Tambayan Capsule Hostel & Bar is a hip hostel and popular hangout spot located in the heart of Malate, Manila. Located in a renovated Filipino mansion along Pedro Gil, the old Manila-themed hostel is perfect for young backpackers and budget travelers who want to experience the city’s culture like never before.
While the hostel offers private rooms which feature hotel-grade beds, an air conditioning unit, a flat-screen television with cable channels, and a work desk, the property takes pride in its Japanese-inspired capsule rooms. These rooms offer bunk-style capsule beds which are equipped with their own electric fans, reading lights, premium bedding, a mirror, electric sockets, exhaust fans, and pull down curtains for privacy. Perfect for those traveling on a budget, capsule rooms can fit as much as 14 guests. Capsule occupants are given their own locker. Shared bathrooms come with a hot and cold shower, and complete bath amenities. All-female dorm rooms are also available. Complimentary WiFi can be accessed in all public and private areas throughout the property.
During their stay, guests can hang out in the common area where board games like Snakes and Ladders, Scrabble, chess, and playing cards are free for use.
Tambayan Gastrobar, the hostel’s in-house cocktail bar and restaurant, is a great place for a night cap. The menu consists of modern Filipino fares prepared with only the freshest ingredients and produce.
The hostel is within walking distance from some of Manila’s most popular sites such as Intramuros, Rizal Park, Malate Church, and the National Museum.
Travelers coming from the Ninoy Aquino international Airport will only need to take a 30-minute car ride to get to the property.
