Nice, clean backpacker hostel at budget price; the calm, serene Sannur beach is just 10 min walk away. Hot water facility and TV are provided. Wifi also but in limited area(seemed weak). Opt for the AC dorm as not all are comfortable in tropical climate of Indonesia.

Room Tip: Opt for the AC dorm as not all are comfortable in tropical climate of Indonesia.

I would recommend this place to everyone. Big pineapple made it really easy to meet other travelers. All the rooms are cleaned each day and beds made with clean sheets and bed covers.The pool and social areas are fantastique.We all used their BBQ and had a great feast for so cheap.The staff found my wallet with a large amount of money inside plus my cards.I accidentally left in my sopping bag and put it in the fridge (stupide) ,The owner (Mia) emailed me while I was at another hostel in Kuta. I thought I lost it in the cab.Big thank YOU,I will tell everyone to go to your hostel

Room Tip: Choose the airconditioned room because its only 50cents extra

Great hostel with a great facilities with everything you could possibly need. Great communal areas which makes it so easy to meet new friends. Terrific swimming pool and TV lounge. The whole place is super clean with larger than normal dorm rooms. You can really save your bucks because you can go everywhere (beach shops and cheap places to eat) without catching a taxi.Plus they have a nice and clean kitchen to cook your own food and even free drinking water. This all adds up as a value place to stay. I came with my girlfriend and we extended for an extra week because it was so great.

As a backpacker, having hot water, a safe place for your overstuffed pack, and wifi are essential. Big Pineapple has all of that but what throws this place over the top is Mia, so helpful, trustworthy, and full of great information. Definitely NOT the type to try to gouge you for all your worth just for her benefit, which is almost invaluable when traveling abroad.

Came back multiple times throughout my stay in Indonesia, using Big Pineapple as a jumping off point and met tons of like-minded travelers. Which is easy to do there as the common area is perfectly set between the pool and the kitchen.

Would and have definitely recommended staying here!

Nice place to stay if you do not want to spent too much money. The hostel has a swimming pool, kitchen and lounge room with wifi. The owner Mia is really friendly and helpful! Great place to stay if you do not want or cannot afford a hotel next to the beach.

Room Tip: If you are a couple, the private is cheeper than the dorm

I stayed in this hostel with my friend in aircond dorm for 4 nights. We really enjoy here. Meet so many travelers and its very fun. The hostel is in the other side of Highway but it's no problem at all. The room is clean and the swimming pool is nice for cool down. There also many movies you can watch in the lounge room. Very good atmosphere with very nice staff. The beaches of Sanur also nice and quite. Very cheap for the facilities that you get. We will be back to stay again here for the next trip to Bali.

Room Tip: Aircond room better for stay. Cool and nice.
