This was an awesome home away from home. Excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Joel and Pearly and the rest of them there went out of their way to ensure all my questions were answered, and was available for my incredibly late check-in with no complaints. I booked a private room, which had a fan and lots of storage space for a very affordable price. Even though showers were cold, the weather was hot, so it was actually refreshing! Location, balcony, and hammocks were great too!

Trafalgar Cottages were outstanding value,clean and staff so helpful. They were helped organise my island hopping tour for a great price. Position was good as away from the noiser part of Boracay and felt more laid back being closer to the southern end. Overall enjoyed my stay here immensely and would definitely stay here again. Thankyou.

Really great staff. Very flexible with booking and excellent email communication. Basic ensuite bathroom and fan room but very clean and towels provided. Great value for location.

I stayed at Trafalgar with a friend for 4 nights, and we really loved it. The location is great: the cottages are hidden away behind a market, so it's calm and cosy, and yet it's only a few minutes walk to the beautiful White Beach! Also easy to access Resort 2 and it's nightlife (we did it every evening, and generally on foot!). The room was very comfortable, with our own little balcony, and private bathroom.

Brilliant we have been here for about a week. The owners are amazing, very friendly and helpful. The have sorted out our problems (a light not working) very quickly and efficiently. Close to the beach but not noisy. Strongly recommend this place.

He hostel has a homey feel and the staff are nice and helpful. However, the bed linen is has some musty smell. I had to put a tower on the pillow

I HIGHLY recommend it.Not on the beach, but about a 2 minute walk. In between station 2 &3 which was great. It's t by a great inexpensive restaurant Zest and my personal favorite, Sunny Side Cafe. The atmosphere is great. It feels like you're in a jungle and gives you a feel of what Boracay was like prior to all of the tourism. The staff was so friendly. The room was nice enough. No point spending a lot of money on a hotel when you're never there during the day. This was definitely worth it.

Location was great! 5 minute walk to the beach and restaurants and convenience stores all around. Staff was also very helpful and informative. Only downside was the lack of a hot water shower, but you don't really need one if you are out in the sun all day and actually want a cold shower to freshen up. Loved the set-up. Would definitely come here again if I ever am fortunate enough to return.

Great place located centrally, only a few mins walk to the beach. Cheap restaurant only 1 min walk away. Julia couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely to have my own room for a few days! Thank you for your help with everything :)

Very good place to stay, friendly staff ( they explain everything for you about the island, tell you good prices to pay to ride the tryc.). Perfect location, just 3 minutes walking to the main beach! Only the internet don't contribute at all!!

Really nice, small guest house run by a lovely British couple. Rooms are quite basic tho linen and towel are provided and there are also some shelfs and hangers to put your clothes so for 350 pesos I paid for a single room it's amazing value for money. Internet was very slow in the room and kept disconnecting all the time and even tho i closed the window I could hear very well a couple having fun every single evening in the room next to ;-) Owners very super friendly and i felt very safe there.

If you like to cook your own meals, this will be the right place for you, because there is a kitchen in the common area. Sometimes it was to loud there for me, when drunken party people came home during the night..... but in the end very good value for money in trafalgar cottages.

Having just arrived in the Philipines for the first time i was delighted to find this small friendly haven amongst the bustle and hustle of Boracay. Able to get over the jetlag, find out many things from the friendly owners and staff, i was able to break myself in gently to life here. The description is accurate, the feel a bit like a small hamlet. I strongly recommend Trafalgar Cottages for meeting people and for having one's own space. ,,
