Besides its amazing attractions, Cagayan de Oro City is frequently flocked by tourists as it is the gateway to a lot of other must-see places in the nearby provinces of Bukidnon, Camiguin, and Lanao del Norte. As such, many stay overnight in the City of Golden Friendship, as CDO is fondly called, either to prepare for their itineraries the next day or to catch their flights home the next morning. These people often look for cheap accommodations especially that they intend to stay for only several hours in CDO. In most cases, they end up staying in cheap motels around the city that are actually just fine but are not that reputable. Good thing there's Travelers Pod, a relatively new accommodation that caters primarily to backpackers and overnight travelers. This so-called traveler's lounge offers a luxurious experience without breaking the bank.
Conveniently situated at the Gateway Tower inside the Limketkai Complex, all the major spots in CDO are just a jeepney or taxi ride away, some even reachable within a few minutes by foot. The location is guaranteed safe.
The main feature of Travelers Pod is its Single Pod for budget travelers. Single pods are actually single beds arranged in rows and separated by curtains. The curtains serve as walls that provide privacy to individual guests. Worried about your stuff? They have a baggage counter where you can securely check-in your things so that you can sleep soundly and stop worrying about your belongings getting lost. Single pod occupants share common bathrooms with other guests. The bathrooms are clean and well-maintained. And before I forget, WiFi access is also free of charge. The rate for a single pod?

If you prefer more privacy, you can get yourself an elegant Standard Pod, Deluxe Pod, or a luxurious Premier Pod. These rooms offer comfortable beds, air conditioning, LCD TV with cable, WiFi access, and private bathrooms (except for the Standard Pod). The rooms are so stylish you would wonder if you've paid the correct amount. Rates for these rooms start at 1,000 pesos based on single/double occupancy.

Travelers Pod always gets fully booked because of the luxury and affordability it provides and also because this traveler's haven has a very small area and limited number of rooms and beds.

The place also has a spa and a 24-hour coffee shop so you can experience total relaxation in your short stay. If you prefer dining out, fast food restos are just a stone's throw away. You can also check out the famous Rosario Arcade located on the other block for some dinner, dessert or cocktails.
I highly recommend the place to those who are traveling on a budget but do not want to sacrifice their sleeping comfort. For more information, you may contact Travelers Pod through the following:
