Stayed at this place for a good two weeks, even though i wasnt planning to stay in kuta that long i ended up longer just because this was great value for money. As a backpacker there are not many options to find a real hostel with shared dorms in kuta, unless far from centre. And everyone says stay at poppies lanes but half of the losmens there have no pool or are pretty shabby - i always ask to see a room first nd this one is defenately the best for its price. Its a traditional losmen , so pretty funky for photos, right in the middle of kuta, close to beach, has free breakfast and wifi, a good pool, nice maintained garden and a really relaxt vibe. Although its not a hostel you will find backpackers, surfers and young travellers mostly. The cheapest room with cold shower (fine if you dont sshower late at night) and double bed is 150 000rp a night for two ppl, 125000 if you are by yourself incl breakfast which is pancake or jaffle, fruitsalad and coffee or tea. A room with 2 single beds is 150000 too, which u can share with another traveller if you need to save some cash. They have airco hot shower and tv for higher price.
Theres a good local surfschool accros the street with blue windowseats where you can haggle to get 2.5hrs lesson and boardhire for the whole day for 200000rp.
For a cheap place like this the rooms are ok and basic. You can get extra sheets at reception, get them to put a bin in your room, or get them to clean something you are not happy about ( ie i got them to clean the dust of the fan, repair the mirror, asked for a bin and borrowed some plates ).
At a place like this just always check the room before paying, if something is broken get them to fix it or put you in another room that is better maintained.
About the stealing, i came with a macbook and slr didnt have anything stolen. There is no safe in the room but if you bring one of those cable locks you could easily lock up the wardrobe with valuables. Which i did after a week when someone told me about these reviews.
Noise is actually ok. Its located not directly at the street but behind a restaurant and other building and shops, clubs are further away. Most that you get is guests that go for a swim in the middle of the night or play music from their balcony ( so u know where the party is ).
