UPDATED: FEBRUARY, 2017. Cheap and Affordable Rooms in Boracay Station 2. While I was looking in the internet for a cheap room to stay in Boracay that would cost around P1,000-P1,500 (UPDATE: As of January 2017, rate per room is Php1,500 to Php2,500 depending on the season) , I chanced upon Tan’s Guesthouse located in boat station 2. I read a lot of very positive feedback from its’ previous guests online so I put it on the top of my list of budget accomodation to check out when I get there.
Upon arrival at Boracay port, we were approached by a local lady asking us if we had already reserved a room to stay in the island. Normally, I would say yes, just so agents would stop bothering us and leave us alone immediately. But the lady seemed very nice and she mentioned that she was just there to help tourists to find a place to stay at no extra charge. So I told her, we planned to stay at Station 2 and we wanted to check out the rooms at Tan’s Guesthouse. She offered to take us there. Since I only have a few information on finding the guesthouse, I thought it would be best to have someone who knows the way to accompany us. This would save us time.
We rode a tricycle and stopped at the D’Mall. From there, we walked all the way to the beach path and then turned left. We continued to walk passing by Mango Ray Cottages on the left, and then just after E. Pascual Store, and right before 928 Cafe and Grill, we turned left again and walked into an alley where a cluster of budget accomodations are located. Once you get here, you would have no problem looking for a room to stay. Chances are, since there are many to choose from, you would surely find one that would best suit your personal needs and preferences. At the far end of the alley is Tan’s Guesthouse. We would have wanted to stay at Tan’s, but since I was looking for a room with WIFI access, I opted to stay at Erico’s House instead. We were told, for reason I’m not so sure of, that the room that was available for us at Tan’s Guesthouse had no access to their WIFI.
Here’s a rough map I made to help you find the place. The guesthouses are located about 1-3 minutes walk from the beach and is also close to many bars and resturant.
Please note that I am not affiliated with any of these guesthouses. For your inquiries, reservation, issues and concerns, please refer to the contact numbers below:

Unfortunately, I could not recommend Eriko’s anymore due to a not pleasant stay last January 2017. The room that was given to us looked ok at first but we were horrified when we found out the next day that our bags got wet due to a water leakage coming from a defective aircon which was located just above the table where we put our bags. ( It was Ok the entire day, but it rained that night so that probably caused the leakage) We became really worried when my sister found out that her authentic Gucci bag was soaked with water. We immediately went down and asked for an electric fan so we could dry it up to prevent water marks. The staff simply provided us with an electric fan and turned her back without showing any concern. When we asked for a blower, the staff simply said none, and even smiled, giving us the impression that we are overreacting. We became extremely disappointed for the lack of concern so we asked to talk to the manager. The staff said that the manager, who is also the owner, wasn’t around, and that she was by that time in Manila. We asked if we could talk to her over the phone. The staff called the owner, and after a few minutes she told us that the owner/manager did not want to talk to us. She even told us that if we talked to the manager, we might just end up fighting over the phone. We said, we simply wanted to give feedback, but the staff said, the owner/manager really didn’t want to talk to us. They even suggested we just go to the barangay hall to file a complaint. We then asked for a refund for the two remaining nights of our stay, and left Eriko’s as soon as we found another place to stay. In all fairness, most of Eriko’s rooms are OK for the price. Unfortunately for us, we were given a room with a defective aircon. However, based on what I’ve experienced, your stay can only be good just as as long as you wouldn’t have any similar unfortunate experience. The staff are incompetent, and the owner/manager seems to be a snob and simply wouldn’t care of any untoward incidents that may happen to the guests. No wonder, the staff seems to have a similar attitude. We filed an incident report at the DOT and found out that they are not DOT certified.

