Perfect for those who are in tight budget”
We booked a standard room with fan but their wifi is barely working in our room so we upgraded to their room with aircon. Besides, I don't want a shared bathroom. - Location: it's kind of hard getting inside especially when you have huge luggage. You have to look for Green Monkey instead of Blue Bamboo because that's their main office - Cleanliness: The area is fairly clean. We cleaned our own room during our 1-week stay in Boracay - Staff: Ate Jacky was friendly enough. She offered tours & activities within the island but we found out that the prices are too high compared to others who offer the same activities. So if you want to save, go on a price comparison or go straight directly to the activity organizers - Facilities: Do not expect too much. We have working aircon and heater in our room, that's enough for us. Some of their fans are broken. I wish the doors had double locks too. Anyway, glad we picked the deluxe room Overall, it's very close to the beach and Palawan Express. It's in station 2, so you are in the middle- close to everything (if you love to walk). Would still recommend. Cheap & safe.
Good location, clean place, friendly staff”
The Staff was very friendly and helpfull.. boracay is an expensive place, blue bamboo wasnt cheap cheap as for backpackers, but it was a pretty good deal, the place was very clean, shared bathroom was constantly cleaned, and the room was cleaned for us every day. The location is perfect, few steps from the beach and everything you need. The only thing was that it was soooo hot! We had a fan room and asked for a second one which they kindly gave to us, but it wasn't enough.. Don't know if it was only our room, as it was the last one.. Super hot!
Good price, good location, nice room and staff”
Very nice place, the room was conforming to the photos, the bathroom is shared but they have 3 for 8 rooms, and they are always clean, one of the bathroom has hot shower not expected for the price and not common in Philippines. The staff is always nice they always satisfied our request whit a smile. The best place quality/price.
nice room with spacious bed”
We booked here during summer (May 2015), and we got the hotel rate at promo price. The staff were amazing. everyone was friendly which adds to our pleasant stay at this hotel. Only problem was the mosquitos on the first day but it was gone after we stayed overnight. Everything was pleasant after that. Stayed here for two nights-3days. and I can say that I will come back here and will also recommend this to my friends and family.
Clean, hot shower nice staff”
third time here, really nice place room service every day, hot shared shower, the staff is always nice. Not too noisy really close to the white beach. Perfect cheap accommodation we'll come back again when head back to Boracay! I recommend this place
Great place to stay. Recommended”
Great place to stay. Recommended to all budget type of vacation without compromising your enjoyment while staying in boracay. Most important thing, the staff, they are nice and friendly which is the most important thing. This place is in my list that i surely consider when going back to boracay. -ian
2 minutes walk to the beach. 2 minutes walk to D'Talipapa. Clean room & toilet. Even fan room but very cold at night. No noisy environment. In the centre of everything at station 2. Everything was superbly comfy!
The place is cheap, but that's because the rooms are miniscule and hot as hell, it's located in a creepy dark alley, there are no on-site staff. We only stayed here 3 nights because I stupidly prepaid. On the first morning, I asked for toilet paper (NONE to be found in all 3 shared baths), I was told to "wait a while"...an hour later and still no TP. I gave up and went elsewhere. The breakfast is decent; it's served at Victory Divers resort where the staff seem really irritated to have to interact with Blue Bamboo guests (I was refused a glass of water with breakfast because it was "not included"). Note: check-in is at Green Monkey, on the side street of D'Talipapa just before the dark alley of BB. You must retrieve and drop your keys there.
Nice accommodation close to the beach”
The hotel and location are lovely, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The only thing is there are cockerels very close to the hostel and they start crowing at about 5am, so take some very good ear plugs.
Near the beach”
Located very ner the beach, only 50m. Good area :) we are very Happy with our stay at blue bambo.
It's impossible to stay in the fan room as it's like a sauna. We asked for an extra fan so the staff happily gave us a spare one. Bathroom is always clean. Location is great! It's surrounded by souvenir shops, fresh food market and restaurants. The only problem is, they don't have a stay-in staff/receptionist. We checked out at 5AM and had to walk to their main hotel (Green Monkey) and hand the keys in. There was flood so that was highly inconvenient. They should have a drop-off key box for guests in the hotel.
I had a hard time looking for the reception area. I was on Google Maps and directed me to the area directly. Luckily, there was a guy in washing area told me I need to check in in Green Monkey. Reception area was few meters away from the actual room. Also did not mention that comfort room was shared. Urinal for men was clogged for two days. Just hoped that they stated this on room details. Overall, if you plan on staying out all day and night outside and just want a cheap stay in Boracay with good location, this is the place.
worth spending that little bit extra”
The room was pretty basic with nothing special. Good if you just need the room for passing out. Had a bit of hard time finding it as its in some alley. Unfortunately for us it had tipped it down had to walk at least 50m through puddles. There was no reception there and only through other guests there did we learn we had to go to "green Frog", which was their other hotel, to get checked in. Was a bit of hustle in the rain. We had only booked for one night and were at bit surprised to be awoken the next morning at around 11 informing us about theeir checkout time even though we had told them we would probably stay longer depending on when we got up. needless to say, we checked out.
satisfied to their aircon room”
the aircon room is big and really good value for the money, therefore we will recommend it. just 3 minutes to the beach.. we liked the care taker. he is very nice.. only that i dont recommend their fan room.. it was so warm and misty.
Best value for money”
Stayed for 3 nights in a non-ac room. It can be too hot during daytime so better get an AC room. Nevertheless place is cool, perfect location 3 mins walk. Its near D'Talipapa so you can grab food in an instant.
Neat stay at Blue Bamboo”
The rooms are in a bad state, but the shared bathrooms were clean and newish. The given wifi-code from the GREEN MONKEY didn´t work, but there is another wifi you can use (GMB) and their code is written on a note in the the hallway. Short way to the beach, best option if you are on a low budget around station 2.
Not recommended ”
We booked the suite but this suite with a common bathroom sharing with another family I don't know Blue bamboo should make it very clear that the bathroom is only one & is shared the listing is misleading I had to look for another accommodation. It's a waste of money. They need to be truthful in their listing of this 'suite' it's an old house with a common bathroom - not acceptable
Perfect place for families”
Everyone is so friendly and the facilities is exquisite for the price
OK hostel - nothing more. ”
It was OK - not more than that. Rooms are really hot, usually NO water pressure in the showers so not possible to take a shower. But I suppose in a place such as Boracay its 'good'value for money. There is no place to sit or relax either, so you just sleep there and that's it. Not a good place to meet travellers or anything.
Bang for Buck”
The location was just right for me. Safe distance away from the noises on both beach and highway side. Few walk away from the beach. The room was clean. Only concern was the ceiling does not rotate. They have 3 common bathrooms, all with bidet, toiler and shower, so you won't have a hard time getting into one anytime of the day. The staff was friendly and was willing to answer our queries re: tours, fairs and other stuff about bora. Already recommended this to a friend of mine.
