The private double room was clean but sparse, which sums up the hostel as a whole. Facilities are limited, but the food is okay amd the staff are very friendly and helpful. The location isn't great as it's down a narrow gang (alley) which is difficult to get down in a car. Probably a better option if you're staying with... More

Hey there, I just came here from travelling in Australia and this is so far the best place I've stayed at for less money than I paid in OZ. I can def recommend this place.

The pictures on the Internet do make this place seem bigger than it actually is. The pool and rooftop are really nice and so is the cafe. The staff are lovely and willing to help with anything and give their advice. Our shower in our private room was okay... The shared showers were a much nicer quality. On our last... More

Hi, Thx for the feedback. Sorry to hear about the problem on your last night. I can appreciate your thoughts but just to reassure you, that there was no chance of a "fire" or "danger" as this was a pilot light malfunction that ignites the gas.It has a safety valve installed which prevents it spreading. In saying that, our staff... More

When I walked into the Island Hotel, I thought to myself: "hats off to the photographer". I figured the pictures were either old, or his/her pictures did a great job at fooling the common eye. Honestly, the place looks a bit run-down. The thing I liked most was the bed. It was a comfortable matress. The room itself, the facilities... More

Hi, Thank you for the feedback. We are always looking to improve. As for the pictures, Trip Advisor splits it into 2 parts. Professional (us) and the traveller. The majority of the photos are taken by our guests and I'm confidant, give a good reflection of our hostel. We are one of the few hostels/hotels in Bali which have regular... More

Spacious and clean dorms. They make your bed everyday, not sure if they changed the sheets, but they were very clean. The beds have curtains around them, personal reading lights and outlets. Breakfast was average, but they make a hell of a pizza for a decent price. The set up in the common area outside is great too. I met... More

We were excited to stay at this hotel due to the positive reviews, but it did not even meet our basic expectations. The hotel is hard to find as it is hidden away in an alley, the building is old and not kept up, the room was tiny with the most basic of amenities. We had the deluxe room and... More

Hi, Firstly we appreciate you spending time to write a review. The reviews for this hostel is based on what guests experienced during their stay. This is out of our hands and in no ways "misleading" as we can't tell a guest what to write. As you can see the majority of responses are overwhelmingly favorable and at around AUD$18... More
