With great low rates and a perfect location the Mad Monkey is one of the best hostels in Boracay for those that are young, young at heart, or young in the liver 😉 With low rates for our awesome dorms and private rooms, great design, funky artwork, and the Mad Monkey commitment to excellent customer service and friendliness it’s no wonder we receive so many rave reviews on TripAdvisor Boracay pages, Hostel World Boracay listings, and Google.

Each dorm bed at Mad Monkey comes with your own box locker for your gear, a dedicated power outlet for all of your gadgets, and a personal fan and reading light.

Boracay Hostel Events & Activities

We want our guests at Mad Monkey to have the best experience possible during their stay. We offer nightly party events in the hostel for your entertainment and to help you meet new people. We also offer a huge selection of tours and activities that can be booked directly in the hostel.

If you are coming to enjoy Boracay kitesurfing you will be pleased to know that we offer lots of rental options, lessons, and experience packages at Boracay kite resorts just down the road from our hostel. We provide free kite storage for your gear if you’re a pro and you’re coming fully prepared! We are also able to help you book Boracay scuba diving courses, boat tours, undersea ‘helmet diving’ walks, and a huge variety of Boracay tours and activities that are perfect for backpackers.
You can find just some of the tours listed in our Boracay guide or this article on “35 Things To Do In Boracay“. Mad Monkey also runs a legendary Boracay Booze Cruise twice a week. In this all-inclusive, all-day tour you’ll go cliff jumping, go snorkeling, and visit a private beach to watch the sun go down. Oh, and there are unlimited drinks on the boats and at every activity! The tour sells out every time we run it, so it’s an ace way to meet other backpackers in Boracay and experience everything the island has to offer in one go!

How Your Stay at Mad Monkey is Socially Responsible

Mad Monkey is a socially responsible business founded on the principles of giving back and contributing to the community. One of the most effective ways that we do this is to ensure we look after our Mad Monkey team.  All of our team members at Mad Monkey Boracay are paid well and receive benefits far in excess of the local minimum requirements. We have developed a supportive, family-like atmosphere within our team. Our team members know that we are invested in their progress and job satisfaction, and they benefit from continuous training and education.

We are also active in the local community and have currently worked to raise donations for school equipment for the local Boracay school near our hostel. We are currently developing our Corporate Social Responsibility program for the Philippines. This new endeavor will allow us to make an even greater positive impact in Boracay. We’ll be supporting more local initiatives, as well as national programs that are making a difference for the most disadvantaged communities in the Philippines.
