Backpacking is an adventure. You meet different kind of people from all walks of life. You have the chance to know and understand their culture and all.
When I went to Boracay, Philippines this year. I decided to book a hostel, for a change. And there are a lot to choose from.
However, after reading some of the reviews from different kind of Hostels in Boracay. I choose MNL beach hostel Boracay. One reason is that the room is air-condition. Because, other bed and breakfast hostels only have fan rooms. And I cannot live with that (not that I am very picky, I just need some cool place to standby when the outside world is at 25 degrees… you know what I mean)
MNL Boracay Beach Hostel is located just a 15-minute drive from Boracay Jetty Port, which is a 20-minute boat ride from Caticlan Jetty Port. It offers free Wi-Fi and 24-hour front desk service.
The rooms of MNL Boracay Beach Hostel has air condition, concrete flooring, and a wardrobe or a locker. There is a shared toilet and a shared bathroom. Some rooms also include an en-suite bathroom and balcony.
The hostel has a shared kitchen. The stay include continental breakfast. Toast and bananas are over flowing (no kidding).
They also have a bar. A Roof top where you can sit around and mingle with other travelers. Billiard table and a hammock.
There are also restaurants only a 10-minute walk away, offering local and Chinese cuisine.D’Mall is a 10-minute walk from the hostel. Kalibo International Airport is a 2-hour drive away.
Since It’s my first time staying on a Hostel. I can say that I enjoyed my stay. Because I met new friends and made new memories. I’ll definitely recommend and go back to this hostel.
Note: Book 1 month in advance during peak season (specially LA Boracay. They are normally fully book that time)