Nice, Boracay series na, ( grabe level up ka na talaga, dati naka-excel ang expenses breakdown ngayon meron pang map 🙂
Yup, Kailangan matapos ang series bago yung trip to Davao next month. Yoko, magka-backlog. Tatamarin ako pag ganun. Natawa at natuwa naman ako sa level up :-). Thanks Claire!
very informative! 🙂 I’ll be going on September so this one is really helpful. We got our tickets in Zest air at a very steal price too.
that’s good to know, grace 🙂 have fun in boracay!
hi senyor! i agree with claire level up kn nga kc from excel map n ngaun haha. i was in bora jul 19. dami ko pa backlog so d p ako makapag-post ng bora trip. was lucky coz right after our stay saka my dumating n bagyo. so far boracay is my favorite in all places i’ve explored. *wink* i changed my domain by the way. 🙂
naku, kakaalis ko lang nung pagdating mo. muntik na tayong magkita hehehe. swerte nga talaga at walang bagyo nung pumunta tayo. level up ka na ah. dotcom ka na din. sige, palitan ko yung domain dito sa bloglist ko 🙂
Hi senyor. It’s me again! 🙂 about your room accommodation? How was it?
would you be so kind enough to give more details about it? ang dami kasi option so I’m just getting feedback so I can narrow down my options. hehe
thank you in advance!
free wifi, clean room with ac, reasonable price, close to the beach, it has everything i needed. the only thing that may turn you off is the presence of a few mosquitos inside the room. thanks for visiting, grace 🙂
thanks for the info. ok na ang mosquito repellent lotion! haha. for 2 nights stay senyor sa mga budget traveler 5k is enough or max na nga yun siguro?
i need a clean room and cold aircon with wifi but only budgeted, for 7 pax.. and if possible land/sea transfer arrangement also coming from kalibo, July 20-22, 2012 is the date of arrival, 3 days 2 nights
Great map! We stayed at a hotel in our previous Boracay trip pero parang hindi nasulit coz we were out most of the time. Next time it seems better to stay in one of those places 😀
wow such a helpful post! thank you so much and more power to your blog!
James, I’m sorry I don’t have those information either. Maja’s place, which is just beside Eriko’s where we stayed, looked nice though and it’s just 2-3 minutes away from the beach. It is located at station 2.
Bro, you just metioned na you stayed on Maja’s place. do you still remember the rates? we’re planning to go there this coming may. magkano dun, 2 lang naman kami.
DK, we stayed at Eriko’s, not at Maja’s place. Unfortunately, I still don’t have their number.
Thanks for these wonderful blog site. I am looking for a great and cheap accommodation for two on my next summer vacation in the Philippines. Your site is a great help to choose our destination. (Either Coron or Bora) 🙂

Any advise please? thanks in advance sir!
We’re looking for a clean place to stay on the first three nights, not too far from the beach front. just enough to have a safe goodnight sleep and a good shower.

Hi Senyor Lakwatsero, Thanks so much for providing vacation-lovers like us with these very helpful information.. I’ve in imbroglio for the past days searching for the contact number of Jejjsellends where we stayed few years ago in Boracay until I found your blog. But sad to say that I cannot contact them with this number you gave, nevertheless, I still have other options for cheap hotels.. Namili na lang kami ng husband ko sa mga listahan mo.. You are indeed an angel! God bless!!!
Senyor Lakwatsero, meron po ba good for 8 person sa station 2? ung mura lang. many thanks!
Thanks for the info Senyor! Yung Tans GH din ung nababasa ko from other blogs, ok lang sa akin ung kahit walang wifi since di naman kami magdadala ng any gadgets on our trip, mahirap na.
Pero I’ve seen Eriko’s site rin, ok narin naman pala eh. 🙂 Basta either sa dalawa, ang importante may matutulugan.
And oh, thanks for the map ahh! heheehe.
Hi Sashi we’ve stayed at Tan’s guest house this first week of January 2013, Senyor Lakwatsero’s contact information really helped a lot. They offered us welcome drinks (mango shake)for free.. It was a fun experience.
By the way may wifi na pala ang Tan’s. For info.
that’s great…sa room ba pwede maka connect or sa rooftop pa?
at wow may welcome drinks na pala sila ngayon ah! nako dyan nalang ako sa Tans this April!! kasama ko family ko. naka inquire na ako sa kanila eh, they quoted me 3k per night. hihihi! 🙂 Yun lang di pa ako nakakapag paid ng half kasi wala pa akong makitang airfare seat sale eh. gusto ko kasi makatipid ako lalo na’t treat ko ang aking family. pero atleast 10k budget for airfare ok na…pero much better kung less pa diba! 🙂 thanks for the info Fernique!
btw, ano nga paa yung nababasa ko sa iba na Tans namaste? yung extension daw ng Tans? yun ata yung building na mas maganda yung rooms eh based sa mga nakikita ko online.
@Andre may good for 10 ata ang Tans GH with kitchen na. Actually may small resto sila na mura ang mga bilihin P85 inclusive of rice, viand and ice tea na…
Good day Senyor Lakwatsero..salamat po sa mga info na binigay nyo…sumasakit na kasi ang ulo ko kung paano makakakita ng murang airlines papuntang boracay para sa kasal ng dear friend ko at di ko rin lam gagawin dahil I’ve never been there before..mabuti nalang at may mga tips,map and info narin para sa pagpunta at mga lugar na pwede akong magstay dun ng mura lang..atleast di na magmumukhang naliligaw ang mga new comers dun na tulad ko na wala talagang ka ide-idea sa lugar na pupuntahan :)more power at sana marami pang matulungan ang site na ito..
