TACLOBAN CITY | Only 10 minutes away from Tacloban Airport, I found a nice hostel that you may want to consider staying in when in Tacloban. Hit by a catastrophic typhoon Yolanda back in 2013, Tacloban has survived and now is a bustling city full of places to explore.
Since I was traveling solo en-route to my caving adventure in Samar, I was searching for a place to stay that is within my budget range. This was made more difficult as my flight was arriving at night, Luckily I found, HIS CAPSULE HOSTEL.
His Capsule Hostel Address
Opened in June 2018, this new hostel is located in Brgy. 75, Fatima Village, Tacloban. Though it may look like a house from the outside, it started becoming a favorite hang out area for backpackers and solo travelers alike. The hostel is basically a few minutes’ jeepney/ tricycle ride away from the airport and downtown area of Tacloban.
You can park your vehicle in their very spacious parking space which is ideal if you are doing some land travelling around Leyte or Samar area.
Also known as the Pods, capsule beds originated in Japan in the early 70’s providing a quick place to sleep and rest. Now, it is becoming a trend worldwide, not just because it’s so cool but also an ideal type of accommodation for those who are backpackers or those people only staying for a night or a quick stopover.
His Capsule Hostel has:
- 26 single Capsule Beds
- 6 Couple Capsule Beds
- 2 Barkada Rooms with toilet and bath
- 2 Family Rooms with toilet and bath
- High Speed Wi-Fi
- Hot and Cold Bath
- Complimentary Toiletries,
- Air-conditioned Rooms
- Lamp in every capsule
For solo travelers or backpackers, you can stay in one of the 26 single capsule beds for Php 500.00 [ Upper Deck] and Php 600.00 [ Lower Deck] . It comes with its own lamp and electrical plug inside if you wish to charge your gadgets.
Located on the 2nd level of the hostel, you will find the Barkada and the Family rooms. Each room has its own toilet and bath and also a combination of single and double beds.
For guests staying in capsules, clean common toilet and baths are also available. Even if you are not guests, you can also use this amenity at a very affordable rate.
If you wish to sleep with someone or traveling as a couple, well the option is to get a capsule bed that is good enough for 2 persons.
His Capsule Hostel has 2 Family Rooms to choose from that can accommodate 7 – 8 persons with the price range of Php 2450.00 – Php 2800.00 . That is not bad at all for the whole family. Compared to capsule beds, the double decker beds are divided with a curtain only.
Aside from the spacious parking, His Capsule Hostel is a famous hang out place for students doing group studies because of a fast internet connection and a quiet atmosphere. They also have a Function Hall that can cater to different types of parties, events, seminars and much more. And one place that I really like to hang out is the terrace located at the back of the hostel overlooking Cancabato Bay.
I am very pleased that I found His Capsule Hostel in Tacloban City. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The sleep quality was really good, toilet and bath worked well and was clean and most of all, one of the most affordable accommodation you could find in Tacloban City!
