Close. Open. It’s like a game adults play with kids and these bed curtains are a new feature that our guests will enjoy when they plan to play…er…stay with us on their next vacation. It’s no big deal, really, but we couldn’t help taking a picture of it and show you how fun, functional, and practical these things could be. All thirty of our beds this coming January of the new year will have these features standard. And speaking of new year, we’ll offer PhP100.00 discount to the first Twenty persons who will stay with us and enjoy this and all our high value offers at Crossroads Hostel. What’s the catch? We just want your picture in the most fun and funny pose you can share us. Are you game? So are we. Book now!

Yes, you’ve probably seen those Hyatt, Resortworld Hotels ads but you probably don’t know that Hostels can be as fun and classy as it can be (from Jumbo Jets, To Court Room Houses, and Prisons!) to delight its travelers here and abroad.
Learn more from Colm Hanratty what Hostels are and see what it can do for you, your wallet, and your travels around the world.

By the way, include us in your itinerary if you want to save up on lodging budget when you visit Metro Manila to spend your holidays here!
Why spend US$75/night (or more!) on a luxury room in a hotel when luxury – in The Philippines – can be found in the sights, sounds, and the memories you will remember forever about Metro Manila and surrounding beaches and resorts nearby?
“Saving more to experience more” seems to be my battle cry when it comes to traveling to places you will take pictures and videos of your tours and adventures. I remember our trip to Europe and the help I got from my brother back in 2011. He said to stay in a Hostel or Bed and Breakfast (B&B) places in Rome so we can save more money for other things. I was hesitant at first but I can’t complain too because my mom was paying for my family’s trip as well. So off we went to see Italy and we made it all worth it because we saved a lot of Euros just by staying in a B&B place. Imagine not enjoying Italy or Singapore fearing you won’t be able to enjoy the food, the destinations, and the warmth of people themselves.
Hostels or B&B homes are your regular homes. The same places you and I lived in when we were little but the only difference is, it’s now turned to something more useful for visiting tourists and guests.
I turned that experience into what Crossroads Hostel is for our visiting guests. Rooms are air-conditioned, beds are like the ones I grew up on and the hospitality is none like Filipinos are known for. What best is, I’ve served all my guests personal hot breakfast meals and that is what I’m training my staff to do so you get the best quality for your money.
You just don’t save a lot but you expand the worth and value of your money and your stay. This way, you bring home more souvenirs, more stories, and more memories about The Philippines and yes, Crossroads Hostel too if you like.
