 We’re near the Ortigas CBD where the MRT Shaw Station is. Call +639373780400 for more details. (Photo: cityadpics-flickr.com)


HELP IS HERE! As our way to help those who need it: if you’re working in the area of Ortigas tomorrow, Monday, 13th August and in need of a warm-dry place to stay because your home is affected by the current weather system, we’re extending a special offer to you to help you cope with the current conditions we’re facing.
Any one who checks in today, Sunday, 12 August until Wednesday, 15th of August and books directly with us — for as long as we have a place to offer — we’re giving PhP300 discount on our already low daily rates. The residual rates will help us maintain the place and it will help you cope with daily expenses you need.
Discounts are ONLY APPLICABLE thru direct and walk-in bookings and on regular rates.
We will not apply the discounts on bookings made thru agoda.com, booking.com, expedia.com, hostelworld.com, traveloka.com, and other online travel agency sites offering our services.
Senior discounts and Persons with Disability discounts still apply over discounted rates.
All guests availing the discounts and checking in must have valid government-issued IDs and must pay cash with security deposits upon checking in.
We close our doors at 8pm for security reasons so all guests getting this deal must check in before this time. Check out times are still 12NN daily.

Tired of paying more for a business meeting and appointment for you or your staff? This is the place to go.
Why? We meet your business budget to have a decent and secured space where budget is not a problem. We’re affordable at PhP699/night/guest and you have premium access to our hostel amenities such as 50mbps wifi, heated showers, aircon dorm rooms, free access to kitchen, and more at a fraction of a cost of what you may pay for a place in this Central Business District area.
We attract business people and those who have commitments in Ortigas and why not? We’re a minute walk to the Shaw Boulevard MRT station where you can ride this going to the airport for a total budget of only PhP40.00/way.
As it is, traditional motels and inns offer higher rates but don’t really provide value-added service. 3-Star Hotels are good and very comfortable, but most business people wouldn’t want to shell out more money for they just stay there to sleep. Spending more than PhP3,500/night is not really cost efficient.
As a shared accommodation, Crossroads Hostel Manila is a growing alternative (and favorite!) for business owners and business professionals. We offer shared spaces among travelers with bunk beds (double-deck beds) that allow more guests to room in giving some travelers the ability to have co-workers join them in one room.
It’s an optimal choice for small business owners with limited budget, likewise, big businesses can take advantage of it too who sends group of delegates to Metro Manila.
Again for as little as PhP599/guest/night (Weekday nights rate) versus PhP1,000+/guest/night in other nearby accommodations, Crossroads Hostel Manila offers full use of their kitchen and its amenities, air-conditioned rooms, secured lockers, heated showers, cable television viewing and comfortable single beds complete with bedding and towels and many more. Their Internet access is up to 50mbps using cable broadband technology so more people can share Internet speed.
Not only is it affordable but it offers decent rooms and functional amenities

Crossroads Hostel Manila opens its doors to Ortigas area workers wanting to have stress-free shopping experience by staying in our hostel until the next day to relax.


WE’RE OPENING OUR DOORS to local residents and other travelers to try our hostel for their Christmas Shopping Holiday needs.
Some possible scenarios and sentiments for you to better understand who we are trying to reach:
Richard: “I have to buy holiday gifts for my relatives but traffic is a huge problem and I need to do these shopping right now because I’ll be busy in the days to come. I wish there was a place I can stay that won’t charge a lot.”
Anna: “I have kuya and ate coming over and I don’t have a place for them to stay but it will be a great place to bond and go shopping the following day with them. Saan kaya?”
Jelay: “May Christmas party ako sa lugar na ito pero wala akong matutuluyan. Paano kaya ito, malayo pa man din ako nakatira. Meron kayang affordable place dito na puwede ako maka-rent na mura?”

Just 100 meters from EDSA and you’ll have more time shopping because how close we are in malls and other dining destinations


Crossroads Hostel Manila is conveniently located near MRT  Shaw Blvd Station and malls where you can shop and dine. We’re a budget accommodation for travelers who have different needs. So why not shop, sleep in our hostel this weekend, and leave the following day for a traffic-free ride back home. Yeah?
Our hostel, a dorm-type accommodation, welcomes male and female guests. When you stay with us, you are given help — help to your budget and to the constraints you may have during these year-end days.
Our facilities are air-conditioned and you pay not just the matress and linens that come with the bed but also free use of kitchen, fast Internet speeds of up to 50mbps, Premium Cable Television viewing in our community space, and customer service that will make you feel like you’re home away from home.
VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER
Because we’re not a 24-7 facility, you have to pre-Check In before you do your shopping so you can grab your keys after you’ve paid your overnight stay and surrendered your government-issued IDs. Also, remember that the place is strictly for paid guests so this means unregistered guests cannot stay inside the facilities.
So plan your schedules ahead and tell us — for as much as we can — how can we help your accommodation needs for you or your friends and family.

