“Wicked awesome hostel and staff!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

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. Wish I got an AC room but all in all I was very happy with the hostel. Really no complaints, if you want to meet new friends and have an amazing time this is the place for you!!

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 of blood on it!! I was so shocked!

We had no choice but to stay for the night. But the next day we immediately check-out Frendz and check-in another hotel. Though the price is doubled but definitely worth it and we get to have better quality of sleep and more energy to enjoy the beautiful beach.

Just learned about this hotel from the reviews from other travelers and backpackers. From what I have experienced, this hotel is the most convenient place to be. It is near the D'Mall where you can buy your pasalubongs and other stuff that you might need (drugstore, convenient store even bakery). It is also near the Willy's Rock and Epic Bar (places you must visit when you're in Boracay). Though it is not a beach front hotel, a two minute walk from the hotel to the beach is not that bad at all.

You can also enjoy the beach benches located in the beach front for Frendz guests and you will be accommodate by Dennis (that is why some guests called it Dennis' Place). Staffs of Frendz Resort were all very accommodating and friendly. They can arrange everything for you, from your airport transfer back and forth to your island hopping and other Boracay activities. This place is very quiet, far from the noise of Boracay night life yet near to the places you wanted to be. There's no place I rather be when I will have my vacation again there. :) thumbs up!

Room Tip: You might want to have AC rooms but Fan rooms were not that bad. Rooms were bungalow style that is w...

Stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights with my friends. It's a 3 mins walk away from the beachfront. It has a very natury feel into it, like you're living in a big garden. They have a lounge and billiards area where you can meet new people. The rooms are spacious but a lil bit dusty. There were also a lot of insects inside our CR. What I loved most about this place are the very accomodating staff.

Overall, if you're on a budget, this is the best place to stay. Good enough area and room. Great service.

Really enjoyed my time at Frendz. It was a really friendly vibe and well organised hostel. Nothing was trouble for the staff and it was a nice and communal style hostel so very easy to meet people if you want to.
I stayed in a 8 bed dorm which didn't have aircon but it had so many fans that it was actually really comfortable. Only one bathroom though which wasn't an issue for me but may be for some. Apparently the smaller dorms and private rooms are great too though.

Room Tip: Some of the large dorms have upstairs and downstairs dorms and are connected by rickety stairs (some...
