Clean, affordable and good location!”

It’s my first time booking at Boracay Backpackers and it was a good experience. The staff were nice, the room and the bathroom is clean, and good location at Station 1, like a minute walk and you’re already at the beach. If you’re in Boracay for budget-kind-of-trip and you need a place for sleeping since most of the time you are just outside, then I highly recommend this one. The bedroom is spacious, provided towels, tissue and soaps. The bathroom is clean and big as well with heater available. Will def book this one again. Value for money!

Christmas away from Home”

We decided to celebrate my son's 3rd birthday and Christmas in Boracay. I am so happy with our stay at Backpacker's. The room is affordable yet clean and just perfect for the 3 of us. The bathroom is spacious and very clean too. Wifi is strong, I just hope there's a child friendly channel on their cable TV. It is just a few minutes away from the beach with a nearby convinience store. The staff were friendly and their SINIGANG is a must try.

Nagbook kami sa hannah then lumipat kami here. Super pleasant nang location parang fresh unlike dun sa isa na medyo madilim. Yun pinakanagustuhan ko tapos sa gabi may DJ at mura nang drinks nila sarap mag party. 1-2 minutes lakad nasa beach ka na, perfect sa mga groups/ couples/ solo travellers. Super sulit for its price talaga. If babalik ako uli nang boracay I will choose this hostel again!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely amazing!!!”

Boracay Backpackers is not just a hostel, it truly becomes home - all thanks to its amazing staff. Three of us stayed there 6 nights starting from the NYE, did not want to leave 😭 Everyone here is just wonderful. We would definitely love to go back one day. Communal area outside is so cool - sofas to chill and a pool table. Food is really delicious, especially mango pancakes! 🤤 We also did their booze cruise which was so much fun! The location is perfect!! White Beach is a minute-walk, Bulabog beach is 10 min away on foot. Restaurants, clubs, Mad Monkey and Frendz with their crazy parties are all nearby, but when you come back, Backpackers truly let you restore your energy levels in a friendly chilled environment 😇 A huge thank you and greetings to everyone at Boracay Backpackers 💋 Elena, Konrad, Zoltan From 🇬🇧 with ❤️

The rooms were not just only clean but also organized. The staff was friendly and they have really hospitable to answer our questions.
