These New Study Lounges
Around the Metro
Will Get You Excited
for the School Year
By Tynne De Leon
For the past few years, we see students populating coffee shops just to have a quiet place where they can concentrate on studying. Enter study lounges, these new “student havens” that offer a quieter alternative to the typical coffee shops, complete with sockets, fast wifi, and personal and group desks. Some of them even have shower and napping services for a complete all-nighter experience.
A lot of them just opened just this year, so if you’re still looking for the perfect studying spot, consider these options:
933 Co-Working MNL
Address: 933 G.M. Tolentino St. Sampaloc, Manila
Operating Hours: 11 a.m. to 5 a.m.,
Price: Php 350/day for students, (See full price list here)
Ongoing promo: P100 for 4 hours (until July 31)
933 Co-Working MNL is a space created to cater both students and professionals looking for a space that won’t hurt their wallets. Their rates are student-friendly, and you may want to take advantage of their unlimited coffee and napping services while you’re here. Shower services are also available, just in case you’re in for an all-nighter and you have a class the next day.

Thesis dwellers and bookworms searching for a refreshing nook away from the bustle of the city will find themselves a home in The Lib, Katipunan. It’s hard to resist the place’s homey (and IG-worthy!) interiors, perfect lighting and peaceful vibe: you’d want to hide here with your laptop all day. Did we mention their menu is full of must-tries? Watch out for their rooftop events: they just held a sunset cinema screening!

This newest study nook is just a stone’s throw away from UST, adding another study place option for nocturnal Thomasians. They take their napping services to a new level with actual beds in the napping area. How comfy is that? Not to mention, the place is well-lit so you’ll feel pumped to finish that paper in no time.
Coreon Gate Internet Café (San Andres)
Address: 239 Teodoro San Luis, Pandacan, Manila
Operating Hours: 24/7
Price: Wi-Fi Access starts at 40/Hour
Coreon already has a reputation in both the gaming and student communities because of one thing: their 200 mbps internet (No, we’re not kidding.) In times when you need to download large files for school work, or you’re finally leveling up in your online game, their internet is a total lifesaver. By the way, their menus consist of delicious Korean food, and believe us, it’s hard to choose just one. Visit their newest branch in San Andres.
