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.

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

Stayed there 1 night. Very friendly staff though did not like the tiny rooms. Guests did not have enough space for the bags. Location is alright, close to the center. Rooms with no windows and there is no hot water.

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 2 nights in a shared dorm and it was very nice. The dorms have lockers and it is very close to the beach and the main street of Sanur. Very chilling atmosphere and friendly people.

Yeah, this hostel is in a quiet part of town, don't get me wrong you do have a bar nearby with live music you can get to, but that is about it. Anyhow, close to the beach, 15min walk, 2min walk to a really cheap place with local food, you can easily live of 6 dollars a day (breakfast, lunch,... More

Stayed for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. Easy to meet people and only a short walk to the beach. Sometimes it was a bit noisy as a few of the dorm rooms are joined but that's standard when in hostels. Would definitely recommend this place.

Great place to meet new people. The owner, Mia is very friendly and will help you book tours and get a good price. Dorms are cleaned everyday. There's a kitchen with everything you need to cook. Tea and coffee are included. You can watch movies from the pool area. There are a lot of restaurants around and it's a 5... More
