This LGBT-friendly Hostel in La Union Feels a Lot Like Home
They welcome all types of people.
(SPOT.ph) San Juan, a surf town in La Union, is riddled with a lot of hostels perfect for the laid-back surfer and beach-lover. One of the newer ones is Yang House, which opened in August 2016, and has its open-to-all vibe. "We welcome all types of people," says owner Yang Untalan in an interview with SPOT.ph. In fact, one of their murals—made by artist Reese Ricaborda—bears the words: "Love has no labels, no gender, no age, no religion."
You can either book a bed (P800/head) in their air-conditioned dormitory or a private room (P2,500 for three, P2,000 for two). Rates come with light breakfast, bathroom with hot and cold shower, and WiFi in all areas. Yang Hostel doesn't only provide accommodation, they also customize tour packages and organize social events to make their guests feel comfortable.
"San Juan is just a small town, people here are very welcoming. In an instant, we fell in love with how chill the place is and how friendly the people are," shares Untalan about her big move from the city (Makati) to La Union in June 2016. If your eLyU spot is as homey as Yang House, you’d really think twice about coming back to Manila.
Yang House is at Villa Sebastian, Urbiztondo, San Juan, La Union. For inquiries and reservation, visit Yang House's Facebook page.
