    Very helpful when I needed them. There is some confusion with the old address and new address. Go to the old address and look for the security guard. The security guard at the new address will frustrate you (he is too serious and strict) I got my Johnson & Johnson vaccine during my travels. Use Grab app and pay cash. You cannot use your Debit card with Grab unless you upgrade your status. This is not good for foreigners who may visit for a short time. MiniStop has basic needs and fried chicken.

    I have nothing to say So disappointing! When we reached the place It turns out like We wasted our time. They cancelled our booking and just as apologize for the inconvenient. Refund my money regardless what effort we had. Luckily I controlled myself that time to show some patience and understanding. I will never recommend anyone to book there. Worst experience ever. Plus the place is not too friendly. Just look like my old house.

    First, front desk clerks are not customer friendly, not safe because the room doors can’t close. E fan is not available to the room unless you have to rent with a very exorbitant amount. I decided to moved out on that same day because of the atmosphere and surroundings. Not recommendable.

    The staff incharge is not friendly, not accomodating also the place you cant recognize it easily. When we arrive at tje place the staff told us that it's not the one that we book from the Hostel. We should go to the other place which she said its not comportable and noisy becaise there still an on going construction in the area and if we sleep their we have accompanied by the construction workers and its not safe. We stayed in Townhouse Manila and the saff told us that we need to add another 700
