    Loved our stay here! 😍”

    Very good location, it’s near station 1 and dmall. Wifi is not good inside the rooms. They have a common kitchen where you can cook your own food and the most important thing for us is they have unlimited drinking water to keep you hydrated. My husband and I loved our room, it’s clean and i loved the interior design even though we don’t have a television. The receptionist allowed us to have an early check in cause we arrived at 7am so we still got enough sleep on our first day. Staff are friendly and approachable ☺️ great value for money.

    i enjoyed the bathrooms being close to the beach but it is still a bit of a walk. thr internet was frustrating since it works in public spaces. also we killed maybe 15 mosquitoes when we checkes in. there aren't tvs eventhough the pictures have them.

    Plus Side: - Receptionists are friendly & helpful & can tell U where to buy tickets to Kalibo/Caticlan Airport - Transport companies such as Island Star Express & South West all know where Second Wind Hostel is and can drop U off right outside the hostel so that U don't have to walk in from the main road and find where it is :) - Within 3 minutes of walk to White Beach - Directly opposite Kubo which is an affordable restaurant & near to other eatery places - There is a water hose right at the entrance for spraying sand off your feet and sandals Down Side: - Wifi is not available in dorm room A but Wifi is OK at the common lounge area - The floors in the dorm need sweeping & mopping - There should be a sign to inform guests to spray their sandals and feet when they come in & receptionists should also remind guests of that during check in. Otherwise they bring sand into their rooms & beds. -Staff should tell all guests during check in not to talk loudly after 11pm & enforce the rule

Definitely will go back to this hostel.

    Checking in was a breeze. We encountered a minor hiccup when their website and Agoda stated that the room should include a television. As per the staff, all TVs are pulled out from all the rooms. I raised my concern and the manager (part-owner?) took care of our need. "Gel" offered to transfer us at their sister hostel MNL Boracay in a private room with free breakfast to boot. Kudos! I appreciate the upgrade.

    I booked in mixed dormitory and surprised to see that I am the only occupant for my entire 3 day 2 night stay. The room was clean as well as the bathroom and it was nice to note that there are 2 bathrooms inside the dormitory. Linens and pillows were fresh and bath towels can be replaced by request without any fee. I love that there is a pantry where you can cook and the fridge as well to put your drinks and other stuff. Less than 5 minutes of walk to the beach . Will probably come back.

    Great value for money and super accommodating staff”

    Second Wind Hostel was a great find in Boracay. I've always stayed in rooms at the beach front but they were just plain rooms and a bit expensive. I tried booking a double bed room in Second Wind and it didn't disappoint - the room was really nice, clean and with cute interiors. The staff was very friendly and accommodating - they attended to all our needs and they were really helpful. Although Second Wind isn't at the beachfront, the short walk was okay. Location was nice too since it's almost at the borderline of Station 1 and 2. For the quality of the rooms and the service of the staff which you will get at a super low hostel price - it's definitely a place I'd recommend to friends and go back to :)

    The Perfect Boracay Quick Getaway Hotel”

    Cozy. Fun. Fresh.

    My stay at Second Wind BBB was awesome !! It is perfect for backpack travelers who spend most of the time in the sun and under the stars. Second Wind has that feel of being at home where the kitchen is accessible, beds are comfy, rooms are cooled even on the hottest days, walking distance to 2 beaches (White Beach and Bolabog Beach), convenience stores and pharmacy nearby, a bakeshop across the street, peaceful location (MNL Hostel has the same concept but more for the young at heart where socializing breaks the silence), the staff are like your friends, strangers become your friends, and accessible to the main road that can take you to other places on the island via trike such as Diniwid (Spider House) and Puka Shell Beach. Second Wind BBB is my second home in Boracay.

    friendly staffs, very clean room, convenient

    The place is surprisingly clean and the staff is really friendly. They are constantly improving the outlook of the hotel and we had free mango smoothies from the staffs while we were chit chatting at common area. They provide free and hot breakfast every morning (cook upon order)! We stay in Boracay for 10 days and we have tried 3 different types of hotel/hostel and second wind is by far our favorite place to stay in during these period! Definitely will stay here again if i come to Boracay again

