When traveling to Boracay, the biggest chunk of budget goes to accommodation and activity expenses. If your budget is limited and it doesn't allow you to stay in a hotel or a resort, why not consider staying in a hostel? It's one of the best options to save on travel expenses and also a great way to meet other travelers. More to that, the best part of staying in a hostel on Boracay is that the prices of rooms are affordable and perfect for solo and budget travelers.
During our recent Boracay trip, we stayed in one of the best hostels on Boracay island. Joining the ranks of the recent rise of boutique hostels on Boracay Island, Second Wind Bed, Bunk and Breakfast (Check rates online) is a great option if you're looking for a place to stay that will assure you of clean, secured, decent accommodation and good value for money.
Being located along Bulabog Road, Second Wind Bed, Bunk and Breakfast isn't hard to find as it is just a 2-minute walk from the main road or a 5-minutes walk from D'mall. Aside from that, it is also just a short 5-10 minute walk to both the White Beach Station 2 and the kite boarding beach of Bulabog. So, if you want to bask on the sand of the famous Boracay White Beach or to the quieter Bulabog Beach, staying at Second Wind BBB is the best option as it is near the 2 of the most popular beaches on the island.

Upon arrival at the Second Wind BBB, we were warmly welcomed by the hostel staff and assisted us with checking-in. Since we already have a reservation, checking-in was fast and efficient. It only took us about 5 minutes and we were given our room key and was ushered to our room at the 2nd floor.
Twin Private RoomOur room is a twin private room with 2 single beds coupled with hotel quality linens and pillows. The room smells fresh, clean and everything is well-organized. As expected, the room has limited space but they were able to maximize the space that it doesn't feel suffocating.
The beds are comfortable and the room is also equipped with basic amenities such as an en suite toilet and bath, a ceiling fan and air-conditioning unit, mirror, locker, a small work desk and a television set with cable channels. The room provides a little bit of everything and has a very homey ambiance.
As I checked on the toilet and bath, I was impressed! It is quite spacious for a hostel. It is equipped with hot and cold shower, water closet with bidet spray, hair dryer and a sink with a huge mirror. Fresh and clean towels were also provided. Toiletries were not provided, so it would be great if you bring your own.
Other Room AccommodationsAside from the Private Twin Room, another option are the Private Double Room which has the a double bed and the same amenities and facilities of our room and the Mixed Dorm Rooms that can fit up to 8 persons each. We wanted to see the Dorm Rooms but unfortunately, they were occupied, so we were not able to take a photo of it.
In case you're wondering how the Dorm Room looks like, here are some photos taken from their website. It is an 8-bed mixed dorm that has 2 common toilet and bath inside. It also has basic amenities such as air-conditioning unit and individual lockers for the guests.
Common Area and KitchenOur favorite part of the hostel is the common area where most or the guests lounge - to eat, smoke, watch TV, connect to the internet, read books or just to kill some time. The common area also has a kitchen that has a fridge where you could keep your food as well as free flowing tea and coffee. As coffee drinkers, free coffee is a such an awesome welcome for us!
