Stayed in the basic room with fan and cold water. I thought it was overpriced for what you got, which was a small room with very old bedding, mildew smell and tiny bathroom with cold water and a broken toilet seat. The location is good and the staff are nice but for the money I think you can find nicer...

This place is tucked away in between the busy street and beach where there are lovely trees, plants and birds singing. It is a nice getaway from the activity of Boracay and yet it is a short walk to it. Also the hosts are very helpful and friendly and the common area outside it is nice place to meet other...

Stayed here several times and it never failed to impress me. If you are looking for a budget friendly accommodation yet comfortable and hospitable staff I recommend this place. About 2-3 minutes walk to front beach very close to shops and restaurants. Homey atmosphere. Why spend more to a fancy accommodation if you use your extra money to explore and...

This hostel is run by really lovely people Joel & Julia It is situated in station 3 and is a short walk from the beach. The hostel is a oasis of greenery in the middle of a shopping mall that has been built around it which is such a shame. The little cottages you stay in are comfortable and clean...

We stayed here the first time we went to Boracay Island. It is situated at Station 3. A lot of walking if you want to go to the main part of the busy island. But if you want the quiet part of the island, this is the best location. The owner is very accommodating. He gave us tips and information...

I stayed here for five nights with my boyfriend. The hostel is hidden behind a shopping center and about 10 minutes from the beach. This location was the only downside, I would have loved to be right on the beachfront. However everything else was perfect. We had a room on the second floor. We opted for the fan the first...

I was on a tight budget when I first visited Boracay and I was not able to make any reservations at all. This place was recommended by the trike driver when I asked for a cheap place to stay. The room is neat and you can use kitchen utensils if you plan to cook your meal. The caretaker was nice...
