Property Information:

The Townhouse Hotel / Hostel Manila owned and operated by Bill and Lorna, after traveling the world in the 1970s and 80s after high school and university, stayed in guest houses, yeogwans, pensionnes, ryokans, campgrounds and native style beach huts then decided to start a family so in 1986, opened the doors of their 3 bedroom 2 bath Villa Carolina Townhouse unit #31 as a hobby to welcome world travelers on a budget.

After a few years by word of mouth among backpackers, starting with 5 Swedish young men they'd met in Hong Kong who were heading to the Philippines, being added to the Lonely Planet and Jens Peters travel guides eventually 3000 to 4000 travelers passed through each and every year since the early 1990s.

The Townhouse Hotel / Hostel Manila provides a basic simple unisex 6 bed fan cooled share bath dormitory at P200 / bedspace, 9 basic fan cooled, share bath private rooms for P400 / P500 / night / 1 or 2 persons + P150/ extra person, 8 fan cooled rooms with private bath / Cable TV / P600 / P700 / night /1 or 2 persons and 15 air-conditioned rooms with private bathroom, electric hot shower, Cable TV, P1000 /night / 1 or 2 persons P150 / extra person(s) After the European Union formed in 1993 for 10 years, the younger generation in Europe found it more difficult to save up for travels to Asia for more than 6 to 8 weeks so we welcomed more Filipino overseas workers, Filipino students, Balikbayans, Philippines' provincial business owners both foreigners and Filipinos and foreign expat retirees, all on low budgets in a safe, clean and friendly place to stay in Manila near all 4 Manila airports, NAIA 1, NAIA 2, NAIA 3 and NAIA 4. Now, after continuous improvements and expansion projects our guesthouse style hotel / hostel has evolved into 4 townhouse units with 26 unique bedrooms (no 2 rooms the same) in the main building of 4 attached Townhouse units, #30, #31, #32, #33 and 6 fan cooled budget rooms & 6 bed spaces in our 5th Townhouse unit # 11 a short 65 meter walk down Bayview Drive away from Roxas Blvd so more quiet.

    We chose to stay at this hostel because we arrived late at the pasay bus terminal and had to catch a plane the next day. So the location seemed perfect. The area is super creepy.The hostel itself is filthy, our bathroom didn't have any water and we saw the biggest cockroaches ever! When talking to the staff they said they couldn't do anything because their boss isn't there. They give you all those tips so you don't get ripped off by the taxi drivers but they themselves rip you off!
