I checked in on arrival, Cash only so make sure you have enough cash but a lot of ATM's in the area.My back pack was taken to my room. My room was quite small for two people but I was able to have the room to my self for the month at no extra cost. Very nice chill out balcony... More

When we arrived to the hostel we was greater by a nice lady who welcomed us in, took our payment and showed us to our 'cottage'. Once inside the cottage it wasn't great. Only stay if you can deal with very very basic needs. The bed was just bigger than a single, no warm water, ants everywhere and you cannot... More

It was a very pleasant stay, exceeded my expectations for the rate it costed during peak CNY season. Must say this is the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in and the stuff is helpful and nice. Perfectly located. All in all, I must agree with those who say "Home of budget travellers in the Phillipines".

The first time I called them I didn't hear anyone speaking on the other line so I cancelled the call and redialed the number.. An old woman answered and I said to her, I am sorry I didn't hear what you said because the signal was bad, I would just like to ask for a vacant room. Then she said,... More

Good vibe, simple but clean rooms. Our room had a porch with a hammock and access to a common kitchen. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They let us leave our bags there (after check out time) while we were out on a day trip.

Had a great time here. It's simple and affordable, but is extremely well-kept and Bernie and her husband do an excellent job of running the place. They are wiling to help with anything and everything that they can in order to make your time in Boracay amazing. I ended up getting a nasty stomach bug. Bernie heard I was sick... More

I stayed at Trafalgar for 5 days, and Joel and Pearly were amazing hosts. Every morning I was greeted with a friendly smile. The room was great. It's no frills, but it was comfortable and clean. The location is great as it is less than 5 minutes walk to the white beach, but because it is off the main strip... More

It's getting harder and harder finding quality accomodation offering good value in Boracay, but Trafalgar Cottages offer simple and affordable rooms in the Station 3 area. Joel, Julia, and the rest of the staff are super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They make their guests feel welcome and important and are always there for them. The location is right behind a... More

Nice value for money if all you need is a place to sleep and you are not picky about comforts. It is very straightforward, no frills. The room is relatively clean but the service deteriorated over the years.I first stayed here in 2007, being first timers we were welcomed by the owner and were given plenty of instructions to find...

Nice place, great environment. Definitely get your money's worth. However they double booked us and the owner ( the man) was very rude about it and tried to blame us ( bad attitude). The lady that works there is lovely and took us to the doctors when we were sick. Overall, great stay x