Our hardworking government workers deserve all the help they need.

Effective immediately, we’re giving 10% privilege to active government personnel who will be staying with us from this day on.
This is no stunt. We have nothing to gain from this. It is just right to give public servants this privilege as they work hard to meet their monthly budget as they travel to Metro Manila to fulfill their obligations in light of their work in service.
We were moved to do this as frequent travelers from the Department of Trade and Industry Baguio and other provinces come to this part of the region to expose a ton of indigenous products that will surely make any Filipino proud. These workers, with their meager budget and per diem, spend an average of three nights in our hostel and they do a lot of good to our creative and hardworking entrepreneurs and workers in the provinces to offer their products to adventurous kababayans and/or foreigners coming to expos in the nearby SM Megamall.
This initiative will surely help them meet their budget and provide them with more power to their purse and enjoy the work they do while they’re here in this part of Metro Manila.
To you who are working for our government, just show your Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) card, Civil Service Commission card, or your active and valid government-issued ID and we’ll extend you the markdown rate immediately. The discount is applied to both regular or promo rate to give you more mileage to your stay with us.  This can also be in conjunction with existing discounts we provide to give you more advantage.
More power to you an see you soon in our hostel.

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.

Instead paying per night, why not pay in bulk?

Instead paying per night, why not pay in bulk?


Crossroads Hostel Manila (CHM), is extending special rates to business owners and business organizations located mostly in provinces to give them more mileage for out town stay in our hostel in Metro Manila.
Introducing CHM Bulk. CHM Bulk, as the name implies, ‘bulk’ will give your operations budget better peso mileage by offering huge discounts much lower than our standard offer of PhP600/night. Why is that important? Accommodation rates in Metro Manila range from PhP700/12 hours stay (in a motel) to as high as about PhP2,000.00/night in a three-star hotel. Your company may be looking for a better deal to efficiently invest in an opportunity of housing staff and employees in Metro Manila while attending to business-led seminars and conferences in this area.
What’s more — CHM Bulk is transferable so you can use it for yourself, your team, or for any staff in your company. This way, you know you can use it once, twice, or use it all up in one or two Check Ins (because we can only accommodate thirty-guest at a “freed up day”).
As emphasized, our regular per night rate currently is anchored at PhP600 and you get more discounts if you book through agoda.com, hostelworld.com, and booking.com (thanks to them!) but with CHM Bulk, you pay as low as a third or 66% discount if your company avails of CHM Bulk.
You want 300/night rate? Pay only PhP15,000 minimum to get this deal. This gives you 50 nights of stay in our property.
The “highest” CHM Bulk per night rate is PhP375.00/night or PhP7,500 for a 20-night stay, which you can use at any time you like.
No credit card? Not a problem. We use Paypal to make billing easier for you. No need to be a Paypal member to use this feature — it’s that easy. You just tell us what you prefer and we can send you a bill immediately.
But this is only available to businesses so if you want to apply for one, you need to send us requirements to show that you are a business entity. So what are you waiting for? Email us now and we’ll get your started immediately. Contact us at crossroadshostel@gmail.com to apply or call (0920) 959 5747 for more information via Viber/Whatsapp.
Rates are exclusive of 10% service charge and tax and you need to pay 3% VAT, 2% City Tax.


If you’re the type of person who wants more privacy but don’t mind shelling out PhP1,200+ per night then you’re in for a treat! People who want more privacy can now avail of our properties that provide such comfort. For price points between PhP1,200 – PhP1,800+, you can avail of such rooms. Every thing is provided for in the kitchen, in the bedroom, in the bathroom…it’s like Crossroads Hostel Manila but with more privacy.
Downside: (A) Guests in these properties are to adhere strict rules imposed by the community where these rooms are located. You can rent these rooms for what it is advertised for. You will be evicted the moment these rules are violated. (B) This is a private community so free amenities to the unit owners does not mean it’s free for you to use. You may be asked for fees that can provide you access to such places as but not limit to swimming pool, weights room, and others.
Are you ready? Book now!

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.
