We stayed at Trafalgar Cottages for 3 nights. We had a simple doubl bed room with enclosed bathroom. This bathroom was basic and a bit smelly, but we Truly enjoyed our stay. Especially the nice owners who are willing to give advice where to go and how are a big bonus of this accommodation. It is 2 min from the... More

I stayed here in 2012. I booked 3 nights and stayed about 7 weeks in the end. Great staff. Close to the more quieter part of the beach but easy walk to the other parts. I more around and stayed in 4 different rooms of various prices all were good. One of the best places I've stayed in anywhere.

Stayed there last Dec 19-21 2015. A friend of mine from Malay Aklan recommended this accommodation when i asked him to give the best inn for a solo backpacker. And i must say, it really is wonderful! I contacted SIr Joel upon arriving at the Station 3 Jetty Port to ask for the landmark. He told me to get of... More

We decided to go to Boaracay to be lazy on a beach for a few days but had decided we wanted to stay in Station 3. Station's 1 and 2 were too busy from research we had done. We found the location of Trafalgar Cottages to be perfect. Set back from the main road but within a 5 minute walk... More

Probably the nicest cheap rooms on boracay. Very clean and the rooms feel nice and homey, they have hammocks and a kitchen. Very nice owner, you can get lots of good information from him. Its VERY close to the beach and you don't get any noise from the bars.

A great, great find. We arrived a little later than expected but the owner still had our room available and was prepared for our reservation. Clean room with fresh sheets and a comfy bed, appropriate furniture, a clean and well maintained shared bathroom. It was a great stay here that was extended by another day. The WiFi worked well, we... More

If you're looking for good budget accommodation in Boracay this is the place for you! It has lovely character and the couple that run it are really friendly and helpful. It's basic but it's got everything you need including facilities in the kitchen so you can make breakfast. Location is really handy, close to beach and main road if you... More

If you are looking for cheap yet cozy Boracay accommodations, Trafalgar Cottages is definitely the hostel for you. Stayed here March last year for 3D/2N, and just this week for 4D/3N, and yep, Trafalgar--just like Boracay--is a place worth coming back to. Located smack right into E-Mall, Station 3, just a 5-minute walk to the beach, Trafalgar Cottages is the... More

I was traveling solo in the Philippines and was looking for a private room to stay in Boracay. It is not easy if you're a budget traveler but Trafalgar Cottages is a great option! The room was spacious with my own terrace and a hammock. The rooms are not new but very clean and well maintained. The place itself is... More