    Worth every peso”

    Location, quality of room set up, helpful owner & staff

    I've stayed in more expensive resorts along Stations 1 & 2 during previous Boracay trips, and though these places were along the shore, it would be too much of a hassle to sleep at night due to noise from adjacent bars & ongoing parties. Second Wind perfectly addresses this concern while enabling me to only spend 1/3 of what I usually do per night for a Double Room. I loved the super comfy bed, hotel quality pillows & sheets, rain shower head, bidet, bathroom & beach towels, hair blower, flat screen cable TV and free breakfast at English Bakery; all these for only P1,800/night. My boyfriend also stayed at a Mixed Dorm room for P490/night, and he was very satisfied with his accommodation. He met new friends from all over the world, and was very impressed that even when he left his stuff (non valuables) lying on his bed, none were lost or touched. The hostel is only a mere 10 steps from the Main Road so it's really easy to get a trike, and get to whichever part of the island as one pleases. I also got a bit hungry during the middle of the night, and it was comforting to have been able to buy fresh fruit from a small stand & grab some yummy fruit shake from Jonah's... all just less than a minute away. The place is also about a 7-minute walk from D'Mall. As for the hostel's owner & staff, they were so helpful when I had queries & requests up to the point that if they don't have immediate answers to my questions, they would either Google or make some calls just to appease. Another thing, the owner shared to us that Second Wind guests can access the beach lounge area of Ti Braz (Station 2) for free so we did just that & chilled for one afternoon on beach beds without having the need to order anything. We just showed our Second Wind keys to the resto bar staff. 😁

    Great hotel for a very reasonable price!”

    Our hotel room was very clean when we arrived. The aircon was cold enough. There was even a hair blow drier. The room is spacious enough for two people. The hotel is conveniently located in Station 1, just around 2-3 min walk to the white beach. The price is cheaper compared to other hotels along Station 1. The only con that I will say is that the bar in front of the hotel can be pretty loud and you can hear it from the room. Overall, I will still recommend Second Wind Hostel!

    I really like the Hostel's lovely decoration and facility and friendly staffs. Just a bit recommendation that they should clean up more often the bathroom and check the heater inside bathroom because the one in my room can't heat the water for shower. Location are closed to the beach so it's convenient, but the road nearby are quite dusty and watery all the time (don't know why). In overall, all is worth the money!

    This is the best hostel in Station 1! The dorm type (where my friend and I stayed) has comfy and wide beds, two bathrooms, HUGE space to walk around, and cute/ efficient lockers. Pros: -Staff especially Kuya Joey is nice, he even accompanied me to the MNL Party. -Short distance to the best beach (station 1), and to main roads. -lots of cheap food around the area -you can cook and store food (kitchen is really tidy) -CLEAN Cons/ Room for Improvement: -faster wifi in rooms -more areas to hang clothes -please serve breakfast! :)

    Decent hostel - clean facilities but not a lot of character”

    stayed here for a couple of nights. the beds were clean. toilets were surprisingly well maintained. good location. the only problem would be the staff - the people at the front desk dont seem to be particularly happy and can't even answer simple questions about what to do or where to go. also, there was basically no atmosphere. for a hostel, this is pretty dead.

    Even though the room isn't soundproof enough, you could still get a good night's sleep because of their amazingly comfortable bed! The room is cosy with lovely colour patterns. Hot shower works perfectly fine too! There's a Korean mart nearby (on the right) where you could buy some snacks and toiletries. There's also a spa nearby where you could get a P300/hour body massage and it was one of the best I got!

    Kind, Accomodating and Helpful”

    Hotel is very near to the station 1 beach (around 5 mins walk). There is a shortcut just along the corner of the road. They also helped us to book our water activities (helmet diving) and I could say it was very helpful since there are unlicensed people offering water activities roaming around the beach. Our room is just right for 2 people (Double room), modern, clean and cozy. Money paid is worth it. :)
