Let me just give you a quick tour of what’s inside Dormitos Hotel. Together with Rodel Flordeliz, our excitement got higher when we saw the pods!

Dormitos Hostel also designed the hostel with a very organized lockers. When you get your key cards, it will also correspond to the number of your locker and I find this very helpful and in order!

As they want to maintain cleanliness, they made sure that all of the guests’ shoes have a special rack in front of the lockers.

This first Japanese-style capsule hostel are hosting 100 pods! Sixty (60) of these are dedicated for women which is located at their fifth floor by the way, and forty (40) pods for male at the third floor. Good thing about Dormitos is that, you can only access the floors where you are assigned. The common area at the third floor also is your place to eat, they have a small pantry where you can prepare your food.

The concept of Dormitos Hostel is very promising in such a way that it provides basic overnight accommodation at a very affordable price for guests who do not require or who cannot afford larger, more expensive rooms offered by more conventional hotels. I personally loved my stay!
