You leave the hostel door and you step on the sand of famous White Beach. Two minutes are enough from the bed to the sea. The locations is just superb - totaly true. Its in the middle of the life - directly at the beach and close to D-Mall.

  Everthing is arround: beach, bars, restaurants The pretty new hostel even has a neraly 100% rating on Agoda, Hostelworld and Booking. So far so good.


But as nothing live is perfect - there are also csome negative points: Having such an cheap spot diretly at the beach is amazing. But as land/rent prices are expensive in scuh a location a budget place must be very effecient and save on room. The dorms are really packed and common areas are pretty small: Positiv: Even if the dorm has 20 beds it does not fee to packed and everyone has its personal locker under the bed. Everyroom has two toilets and two showers, so that there are aso now ating times in the morning. But - and thats a big disatvantage: They have no hot water. Only cold showers.

Every bed i equiped with with a own socket (European Style). They have pretty strict rules, like big light out at 11 PM. But that is not a problem. I personaly was a ittle bothered that there was some light all night fom the bathroom area to guide people in the room. Positive. No one had to switch on and off the main light.

The super central location at the ebach also means that some music will be in the room until earl morning. Not so loud that you can ´t sleep - but you here that you are in the middle of the life.

The stuff, specially the reception-girl where really helpfull. They can help you to get cheap boat "Island-Hopping-Tours" for just 600 PHP (12€) where you pay outside in hotels 1000 PHP for the same.

They do have a really nice roof topp where you can sit in the sun and watch the beach and the ocean or the nightlife in the evenings. A pretty cool place.

The WiFi is working - but its not strong and stable like you wish. In the evening when most people are in the hostel its really slow and smetimes shut down complete.

If you are aware of all this you can make a good decision: If you like beach & party and also wanna go out at night and enjoy famous White Beach nightlife: Then this your place.

if you wanna relax and have a little bit of space to hang out and meet other travellers and like it more quiet: Then you might feel better in the Boracay Backpackers or the MNL Hostel.

But its defnetly a good and recomandable place in Boracay - specially when you book more then one night and might get a discounted rate at Agoda for just 7€/night.

Booking advice: IF you do collect frequent flyer mles - via Agoda yu can collect British Airways/iberia Avios, Air Berlin Top-Bonus, Delta Skymiles, United Milage Plus, Singapore KrisFlyer and many more - even fo staying in a budget hostel.
