at a very good deal (1000 pesos), I think originally it was 1250 pesos. I am very satisfied with the bed and the provided comforter. The aircon is working well. Though the towels are not that white, they were clean. The size of the room is perfect for a solo traveler. For the shared bathroom, it was clean although I use the gents bathroom (allowed to use by ladies) because it has the hot and cold shower and the hand spray is working unlike in the female shared CR, its broken. Check in and out is fast. I ordered value meal lunch around 200pesos which was breaded chicken and it was very tasty. Very nice location, Robinson mall is just their neighbor. Definitely staying here again!

My second home
It's not hard to fall in love to this gem located right front and center of Manila. The strategic location to key government offices (Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, DFA, WHO, NBI, PGH, US Embassy) and historical and must sees like the National Museum, Rizal Park, Manila Ocean Park, Malate Church, CCP, etc. It's accessible by train, Über, Grab, airport and ordinary taxi cabs, tricycle, pedicabs, and the Ube Express (airport express shuttle). Being the former home of a prominent family in Manila, I appreciate how they painstakingly restored the Mansion and made it as modern and as functional as possible for the modern day traveler. The beds are cozy and the sheets are white, fresh, and crisp. It is evident that cleanliness is truly their top priority. I appreciate that since not a lot of hostels give premium to cleanliness. The price? Well, it's the most affordable there is. Evaluating their rate vis-a-vis their accommodation standards, ambiance, and service. I surely got more than what I actually paid for. After all that I have said, what makes Tambayan my residence here in Manila are the people that makes this hostel my second home. Donna, Lyle, Ronnie, and Jhen at the front desk that shall find ways to accommodate my every need and want. Mark, Nancy, Lloyd, Charnel, Aldrin, and Leila that assures my stay is above expectations. Their courteous and accommodating service, pleasing characters, honest and genuine personalities makes my every stay and visit reassuring, and also something to look forward to. Lastly, Karen, their amazing General Manager, who would go out of her way just to see how well we are all taken cared of despite her busy schedule; not to mention her "can do" attitude towards my requests and the requests of other guests. You can take my word to the bank.
