Townhouse Hotel / Hostel Manila
Travel Blogs from Manila
I am not going to write much as really there is not much to say, its a city ( and not a particularly nice one at that) and its VERY hot and humid, Danny and I are constantly sweating even when we are not doing anything..... Roll on Palawan and the beach.
Our first night in the Philippine, we stayed at a little hole in the wall of a rat's nest called the Townhouse. We needed a place to catch a few hours sleep as we had an early morning flight to Dumaguete, on the south coast of Negros. The Townhouse is convenient and inexpensive, but to stay there again they'd need to pay me. It was maybe the worst …

Back in hot, dirty, smelly Manila one last time before our flight to Singapore on Wednesday. I caught the cold that Jon got a few days ago so I'm just staying in the hostel blogging all day. Jon went out to try to get his G9 repaired, but apparently it needs a new censor. Too bad, I was …
Manila is HUGE, very spread out, and full of traffic. Our hostel looks like its 5 mintues from the airport but it takes us over 40 minutes to get there. It's a weird place to stay but they will store our bags for free while we travel around for the next 2 weeks. There's lots of single old …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
The room we had was large and had OK decor although it could do with a lick of paint. We took the double room without ac for 700 pesos which as we have traveled many countries in Asia is by no means cheap by backpacker standards and the shower had no water coming out, we were told that the tank can not cope with all the people having showers and the tank was empty, concidering that we paid for onsuite bathroom I would suggest that water in the onsuite was a basic requirement. I will say this was one of the best budget places in Pasay so if you are coming here be warned, its hot and humid unless you pay more for AC. I want to add that we ordered a taxi off the reception the day before we left and when it was meant to pick us up they told us that they could not go to the airport because of the colour codeing!!!! I would not stay here again
