#229 of 685 Specialty lodging in Ubud
Jukung Hostel is a chill hostel in the center of Ubud, close to absolutely everything, but situated in a secluded courtyard away from the hustle and bustle of the street. Jukung is the Balinese word for the traditional Bali sea canoe. A fairly heavy, small hardwood dugout, usually equipped with outrigged pontoons and a single sail, used by centuries of Balinese fishermen and sailors. Jukung Hostel is a meditation on this ocean-faring legacy. It is a work of art and heart which took seven years from conception to completion. The hostel has been decorated inside and out with thousands of boat pieces, stones and tiles to produce a living space unique in the world and distinctly Balinese. It is also equipped with all modern amenities. Strong wireless provides seamless international Skype calls, the dorms are air conditioned and the showers heated. Every spacious bunk is provided with a light, a power point, a shelf, a curtain, two clothes hooks and a foot locker, in true nautical style. There are ample power outlets in the common areas, a well-equipped kitchen and cold beverages in the fridge.

Dear Alexandra M, thanks for your review. We really sorry for what happened during your stay. The hostel had been renovated after the issue. We shut it down for about 2 weeks on December 2017 to maintain and resolve of rat issue. The staffs had resigned either. Temporary we do not have staff but owner and family work together for cleaning and serving our guest since January 2018 until recent. Please forgive us for our past service, operational staff procedure and everything. Hope for better future to give you the best we can give and please stay with us again. Regards, Jukung Hostel.
