Accommodation in Quezon City, Metro Manila

The conference venue inside the Ateneo campus is situated in a surprisingly green, but urban area of Quezon City in the National Capital Region about 12 km from downtown Manila and Makati. Due to the heavy traffic it is recommended to stay in a hotel at Katipunan Ave. next to the Ateneo campus or the Cubao business area. Restaurants, food stalls and bars in the Katipunan area are mostly frequented by students, while Cubao is dominated by shopping malls with international restaurant chains.

Below we list some recommendations for accommodation in these areas. Rates provided are from August 7 to 13 (6 nights). Discounts are available for group bookings (off-campus accommodation only).

On campus accommodation

Some affordable and well-secured accommodations are available directly on the campus. Bookings can be made only through the local organizing committee of the conference – please send your request by email to
