Felt like a second home with quick access to both main and back (Bulabog) beaches as well as the convenience of DMall.

Stayed in an airconditioned dorm that is kept clean. Your space includes a comfortable bed with a lamp and outlets (inclu USB ports). You can also use a locker that can fit a 50L backpack.

Restaurant is a common area where it's nice to just hang out (or even work!) in the morning. It seems like a social hostel pre-COVID but nights when I stayed there tend to be relatively quiet (although there's a pool table which guests can enjoy).

Staff are there to willingly help always while giving you privacy or space.

No it is not 5/5. This is 100/5!! Always booking my stay for a week or so and I must say I appreciated everything during my most recent stay. The staff were so warm and friendly. They would accommodate you all day all night. Thanks to Zaldy and Marlou for helping me out during my night shift (coz I work at night time). To Robin who has always been friendly! To the other staff (Christian, Rebecca, Steve), thank you so so much! The food was also great!!! All the food that I ordered were good and priced fairly. 🧡 Lastly, if you're a freelancer and needs a really good place to work with strong wifi connection, you need to stay at this hostel. See you again soon!!

The hostel is set down an alley way, which is a two minute walk from the beach. I was travelling with my girlfriend and it was my birthday whilst I was there, so we decided to book a deluxe double room. The room was very clean and housekeeping visited every day at around 1pm. The only downside to the room was the location. It's set right next to the restaurant and bar, and on the nights when you dont fancy getting drunk or singing on karaoke then it can be quite annoying. However, the music never continued past 11pm. For an extra few pounds, you can get more private rooms, with additional amenities on the island. My girlfriend complained about a lack of hairdryer!

We attended the free pasta night, which I would say is more directed the solo traveller. The staff go out of their way to get you involved with the night and try to sit you with like-minded travellers, making it very easy to meet new people!

The hostel is very secure, with security at the gates and 24 hours reception. Overall, Boracay as an island felt extremely safe, but it was good to see that the hostel were taking extra precautions.

Overall, a nice experience, with the only issue coming from the location of the private rooms in comparison to the shared ones. There were some 'interesting' guests, so be prepared to meet people from all walks of life!

Walking in the place seemed awesome, great location, ok dorms, great staff seemed fine for the price… until I saw the bathroom. It looks like it’s never been cleaned with the corners black with old dust and gunk, cobwebs and spiders covering all the walls. Dirt and rust and lime scale covering everything from the shower head to the taps, plus the fact it’s one bathroom between about 6 rooms of 5-8 people each. If you book here get a private room or don’t bother tbf.

Great energy. I've been here 3x in the last 10 years. Some potential issues are the bathrooms have not been remodeled and needs deep cleaning due to molds. Paper thin walls you can here slightest noise from your bed and thirdly, i came home with bites from bed bugs. But i'd still come out here when going to the island solo. I like the convenience of the place and is truly a hostel. The place comes alive with their resident dj and they can plan trips with the the rest.

An unbelievable stay at Frendz! The team were so welcoming, particularly Jimmy, and made sure everyone was socialising and involved. Very fun boat trip and ATV tour. Good wifi and food. Pasta night is a great night! Everyone staying at the same time as me has made friends for life, and memories we'll never forget. I'll be back for sure.

Stayed at Frendz for 4 nights.
AC dorm.

Super Friendly staff
Nice common area. Pool table. Restaurant and bar serve fast and good food.
Bit pricy, but it’s Boracay so for the area not so expensive
Literally 2 min away from Beach.
Dorm are clean.
Sometimes warm water in the shower.
Nice pool.

I would definitely go back to Frendz

We got a room for 7 people. The beds and comfort rooms are clean, Frendz Hostel and Resort Boracay staffs are very accommodating! Our room was cozy, and the hostel environment was calm and relaxing! Around 2 mins walking time to the main beach and local stores. Best hostel in the Island!

"If with a big group, get a shared dorm together. If not, probably better to have a private room."
