Back then I would only stay in a nice, clean and comfortable hotel beds because I want comfort and total relaxation. But to my surprise and since I am being a “budgetarian” traveler I started staying in a much affordable choice – A Hostel. My thinking before when I hear about the hostel is a dirty, old building however I am totally wrong. One of the newest hostel chain in the Philippines is BGC Hostel with 4 branches: Makati, Manila, Quezon City and Bulacan. Panay Kain at Tulog is operated by BGC Hostel chain and located at 23 Panay Avenue Quezon City.
Getting there via commute:
Coming from North – ride any jeepney / FX going to Pantranco Hiway Panay. Drop off infront of BGC Panay kain at Tulog Hostel.
Coming from Manila / Quiapo – ride any jeepney / FX going to Rotonda / Quezon City. Drop off to Panay Ave and turn right on the first street and you will see Panay Kain at Tulog Hostel.
Every BGC branch has its own theme. Here in Panay Kain at Tulog, the reception / lobby area is very posh, chic and modern. Any Instagram addict will surely enjoy every corner of this room, I mean, who wouldn’t right? I think it’s even perfect for a prenup / pre-debut pictorial.
HOSTEL ROOM / DORM / PRIVATE:
The hostel has 8 private rooms and 7 dorm rooms. Dorm room has 76 bed and cost per bed is 450 PHP / 9.7 USD (PROMO RATE till January 2017). Regular rate is 499 PHP / 10.85 USD. Each bed has its own power socket and lamp shade with a curtain for added privacy. Dorm rate per month is only 2,800 PHP / 60.8 USD per head / per bed.
For private rooms, 4 room will share 1 dining area and 2 toilets and bath. Each room has a double bed, with air condition, linens, bedside table, clothes rack and vanity mirror. My only concern in my private room is that it doesn’t have a lampshade.
Aside from its good location, clean rooms, the building also has 3 classy restaurants at the ground floor. 3 restaurant that offers Filipino cuisine, international cuisine and a cafe selling breads and pastries.
With its prime location, hostel room rate is so cheap. Inside and outside the building is Instagram-worthy.
