Stayed here a few nights. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and beds were comfy. I stayed in a four bed dorm but really it was a 12 bed dorm because two adjoining rooms were connected to it which wasn't great if you want to sleep at any point during the night. Also the staff lost my booking when I... More

Big pineapple is a communal place with a kitchenette, pool lounging chairs and really comfortable beds. I stayed for only two nights spending 7 hrs each on the comfortable bed otherwise I have not even explored the hostel. The good things are- the ac rooms, hot showers, clean bathrooms, free coffee, tea and water. Safety lockers. Mia is very cheerful... More

Stayed here for one night. Staff were very helpful and wifi was good. The major downside is that this hostel is located down several dark alleys, and you have to cross the highway. Nonetheless for £5 a night it was very reasonably priced.

Stayed here on my last night in Bali after flying back from Flores. Had been recommended by a friend and it was a really good choice as travelling solo so easily found great people to spend my last day with. Good communal areas with kitchen (free water!), pool and TV area with some good films for just chilling. The rooms... More

We stayed here for 6 nights. If you're on a budget, it's a great place to stay in Sanur. The rooms are lovely and spacious, they're also very lighty and airy. They're cleaned daily too which is nice. The hostel itself has such a homely feel. There's a kitchen and fridge provided which is really handy, especially for keeping costs... More

I'd spent several months in Jakarta for work prior to my weekend getaway in Bali, and Big Pineapple was a nice break from the craziness in the capital. I'd advise keeping the instructions on how to get there at hand if you intend to explore more of the island and come back by yourself as it is rather hard to... More

Stayed at Big Pineapple Backpackers over the Good Friday weekend. I think the aircon rooms were a good deal, being only $1 more than the non-aircon ones. Didn't see any rats, mosquitoes or pests while I was there. The furnishings were quite spartan but you get what you pay for.

This hostel felt more like a home. Being able to watch movies while in the pool is a great way to spend a lazy day. The location is quiet but its quite a walk anywhere and you have to cross a super busy street to get to the beach. I had trouble with my Canadian debit card when I got... More
