I recently just got back from staying at Dave's and have to say it is by far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed. Looking at other people's reviews where they talk about the rooms being small and the furniture being dated...this is a hostel after all and you are paying very little each night to stay there!...

The staff are all just fantastic. So friendly and helpful with anything you need. We stayed in a standard cottage (for 8 nights) and I don't have one bad thing to say about the place. The facilities are excellent - very comfortable, everything easily accessible, safety deposit box in the room, air conditioning, cable TV, and a mini bar which... More

I have absolutely no idea how this place is rated as a top ten place to stay in Boracay. There is nothing special about this place. The rooms are tiny. As mentioned in previous posts, the furniture is dated and the sheets and towels provided are dingy and gross. The air conditioner is loud and fails to cool the room... More

boracays3, Manager at Dave's Straw Hat Inn, responded to this review

I am wondering if you really stayed here as the things that you point out are absolutely false. I am also sorry to read this and even sorrier that if you were having so many problems, if you actually stayed here, why didn’t you tell us while here. Anything could have been rectified as we always do for our guests,... More

Stayed at Dave's Straw Hat Inn for the first time in March and it was great. The staff are friendly and super attentive. Its very close to the beach (less than 2 minutes) and I always felt very safe on the walk. I really enjoyed staying near Station 3 as it's less busy and close enough still to have a... More

This is such a great hotel in Station 3 on Boracay! It's a (1) minute walk from the beach and was everything my fiance and I could ask for. It was quiet, clean and most importantly the staff was incredibly helpful. They arranged our pick-up from the airport, provided us with sunscreen and even accommodated a very early check-in. Thank...

Its a way back from the beach and doesn't get much breeze. The rooms are poorly ventilated which isn't really an issue if you use the AC - the problem is that this the cool quiet mode was as loud as a boat motor. The front door was a full sliding glass door facing the reception. It was the only... More

Your exact same review was posted twice which I dont think is fair, or maybe an error, but we will reply twice as well. Thanks for the comments. We were actually surprised to read this since the rate for your room was discounted to P1700 per night. We also held the room for you late at night when you emailed... More

My family and I chose Dave's 6 years ago on the recommendations we found here at Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed then and when we decided to return this month to Boracay we had no hesitation in returning to Dave's Straw Hat Inn, and again we were not disappointed. This is a small establishment with a small staff that... More

Stayed for afew days in March.. no complaints at all. Reservation: Sent in a query via email, and response was prompt with all the information I needed to decide whether to book with them. Location: Situated near in Station 3, where the beach is not too crowded but equally beautiful! Arrival: As our plane was diverted (we were due to... More

Yet another enjoyable stay at Dave's. I think it's my seventh or eighth time.. You know in my country of Canada many of my friends that travel south to Mexico, and the Caribbean talk of the grander of the resorts.. Hundreds of rooms, many bars, restaurants, luxury 5-Star accommodations, etc.. This is not the case in Boracay at Dave's Straw... More

If you like to be close to the beach but just far enough away to avoid any noise at night then Dave's Straw Hat Inn would be an excellent choice. It is a compact resort in a tropical garden setting with only about 10 rooms, so the staff to customer ratio is amazing. The owners live on the premises to... More
