Apart from the first night where we suffered a blackout, everything about our stay here was great. Less than a minute walk to station 1 beach, very good location. Great ambiance and surroundings inside as well.

INCONSIDERATE GUESTS (SOME) AND STAFFS (SOME)”
The hostel is perfect with its price which is budget friendly and it's just near the white beach of Boracay. But, during my stay, I had a hard time taking some rest because some of the staffs were talking so loud in the hallway that echoes all over the hostel. To the staffs of Boracay Backpackers, please watch out also for some inconsiderate guests who just let their kids run, play and shout along the hallway. The noise was terrible and ruined other guests' sleep.

Service, staff, location and cleanliness is a 5 for me.”
I only ranked 3 stars for facilities because they don’t provide food (I asked and it’s a permit issue). Overall, one of the best places on a budget.

The best hostel for me in Boracay!”
This is my 3rd time I checked-in to this hostel and it does not disappoint me. Ate Jance, who is a part-owner of the place, was very welcoming to her guests and she even recognized and greeted me immediately the moment we entered the premises. What I like most of staying at backpackers is the hospitality of the management. There are lots of nice and big hostels in Boracay and though the place is quite simple, it’s definitely worth returning. Great stay and worth the value of money. I will definitely come back. Thank you Ate Janice and staff for the nice accommodation! More power to you guys!❤️

Best budget hotel in Boracay”
I wish I knew about them earlier. I used to stay at Eriko’s and back hotel of Alice, they called it Alice 2. Alice 2 no longer exists. Boracay backpackers is the epitome of budget hotel, great location, great rooms. Staff are nice. They also answer the phone number you can find online unlike other hotels that you can’t reach.

+ checked me in early as soon as the bed became vacant. +place is accessible to affordable eatery, bakery and laundry +wifi (only at the reception though) +fast checkout -could have been nicer if the guests can be informed that they can use the kitchen and hang thier clothes dry at the 2nd floor - pillow cases , beds in the huts are not clean. - stains from food/drinks on the hut table was still there the next day. despite the negatives. i will still come back here if i am a solo traveller.

The Hostel is really close to the white beach (2m). The staff is helpful and friendly. The AC in the dorm room is a bit noisy. The bathroom in our dorm was broken, but they fixed it really quick.

VALUE FOR MONEY: THEY GOT WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO HAVE A GOOD STAY IN BORACAY”
PROS - excellent location, midpoint of Station 1 and 2 ; easily accessible to the main road ; 2-mins walk to the beach ; very close to the restaurants ; very near the quiet part of the beach - got a Deluxe Standard room by myself - looks exactly like the pic; very spacious room and bathroom; has the essentials needed for a good sleep and toilet breaks :) - staff are very friendly and always on standby to help CONS - the pressure of the shower is just terrible! took me forever to wash off!!! - unhappy with the breakfast - cook wasn’t very nice and food was so-so - room with better lighting

Cheapest and best place I found for backpackers. It lacked a social atmosphere (mostly locals) but it was convenrntconveniently close to the beach, which was what I wanted. If you conversate with the workers, they're really nice. Food and drinks helpful to have but they were only OK. Hostel is a bit hard to find at first.

They are just few steps away from the beach . The hotel is surprisingly quiet at night which is very good when you want a good night's sleep. The vicinity is clean and the staffs are very helpful. Just a setback in their doorknobs. Ours broke down the 1st night we stayed but they were able to fix it right away. I wish they serve more options for breakfast.

First-timer (solo-bora-airplane)”
As a first-timer solo traveler I had an amazing experience with the help of this hostel. For value of money I rate it as 5 since its the cheapest when I booked it online. For location its just 2 mins away from the beach, and not far with D Mall where you could find everything. For cleanliness there are some items needs imorovement, one time both of the common toilets are clogged though the fault should be of the guests but then the staff did not notice it rightaway need to notify them that CRs need to be cleaned and some dog stools on the grasses and might distract those who are eating. For the staff I gave all of them 5, they are very approachable, entertaining queries, special requests. I want to give them tips but im on a tight budget. For facilities, improvements on the aircons specially for 8bed dorm, there are nights and the door knobs,maybe its just a rare case but I almost got locked in our cr, it is not locked but we could not open it. But those are just little things needs fixing, overall I really had a great time staying in this hostel. Plus they often play new songs to break the sleeping mode. Will definitely choose to be here again next time.

Really clean and quiet place in the middle of the busy island of Boracay. The staff are always smiling and friendly. You don't hear anything at night so you get a good night's rest and the beds are comfortable and big enough. Great place to stay in Boracay, highly recommended!
