I was GRANDPAcking in Boracay for 5 weeks and had a good look around at the available accommodation in Station 3.
The Trafalgar is hard to find; you have to walk inside a souvenir shop complex to find the entrance.
Once found, the grounds are pleasant and quiet.
I got a Fan Double with Shared Cold Water Bathroom (no breakfast) at PHP700 / night (single occupancy).
The Trafalgar is a hostel; it does not pretend to be anything else. But, it is very clean and tidy. And, well run.
The Trafalgar was listed as the No1 Hostel in The Philippines by HOSTELWORLD in 2013.
The room is exactly what I expected: simple.
The room is small but has a wardrobe to hang your clothes.
There is mosquito mesh on the windows which allows you to leave your shutters open to let in the sea breeze.
The shared bathroom is functional and clean.
There is a second, separate toilet.
These facilities are shared by just 4 double rooms.
Whilst I was there, Joel (the main man at reception) had his 60th birthday… which turned into a bit of a party. Thanks Joel!More
