Davao Accommodations: Green Windows Dormitel

During our trip to Davao City last month, my friends and I felt so lucky to chance upon Green Windows Dormitel located at the 5th floor of FTC tower. For only Php 188 per night you could sleep at a wonderful dormitory. The dormitory room is good for 12 people and is suitable for backpackers and budget travelers. It’s actually my second time to stay at a dormitory because I also stayed at a dormitory room during my trip to Singapore last year. And that time, I paid Php 600 per night for a basic dormitory room. So when I found out about Green Windows Dormitel, I was really thrilled. Just imagine paying only Php 188 per night in such a gorgeous dormitory. The price is really cheap and the facilities of the dormitel are a big bonus.

I just loved the place because it looks gorgeous even though it’s only a dormitory. It’s located at the 5th floor of FTC tower in Davao City but don’t worry because they do have a big elevator. Since the place is a little bit high, you could see a beautiful view of the city from the dormitel. And with the presence of security guards and security cameras all around the vicinity, you will feel very secured in the dormitel. We stayed there for 2 nights. There are 12 beds in one dormitory room but we got lucky because not so many people checked in when we stayed there, so we were the only ones who occupied the whole room. There are also lockers inside the room for you to put your things in but if you want to make sure you can bring your own padlock. Each dormitory room has one toilet room and one shower room inside. It’s complete with hot and cold shower. The room also has a very good air condition so your sleep would be really cozy.

One more thing I loved about the dormitel is it’s very clean and the facilities are still new. I heard that Green Windows Dormitel opened only last year December that’s why everything still looks new. They also have a cafeteria that sells my favorite Krispy Kreme doughnuts biggrin.  Moreover, they have a common living room where you can watch tv.

So if you’re a backpacker, budget traveler or you’re simply heading to Davao City with your whole barkada, I suggest you try Green Windows Dormitel. I’m sure you’d feel it is worth every single cent of your money. And for those who don’t prefer staying in a dormitory room, Green Windows Dormitel also offers private rooms. The following are their current room rates according to their facebook page:

PHP 188 Night/Bed/Pax (Dormitory room/ Bed spacer)

    Wow. This is good. I will be heading to Davao this week and I guess I will take a look at this dormitel. Hope that it is not jampacked.

    • Hello Ishmael! Wow you’re going to Davao :-) That’s good to hear! Yeah, I hope it won’t be jampacked. When we left the dormitel, I saw many young travelers who had just checked in. Maybe because it’s already summer. But I highly recommend this dormitel because it’s really cheap and the facilities are good. I’m looking forward to read your posts about Davao soon. Enjoy your trip! :-)

    @Ishmael: You’re welcome! Looking forward to that :-) I really miss Davao!

  3. Maniniyot says:

    Wow. I never thought that we have something like this in Davao. A very cool ambiance. Very cheap for a group of travellers! :D

    • Hi! Yeah, I really loved the cool ambiance of the dormitel. I’m glad you have these cheap dormitels in Davao which are perfect for budget travelers. And I really loved Davao especially the cheap eat-all-you-can buffets! I’m definitely coming back there someday. I hope to try scuba diving next time! :-)

      • Arthron says:

        thanks for this post.! XD I really wondering about this FTC tower, i never did imagine it has such a cool place.! ill visit it in one of this days.. and one thing caught my attention was the DOUGHNUTS! lol..

        pS. going scuba? try Maxima beach @ samal Island.. ^.^ have fun!!

        • Hi Arthron! Thanks for the suggestion :-) I’ll try to check out Maxima beach the next time I visit Davao. I’m really looking forward to visit your beautiful hometown once again in the future. Feeling ko bitin pa yung 3 days stay namin eh. hehe. Yeah, try mo i-visit yung Green Windows one of these days. Okay din yung cafe nila dun at masarap talaga yung Krispy Kreme doughnuts! hehe. Enjoy and thank you for the comment! :-)

  4. Lord says:

    Wow, thanks for posting this! We’re on backpack next weekend there.

  5. pilibustero says:

    Thanks again! Unfortunately, fully booked na daw sila next weekend. Sayang! Pero it’s good to learn DevCom pala kayo. We’re also DevCom grads, sa Elbi. -:)

    • Wow Devcom ka din pala :-) I’m pretty sure we were schoolmates because I’m also from elbi. What a coincidence! I’m really glad to stumble upon a fellow colleague online. Sayang fully booked na pala ang Green Windows. Maybe because it’s summer kaya madaming pumupunta sa Davao. Good luck sa trip nyo and enjoy Davao! :-)

  6. agnes says:

    Thanks for sharing this info …we are going to Davao on August…and it’s nice to know that there is a place like this….

