I have stayed at this hostel several times on my various trips to the Philippines. It is a hostel as opposed to a hotel and it serves its purpose well being conveniently close to the Airport and Mall of Asia. At the current time there is obviously building work going on, which will be to the good. On this occasion... More

I was recommended this place by a friend who lives in Palawan cause I needed somewhere close to the airport at a cheap price but while I wasn't expecting much, it was still quite a disappointment, I wouldn't go as far as nightmare or hell on earth, but it is certainly not a cheerful place. While the room was clean... More

Under no circumstances would I recommend that anybody in any situation should stay in this hostel! We lasted 2 hours before checking out and running for our lives! From the minute you arrive you are made to feel like you shouldn't be there. It did not feel safe. The room was filthy and I mean really dirty. We didn't see... More

Bit it took us 45 mins to fet there anyway (taxi). I was totally suprised when we got there where i was supposed to stay. I booked one... More

If you're unfortunate enough to stay in a ghastly city such as Manila, at least take the essential precaution of finding somewhere half decent to stay in. The Townhouse Hostel unfortunately does not constitute the word 'decent' in any respect, and I will tell you exactly why. Firstly, don't be drawn in by the fact that it is conveniently advertised...

The Townhouse is one of the best hotels Ive ever stayed at ... the reason for this is the communal area at reception and the great Cafe downstairs ... You know Ive stayed in hotels in other countrys where the only option is to stay in your room and get bored ... The townhouse is unique in my opinion in... More

This place exist since quite an eternity already. And by that has seen his best times since a while! Only to recommend for people on a very small, limited budget. Every room is just different. Not two of the same. But what they all do have in common, is that cleanliness isn't very high. The owner is called Bill. An... More
