Thanks Friendz for an wonderful time at Boracay! Nice staff, cool common area, just some meters from the beach between Stations 1 and 2. The right place to have in a walking distance good restaurants, popular bars, d'Mall etc. I was traveling alone so was very important for me the care they have with their guests, they have security on The entrance door all night long. The wi-fi is ok In the rooms And common area. The room was very clean during the two days.

Frendz resort is a nice hostel, located 1-2 min from the beach. Despite the fact that the wifi could work better, frendz greatly provides beach beds, discounts and towels. It actually is good that the room is fan-cooled instead of airconditioned (you will get sick). Furthermore you have to bring your own lock for your locker in the room. Overall frendz hostel provides you an excellent stay for this price.

Great hostel to meet people and with a great location, just two minutes walk from the beach. The rooms don't have aircon, only fans. And there is also some sand around, but it is impossible to avoid that been so near to the beach and people going to beach all the time. Also there are chairs available for guests on the beach, which is pretty good.

The assistant manager Jony is professional, friendly and helpful without adding any personal comments. She does her job perfectly. She should be the manager of the hostel!

Pro's - staff are nice and free pasta night is fun & good location Cons - At the moment the hostel is pretty much a construction site & very noisy from 7:30am onwards.. The bar area is closed so the only communal space is a tiny cafe next door where people don't really hang out unless it's a free pasta night. The rooms were hot and dingy and bathroom dirty. I extended here because I was too hungover to leave most mornings but there are much better options available..

Our renovated bar/common area will open again Dec. 9th. Would be great if you give us another chance with the new set up. Happy Travels!

The staff are really helpful and I met a lot of really great people! The downside is the security and the amount of construction currently going on. Like 7 am until 7pm of a generator, hammering, etc... I would definitely stay here again though.

I have been to more than 11 countries and by far this is one of the best Hostels i've stayed in. 2min walk from Playa Blanca, the staff were very helpful. Thank you so much Frendz :) es de los mejores hostales del mundo!!

I spent a bit less than a week at the Frendz Resort. The staff is really friendly and welcomed me with a welcoming drink at the bar. The place is a short walk from the white beach (a really nice spot between Station 1 and 2). The atmosphere at this place is magical. I was travelling solo, but instantly found like-minded people to hang around with. I had incredibly much fun during this week and I can wholeheartedly say this was one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. Want to go back!

The atmosphere created at Frendz is its biggest quality. The guests are open and friendly and the staff are welcoming and just want everyone to have an enjoyable experience. We also enjoyed the partnership Frendz had with the beach restaurant Globys. While it isn't the cheapest place to eat or drink on the beach, it was convinient to be able to charge the room. And the staff at Globys was attentive to the beach area and kept close watch over it. Felt save leaving belongings while swimming.

Frendz hostel is one of the best hostels I have stayed at in South East Asia. All of the staff are really friendly, helpful and remember you by name when they see you. There are many different activities and events that you can sign up for right at the hostel. Every few nights they have free pasta and live music, which is awesome. Its a great place to meet other travellers while you are staying there. You should also try the Swedish breakfast. Best way to start every day : )

Seriously, good everything. Just no air conditioning... So wear bug spray before you sleep! Buy water from budget mart- much much cheaper. And take the "southwest" airport transfer if ur coming from kalibo airport-- it takes u straight to the hostel for 500 pesos. Covers bus, ferry, and jeepney. Its also what the locals do.
