Welcome to the newest, funkiest hostel in Padang Bai, in the heart of the village we are situated right on the beach front. You can hang out with other travelers in our social area while you watch the ships roll in. Situated just 5min away from the fast boat pier and slow ferry harbour to Lombok and the Gili's we are ideally situated for people wishing to get those early morning boats after a free breakfast that starts at 07:30. Or stay and enjoy the renowned diving, snorkeling and culture of this beautiful area. We don't have a bar in the hostel but on the first floor we have an "honesty fridge" where you can serve yourself a beer, fizzy drinks and water, and add it on to your own bill. Our staff can help you out with information about tours around Bali, trekking, rafting, boat tickets, snorkeling and recommend really good Padi and SSI certified Dive Schools in the area. Padang Bai is surrounded by luscious green hills and nature, and you can sunbathe and swim at White Sand Beach (Bias Tugel) and Blue Lagoon, it's the perfect place to relax. Fat barracuda has a spacious 10 person mixed dorm, beautiful en-suite bathroom, with strong pressure, hot water rainforest shower and separate toilet. There is a cozy lounge area, with comfy beanbags and free WIFI throughout the building. On the first floor there is 1 Private double room with fan, en-suite bathroom with strong pressure hot water shower, and great sea view balcony. We provide clean sheets, fresh towels, spacious lockers in the dorm and serve yummy breakfast.
