“Very nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

The rooms are big and comfortable, however they could be lit better and when we entered there was a moldy smell. The verandas are very nice and add quite a lot to the general experience. The staff were very helpful and hospitable. The location is good, not really on the beach but just a few minutes walk. The wifi signal is not so good in the rooms.

Usually, you get what you pay for. In this case, however, my friends and I got much more than what we expected from this budget hotel.

We paid Php 700 a night since our bungalow cost 1,800 plus 300 for an extra bed, and this was good for 3 people.

The staff were hospitable and we felt welcome during our stay. The amenities were reasonable - though small, the bathroom had a heater and clean water. There was also wifi available at the common area. Aircon was pretty weak but if you leave it open long enough, it will cool the entire room. Breakfast was tasty as well, though it didnt come complimentary with our room booking and we had to pay around 200 per meal.

The resort seems to be popular with foreigner backpackers, who were also friendly.

Though not directly by the beachfront, it was only a 2 minute walk down a small alley. It's location right at the border of station 1 and 2 meant that all fun places in Boracay were accessible. I would definitely choose this location over a more posh hotel further down in station 2 or 3.

Despite the cheap-sounding name, Frendz is actually one of the hidden gems of Boracay, and is the perfect place to stay if you'll be out and about the entire day and need only a decent but not grandiose place to stay the night.

I stayed here for a week thinking I may get a little bored of beaching at boracay but I couldn't have been more wrong!! Frendz was unbelievable for meeting new people who all want to have a good time. The hostel is set up for a great atmosphere with bands on the weekend and a big central area. Dorms are clean but basic, food is great and staff are super lovely. Can't say enough about this place, blooming fabulous!!

We enjoyed our stay in this resort. The place tidy and comfortable. It also have day beds right in front of d beach! Its tied up with Globy's so u can enjoy watching the waves while eating/drinking. Very relaxing. And they did a very attentive service right from Kalibo airport all the way to Boracay. I will reccomend this place!

I highly recommend staying at the hostel to anyone going to Boracay! Especially if you are travelling alone. Super welcoming atmosphere, great staff, easy place to meet people, great house parties, cheap beer! And so helpful in organizing day trips. Thank you so much for making my stay in Boracay so much more than I expected it to be :-)

Great place for relaxe, chill out, friendly staff, close beach, silent at night. Price worth. The staff is very service minded and giving you good tips to whats on in Boracay. They also help you out with any kind of service you might need at your stay.

Ideally located in the heart of Boracay with a great vibe for backpackers. It seems this place is one of the most popular stopping points for the backpacker community and its understandable why. Cheap booze, food and a free pool table so great for meeting people. The deluxe room was pretty standard for the price. Overall a comfortable stay.
