Stayed here 05.03.14 - 12-05-14. Staff are very friendly and always willing to help. The older fillipino lady helped us get great deals on trips through her friends so they were cheaper. Room is what you need - double bed, fan and wardrobe. We had a shared bathroom. Do take a mosquito net if you can as they are good... More

We stayed here for 14 nights in January. The cottages are midway between the main road and the beach, tucked away behind some market stalls. Our room and bathroom were basic, but clean. The shower was cold water only, but we knew that in advance. It still begs the question why not fit solar water heating like most everywhere else.... More

We spent about a week in this Boracay hostel. The staff was very good about providing directions and were very friendly over email and in person. Our room was on the second floor, and had a double bed, a fan, a chair, a desk and a sort of open closet. The hotel is probably on one of the quietest places... More

Our stay in Trafalgar was great! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was close enough to the beach and shops but we also had peace and quiet. The rooms were perfect for budget travellers. I would definitely go and stay there again!

Great hostel. Owner was very friendly and so was his family. We had a double en suite room which was clean and all the electronics worked. The wifi was pretty good but you have to sit in the communal area to get it because it won't reach to the rooms. The room is basic but you gets what you pay... More

After traveling a bit through the Philippines, arriving in Boracay was a cultural shock, as there are so many tourists and there is so much going on. The Trafalgar Cottages were the perfect place to stay. You were close to all the other places, but you had some peace in the cottages. The personal was really nice and helpful. The... More
