Simple, spotlessly clean and very affordable; it is conveniently located in the centre of the island, about 3 minutes walk from the White Beach next to the E-Mall. Free wi-fi access is now available. It is a small, friendly, family run hostel with a range of room sizes (from single up to 5 pax), with trustworthy, helpful owners. The lush tropical vegetation provides a shady atmosphere.

All standard cottages are fan cooled and include a private balcony with hammock, private bathroom with toilet, cold shower and washbasin. Deluxe Cottages are air conditioned, but there is no TV or hot shower. No stand-by generator.

There are also some basic budget rooms designed for backpackers with shared bathroom and balcony. All rooms are kept immaculately clean. Budget rooms have shared bathroom and balcony.

A central, common dining area provides a space for guests to get together and compare experiences. Coffee, tea and mineral water are on sale.

You pay your own terminal fee and boat/tricycle fares and send your expected time of arrival in advance. Check-in time is 12 noon-2pm and check-out is before 12 noon; if you plan to arrive early or leave late please contact the hostel beforehand.

    Great value for money. Owners are lovely lovely people. A much better standard of hostel than the rest of Philippines. Right next to the beach and parades of shops, easy to get to on a tricycle from the port. Will definitely stay again if I return to Borocay, thanks guys!
