The staff is super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They make their guests feel welcome and important and are always there for them. The location is right behind a souvenir marketplace, about 2 or 3 minutes from White Beach. And although you are not far from the action and the main road, the place is quiet at night and you can sleep. This is a clean no-frills kind of place and it does the job, no problem. If you are looking for simple and affordable accomodation, this is the place to go!

pearlie who works there is nice. Clean place. Negatives: costs money to borrow a book to read and rather expensive to borrow and use the basic kitchen set up. Balcony area with hammock gets locked at 9 which is disappointing.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and well kept. A short walk from the beach but a great value for the cost.

Good value for the money. WiFi is poor and tough to dry towels because sun doesn't shine down into cottages. Staff was ok, they didnt like that i was only staying for a couple nights. Saw them talking harshly to other customers. Would not stay here again.

We love the hospitality provided by the staff, they 're very much friendly and helpful along our stay there. the private room provided is good enough and reasonable as to the price given, as it is near to the beach and also the jetty. So it takes less than 10 min to any of those places. I just wish the wifi connection would be excellent that I dont 've to hangout by the pantry, especially when I 'm to tired and feel like to lay on my bed instead of sitting at the pantry just to online.

We were very happy with this accommodation. The guest house is located in Station 3, a 5-minute-walk from the White Beach. The room was pretty basic with cold shower and aircon, but it was clean. We liked our private balcony with a little hammock. The staff was helpful and friendly too. This wasn't a "wow experience" but a good accommodation. Would recommend the place to a backpacker, who is looking for a nice place to stay for reasonable price.

I had a great time in Boracay and Trafalgar was a big part of it. The staff is amazingly friendly. The hammocks on the porch are super comfortable. The common area is a great place to meet people. The rooms are big, comfortable, and clean, especially by Philippines standards. The shower was pretty nice. And the walk to the beach is super quick. Great place. Thanks Joel and Pearly!
