My partner booked a couple of nights here in March. I wish he hadn't. It was so gross. The bathrooms... i can't even. How anyone would stay here after seeing the diarrhea is beyond me. i've never seen anything like it. it was also loud... Caca en el bano... AY DIOS MIO! There was lots of other people being loud,...

This place is cuter during the day than it is at night. Unfortunately we arrived around 11 pm. We were shown to our room, which was not a cottage, but in the main building. Our room was $17 a night, but because we booked online it was hard to tell what the room would look like. The journey to Boracay... More

I am stunned by all of the positive reviews for this dump. I'll start with the positives: - Quaint appearance - Genuinely interesting history behind the owners - Allowed us to cancel after one night after a hideous experience So what was so wrong with Trafalgar that we left after one night? I'm not sure I have enough room to... More

This is definitely a budget place. Which is what j prefer Bc I'm a young back packer. Good location. A little over priced though Bc the room was ok but the bathroom in the room was absolutely disgusting. It was still a cute little place - small cottages and we'll shaded. I would literally but stay here again though Bc... More

We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to find private room budget accommodation in Boracay. It is by station 3, but has a bunch of stuff closeby so you won't feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. It was basic, the staff were polite, and it was very cheap for Boracay. I am convinced this is one... More

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.
