Oftentimes, being a student can drain your energy. You feel like acads is often the source of your stress and the requirements for orgs and projects seem endless. Sometimes, you just need a place to hang out and chill at during breaks to drink cold coffee, eat snacks and desserts, watch your favorite movies, or even fall asleep without worrying. Fear not, these places do exist on Taft—inside and outside of De La Salle University. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy these spots with our "chillist" (get it?) of chill places. 

  1. Coreon Gate Internet Café

Unlike any other internet cafes, Coreon Gate is a coffee shop with a fast internet connection—and by fast, we mean lightning speed. They provide 200 MBPS internet speed that lets you download anything under the sun in just a few minutes. We're talking about uninterrupted streaming of your favorite TV shows or K-Dramas. It's also popular among students for their budget-friendly coffee that starts at P99. This café is made for studying or random hohols

Location: Ground floor, One Archer's Place, Taft Ave. Malate, Manila

  1. Henry Sy, Sr. Building 

DLSU's Henry Sy, Sr. Building provides students a place to hang out and chill after a long day inside the campus. The bean bag area located on the 5th floor is a place to get cozy among the other sleeping students free of any judgement. Students can also enjoy board games or use the computers on the 6th floor up to the 10th floor for academic purposes (or Facebook). If you want some quiet time for yourself, DLSU's library is only a few steps away.

Location: De LaSalle University, Henry Sy, Sr. Building 5th floor

  1. Café Travel

Café Travel is a breath of fresh air for people who are bored of the conventional cafés designed with posh furniture and filled with a sophisticated aura. Café Travel offers a brighter and perkier atmosphere with its Korean-style setting. Table areas are designed for comfort with throw pillows used for dreaming the day away. This café is perfect for getting your caffeine fix and your sweet tooth satisfied. Coffee and desserts are made for sharing and starts at only P120.

  1. Bloemen Hall

It's another chill spot inside De LaSalle University filled with food stalls but by fellow Lasallians. It serves as the student entrepreneurship area called Animo BIZ which stands for Animo Business Innovation Zone.

  1. Exile on Main St.

Exile serves a unique taste of Western food with a Filipino recipe twist. You can hang out with your barkada while enjoying their best-selling ice cream or have a study group sesh. It also features interesting artworks usually from students. Their bookshelves are filled with university art and literary portfolios. When you look up, you'll see a table set glued on the ceiling. Weird? Nope, it's art.
