This is a really homely hostel with an amazing vibe. The lady who runs it pulls out all the stops to make sure you have a great stay! She also helps with you onward journey. The hostel is clean and has a nice small pool to cool down after trips out. There is free fast WiFi and the cheapest food... More

I really liked this hostel. Normally I was planning to stay only for two days but in the end I ended up staying for 8 days. Easy transfer from airport and easy to get to all other places in bali. The people were really nice!

This was my first stop in Indonesia and it was a nice hostel to start in. Cheap and very friendly, good communal area and social vibe. Nice little pool too. Unfortunately Sanur is more of a family and couples place rather than a backpacker place. But this turned out good as a big group of us decided to go over... More

The staff is friendly and helpful with arranging different activities. The room was not quite what I was expecting (doors did not lock, lockers were in bad condition, communal bathrooms outside of the rooms) but served its purpose. A bit of a walk from the beach but an enjoyable space to relax. Don't rely on the wifi.

This is a backpackers haven. Cheap price, loads of Bintang and a pool! Rooms are fan or aircond, wifi is relatively ok for simple browsing. Nearby walk to stalls for food or further down towards the beach in 5mins. Nearby restaurants and cafe bars makes dinner interesting. Its not a very happening place but lively enough to enjoy. This place... More

A very trendy and homely hostel in a nice spot in Sanur. Not quite at the centre of the action, but it shows. This hostel attracts a good range of travellers keen for something a little out of the bogan rampage of Kuta. They have hot showers, a good kitchen and access to a huge range of transfers and activities

I've been there for a week a I keep a good memory. Neverless, the localisation is bad cuz really far from the beach. The beach is totally dirty. Basically there is nothing to do in sanur. I booked my boat ticket to Gili island by the hostel and it was a good price.

As much as I liked this hostel for its movie room and the open plan layout the hostel (and Sanur itself) has a serious problem with rats. The staff keep the place fairly clean but I think the area has a big problem. On the first morning a rat nearly ran over my foot in the eating area and we... More
