Great location, decoration and a really fun atmosphere! I stayed for 2 night with a couple of friends and had a good lovely experience. The staff was especially friendly and accommodating and told us lots of things to do around the island.

The hostel itself is in a good location, with great surrounding restaurants, a 100m from the harbour. The hostel has great decorum, and some of the staff are lovely, especially the chef, and the barman at the pool. The staff at the desk however weren't great. My room wasn't ready on arrival. The rooms were full of Mosquitos, and the...

Stayed here for two nights. The beds were comfortable, showers were alright, and rooms were spacious. There were a few bugs and spiders but that's inevitable. Generally very clean. The breakfasts were very nice! We had bananas pancakes and fruit made for us which was great. Good location in the town. Groovy interior. Ideal for young travellers.

Looking back on this hostel having finished my travels, it was actually pretty average. Rooms weren't clean and whilst the showers were nice and hot, we constantly ran out of toilet paper which wasn't ideal for someone with Bali Belly (even if you use the bum gun). The rooms were huge because they use to sleep 7 but island rules...

We didn't stay in the hotel but we went to the Lava bar everyday. The staff are very friendly, goo price for the drinks and it's on the beach. There are bean bags on the beach, it's a very good place for chill.

Huge rooms but with only 3 beds in each it didn't have that cool, social hostel vibe, and the pool bar was always deserted. Stayed a week while doing my open water dive course on the island as a solo traveller and while it ticked all the required boxes being in a great location on the main road, close to...

There isn't much to complain about with this place, it's pretty basic and nice breakfast - but I wouldn't say it has an amazing vibe. I ended up moving to La Boheme and it was so much more fun! If you're backpacking and looking for a good social then I wouldn't say this is the number one place on Gili....

The place is cool but The room are never cleaned they only change the linen and that's it. Also the bathrooms are disgusting they are never cleaned as well and a lot of toilet paper is stuck into the toilet. The flush doesn't work and there is no hot water as they promise. There is a weird smell. The bed...
