    Flashpacker Retreat; Best Value Compared to Others”

    Things I like
    Location, Comfort, Cleanliness

    I stayed at both MNL Hostel and Frendz Hostel, which are about a 5-10 minute walk from each other. Odds are you are also trying to choose between these two places, as they are the cheapest in Boracay. MNL Hostel is spotlessly clean, with large cubicle-style beds in their AC dorm rooms, and a bar on the top floor. It is located near Bulabog Beach, and White Beach is about a 5-to-10 minute walk in the opposite direction. Really, you can't go wrong for the location. Frendz has more atmosphere and events, and it was easy to make, well, friends. However, the facilities at Frendz are more limited, if this is important to you. The AC dorm rooms at MNL had plush beds, more privacy, and were just cleaner. Frendz is "tiki" and social, while MNL is "posh." I didn't see any scheduled events at MNL Hostel to build a sense of community, but Frendz offered a very cheap island-hopping boat trip. Things such as this would go a long way toward creating a more well-rounded hostel atmosphere at MNL Hostel. On the whole, I strongly recommend this location. It is only slightly more expensive than the bungalow, fan-cooled rooms you'd get nearer White Beach, but MNL is closer to supermarkets and cheaper local eats. A+!

    Things I like
    Location (within walking distance to D'Mall), clean, friendly staffs

    A group of 6 of us booked into MNL Beach Hostel after reading about the excellent reviews from the other fellow travellers who have stayed at here. We enjoyed of 7 nights accommodation at MNL. Besides representing value for money, it's located at a quiet area away from the bustling nightlife of Station 2. Having said that, it was strategically located and getting to D'Mall and the White Beach was just 5-10 mins by foot. If you are keen on watching the Boracay sunrise, it's just 3 mins away to Bulabog Beach. We were always greeted by the friendly staffs from the very moment we checked into MNL. The room is clean and you can request to have your towels changed every 2 days. Common bathrooms and toilets are cleaned daily. WiFi is the strongest at the lobby common area and the roof deck (which is our favourite hangout where you can laze around and enjoy the strong sea breeze of Boracay). Would definitely stay here again if I'm back to Boracay.

    Very friendly and accommodating staff! Hostel is around 8 minutes walk to the main beach and 5 minute walk to the beach where water activities are done. Private rooms are clean and cozy. Would've been better if there were more options for breakfast and if staff could ask some guests to have a little privacy and be a little courteous maybe. At the time of our stay, people booked in other rooms (probably 2 families) kept their doors open so hallway was noisy and had a some kind of funky smell. Aside from that, we had a very pleasant stay MNL Beach Hostel Boracay!

    MNL Beach Hostel & Second Wind BBB”

    Upon ariving at MNL Beach Hostel, we found out that our rooms weren't available since there was repairs going on. So the staff took us to their sister hostel which is Second Wind. If you really want a packer type of Hostel, MNL is definetly for you. The place is quite hip and fun. But it's not as close to the main beach as you might think. We got checked-in at Second Wind Breakfast, Beds and Bunks. And the Hostel was really superb and exceeded my expectations. It's near station 1 so it was quite close to the beach. Rooms are fairly new so everything was clean and orderly. They have a common area with good wifi so you can hang out there with friends. Both hostels have a tie up with a beachfront restaurant so you can chill and lay on beach beds. Overall the place is great on both hostels. I usually go for the fancy hotels in the island but this one is definetly worth visiting.

    Things I like
    Clean, modern and roof deck!

    I stayed here for 2 nights in a private room over the Christmas period as a solo traveller and really liked it. I'd just come from what was supposed to be a high end resort on the island but actually preferred MNL for it's atmosphere and friendly attitude. The hostel is brand new so everything is super clean and finished off to a modern standard - basic but has everything you need with a design finish. The common areas are all very welcoming and the breakfast area has a roof terrace which was a great place to enjoy a drink and talk to people. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great - right between Bulabog beach for kiteboarding and then D'Mall for the prettier white beach. Walking distance to most of the main bars and restaurants. My only complaint would be the noise - my room on the 2nd floor overlooked the main street so there was traffic and building noise whih was pretty loud at all times of the day. They do give out free earplugs though and after a few drinks you don't notice it anymore! Top tip - there's a bar just down the road towards D'Mall behind a kiteboarding shop which is great, really chilled out vibe and the owner is great to talk to. When I was there his friends turned up so there was an impromptu live music jamming session that was great fun!
