Stayed here two nights, the beds were OK, the pool was nice, and the TV area was nice. If you needed anything however, good luck. When looking for advice about transport booking, we didn't find Mia anywhere. She's hardly ever on the office and it makes it difficult to get things done. When we were leaving we needed to get...

Nice clean hostel. It had a nice atmosphere and lots of people staying there. I think the price was a bit expensive for what you get, (6 bed dorm) for 100,000. I found it a little out the way and difficult to find. Great place to stay to meet people though, with free tea and coffee and nice staff

This hostel is really nice, especially compared to others in SE Asia. There are lots of places to sit and chill, and socialise. The kitchen is big, and its nice to be able to make your own food. The pool is clean and perfect for having a refreshing dip. There is a big flat screen TV connected to a hard... More

Big Pineapple was our first stop in Indonesia and we were welcomed like family from the minute we arrived. My boyfriend and I stayed here for about 8 days after only planning on 4, we met a great group of people and ended up finding a lot to do. Sanur is a quiet town but a great place to start... More

I have such nice memories of my time in Sanur at Big Pineapple! The owner Mia is an incredibly amazing and friendly lady and she is very helpful with whatever you need! The place is great or socializing if you are traveling by yourself as it is mainly for solo backpackers and travelers from all over the world! What really... More

I stayed here for one night on my way through Sanur, but I wish I could've stayed longer! I arrived late at night and the people were so helpful and friendly. Location is ok, walking distance to amenities, shops and cafes, however would be advantageous if you had a bike. The rooms were very clean, air-conditioned and comfortable beds. There... More

During our travel trough Bali we came across this lovely place. Its definitely one of the best backpackers I 've been so far. The owner 'Mia' is friendly and likes to help you out wherever she can. The hostel itself is very clean and kept tidy by a group of Balinese women who clean every single morning. Also a very... More

The atmosphere in the hostel is so nice. There is a pool in the middle, you have the opportunity to watch a lot of movies and there is a big kitchen and lots of space to hang around with the other guys from the hostel. Mia, the owner, is living in the hostel, too. She is so nice and always... More

What a fun hostel! Great for meeting fellow travellers, very social place with big flat screen tv with a hard drive crammed with movies, swimming pool, big kitchen table and kitchen to make food. Asia needs more hostels like this! I would recommend it to solo travellers or anyone who wants to make new friends.
