PWD

It’s just right to help PWDs. (image from diaryongtagalog.net)


Crossroads Hostel Manila will extend further discounts to Persons with Different Abilities (we prefer to call them that instead of ‘People with Disabilities’ or PWDs) or people with physical handicaps. They are as productive and as privileged as any citizen in this country, we believe.
The hostel will give them instant PhP25.00 discount per person, per night as its way to support their daily budgetary needs.
We’re not proud that we’re not 100% PDA-friendly, meaning, CHM is not equipped to have guides, ramps for wheel chairs, brail signs for the blind, and other tools and means to make their stay more enjoyable, but just the same this effort is a start and a recognition of providing them deals that will help them in their budget, at least.
If you have questions regarding this or any of our promotions, our property please do not hesitate to contact us today. Call +63 (920) 959 5747, (02) 984 9844 or (02) 514 0660 for more details.

Crossroads Hostel Manila is open to long-term staying guests. The idea is to help guests who want to take advantage of all the amenities at a very affordable rate where we include the cost of electricity, water, and gas in the daily rate we offer. This way, you — as a potential long-term guest — will not have a problem about paying what and how much utilities you pay plus you get free Internet access using our wifi in the property.
Here are requirements you need to fulfill once you have decided to take this deal:

  1. Two (2) pcs of valid government-issued identification cards
  2. Signed Lease Agreement
  3. Two months advance (Cash Only)
  4. Your Term Deposit (depending on length of stay)

Term Deposit works as an association dues that pay for the common areas of the hostel and has nothing to do with security deposits. In fact, we do not have any security deposits so any incidental matter will be billed separately and a contract will be signed for the purpose of agreeing with all the house rules, guidelines, and policies of Crossroads Hostel Manila. Also, monthly dues/fees must be paid five days before the end of the month or earlier provided the designated date of payment falls on a holiday or on a weekend. All contracts follow a “Pay-before-you-stay” policy, which means you are to strictly pay before you are allowed to reside in the hostel. Other rules apply.
Refer to our attached graphics below and see which one will be the most advantageous for you and give us a call immediately to make a visit or to finalise your stay with us. If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to email us at crossroadshostel@gmail.com or call us at (0920) 959 5747 or (02) 984-9844.

One of the most compelling reasons our guests tell us why they choose Crossroads Hostel Manila other than our friendly staff and service is our location but so what right? We’re here to detail three noteworthy things about our location and why this may play an important role in your selection of a property to have you, your guests, staff, and other travelers join us.

The green house is just the fifth structure from the street corner.

The green house is just the fifth structure from the street corner.

First, our proximity to transportation hubs for buses, trains, jeepneys, tricycles, and taxis. Other properties we have are not as close, so you either walk farther or you would need to ride a tricycle, which can add up to your daily expenses.

The hostel is literally 100 meters away or about 300 steps away. We’re so close to EDSA that you can’t help but trek outside our hostel and discover all the interesting nooks and crannies you can find. No long walks, awkward bus stops, hard to reach train stops — almost every public land transportation is just right there.

By the way, this is Crossing Area. If you look at the map of Metro Manila, you will find that the intersection of EDSA slices through East and West sides of the region. People converge here for business and family stuff so it’s one of the busiest but safest place to be in because of the sheer number of residents from this area that converges in this place. Crossing has more community feel. The commercial areas are across EDSA so this place, though is crowded, is friendlier and people are from around town so you can get familiar with the person you commute with every day.

Second, we’re at the fringes of the commercial districts of Ortigas and Greenfield. This means you can access hundreds and hundred of cafes, fastfood places, bars, restaurants, movie houses, fashion boutiques, department stores, supermarkets, and conference areas. Should I say more? These places are perfect to go to after a much needed respite from a hard day’s work.

Every mall, cafe, restaurant, and entertainment life is within your reach.

