One of my first experiences of a so called hostel environment and I was pleasantly surprised. Took a while to find the place as arrived at night time and street lights didn't seem in fashion at that end of the road and we had to make our way down a narrow pitch black alleyway - if we had known you...

I was in love with this place as soon as i walked in. People working there are one of the nicest and most helpful you will ever meet. Hostel and rooms are clean daily, including changing sheets. Close to the beach and the main road. They organise tours like sailing around the island and snorkling. Also the free pasta and... More

My husband and I stayed here from Nov 30 to Dec 3, 2014. What I like is their service oriented mindset. Whenever I have concerns, they answer my email promptly. Whenever I need something to be done, they do it quite well. They have good breakfast as well (although it's not included in the package). When we came, we were... More

Took a solo room with a double bed, AC and own toilet/bath. At US$40/night it's really nothing fancy but comfort is what am after. There is construction ongoing and it was right across my room, though was advised about this weeks before the trip via email so was expected. Makeshift reception and dining/drinking area was very small in the adjacent... More

Fantastic place to stay! My room was quite roomy, clean with own shower and toilet. The room was made daily with fresh towels, etc... It has a common area which is being renovated so there was another makeshift common area which they have daily happy hour with cheap drinks and music. Great place to meet people and enjoy the night... More

I just left frendz, amazing place, easy to meet other travelers and cheap but, I didn't like they let me know the day before our arrival that they are doing construction right now (it seems this has been at least a few weeks) so we never had the chance to look for a less noisy alternative (the guys start to...

HIghly recommended for SOLO/GROUP BACKPACKERS! Stayed here for 2 weeks, last week of July and first week of August, when it was the rainy season. It was indeed the place to meet "Frendz". Met a bunch of crazy people during my stay, backpackers mostly. Stayed at the female dorm where I met a really fun surfer chic whom I still... More

Recently stayed at Frendz for 4 days, 3 nights. BF and I booked a private room with our own private bath. Our private room (#10) was extremely nice and located in a more quiet and secluded part of the property away from the noise of the common area. The rooms are made of bamboo and really gives that authenticity feel... More

We had been recommended Frendz (mainly due to lack of other hostel choices on Borocay) and I must admit I doubt the place would thrive without the desperation. The whole site was under construction with work starting at 7am (not ideal after a heavy night on Red Horse) and the rooms were extremely grim, no natural light and dangerously steep... More

Do not look anywhere else if you're staying in Boracay. The location is on point with a short walk to the beach and to the center where all the beach bars are.. The rooms are big, clean, standard for backpackers. We stayed in a double private little cottage which was only a bit more than a dorm and it was... More
