Very organized, there are some railings on the aisles to have a more organized flow of people taking communion. There are also some security on patrol, reminding people to watch their belongings, and sometimes assisting people looking for directions.

Hard to get in because there always seems to be some huge service going on. The area around it is crowded all of the time, dirty, chaotic, and not too safe. I was content to see it from the outside.

I recommend all Catholics visiting see Quiapo church. I came on Friday during a novena. Although it was in Filipino, it was not difficult to follow along. I would recommend foreigners be careful for pickpockets in the area.
