- The introductory price for a month's rent is P4,200 for each bed. This already includes the free use of the common kitchenette, living and dining areas, free use of the gym 24/7, as well as electricity and water. The kitchenette has a water dispenser where Spacers can get their drinking water for free. There's also a vendo machine where one can get coffee or chocolate milk for P5.00.
- Spacers are not required to sign yearly contracts. You just pay one month's rent in advance every month (deposit is only worth half a month's rent). According to Angela Manese, General Manager, this rule enables them to refuse renewal of a Spacer's rental if he/she is found to be disruptive to fellow Spacers. They have a "3 strikes you're out" policy and I think that's a good way to enforce discipline and ensure safety for everyone.
- All rooms (for 4, 6, and 8 people) have air-conditioning units and fresh air vents. Air-conditioners are on for 10 hours per day. When they are switched off, the air vents are turned on. There are rooms that get air-conditioning at night and there are also rooms that have air-conditioning during the day (for those who work on night shifts and need to sleep during day time).

- The rooms are very clean and Spacers are expected to keep their spaces neat. Each bed is provided with a pillow, bed sheet, and blanket which one is required to get laundered at most every two weeks to maintain cleanliness. They just have to pay P150 and the staff will take care of changing the sheets.
- Each bed has an assigned cabinet or drawer with lock. Rooms can be accessed via a key card that is issued to every Spacer.
- There are seven cubicles in the comfort rooms (there's one in the female area and another in the male area) and 14 shower stalls per area.
- The common area in the middle of the dorm has numerous electric outlets where Spacers can charge their gadgets for free. Tables and chairs are also available for those who want to eat, work on their laptops, or simply enjoy time with fellow Spacers to develop a sense of community and family.