Third, we’re located atop a hill. In fact, the barangay’s name where we’re at is called Highway Hills. The hostel will never get flooded in the foreseeable future so our guests won’t have to worry if we’ll go under should more heavy downpour of rain persists throughout the remainder of the year or even years to come. By the way, did we mention the hostel is also built on top of a bed rock? This makes our property earthquake proof. We rarely feel the earth quake and we can assure you of that. The whole barangay sits on a solid rock so you’re safe and secure here.

We’re Crossroads Hostel Manila. We’re your hostel by EDSA and Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. We’re the most practical location for staff housing, backpacking accommodation, and other practical uses.

We're your place to stay if you will take your OJT within EDSA-Shaw area, Mandaluyong

We’re your place to stay if you will take your OJT within EDSA-Shaw area, Mandaluyong


We finally gave two medical departments of a nearby hospital our proposal yesterday. Our plan is to help students from all over the Philippines find a safe and decent place to stay in Mandaluyong while going through basic “On the Job” training programs in that hospital.
It’s no joke to travel hundreds of kilometers to a place where you do not know any one, let alone your first time to be by yourself nor even know a place where you can sleep in comfort and in peace.
In that proposal we offered students PhP200/night instead of the PhP600/night walk in rate we offer, which is almost 70% discount. It is also the lowest compared to our lowest rate we offered in agoda.com, which is PhP330 or almost 40% lower than that already-discounted rate on their website.
To avail this rate, students just need to show the following:

  1. Original authorization letter from their school signed by their Dean
  2. Parents’ letter of authorization with their phone numbers
  3. Parents’ copies of IDs
  4. Students copies of IDs
  5. Payment + Deposit

The deposit is non-refundable and is not part of the payment. For the duration of their stay, students need to make a non-refundable fee equivalent to 25% of the total fee they’re paying. Example is if the student will stay in the hostel for 7 nights, charged with PhP200/night, the student will pay 25% of this rate, which will only be PhP350.00. The said deposit will be used as a maintenance fee to support our operations and maintenance. There is no group rate, regular hostel rules will be followed, and payments can be made via our BDO account.
The head nurses, in charge of student affairs, who accepted my proposals were delighted to know that there’s a place that is walking distance or one ride away from their health center, however, we were late in submitting the proposal because this OJT season is about to start.
It is important to know too that this offer is not exclusive to medical students. It is offered to all students doing OJT in Metro Manila. If you are a student or a parent looking for a place to stay in Metro Manila and will be doing an OJT nearby Shaw-EDSA area then we’re your best location.
We are Crossroads Hostel Manila and we’re a non-smoking, family-oriented hostel property located in the heart of this metropolis. For more information visit http://bit.ly/manilahostel to see more pictures and reviews of our past clients.

2013 is exciting for Crossroads and part of this excitement is bearing a new name.
Actually, it’s just a modification. We’ve been flaunting it but we haven’t made any thing official about this announcement. The board is meeting now to vote on this new name so watch out for our future bulletins.

Come right in!


We are thrilled to share photos of our newly-renovated Hostel property (called Crossroads Hostel) located right smack at the center of Manila’s Metropolis.
Crossroads Backpackers Hostel took almost seven months to finish from the planned 30-bed, six-door property sitting on a 250 square-meter land in Mandaluyong. The Hostel got its name from the two, nearby main roads of the Metropolis that crosses each other here. Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) and Shaw Boulevard (two of the biggest business and trade thoroughfares) crosses each other and this gives Backpackers a very good edge in traveling, adventure-style in Metro Manila.
The new property is a stone’s throw away from the most rugged urban place you can find to the most-posh malls and location in town.
The nearest hospital is no more than one-hundred meters away (about 109 yards) and the iconic Filipino Jeepney passes through here so visitors like you can take pictures of it any time you want. The Light Rail Train is just meters away and so are the buses, the tricycles, the taxis.  That’s why getting to your destination whenever you want AND according to your budget is a cinch.
The best part about Crossroads Hostel are the features of the place especially the warmth and hospitality you’ll find in our property. We can never boast enough how we can make your travel the safest yet the most comfortable – we think – you can ever have. So come right in and check out the pictures we took just this morning with my wife and try staying with us on your next trip.
