The best study lounges in Manila that we truly miss

The best study lounges in Manila that we truly miss

Who here was a fan of studying out during pre-pandemic?

The current work-from-home situation may be convenient for some people, but it is a major headache for many others.

As a student with no stable workspace or conducive home to work, study lounges are nothing new to me.

I’ve gone on many hunts for study hubs back then just to power through my acad works and deadlines.

These days, it’s impossible not to miss these study spots that saved us from studying out in the open, trapped by the noise of the busy streets.

If you miss your favorite study spots as much as I do, let’s go back to some of the best we have in Manila and maybe get some ideas for where to go next time when things get better and back to normal.

933 Co-working MNL

933 G.M. Tolentino st. Sampaloc Manila.

Open 16 hours a day and 7 days a week, 933 Co-Working MNL is probably one of the best co-working spaces in the city for only P100 for 4 hours.

It’s not only designed for working and studying, but it also has napping areas for when things get a little too tiring and exhausting.

You also don’t have to worry about getting your caffeine fix cause they have you covered with their unlimited free iced teas and coffee!


4th floor of L.A. Village, 2119 Claro M. Recto Avenue, Manila.

If you’ve been often strolling around Recto, Manila before, like me, you’re probably familiar with YOUniversity Suites. If you are, you’ll find StudyHaven right next to it.

For P150 for 4 hours and P300 for the entire day, you can walk in and out of StudyHaven when you need a dynamic work atmosphere, or you can access their Quiet Zone when you simply need some quiet time.

Drinks and snacks are also made freely available, so worry no more.

HomeRoom Co-Working and Study Lounge

Dioresa Plaza, 1521 Dapitan Street, Sampaloc, Manila.

Tell me I’m not the only one who notices their spacious desks!

This is a beautiful sight for someone like me who loves to whip out all of my stuff on my desk or usually brings a lot of study materials.


And if you’re looking for something a little cozier, look no further!

Everything for only P188 for five hours and P488 for a full day pass.

If you’re looking for a place to get your creative juices flowing, Creative Studios by Delab might be the place for you.


From its workstations to washrooms, this sleek and modern space will undoubtedly inspire you to keep your creativity coming.

For only P250 per day, Creative Studios has plenty of surprises to offer.

Warehouse Eight

Warehouse 8-A, 2241 Chino Roces Ave., Manila, Philippines

Of course, we wouldn’t forget about those who prefer to work and study in groups!

Although you can still work here alone, the spacious space is perfect for small intimate gatherings to bigger events.


Warehouse Eight regards the place as a “chameleon of spaces” as it can adjust to whatever you need.

These places get me pumped up about studying. Can’t wait to visit all of these for work or just to relax!
