What I loved about this place is that it looked just like the pictures online, and if anything, was better than I had expected. I was warmly welcomed by Wayan and the girls that work at the Inn. Wayan is what really made my stay. I have met a lot of great people in Bali, but she has this relaxed... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our stay in Padang Bai, and only left because it became fully booked. Liam, Wayan and all the girls who work for Zen Inn made it a fantastic place to stay. They sorted everything for us including laundry, purchasing a local sim card, and arranging a trip to go white water rafting. Liam... More

Stayed for one night on the way to Gili Air. Plane arrived very late but staff stayed very kindly up until midnight for us which was very much appreciated. Right next to the harbour, perfect for catching the ferry but naturally a little noisy. Very clean, organised and friendly, would have liked to stay longer here!

My boyfriend and I have now stayed at the Zen Inn twice since being in Indonesia. Liam and Wayan go above and beyond to make this a welcoming place. This is a great value for your money as it is the only place we have stayed that has both hot water and water pressure. There is also a cold outdoor... More

One of the best hostels we stayed in for the 3 months we were travelling! I have never felt so welcome, such friendly staff and management! I was feeling unwell one night, the staff were so kind and helpful. Beautiful clean rooms and brilliant location, definitely worth a stay before heading to the Gili Islands! Highly recommend!

We booked to stay in advance due to the low price and got much more than we thought we would! The Inn had really friendly staff who helped us with anything we needed, one day Wayan organised a scooter for us to explore the nearby volcano and on arrival the owner Liam welcomed us with beers and great conversation.

We got to Padangbai without anything booked, and as we realized that we had missed the ferry and had to find an accommodation we already had been overwhelmed by so many pushy people trying to sell us boat tickets and accommodation. So we were ever so happy to just walk down the road and find the Zen Inn! Cheaper and... More

For the price, it's not bad at all - bright and clean with hot water and air con, (not many, if any, other budget options with air con here), located very close to the Perama bus stop and ferry terminal, and a short walk to the fast boat terminal. If the ferries were hooting and trucks rumbling all night, I... More

We had lunch at this place with a group of friends. Even though the food was okay, we are really not happy the way we were treated. When we payed the bill, one of the staff took the money back to count it. She came back and told us we didn't give her enough money to cover the bill. When... More

Thank you for your feedback on the service you received at the Zen Inn. I cannot apologise enough for the negative experience that you had here. To be honest I am very surprised that a balinese girl would behave in such a manner to a guest. However, last year, when the incident occurred, we did have a member of staff... More
