What is Hostels?


Written by Administrator Saturday, 12 November 2011 17:34

Hostels provide budget oriented, sociable accommodation where guests can rent a bed, usually a bunk bed, in a dormitory and share a bathroom, lounge and sometimes a kitchen. Rooms can be mixed or single-sex, although private rooms may also be available. Hostels are generally cheaper for both the operator and the occupants; many hostels have long-term residents whom they employ as desk clerks or housekeeping staff in exchange for free accommodation.

Direction to Hostel


Written by Administrator Saturday, 12 November 2011 13:03

From the Ninoy Aquino Airport, take only airport-accredited taxis and insist for a metered trip (not a negotiated fare). Advise the driver to take you to JP Rizal Street in Guadalupe, Makati. The driver should take you to EDSA and take an exit that will lead you to JP Rizal.

The taxi will turn left to JP Rizal and after about 500 meters, you will see the 1 River Central logo to your left. This is in front of a Caltex gas station.

By MRT or bus, exit at Guadalupe Station. Walk down the JP Rizal exit and take a left at JP Rizal Street. This will be a 10 minute walk to reach 1 River Central.

Taxis, jeeps, buses and the MRT are easily accessible.
