I stayed at this place for the third time. Both the dorms and the private rooms are a great place to stay! The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and they've got rain showers. Definitely recommended. The pool is nice and refreshing and there's a basic breakfast included (try the banana pancakes, they're nice!). It's close to the main streets, but quiet enough since it's in an alley.

We stayed here for four nights in a private room! The room was clean and nicely decorated. The free breakfast was very nice - I had the chocolate and banana pancakes!! The location of the hotel was good - only a 10 minute walk to the beach and near lots of places to eat. The staff went above and beyond - I needed a taxi at 5 am and the owner of the hotel offered me to contact her at those early hours if I couldn’t find a taxi on the road at that time. The hotel has lots of facilities to use - the pool was clean and beautiful and we loved the roof terrace, we went there after dinner most nights to play cards and drink beer. The food and drink within the hotel were cheap and tasty!! The okay improvement would be that I think they should offer a free source of drinking water, in a hot place I do not think it’s right to have to pay for water within a hotel. Overall it was a very relaxing stay and I would defiantly return.

My friends and I who were first time travelers to Bali stayed here for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it. They respond fast to emails, they are accommodating, the staff is very very friendly, the rooms were clean and the place was super affordable and budget friendly. Our airport pick-up driver, Made, arrived on time, made us feel safe and gave us a good travel tips on the way to the hotel. Even if we arrived the hotel really late (midnight), some staff waited up for us and made sure that we got to settle in comfortably. The location of the hotel is pretty good, although it doesnt sit directly on the main road and youd have to go through a few gangs (small alleyways) to get to it. walking through gangs late at night is intimidating and scary at first but its pretty safe and the airport pick-up driver walks you to the hotel which is pretty good. Be sure to carry your room key all the time because the door tends to lock even from the inside. Its not a 5-star hotel but its backpacker heaven. Amenities are simple but really nice. Pool, restaurant, rooms, bathrooms, terraces and common area are all clean and well maintained. The next time I go back to Bali, I would definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor can be more noisy since the pool and common area is on the same floor.

I stayed here in a private room for 4 nights and paid just over $148AUD for the whole stay. The location of the hotel is a bit hidden away so trying to direct Taxis from the airport can be difficult. The hotel will email you directions. Just tell the driver it’s near Melasti Hotel in Seminyak and they’ll know which way to head. Airport Taxi charged me 200k IDR ($20AUD) which I thought was too much. The room was adequate and it serves its purpose. Bed was comfortable and aircon was nice and cold. The private rooms are quite small and the doors aren’t sealed properly. So if anyone smokes outside then your room will stink of cigarettes. They have three common areas for guests, the best spot is at the pool lounge. The accommodation offers different options for their free breakfast, I always went with the fried noodles and coffee. If you miss out on the free meal, their menu has different options all reasonably priced. There’s also a great restaurant in the same alleyway called Warung Bule. They do laundry service which varies in cost depending on the amount of washing. Mine averaged around 30k to 40k IDR ($3-$4). The hotel is situated in the middle, if you exit the place on your left, you’ll be on the busy main rd Jalan Legian. The beach is only a short 10 to 15mins walk when you take the exit on the right. Overall this place was great value for money. You are in the middle of the loud and crowded Seminyak area which you can’t hear from the Island Hotel. I’ll definitely be back again. Ps do not be alarmed if you see huge rats running around. It’s everywhere in Bali! The Hotel is clean. The rats are just a usual sight in Bali.

We were so happy with the Island Hotel, it was such a hidden gem. It’s down a quiet alley away from the chaos but still close to everything. Just a 5/10 min walk to the beach. The pool is beautiful and so peaceful. The restaurant offers reasonable priced food. The staff were always very helpful :) we stayed in the dorms and the beds were really comfortable. We will definitely stay here again when in the area!
