Its a decent and quiet family place. No smoking, overloud parties that will disturb fellow travellers.
We had a pleasant stay at Manila Postcards and got good guidance in advance to get there. The place is located a bit off the regular tourist spots in a nice neighbourhood. Expect to be the only foreigner around friendly but curious Philippinos. The room was basic but spotless and the staff was very friendly, welcoming and truly helpful. The only downside was the noise from the traffic which isn't kept outside by the thin walls. Earplugs are a must to get some sleep but that's an issue not exclusive to this place but all over Manila.
We spent a night at Jennifer's and overall, it was okay. We never met Jennifer but her helper, Jane, was great! She made us feel welcomed and showed us around the neighborhood. There were lots of restaurants and mini convenience stores. Throughout the night, there were constant noises but it didn't bother us sleeping. The AC was working well and the only downside is its location.
Had a wonderful stay in Santa Ana at Jennifer's. Jane the housekeeper was friendly and could help us with things like laundry and having Biko delivered to the door. Location was fairly easy to get to by jeepney. For directions, ignore (website hidden) and follow jen's directions. Internet speed was good for manila. Great value and you get to experience the second oldest neighbourhood in manila.
I had a great stay at Jen's. The room was clean and the housekeeper Jane very hospitable and nice. Very relaxing and comfortable time, I definitely recommend.
I had a great time staying at Jen's place because of the people. Jane, the housekeeper was very hospitable, friendly and eager to help. She even brought me around to purchase a travel adaptor because I brought the wrong one & Jen gave me some buko jam to bring home. If you have any place you want to go, ask Jane and she will tell you how the locals get around (w/o burning a hole in the pocket)
It is in a good location if you want to get a taste of local life. Postcards is located in a bustling area with streets of night markets on the neighbouring streets (& police on duty during friday and weekends) You can say it is a safe haven, and a relief from the not-so-nice parts of manila. They have a quaint living room with kitchen on the first floor.
My grumble is the cleanliness & noise of the traffic from the room. I was also given the smallest room because I was alone.The bed & bed frame is very dirty (with dust and dirt beneath the bed-evidently not cleaned for a long time). I even captured some photographs of the dirt. The bed sheet is very thin and rides up every time you sleep and you can see the dirt on the mattress. The blanket is the brown, thin kind (not like what it is shown in the photograph) In the mornings and afternoon you can hear the revving of the engines and the traffic. It is as though the window is not there. The noise insulation is terrible.
The saving grace is the private toilet with hot shower. The toilet came with towels, soap and shampoo. It was a small area but nevertheless adequate. I enjoyed many relaxing hot showers there. The wifi connection is good as well. The overall size of the room is adequate and comfortable for one person. The fact there was air-conditioning is also a major plus for me. Thanks for the friendliness & the stay, but I will only return if they replace the mattress and clean up the place properly.
Jennifer's house is in a quite suburb of Manila (Santa Ana), 7 km from Malate (the center of the nightlife). The sorroundings are nice, but to move you need to take every time a taxi (or a jeepney to Ermita, but calculate 40 min of crazy ride through the traffic of Manila, an experience to try at least one time in the life). The taxi to the principal sights will cost about 250 pesos for every ride.
The house is managed by Jane, infact i have never seen Jennifer, who anyway was very helpful to respond promptly to my messages.
Jane is very nice and friendly, but the room floor was dirty and the sheets as well. Tha a/c works well and the private bathroom is a big plus, but our room was very noisy in the morning because of the noise of the traffic coming from the street. The breakfast is not included in the price (1000 pesos per night for the room).
I can finally recommend this house, if you want to live in a not touristic place in Manila. But if you want to stay just a walk from the nightlife, is probably better to stay in Malate.
I had a great stay here, the room was of good size, had its own bathroom. Jennifer was quite friendly and easy going. Would stay here again.

My husband Jed and I (Jen) built this Bed and Breakfast. It is our attempt to showcase the countries we've been to through the postcards we display on the walls of the B&B. We love to be with fellow travellers, welcoming you to our home country (this time!).
