This hostel is run by really lovely people Joel & Julia It is situated in station 3 and is a short walk from the beach. The hostel is a oasis of greenery in the middle of a shopping mall that has been built around it which is such a shame. The little cottages you stay in are comfortable and clean...

We stayed here the first time we went to Boracay Island. It is situated at Station 3. A lot of walking if you want to go to the main part of the busy island. But if you want the quiet part of the island, this is the best location. The owner is very accommodating. He gave us tips and information...

My family enjoyed staying here. Staff are friendly and accommodating. They also have free wi-fi. Price is affordable. We had fun staying here and will definitely come back 😊. I will recommend this to my friends.

I stayed here for five nights with my boyfriend. The hostel is hidden behind a shopping center and about 10 minutes from the beach. This location was the only downside, I would have loved to be right on the beachfront. However everything else was perfect. We had a room on the second floor. We opted for the fan the first...

I was on a tight budget when I first visited Boracay and I was not able to make any reservations at all. This place was recommended by the trike driver when I asked for a cheap place to stay. The room is neat and you can use kitchen utensils if you plan to cook your meal. The caretaker was nice...

Stayed here a whole week in June with my boyfriend, we loved it. Since the very first moment the owner and the stuff were very kind and helpful. There is nothing we would complain about it, room was big enough and they offered to change the sheets and towels whenever we wanted. Wi fi was alright and you get hot...

The accommodation is simple, clean and very conveniently located. I really enjoyed my stay, and was sad when I had to move onto to another location as the room was only available for 2 days, but I had not booked so this was expected. Joel and Pearl was very accommodating , and they gave me lots of good advice as...

Having booked this hostel because of the number of positive reviews that they've received, I was shocked when it turned out to be substandard in every possible way. ->> DIRTY - on top of the room being tiny and stuffy, my sheets did not look clean, nor did the room. The shower room and toilet were in an appalling state...
