Had bookings for 2 nights and ended up staying for 5 nights. The hostel itself is very clean & nice after the renovation. Free breakfast and big swimming pool is literally what I like the most! Lot of spot to chill. 10-15 minutes walk to the beach and great restaurant & bar To sum it all up, the sisters that...

My friend and I stayed here and loved it! We paid for a twin room w/ ensuite and ended up with a private room each with ensuites, in an entire villa to ourselves with a pool just outside the door! The staff were lovely and helpful and we also used the driver service on a few occasions. The only tip...

This hostel is great value for money, the dorm beds are wide and high (for bottom bunk) plenty of room and lockers provided. The hostel has just been refurbished and has a lovely deep pool , although the hostel is not so busy it has a backpackers vibe and good to meet new people. Sanur might not be for everyone...

This hostel is under construction at the moment. People work all around the ground floor, in the rooms and close to the pool. Therefore it's quite noisy all day. There is almost no one staying here at the moment. I met 5 other people during my whole stay here and that was everyone that was staying here. Can't recommend staying...

The area is quiet, I stopped here before going to the Gili islands, just about the same as everyone else who stayed there too! The rooms were basic as one would come to expect from the hostel. It was quite difficult to locate at first as its tucked away in a alleyway with no obvious signage around... The staff were...

I was disappointed when I got there because it didn't look very clean but it is actually not bad! Try to pay for the rooms with ac because is just a couple of extra dollars and it gets very hot at night...the pool and common areas are very nice. The location is good, not as bad as some people had...

I check in for the night as I had an early flight the next morning. At the airport I saw a bug on my cap, on closer inspection I found about 15 bedbugs on my cap alone. I also found my bags and clothes were completely crawling with bed bugs. Hmmmm not the best situation when your travelling!

First time we came to Bali, we stayed 3 nights at the big pineapple, and then we traveled around Bali for a few weeks to different locations, these included, Ubud, Kuta, and Padang Bai. We found the big pineapple to be a very friendly and homely atmosphere, the staff were very kind and very helpful with all of our questions...

I went here in Nov 2014 for my first solo backpack overseas, I know it's an overdue review. Sorry. The hostel staffs are very friendly. Not hard to find. They have a nice pool too. Sanur beach is walking distance anyway. They also have loads of movies you can enjoy if you want a lazy day. Backpacker's home in the...
