Welcome to Makabata Guesthouse and Café, a social enterprise and youth training center run by Bahay Tuluyan, a children's rights organization.
Our 14 room guesthouse has been designed with comfort and affordability at heart. We offer intrepid travellers a unique experience and provide guests with a relaxing stay.
Makabata Guesthouse and Café is a social enterprise where every cent generated goes back into supporting Bahay Tuluyan's programs and services for children. Even more importantly, Makabata Guesthouse and Café serves as a training ground for young people of Bahay Tuluyan where they gain valuable skills as part of our Independent Living Skills program. The skills they gain while working at Makabata Guesthouse and Café help them to make a successful transition into the workforce.
'Makabata' means 'child-friendly' or 'child-focused' and aims to reflect our commitment to working towards a world where every child's rights are respected, protected and fulfilled.
