Knowing Yogyakarta Indonesia

Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

Budget Accommodation: BGC Panay Kain at Tulog

Back then I would only stay in a nice, clean and comfortable hotel beds because I want comfort and total relaxation. But to my surprise and since I am being a "budgetarian" traveler I started staying in a much affordable choice - A Hostel. My thinking before when I hear about the hostel is a dirty, old building however I am totally wrong. One of the newest hostel chain in the Philippines is BGC Hostel with 4 branches: Makati, Manila, Quezon City and Bulacan. Panay Kain at Tulog is operated by BGC Hostel chain and located at 23 Panay Avenue Quezon City.

Getting there via commute:

Coming from North - ride any jeepney / FX going to Pantranco Hiway Panay. Drop off infront of BGC Panay kain at Tulog Hostel.

Coming from Manila / Quiapo - ride any jeepney / FX going to Rotonda / Quezon City. Drop off to Panay Ave and turn right on the first street and you will see Panay Kain at Tulog Hostel.

Every BGC branch has its own theme. Here in Panay Kain at Tulog, the reception / lobby area is very posh, chic and modern. Any Instagram addict will surely enjoy every corner of this room, I mean, who wouldn't right? I think it's even perfect for a prenup / pre-debut pictorial.


The hostel has 8 private rooms and 7 dorm rooms. Dorm room has 76 bed and cost per bed is 450 PHP / 9.7 USD (PROMO RATE till January 2017). Regular rate is 499 PHP / 10.85 USD. Each bed has its own power socket and lamp shade with a curtain for added privacy. Dorm rate per month is only 2,800 PHP / 60.8 USD per head / per bed. 

For private rooms, 4 room will share 1 dining area and 2 toilets and bath. Each room has a double bed, with air condition, linens, bedside table, clothes rack and vanity mirror. My only concern in my private room is that it doesn't have a lampshade.


Aside from its good location, clean rooms, the building also has 3 classy restaurants at the ground floor. 3 restaurant that offers Filipino cuisine, international cuisine and a cafe selling breads and pastries. 

With its prime location, hostel room rate is so cheap. Inside and outside the building is Instagram-worthy.

  1. Woah! I didn't expect all of those pics! Thanks for sharing :) This is really a helpful information.. not all cheap accommodation are old and dirty :D


  2. I thought before I read the entire post this hostel is located in our region IV, particularly in Panay as what the name so suggested. I was wrong. It is located in Manila, particularly in Panay Avenue in Quezon City. This place for travelers and transient occupants may serve them best. It is indeed a classy kind of hostel with a clean environs and everything.

  3. I like the interiors of this hostel. It looks elegant and classy. That's nice to know that they have other branches as it gives us more choices. :-)

  4. I love staying in hostels as well. Best place to get to know new people when traveling...

  5. The accommodation has a very artsy feel. It makes the place a lot more refreshing.

  6. Wow what an attractive exterior! I do hope I can try out staying at a hostel when I have time for a simple staycation. I am near this area so I can check this out.

  7. I've heard of many nice themed hostels too! I think the main difference between most hotels and hostels are the sound-proof rooms, private toilets and facilities. The colourful exterior + interior are indeed very instagram-ish!

  8. This budget accomodation doesn't look that budget. Quite decent and clean. I liked that colorful windows a lot.

  9. Even though you have mentioned it is a budget accommodation but I feel it has all the facilities for a tourist to stay.

  10. Yes, it's true, the meaning of hostel comes when different people assumes the place according to his/her experience. The themes are very colorful and awesome.

  11. That lobby looks gorgeous! I'm surprised it's a budget hostel!

  12. For a budget hostel, it looks pretty attractive. How's the wifi connection? What other amenities do they have to offer aside from room accommodations?

  13. The hostel looks nice, love the ambiance. I want to try to ride on the jeepney, looks exciting!

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas.
