GwapoTel, the Cheapest Hotel in Manila?

If you’re on a tight budget, and don’t mind privacy, then Gwapotel is for you.

For 25 pesos per 10 hours, you can have your own sleeping space. The 5 pesos is actually a fee for a shower.

Gwapotel is popular among backpackers, laborers or workers who lived very far from Metro Manila.

Gwapotel is not just the cheapest temporary accommodation in Manila, but the whole of the Philippines.

There are two Gwapotels: First one is in Bonifacio Drive, Port Area, Manila. The second is in Tondo, Manila. But the Tondo branch is facing closure because of the lack of occupants.

Gwapotel’s telephone numbers:
882-4151 to 77 loc. 317 and look for Mr. Amante Salvador.

    i tried gwapotel for one night . i dont know kung may electric fan . sbi ng guard ingat sa mga gamit bakit ? rampant ba ang magnanakaw. Okey ang gwapotel para sa akin except lang sa shower room medyo di okey dahil sira shower curtain dapat po medyo improve nila . nakaktulong ang gwapo tel sa katulad ko na walang kamaganak sa manila. Ang rate na binayran ko noon ay 60 pesos bakit bumaba po ba , ? mas maganda kung bumaba po siya . Maari po bang reply kayo dito sa email .

    Okay ang Gwapotel sa mga budget travelers or mga taga province na naghahanap ng matutuluyan sa manila. Kailangan lang po ng kaunting ingat.

      It’s best to rent a locker for your things. Thanks Titus.
