“You can lose days here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great food, pool, quiet but sociable, clean, great staff, wifi and good location. The 12 bed dorm was the least dorm-like I've ever stayed in, with private curtains round the bunkbeds. We booked travel here to other places. You could book 2 nights and end up staying 2 weeks.

Room Tip: In the 12 bed dorm, the beds furthest from the door.

Hi Amy,

I'm glad you had such a pleasant stay. We really want our dorm experience the best in Indonesia as we understand that a good bed and clean sheets is what we need after a lot of travel.

We appreciate the kind words.

Safe Travels,
The Island Team

Stayed here for 2 nights originally then went to Gili Island (which they booked for me and were nice enough to store my things while I was gone) and stayed here again when I got back. My first hostel experience and it was brilliant!

Hi,

Nice to see that as your first hostel stay it was with us. I can't guarantee other hotels will be as nice as us (slightly biased) but that's probably why you came back. :)

This was the first stop on my travelling experience and a perfect way to ease you into the trip. Rooms are gorgeous and the beds are super comfy. Everyone's incredibly friendly and got a lovely pool. No complaints on hygene and the showers are nice and powerful. Would 100% come back!!

I have stayed at the Island Hotel for the past 4 nights and it's probably the best hostel I've stayed at. The room and beds are impeccably clean as is the bathroom. I am traveling alone and have met many wonderful people thanks to the several BEAUTIFUL communal areas. There's an infinity pool, cafe, and two rooftop lounges. There's always really good, chill music playing (not too loud) in the cafe and around the pool. 10/10 would stay again.

I've stayed at The Island about 14 nights in total during the last year (Oct 2013 and Jan 2014) for different lengths of time spread out over a couple of trips. I've stayed in both a private room and in the downstairs and upstairs dorms during these times. I found the accomodation excellent. The private room was so nice - large double bed with clean modern en-suite. The dorms are the best I've stayed in. So spacious with big comfortable bunk beds, light for each bed and privacy screens between beds so you don't have to feel too close to your neighbours and they have a decent sized locker to store your valuables and large baskets under the beds to throw your backpack so the rooms stay neat and tidy.

The outside area is lovely with frangipani trees around the pool, a little shaded area to relax and upstairs a large deck with a bar (opens only sometimes) and a rooftop shady wood hut which is great for a sunset beer.

The bar/restaurant downstairs is really chilled and friendly with great pizzas in the evening and this is where the included breakfast is served in the morning. Ad ons to the basic breakfast are cheap and so tasty. The staff are really nice. Reception staff are also nice, helpful and informative.

I've had just one night when it was a little noisy when some guests got back from a night out but all other nights peaceful and quiet for sleeping. Like any hostel the athmosphere is really dependent on the type of people staying at any particular time and some nights there were lots of people heading out to party where you can happily join in and other nights guest were just happy enough in their own groups or people doing their own thing.

Great hostel - happy to recommend it. For a backpacker a Real treat and for a holiday maker a boutique hotel type feel at a fraction of the price. A little spot of tranquility while still being close to the action of Kuta/Legian/Seminyak.

I stayed with my partner for couple days. The hostel is amazing. It's clean, pretty close to Kuta and Seminyak. Good food too. And the staff are friendly. Receptions are very helpful. Sam, Agung and Christy...they are amazing. They help us with everything we need. Plus we met many other travelers and spend our time with them. Was a great time. Will recommend this place for sure.
