The famous Enrico Dee of http://www.byahilo.com/ created a group on Facebook adding all the travel bloggers planning to attend this year's Masskara and that's where I posted my concern. Two bloggers contacted me and offered that I could stay in their room.The bloggers I am referring to are Ramil and Ed of http://www.pinasmuna.com/.They were my life saver.
CHECK INN Pension House is the place.
I have a few complaints though.The towels are old and smelly.At some point,It even felt like using a rag.Damn,I should make it a habit to bring my own towel.Next time.
Other than that,the location is perfect for Masskara as it is situated a few blocks from the Old City Hall and the street in front of the Old City Hall is the same avenue where the Masskara Street Dance Competition passes.A little warning though,the area is an old district so it feels like being in Quiapo or Recto at times.It could really get dirty and smelly during the festival.
In my case,I was a bit apprehensive at first (first few hours lang naman) but when the Masskara Spirit sank in,it really didn't matter at all.You get engulfed by the Masskara mood that everything else is fun.Also thanks to my cool roommates,I enjoyed my stay at Check Inn Pension House and the whole Masskara2012 experience was indeed memorable!
