Tambayan Capsule Hostel: Affordable Accommodation in the Heart of Metro Manila



I was shocked when I found out that cell phones weren't allowed in the US Embassy.

That was on top of coming from Batangas City before my visa interview. I knew that most hotels around the US Embassy were too expensive and beyond my budget.

The great thing is that I found Tambayan Hostel. It was a 15-minute walk from the US Embassy which made it very convenient for me. I didn't worry about how to get a cab or Uber after the interview since I just had to walk back.





Common Areas That Have Old Manila Charm


The common areas surprised me because it didn't look like the interiors of most hostels I've been to. The design resembles the intricate designs of hotels with the wood trimmings and arched passageways.


There are also board games that you can play with other guests in the hostel as well as desktop computers and books at the second floor.


A Minimalist Room for a Cozy Stay


Tambayan Capsule Hostel is more popular for their capsule bunk beds that can go as low as Php535.71 / night.

I stayed in a Double Private Bedroom that's Php1,660.71 / night. That's a great price considering the location which is walking distance from the US Embassy and Robinson's Manila.

I loved the simple design of the room from the moment I went in it.


It was very spacious considering that I'm the only one who stayed in the room. I liked the white crispness of the interiors with just a few accents such as the UST painting on the wall.



The charming brass fixtures in the bathroom also adds a nice touch during my stay. It's not every day that I see these.




Affordable Hostel in the Heart of Manila


This place holds a great place in my heart now because it helped me ease one of my worries for one of the most important interviews of my life. They've contributed on why I'm in the US right now.

I would definitely recommend Tambayan Capsule Hostel not just for people who have interviews in the US Embassy but also for anyone who needs accommodations in the Manila area who is on a tight budget. You'll definitely get a bang for your buck here.
