Welcome to Flyertalk. Your post tells us your conclusion, but not the reasons. Did you find the lounge to be crowded or dirty or poorly maintained or lacking amenities?

Haven't been there since 2015 but it didn't seem too bad to me. If you think this lounge is bad you've obviously never been to the Eli Beinhorn lounge at STR or whatever the PP lounge at TXL is called.

Dirty

Dirty cups, dirty spoons, garbage on the floor, food spilled everywhere...

Haven't been there, but is it worse than whatever lounge that UL sends OWEs to at CMB?

Price

My flight was 40 minutes, so the main reason I paid 50 USD extra for business class was to use the lounge 2 hours. I should have better take economy and use 20 USD for a nice restaurant in the airport. I would have save money and have a better experience waiting for my flight.

For future decisions, https://www.loungebuddy.com/ is your friend. Though unless I'm not looking at the same lounge you're describing, the reviews are pretty good...

My vote is for the Thai Airways Lounge in MNL T1.

Dim and very cramped, with only a few rows of tightly spaced seats and then some uncomfortable stools along one side. If you are sitting across from anybody, there's no room in the aisle for someone to walk past. No bathroom in the lounge and limited drink and food selections.
