This hostel is under construction at the moment. People work all around the ground floor, in the rooms and close to the pool. Therefore it's quite noisy all day. There is almost no one staying here at the moment. I met 5 other people during my whole stay here and that was everyone that was staying here. Can't recommend staying... More

The area is quiet, I stopped here before going to the Gili islands, just about the same as everyone else who stayed there too! The rooms were basic as one would come to expect from the hostel. It was quite difficult to locate at first as its tucked away in a alleyway with no obvious signage around... The staff were... More

I check in for the night as I had an early flight the next morning. At the airport I saw a bug on my cap, on closer inspection I found about 15 bedbugs on my cap alone. I also found my bags and clothes were completely crawling with bed bugs. Hmmmm not the best situation when your travelling!

I love this hostel! I stayed here for about a month in november/december, and I met so many wonderful people there that I'm still in contact with. The local bar (Linga Longa) is in walking distance. I will definitily visit BP again if I'm ever in Bali.
