We love an urbanized life — the lights, the buildings and the noise. But sometimes, living in cities take a toll on us. With time, malls tend to be too crowded, coffee shops become too noisy and most definitely, you cannot meditate inside a restaurant.
With the hustle and bustle of city life — be you a student, yuppie or just cruising around town — it’s not easy finding a comfortable place of privacy in the city. Not everyone can afford to pop at home for a powernap and go back to one’s normal routine. Sometimes, you just need that space to recharge – with the comfort and convenience of home even when you are not at home.
Seekhana Study Hub is Davao’s answer to a ‘third space’ alternative. It’s a space within a space. Quiet, relaxing and very much conducive, Seekhana Study Hub aims to help the mind, body and soul reconnect without altering the shape of your wallet. Very much like a short term hotel minus the stained comforter.
It’s a study hub. A study space to be more precise. It’s not a coffee shop – as it is not – and most definitely, not a library. Seekhana Study Hub offers spaces designed to help you have your “me time” in between your hectic schedule. The space is well lit, painted with colours to help you focus. Spacious and can accommodate up to 40 people all at once. Well-spaced, study desks and tables allows for arm and leg stretching without bugging your study-desk-neighbour. And of course, ample number of electric sockets for your gadgets.
They also serve Rice Combo Meals inclusive of 1 viand, 1 cup rice and 1 glass iced tea/lemonade. Choose from their Humba, Chicken Adobo, Chicken Liver with Egg or Pork Giniling. If sweets is your cup of tea while reading through your notes or reports, then their assortment of sweet faves from Real Confections is what you need.
Aside from the abovementioned, what sets Seekhana Study Hub as the ultimate study place to be is that their rates are so affordable you won’t believe it. I didn’t. They charge at an hourly, daily, weekly and monthly basis. Day pass is at 8 hours maximum.
Choose whether you’re a Morning Reader (8am-4pm), Peak Thinker (4pm-12am) or a Night Learner (12am-8am). Can’t decide? Then save up with their UNLIMITED (24/7) Rates: Weekly 1,600 (9.50 /hr)
Monthly 4,500 (6.25/hr).
Seekhana Study Hub also has an array of school and office supplies for your convenience. Also catering to your printing, scanning and photocopying needs.
Now, renting a space is possible. It’s open 24 hours a day, FREE Wi-Fi access and you have the choice to go on an alone quiet splurge or make it a group affair. Lockers are provided so no need to worry about security. And your complimentary coffee awaits every time you visit.
