THE Communal recently finished building PHASE 2 of their co-living space project, and it’s the best time to get a room here now. What is The Communal, you ask?

If you live far up the north or far down the south, but you work around the metro, The Communal can be your safe haven. It’s just one ride away from the MRT, Ortigas, Makati, and BGC.

If you’re a couple, you can share a capsule for just P5,000 per month.

Each unit is inclusive of the following:

  • Mattress
  • Bed sheet
  • Closet
  • Table
  • Cooling fan

Utilities are only charged through the electric sub-meter at P25 per kilowatt hour. And did we tell you about the coin-operated washing machines?

All you need to have are two valid IDs, one of which should be government issued, an up-to-date NBI clearance, and a month’s worth of deposit and one-month advance. If you have all that, you’re pretty much ready to go and live in The Communal.
