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

I arrived on Gili T without a reservation and came across Banana Leaf. They had 2 rooms available, an air con twin bungalow for 250k Rp or a second level fanned room double for 200k. I went with the air con which ended up being quite weak if you're trying to escape the heat during the day but fine to... More

Just left Banana Leaf Bungalow 2, it was a nice hut with aircon even it's very far from the beach. It needs about 10 minutes by walk but actually bicycle would be a great help. Too bad we found a mice at the room but it's ok it could be moved in a minute. I hope they will improve the... More

I stayed at banana leaf a few days ago and had a great time. I was assigned a room at banana leaf 2 (which I didn't know existed) but was able to switch to banana leaf 1 to be closer to the beach. The staff there are very friendly and accommodating. Especially Andre!

The first one is really close to the beach, the rooms are nicer and the staff is way more helpful! I stayed in the second one and most of the time there was nobody we could call for... More

Due to the Balinese New Year a lot of tourist left Bali and headed to Gili as a result there were limited room options. Once we were settled in the room we noticed a strong smell of insecticide and we came to find out that the previous customers found a cockroach, they sprayed and then a whole bunch more cockroaches...
