When we arrived we noticed a few tiny specs of blood on the sheets but didn't really think anything of it. We stayed for 2 nights and woke up the first morning with a few small bites, however we thought this was heat rash. However the second morning we woke up we were covered in bedbug bites on our shoulders,... More

I stayed here with some friends while we were in a backpacking trip through SEA. We stayed in the air-con bungalow and were really happy with it. The air-con worked perfectly, the bed was ok. The shower was something we really liked as it was somewhat "outside". We felt a really incredible vibe in this place and decided to stay... More

So there is three different accommodations for the same name, all far away from each other. Ours was 2, which took us half an hour to find. It's about a 20 minuet walk to the beach area. There is only three rooms in this one. The rooms are good, bathrooms a wet room with a normal toilet and a weak... More

Really friendly and funny group of guys running it, especially Norman, he is awesome!! Helped us out with anything we needed. Really good location to beach, shops etc. Though our room was very dark! And a few mozzies from the open air bathroom that come in through the door gap which could be fixed. The mosque prayer thing is very... More

There is not much left to add to the previous comments. It ticks all of the not so nice boxes. The place is "run" by a group of young, local lads who are eager to be friends with you but that's pretty much where their engagement with the place seems to end. There is no managment - aparently the manager... More

Amazingly disappointed by this awfully run accommodation - this is not by any means a 3star stay. Booked through agoda and paid quite a hefty price for Indonesia and Gili T. When we arrived there were men sitting on the reception desk and hanging around (almost certain that one of them was high). They clearly did not know anything about... More

We booked this hostel through agoda for a price of 38 euro a night. We allready travelled for 3 weeks in indonesia and had a good idea about the hostels and prices. When we came to the hostel it looked terrible. The guy at the counter was stoned as hell and asked for a reservation. He could not find it..... More
