There’s no official homestay program in the Philippines, but in rural areas where there may be no formal accommodation, you’ll often find people willing to put you up in their home for a small charge, usually no more than P200 a night, including some food.

If you enjoy the stay, it’s best to offer some sort of tip when you leave, or a gift of soft drinks and sweets for the children. You can ask around at town halls if you’re interested.

On-campus and off-campus accommodation are prized according to the number of students who are likely to occupy a room at any given time. Prizes range between US$175.355 (P 7.455 and P 15.123) per month for foreign students.
