Dormitos PH | Capsule hotel review (Cubao)

Traveling can both be exciting and tiring at the same time. But what if we found a hotel SO INTERESTING that it can still serve as part of your itinerary. Can you keep up? Would you like to have a glimpse experience of the future? Well, the great news here is that you can stay in it for as long as you can.

We found a gem in the heart of Cubao, Quezon city situated at 115 Harvard St. where it seems like the present meets the future a little too early. It is pioneering the trend of making our futuristic homes a step closer. Dormitos PH, one of the first hotels to introduce the Japanese-style capsule resting/sleeping pods in the country.

Okay.. Let's tackle the daunting issues right away:

There is plenty of room inside
There is plenty of room inside


"Capsule sleeping pods? But I have claustrophobia or am claustrophobic. I am afraid of small, tight, and compressed spaces."

- Guys, the pod is big enough sizing at 8-feet long and 4-feet wide & height
- You may leave your door open as long as your valuables are in the safe
- You may leave the lights open while sleeping if it helps
- There is a huge mirror inside and the interiors are bright-colored making it look & feel bigger
- It's comfy enough for you not to get your sleep well
* The staff told me that some claustro-people made it alive and conquered their fear here so maybe it is time to fight-it off

Since we are in the capsule pods already, let's tackle its features:

2. Air-fan temperature controller 
3. Wifi signal

5. Adjustable ambient mood lighting set-up 
6. Fold-able/detachable table for laptop use and more 
7. mini-vault for wallets and other valuable items

Next are the inside of the bathroom/restroom: "Do they have water bidet?"

> Bidet - THEY HAVE IT!  (I know many of you are glad about this including me! Haha!)
> Shower (hot/cold water) 
> Toiletries includes the following: towel, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo with conditioner  
> Big elegant beautifying mirrors (lol)

The vibe: "What does it feel like staying there?"

First thing that came to mind was the movie "Passengers" by Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, Second was  the capsule pods Bulma is using on Dragon Ball Z (for anime lovers out there) and Third is "The Martian" of Matt Damon - except that food is abundant when you go out of the pods area lol.

So if you are fond of Sci-fi (science fiction) movies like me, well, I am pretty sure you'll dig their interiors.

Check-in and check-out times:

Check-in time: 2:00 PM
Check-out time: 11:00 AM

Booking: "What are the methods of booking do they honor and with what payment methods?"

They are visible to a lot of booking sites already but of course, using their official website will still be the best way. If you are used to calling and hearing them on the other line, feel free to call them using their official telephone no..  Currently, they are open for Paypal payments (I guess some credit cards too) and bank transfers for bookings/reservations. They really respond fast on emails and messengers (Facebook) so don't hesitate to contact them if you prefer alternatives.

Update: They now accept payments thru GCash 

Price: "How much per night/month?"
*All rates include wifi, water, and electricity already

MONTHLY RATE

The regular rate is priced at P16,000. But as of the moment, their introductory price rate is temporarily down to P8,800

DAILY RATE

The regular rate is priced at P1,600. But as of the moment, their introductory price rate is temporarily down to P800

Guys, if you will be doing the calculations especially the monthly rate.. that is as affordable as P267 or $6 per day (for the monthly rate as given). It includes your electricity and water bills already. A "no-brainer" deal, the best offer yet with all the given unique features Dormitos have..

  16. They're kind of cool, almost space-agey and great if you're travelling. Not sure if they would work for families, but they are a really great idea for travelling on a budget and a much better alternative to a youth hostel.

    1. Yep. I think the main customers are the bachelors/ettes travelers and the call center agents living nearby..

  35. This looks really futuristic. However, I am claustrophobic so I would find it difficult to crawl in there and lock the door. My sons would love to try this. They are so fascinated with the whole NASA and outer space so this like being in a spaceship. I will let them now.
