    Though it is not yet renovated but the accomodation itself is very good. I was here for 5 days and it is so much fun. Free wifi, breakfast, free use of computer, sometimes they have party time on the roof top. It was cool to meet foreigners in this hostel. By the way I am a Filipino. Overall, thank you MNL Hostel for a great experience.

    Lovely hostel”

    Checking out from MNL Hostel and moving to another side of the island. This hostel is really great and clean. I'll miss my tiny little room. If you are planning for a budget trip to Boracay, this is highly recommended. Only 600m walk to D'Mall, where most shops, restaurants and bars are at. One of the good reason to stay in hostel is, you get to know many people who are ready for excitement from other countries.. #mnlbeachhostelboracay #mnlhostel

    We were a group of three ladies on a budget travel. We booked our stay here two weeks before with excellent, value for money prices through agoda. Our stay was excellent. They have breakfast at the roof top. Except for the rain, it was good. They have clean comfort rooms. This is a deal breaker for me, so I loved our stay there. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stay at Boracay on a budget.

    location, breakfast, staff

    The hostels aims to have their guests socialize with each other so I expected more of that. But it all boils down to what kind of crowd is currently staying. The staff are very accommodating, and trying to help at all times. So kudos on that. The breakfast is okay too. They make very consistent soft-boiled eggs. :)

    I stayed at MNL for five nights & I have to say it was one of the best traveling experiences I've had. The people were great, the staff were exceptional, & the place was always clean. Drinking on the rooftop is one of the biggest perks of this place, and their location puts anything you need within walking distance. I would highly recommend this hostel,especially to anyone traveling on a budget.

    Cozy Hostel strategically located”

    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.

    Flashpacker Retreat; Best Value Compared to Others”

    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+!

    The staff there was always cheerful and friendly no matter what time of the day it is. They will talk with you and give tips on where to go/what to do in Boracay. The hostel itself is clean and the room design is rather youthful. Good place for young travellers and not for those picky ones

    Best hostel experience ever!”

    Clean toilets, Friendly staff, good location!

    I was so reluctant to go home after 4 nights stay here. The people: Staff are young, responsible and FUN. They were always around to help everyone at the hostel. They joined in the parties at the roof and played along anytime. The place: Hostel is really new and the toilets are really always clean Beds and pillows are so white and smelling good and bath & beach towels are provided upon check-in. Special mention of the roof and deck. For kite surfers, this hostel is ideal because its only 3 minutes walk away. Other beach-goers/ shoppers - you can save a lot on transport because White Beach & D'mall and the 99999999999 restaurants are just 5 minutes walk out. MNL is definitely more than a hostel! **to backpackers- Hostel was fully booked on that Friday and Saturday i was there. So do book in advance else you need to sleep over at the roof or mattresses near the staircase. Rooms near the roof can get really noisy at night and fan rooms can get really stuffy. Go for the AC rooms (you get a place to hang out your clothes!) or rooms on the lower floor.

    I was thoroughly impressed by the level of commitment by the staff of MNL Boracay. Not only were they approachable and very very friendly to all guest, they were so knowledgeable about all the fun things to do around Boracay and how to go about getting the best deals! MNL Boracay manages fun, professionalism and that personal touch all so well. Not to forget the fact that they are conveniently located 5 minutes from the central shopping district and about 3 minutes away from the nearest beach. Value is amazing, people are fantastic, definitely worth a try. I will be back!

    Location: Walking distance from Dmall and near Bulabog beach. There's no signage to locate the place but the locals knows it too well so dont be shy to ask :) There's plenty of restaurants beside the bldg. Cleanliness: OK for the price.. The room is clean love the privacy of each bed, but the shared bathroom has foul smell and the shower room doesn't have enough space/tool to hang clothes :( Facility: The place have lots of instagramable spots :) The rooftop is lovely for breakfast and for hanging out... If you are looking for a budget place to stay in boracay and wouldn't mind to be away from the beach, this is a perfect place to stay :)

    Convenient, individual cubby beds with bedside light, power socket, and a small locker with key. Shared toilets and baths were numerous, you probably won't catch yourself waiting for a stall.

    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!
