I had a brilliant time at Ola Ola - from the surf lessons with Lalu and the relaxing yoga sessions in a beautiful environment, to the food and accommodation at the Ola Ola guest house, I couldn’t fault it. I would highly recommend this place, South Lombok is beautiful and very chilled, a welcome break from its busier neighbour, Bali.

I was there for three days with some friends but got stucked there for 4 more nights! The owners, the staff and the experience there are just GREAT!!! Good professionals, hospitality since you arrive and they make you feel home. Also, the hotel is amazingly beautiful and cozy, and with a perfect location, just 5-10min to the beach (by the way, one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen in all Lombok!).
Will come back again for sure! Thanks Meri, Neus and Lalu!!

It was a really big pleasure to learn how to surf with this surf school, we were so lucky staying with Lalu, his girlfriend Meri and her sister Neus in their cute homestay. Learning surfing was fun but also very effective, we learned a lot of skills in 5 days and we fall in love with this sport. We could ride our first waves in in the first hour! They made for us also great photos from surfing waves. Staying at their place was great choice, it was for best price, clean and comfortable, quick wifi, close to the beautiful beach, you can also rent motorbike, other stuff is also very friendly and always smiling :) Breakfast is tasty and healthy and also every food we tried was awesome, we felt like part of family and we will definitely go back one day. Thank you again for everything, it was top of our one month traveling in Indonesia.Cheers from Republica Checa:)

The staff here are super friendly and willing to help a lot. It's basic accommodation (there isn't even a reception desk) but considering the relatively low cost, this should be expected. Currently, they're under construction and so this can get annoying because it's noisy at times. Its clean enough but theres no hot water. If you're chilled out about this kinda thing and just wanna surf then this is a cool place! If you want more than this, then perhaps look elsewhere.

Loved our stay here. GREAT hospitality. Only three rooms as they’re working on new ones to come, so it made our stay quite nice. Our room was very clean and simple. No a/c but a good bug net and fan. Power was out until 6pm (apparently common in the area).
Lovely breakfast included.
*There was a lovely, kind and extremely humble and respectable teenager who served us while we were there. Can’t remember his name, but he alone made the stay wonderful. Hold on to him - valuable staff!
Met the owner on our way out who wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. She too seemed lovely :)

Ola Ola is a nice hidden guest house in the vicinity of Selong Belanak beach, about 10 minutes walk. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, with affordable prices and a nice breaky included. The down side is that the place has currently no common area and, at the time of the writing, one is under construction, which can get noisy in the mornings.

Totally recommendable for solo travellers and couples. We thank the friendly staff.

We stayed at Ola Ola for 4 nights, which was a great place. Both Lalu and Gibran were so friendly and helpful, giving us tips on restaurants, telling us about the area, and providing an amazing breakfast each morning.

I went out with Lalu one morning to learn to surf, on the local Selong Belanak beach. It was a two hour session and they provided board and top. Lalu was a brilliant laid-back instructor, teaching me the basic techniques and then guiding me through the motions once out in the water. It was great fun - I managed to stand up and ride a fair few waves!

We just can say thank you to the owners Neus, Meri & Lalu for letting us enjoy our best stay in Indonesia. The best surf spots and a hostel where during 5 days felt like home. We'll definitely come back!

We loved it here! We stayed for 4 nights and went surfing for 3 days. Two times at Selong Belanak beach and one time at Grupuk. Lalu is a great instructor! And the two Spanish sisters are great fun and have us a proper yoga warning up before surfing! Gibran made a delicious breakfast and also made us feel really at home.

We felt very welcome here, everybody is very friendly and helpful. We felt like we were among friends. The place is very clean and new. They designed to place themselves.

I would definitely go here again and I can recommend it to everyone!
