About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Tacloban Accommodations: Welcome Home Pensionne

    An officemate of Tutubi asked him for his recommendations on "where to stay in Tacloban" where he mentioned two places: Luxury Suites and Welcome Home Pensionne, two places he stayed at in Tacloban but upon checking this blog, he found out he's yet to provide an entry on Welcome Home here's a quick post on the Tacloban pension house.

    Pension houses are small hotels favored by budget travelers like Tutubi. In this case, he only opted to stay here just to try something different rather than stay again at the Luxury Suites. This pension house fits his budget so much that he can afford to rent the largest room available but why bother? He only checked it, dropped his bag, returned late at night and left the next day. He doesn't need the frills of luxury hotels like the overrated Leyte Park Hotel (please avoid the place like a plague).

    Tutubi's backpack on the bed with the refrigerator and TV visible.

    the color theme may not appeal to you but Tutubi doesn't mind. He merely wanted to rest well for the night then check out the following day

    Brief review of Welcome Home Pension House:

    Cheap hotel with clean rooms though a bit old yet homey. Tutubi's room is actually too big for him though. TV turned on only for company late at night after dinner at Calle Z (for pakdol, Leyte's version of bulalo) and a few bottles of beer for a taste of Tacloban night life. Location is at the city center just across the Duptours van terminal). No meals available for your room though so you have to eat some place else.

    Room rates: starts at P250.00/person for shared rooms up to P1200.00 for family room with 2 queen size beds. Extra beds at P150.00

    Welcome Home Pensione
    Address: 161 Sto. Nino St.
    Tacloban City 6500
