We had some reservations about the place initially because of TripAdvisor and Facebook reviews gaving the impression that it was a party hostel. We imagined raucous, all night music and disco, every day of the week. This is why we asked for a deluxe room away from the bar/restaurant. Turns out, it’s only a once a week thing. They announce...

Got to this place mid afternoon, greeted by this awesome receptionist, Jeff, made my stay here enjoyable, very helpful and friendly, oh yeah there's a free welcome drink. Simple dorms, single beds, there's a bar and the best time to drink is obviously the happy hour, they sell food too, but the prices are quite high. The distance from the... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. It's very basic but of course that is to be expected and it's cheap. The food and drink is more expensive than normal, but that's Boracay for you. This really is not a budget island. My room was fine except for the chap with bum wind, but that wasn't the hostal's fault! The bar... More

We found frendz brilliant. It's in a great handy location, only a short walk to the beach, dmall, laundry, supermarket etc. the staff were incredibly friendly and incredibly attentive, from Dennis at the beach who would organise drinks, make sure the beach umbrellas were just right to jeff behind the bar. We stayed in deluxe double bed private ensuite and... More

I stayed here in February 2014 and had an excellent time. I would recommend this to any backpackers and travelers who want a fun and friendly time. We were greeted at reception with a free drink, and the most helpful staff I have ever come across. Every week they host a dinner where you can chill and relax with other... More

Booked for 4 nights at Frendz and ended up spending a week.. Jeff and his staff were super friendly and knew you name after the first day.. Great atmosphere and great location.

Great hostel if you want a rustic feel, top location, beach access, and a common area to meet people. You'll meet world travelers rather than local Filipinos, if your experience is anything like mine. It's a bit pricey for a hostel (approx $15-20), but the reason for that is the location and the beach access.

If you are looking for a good deal, great location, friendly staff, then Frendz Resort may be a good choice. But if you are not a fan of bugs, you might want to re-consider choosing Frendz. We checked-in around mid-night, and immediately we saw a spider in the restroom and on the bed. One of the towel has a lot... More
