GOING TO ANY TRIP YOU DONT NEED A ROOM FULL OF AMENITIES. AS LONG AS YOUR COMFORTABLE IN YOUR STAY AFTER YOUR 8-10 HOURS GOING around manila. you need a rest. so you have to sleep. you don't need a ref, a tv a phone a wifi in your room bacause you might not sleep comfortably the whole night. and your next day itinirary may tiring because you lack sleep.

Went there to book a room and the woman treated my wife as if she was a street girl. Made her so uncomfortable i went back and told her how we felt. Massive indifference.
Spoke to someone staying there on the way out he liked it but complained of staff attitude in a certain situation.
Location seemed ok and room seemed largel
I think good value for money.
just lose the attitude.
The assessment of rooms value and cleanliness is just on visiting impression.It may be wrong.
I didn't stay there.

bye bye.

Called them from the airport 10PM, they offered me a dorm with ease and took well care of me when I reached. Good stay for backpackers. The passing street seems a bit rough but I felt safe inside the gates. Seems like a waterhole for US NGO workers, interesting crowd that will say...

Room Tip: Take lowbunk in the dorm if you dont want to have morning sun in the face in room 18.

We been staying in Natividad Pensions since many many years. It's a very convenient place with a good location (5 mins. walking distance to Robinsons Mall) and if you get in and out by taxi you won't get jammed. They serve a decent breakfast too and there is wifi in some areas. This is a perfect place for backpackers and travelers that like to meet other people. It's an old mansion with an outside sitting area. You can get your own locker, with your own padlock and even leave things here while you travel around the country.

The only downside is that the rooms are really old. But they are clean and big. There are people sleeping in the street nearby, but they are harmless and Gaby feeds them once a week and gives them save water. Some of the people I have noticed for many years and they great us friendly. We have always felt really safe here.

We stayed here twice: on our very first and very last night in Manila. The area is a bit dodgy: a lot of homeless people on the streets where you find casino's and very upperclass hotels.

The pension is fantastic though: great rooms with big beds, very clean and with functioning fans. There's nice food, friendly staff, a nice outside area, free wifi and private lockers for valuables. Highly recommended when you really need to be in Manila.

Peace corps volunteers stay here and love this place. Basic rooms with hot showers. Fan rooms aren't too bad. The staff is amazing and so helpful. They also serve good food and awesome chocolate oat bars! :) It's right around the corner from a Robinson's mall also.

We stayed here on numerous occassions in Feb 2010. The staff were very helpful, we felt secure with the attendant on the gates and the room was very quiet and clean. If i visit manilla again i will definately stay here again. The breakfast is also very nice.
