I really enjoyed my stay at Gili Hostel. Not only was it in a great location with only a 2 minute walk from the place where the boat drops you off when you first arrive at Gili T (which is really convenient since walking with a backpack or luggage along the main Gili street is not very convenient since so...

Honestly, if you are looking for a place to have fun and meet great people, this is the place. The balkony lounge, poolbar and the new Lava bar along the street just invites fun, party and likeminded people on the island. I booked for 3 nights but stayed the full week. The personel is joyfull and understanding, definitely coming back... More

When you arrive at Gili Hostel it directly feels like home. We were ten friends, ready to discover the island, meet people and have a great time : this was the perfect place for us. The rooms were clean (no bugs), the food was good (one banana pancake and you're ready for your day) and the staff was super nice.... More

Gili Hostel has made my time in Indonesia. Clean rooms, friendly staff and a fantastic Bar. Definitely worth a visit if you want to meet loads of fellow travelers. Gili Hostel gave me both an insane party and one of the most chilled out times of my life. Thank you. Will definitely be back

Don't bother staying here. They don't know who is coming or going and just give your bed away. I emailed to say we would arrive at 3pm because a girl got thrown off the boat to Gili T by a massive wave so we were saving her. They gave our beds away. I had to sleep on the floor, was... More

Located perfectly the other side of the beach path and very close to the boat drop off point. The communal area and bar upstairs is great, and the dinner and bintang offer is excellent value. The rooms are spacious and well air conditioned. There were a few power outages whilst we were there which seemed to affect the hotel more... More

Nice hostel but room for improvement. Firstly, no wifi or very limited when/where it works. Beds are very close to toilet/bathroom so you can hear everything that goes on. It's in a good location and has a good vibe. Nice staff etc.

A clean hostel with good aircon and good rooms. They cleaned the floors every day and the bathroom was alright. The best thing is the pool in the front, great place to chill and have some drinks in the pool bar. The hostel has a great location right by the beach, close to everything and have a nice rooftop bar... More