    • You’re welcome Agnes! Tuwang tuwa din kami nung friend ko nung nalaman namin tong place na to. Kasi mura at maganda yung place. We didn’t expect that we can get a good room for only as low as P188. Yun nga lang dormitory yung room. But I think it won’t be a problem kung madami naman kayo kasi kayo na din ang magkakasama dun sa room. Enjoy your trip to Davao! Promis maganda talaga dun! :-)

  7. Girlie R. Sarmiento says:

    Hi. Thanks for this info. I will be in Davao next week and will check if the venue is near Greenwindows. Taga elbi rin ako but Food Tech. Girlie

    • Wow! It’s really great to meet fellow schoolmates on my site. I also know several peeps from Food Tech. Nakakatuwa naman sa Davao pa yung workshop nyo. I hope you had a good time in Davao. I really like the city because I found it organized and less polluted than Manila. It was really nice meeting you here Girlie! Thanks for stopping by :-)

    Galing nito ah! I’m from Davao but it’s been awhile since I last visited the place. Bumalik ako ngung January lang and I paid for a dormitory style din at 180/night with 8 people in the room, aircon. It was good already pero the problem was that walang WiFi! Kelangan ko kasi ng WiFi for my online freelance jobs. I had to transfer at MyHotel (single fan room was 250/night). I would’ve immediately transferred here sana had I known that there’s this type of hotel available. Really nice place, there’s even a lounge area which is really a plus! :D

    • Hi Ed! From Davao ka pala. I really loved your hometown when I went there last March. Sana makabalik ulit ako kasi bitin yung trip namin 3 days lang. Anyway, I agree na malaking bonus talaga yung mga amenities ng dormitel like wifi and lounge area. Tapos nag-open lang sila December last year kaya bago pa yung mga facilities. Pero mura na din yung room mo sa MyHotel kasi solo room na sya. Nakakatuwa naman na madami palang murang accommodations sa Davao.

      In fairness, ang busy mo naman kasi nagwo-work ka pa din while traveling hehe. Pero alam kong kelangan nating magsipag lalo na sa mga kagaya nating mahilig mag-travel hehe. Thanks for visiting and keep on traveling! :-)

    • Bernie says:

  19. GRABE your information staff is NOT approachable…. I Just called up Green Windows Dormitel, this lady named SAM, grrrrrrrrrrr I am just asking nor clarifying if DURIAN is allowed on this hotel, I ask twice just to clarify & to know if there is some area where guest can eat Durian, then I heard this lady (SAM) murmuring say’s “dili kasabot”… How dare you to do that to you costumer???

    • Aly says:

      To the customer, have you tried translating using google “dili kasabot”? It says she did not understood you. You can’t be angry with that :/

  20. joan says:

I just want to ask if this area is near on the the Davao tourist spot like the crocodile park and others? Near also in the city and malls? Please give me an idea? We are about 7 persons and 3 kids are they going to pay kids ages from 7 to 2?

    Please give me an info?

    • jess says:

      location-wise, it is very good.. it is within the downtown area and establishments like church/mall/hospital are all accessible..

  22. JP says:

    Gonna try this Dormitel tomorrow. Thanks for the review. Very helpful.

  23. papsi says:

    omg! this place is really nice BUT THE FRONTDESK SERVICE is a BIG QUESTION! .. they are just so DIS ORGANIZED !!!

    PRE-BOOKED 5 rooms (std king, deluxe twin & executive twins) on march 2012 for today, april 27 2012.. PAID IN FULL the rooms yesterday, april 26

    upon arrival of the guests (an hour ago), the std king room is not available (?), they gave it to somebody who checked in earlier (!)

    so they gave a triple sharing room instead of the std king room BUT our guest have to WAIT for AN HOUR bec the room wasnt cleaned yet (!) .. tsk 3x, one guest is to stay in that room alone w/ 3 beds :(

    to note; we have “CONFIRMED” our reservation 4 times !
    yesterday, when we are to pay in full (we already had 2 down payments), they gave us an outstanding balance of MORE THAN 10,000 than our actual balance :( well, they called after 2 hrs confirming from us if their 7,500 collection was from us .. it was our 2nd down payment.. huh!

    i was very positive on this hotel/dormitel having read positive reviews & nice rooms on the website & on their show rooms, but now? I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DORMITEL AT ALL .. im sorry guys. we will be reporting this to your management, for them to know that the frontdesk lacks proper organization & competence.. well, it’s for your business’ own good, too.

  24. Charm says:

    Hey! Thanks for this info. This blog is very informative and very helpful. Me and my friends will visit Davao on Sept. 2012. We’re all excited to stay in this new dormitel. ;)

    Keep blogging!

  25. MARY ANN D. PEREMNE says:

    Me and my two kids went there for an overnight stay because I have my class in my masteral. My kids are enjoying and they want to stay more but we have nothing to do because they have classes on the following day. So, if we go back in Davao again we will see to it that we will stay at Green Windows Dormitel. Thanks for the nice accomodation.
