When a loved one is sick and needs to be hospitalized, the instinct is always to be close by so that the minute they are well, being by their side is possible with just the snap of a finger.

It is hard to imagine not going through the usual feeling of helplessness as your heart races with worry when the phone rings, especially at the most ungodly hour, while you anxiously wait at home. Well, it doesn’t have to be so. Because at The Medical City (TMC) Hostel, you can take care of your loved ones and have peace of mind since you are always only a few steps away and easily within reach. 

The newly renovated TMC Hostel—a hotel within a hospital since 2013— offers immeasurable convenience to patients’ families. They no longer have to stay in a hotel near the hospital just to ensure they are always near when needed. The facility has 21 rooms, of which 17 are standard, three premiere twin rooms, and one family room. All are aesthetically designed to promote a relaxing, comfortable ambiance far from the familiar feeling one gets in a hospital.

Each room offers must-have amenities such as a stocked mini-refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee warmer, tea set, telephone, flat-screen television, and the indispensable free WI-FI. Room kits for all guests also provide a towelette, cotton buds with cotton swabs, a dental kit, toiletries, a comb, and two pairs of slippers to address and pamper the guests’ needs.

The reception is strategically placed in the middle of the floor, providing easy access for guests from both sides of the wing. Situated directly in front of the reception is a mini lounge area where guests can wait while their check-in is in process. The Front Desk is open 24 hours daily.

Within the Hostel, a few steps from the reception, is its Business Lounge. This facility may be used by guests who, aside from having an admitted patient, must also make sure things at the office go smoothly. The Lounge can also be used for family-related gatherings. A guest pantry with a refrigerator and microwave is also provided for guests to store and reheat food and beverages.

TMC’s official food partner, Kitchen City, prepares daily a complimentary breakfast meal. Guests can choose, if they desire, from a good selection of Filipino or American menus. Suppose they wish to order lunch or dinner, the Front Desk can arrange it for them, or they can order directly through the Hostel Online Services. A QR Code is provided in each room, making it accessible to guests anytime.

The TMC Hostel was relaunched on May 26, 2022, after an extensive overhaul of the rooms, including the hallways. It was attended by TMC executives, clients, and friends from the media.

Aside from the families of admitted patients, the Hostel also offers lodging for Outpatients. Individuals who reside far from the hospital or outside Metro Manila can take advantage of the hostel accommodations while waiting for their test results or laboratory procedures to be completed.

The Hostel understands the spiritual and religious requirements of its guests. It places a high value on the observance of practices by its guest. A prayer room is available anytime, and Muslim prayer mats and Qur’an are available upon request. Guests are also entitled to use the complimentary roundtrip airport transfers and shuttle service to and from the Ortigas shopping center, subject to availability, and prior arrangement is required.

Walk-in guests will be accommodated depending on room availability. Interested individuals must fill out a guest information sheet before going to the hospital. Once the guests have checked in, they may stay at the Hostel for as long as they need as there are no limitations on the number of days they may stay.

Now, staying in a hospital has never been this memorable!

The most reasonable hostel prices are offered here, which are at par with other hotels in the Ortigas Business District. For a unique experience that will surely last, stay at The Medical City’s -Hostel and have a worry-free, pleasant and wonderful time.
