Stayed one night and don't think I could have stayed longer.
There are 3 bathrooms and 3 shower units that are shared. They were relatively clean, although I wore flip flops. The AC and TV worked fine. The sheets were clean and the bed was comfortable.
The only complaint I had was the walls were SUPER thin!! I could hear every hear from the next room and had a hard time sleeping even with ear plugs!

Room Tip: If you want to avoid noise from the entrance and hallway traffic, stay in rooms #5 or higher.

Quite a bargain for 800 pesos a night. The rooms were clean as well as the beds (although the sheets had a very strong smell of fabric softener). The common showers and toilets were also aplenty and pretty clean, much to my surprise. There were 3 showers and toilets on my floor, with about 15 rooms. For 800P, I was also pleasantly surprised that they provided towels and toiletries free of charge. The hotel staff and bell boys hanging out downstairs were pretty informative and helpful too, willing to tell you where to go and how to get around Pasay.

However the walls are thin, and you can easily hear it if people are having a conversation in the common corridor. But everything should quieten down by night time.

I'd say it's a really good place to crash and transit if you need to go to Terminal 4 (Domestic Terminal) although I don't think it's that near the main terminal in NAIA.

This place has the perfect location for travelers to rest in between flights. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were well kept and clean. Nothing fancy but very convenient. Few minutes away from the terminals, and restaurants. I was well rested and fully charged the following day for my next flight. A great place to stay and you can't beat the price.

This place is extremely close to terminal 4. So close where it would be pointless to take a cab because they would literally drive you like 50 feet and drop you off. Chances are you won't be flying into terminal 4 though and the 4 terminals at Manila airport are not connected to each other. I flew into terminal 1 and they have a airport shuttle bus that leaves every 30 minutes and drives between all terminals. The cost of this shuttle bus is only 20 pesos so it is the cheapest option. Once at terminal 4 simply walk over the overpass and towards the shakeys pizza which you will see on the shuttle bus over to terminal 4. Turn right as soon as you pass the quick mart and you will see it on the right side. There is just a little sign that you could probably walk by if you weren't looking for it.

The room I am in is about 6.6ft by 11ft if I had to guess so quite small but serves its purpose well. Air conditioning worked well and I actually had to turn it down because I was getting cold in the middle of the night. Like others have said walls are extremely thin so bring earplugs if random noise bothers you. Bathrooms are shared but that has been no problem and they were spotless clean when I was in them. The two workers I have encountered were very nice. There is a 100 peso deposit on your key which you get back when you turn it in. Wifi is free and works well enough. Not super fast by any means but gets the job done.

Overall this is a great place to stay if you want to stay close to the airport...I can't see anyone finding a better option for the price...I tried.

Let's be perfectly frank. You're looking for a place to crash on the cheap, very near to Manila Airport. Well, this is it. The rooms are clean, the a/c works well (both rooms I have stayed in had good a/c), and there is a guard posted. And it's cheap.
The negatives: The room can be noisy (earplugs) and the room gets bright as the sun rises due to the lack of proper shades (time to get on your plane anyway).
The service is fine, and the nearby 24 hour food options are handy.

Room Tip: Ambien. Or maybe "away from the road and nightclubs," but I'm not sure such a room ex...

This Guest House is about a 5 minute walk from the Domestic Airport, across the street. Take the overpass walk way bridge.

It is directly across from a 24 hour Shakeys Pizza and many other places to eat nearby. This tells you that there is traffic in and out of the area all night and may get noisy if your room is on that side.

The front desk person was friendly. There seems to be NO security or very limited that we could see. The rooms are located up stairs that are also not secured or even part of the reception entrance area.

The rooms are simple, with one or two beds. Wi-Fi is there if it reaches. For us, one of the biggest draw backs to this place is the SHARED BATHROOM or CR. I am just not into it and brings issues of cleanliness into play. The room walls are paper thin and you can expect noise at night with people talking, coming or going or other things.

Rooms cost P1500 per night for 2, add P399 for a third person in your room. If you do NOT mind the shared bathroom, this is a better choice than the nearby Rogers Place which costs nearly twice as much. My other concern with this place is security and I advise you not to leave things in the room and to carry your valuables with you. For most people, including us, this is a crash pad and not a place to explore Manila from. Its closeness the airport is its only redeeming quality, making it easy and cheap to have a place to crash overnight while waiting for your connecting flight. You can find places in Makati for this same price or near to it with a full private room and private bath with better security.

Ask for a discount when you get there as this place is also infested with people in the area that were touts trying to bring us to this Guest House. This tells me someone is being paid a commission and if so, there may be room for a discount if no touts tag you. Ask for a discount if no tout follows you inside as they persistently tried to do with us even after we asked them to let us alone.
