This is inside a little market at e mall so feels safe. Ask the tuktuk driver to point you in the right direction. It has a great rustic feel to it. The rooms are basic clean rooms with cold showers... Thats ok because its hot!! Most rooms have a little balcony with a hammock. The common are is where you... More

We spent quite a lot of time here and enjoyed it a lot. The people who run this place are so nice. The wifi works best in the common area which I'm glad was the case because we met a lot of good people there. Some nights turned into drinking games and kicked on from there. The location is great...

Probably the best budget place on island. The owners created a homestay atmosphere, so you feel as a part of their big family. Even though we arrived at night before the day of our check in, we were given a shelter in a rainy windy weather, so we even had a chance to rest and sleep a bit in their... More

Trafalgar is probably the best option for backpackers who want to party every night, clean and a table outside to drink coffee with other guests. On the downside, it is noisy. One of us got sick so had to sleep, therefore we left and went to a place in Angol. Honestly I would skip Boracay, it is very touristic and... More

Very clean hostel, great value and super price and basic rooms. They offer free hot water all day, free wifi and a kitchen where you could cook. They ask you to clean the dishes after use - reasonable - but please provide a clean sponge to do so. A small down for great place. Another minus: if you have a... More

Great place, great vibe, great staff and great location. For sure, you won't find a better deal on Boracay island. Clean, quiet and close to the beach and the cheap restaurant and shops. I totally recommend it!

I stayed 8 nights at Trafalgar (1-9 november 2014) and really enjoyed my stay there. I had my own room with a big bed, and very clean shared bathroom. It is very well located, you can walk to White beach (around 5 min) and also to Bulabog beach if you are willing to do some wind sports. I had a... More

Staff very helpful and friendly. Location good and price much more reasonable than a lot of other places on Boracay (however all of Boracay more expensive than some other Asian locations such as Vietnam and Cambodia). I agree with the pillows being pretty old and bumpy (we didn't make an issue to be honest though). I did however make an... More

Stayed here last week and couldn't have chosen a better hotel for my time in Boracay. Julia (owner) was so accommodating and helpful. Even before I arrived, she emailed me travel information and whilst there, gave me loads of tips and advice. She even wrote a list of places for me to go in the Philippines. I mean that is... More
