The surrounding neighborhood is nothing to look forward to, but the couple who work there (Hilda and Eduardo) were quite friendly and energetic ... along with all the other employees. I will remember the Chicken/Lemon Grass/ Ginger soup they made for one of the free breakfasts.
Pay 8 pesos for a jeepnee ride to the Guadalupe MRT station. Or walk the other direction down JP Rizal road and look for an upscale mall, PowerPlant with some decent Western food court resturaunts.
For the price, I have no serious complaints. I will stay there again. Ed from the USA
