Oh, Manila! We’re surprised!
Just when everyone thought Laperal Building would cease to exist as we know it, it recently got reborn as YOUniversity Suites, a cool dormitory packed with modern amenities and a quick access to L.A. Village, a four-story establishment of necessities, food and fun.
Quick info: Laperal Building was established since 1946, a low-rise building in Claro M. Recto Avenue in Manila.
We were honored to be part of their media launch to get the first glimpse of this much-awaited hip reboot. Students, welcome to your new home and haven! For as low as P5,000 per month, you can enjoy the good life even as a student. Plus, it’s super secured, too! And one thing that caught our attention, they have an indoor pool as well.
Complete with escalators and elevators, going to one floor to another is a breeze. This spacious food abode boosts lots of selections for anyone. Craving for anything? Name it, they definitely have it. Fun fact: Did you know that the aircraft hanging in the middle is a legit one? Yep, it’s an authentic German aircraft from the World War I. Yay!
The place is very near University of the East and San Sebastian College, and is walking distance from LRT Legarda Station and Mendiola area. Wide-range (over 40+!) of budget-friendly food and beverage kiosks and restaurants awaits all their patrons.
Below are their food stalls selections:
Look at all these foods! If we’re still students, we can live here forever! Haha! Imagine living comfortably and having these right beside you, how cool is that? Other food options are The Barrows, Bonchon Chicken, Dulce Donna, Eggsquisite Express, Golden Lotus, Metro Vanilla, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Noodle House, Sumo Takoyaki, Sup Vietnamese Kitchen and Tender Juicy Hotdogs.
Below are their drinks selections:
They also have this convenience store in the first floor for your basic needs, and for further personal necessities, they have Watsons right outside the building.
Yes, a billiard place (and darts) for the whole barkada! Other non-food places are Sterling Gym, Study Haven, Fresh Rinse Laundry and SM Appliance.
It’s our lucky day, indeed! We got the chance to see Up Dharma Down perform right in front of us! Yay! L.A. Village has this stage provision in the middle of the complex for events and special performances like this. Stay tuned on their social media accounts for any updates. And come by for a change of environment in U-belt!
