MTRC - cheap and safe place to stay in Davao City Oct 10, 2008
This is for budget travelers all around the globe who are looking for a cheap but safe place to stay in Davao City.

MTRC or Mindanao Training Resource Center is a good place to stay either for overnight or for a couple of days. It is simple yet convenient and very near Victoria Mall - walking distance only and one ride to Gaisano Mall and to the rest of the city proper.

It is also a 20-minute ride to the international airport.

Rates are as low as P 180/person/day up to P500/person/day depending on the type of room you want (with aircon or non-air, own toilet or common toilet).

Rest assured that the place is clean and well-guarded. After all, it's inside the premises of Davao Medical School. There is also a nearby ATM machine (RCBC).

Foods are being served in the canteen with reasonable prices (viands are as low as 15 pesos).

For party goers however, drinking is not allowed inside the rooms and guests are encouraged to go back to the center before midnight.

Hope this helps...

haha, good question there - I actually had difficulty categorizng the place.. it ain't a hotel (or maybe it is since it's a member of Small Hotels Association of Davao).. just confused I guess.. anyway, it's also a training center since the place had function halls/conference rooms for meetings and the like...
