EDSA – BGC is what we call the area between the main road called EDSA and the Bonifacio Global Center (BGC). Here’s how it looks in Google Maps:
Pan-Philippine Hwy is EDSA while the BGC area is on the right side (not visible in the photo but going there, you have to walk along Kalayaan Avenue).
As shown in the photo, the hostels are in the middle of EDSA and BGC.
1 BGC Hostel (which is along Danlig Street)
2 Our Awesome Hostel (which is along Kalayaan Avenue)
To get to these hostels, you have to ride a public metro bus. The bus stops in the areas marked by the red sun symbol on the map, so it’s easy to walk to your hostel from there.
Here’s how to ride this public metro bus from Terminal 2:
- Once outside the arrival area of Terminal 2, exit to the left and follow the sidewalk until you see a fork in the road on your left side.
- Just across this fork, you will see a pedestrian lane / bus stop.
- From the bus stop, ride a public metro bus with a signboard that says “Edsa MRT” or “Fairview” (Bus B) and tell the bus conductor to drop you off in “Estrella” (pronounced as Es-trel-ya).
- Take note that Estrella is a name of a street, which is not visible on the map, but its usual drop-off points are those marked by the red sun symbol on the map – landmarks are Caltex and Mercury Drug.
- From the drop-off points, you can walk to your hostel.
