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.
