This hostel is a few blocks back from the main drag, but that's beneficial as it means the surrounding streets are quiet. It's definitely a party hostel, however they have a really good system where they stop serving drinks at 10pm and take anyone who wants to continue drinking to Jungle Bar as a group so that people who want to sleep won't be disturbed. The staff are really nice, the food's pretty good, and there's an activity available every day (ie. paddle boarding, snorkelling, mini golf - all at an additional cost) and every evening (ie. beer pong tournaments, boys night, drinking games). The bathrooms are a decent size, and there's 1 shower and 1 toilet for every 4 or so guests. Each dorm room takes 3 people, and no one has to climb on top of a pesky bunk bed as they're all single beds. All rooms have large lockers, and there's a power point and light above each bed - my favourite part was that the powerpoints are multi-region so you don't have to use an adapter. There are also powerpoints inside the lockers (adapter required) so you can leave something charging in your room. The hostel is designed to guide you towards being social, and it's hard not to meet people. A great concept.

I was SO disappointed with this place. After reading all the great reviews, my expectations were high, however they were not met at all. I had a private room for 3 nights that had so much space for things like a fridge, hanging rails, yet the room didn’t even have hand wash in the bathroom. The walls are painted grey and the ceilings are high with one tiny window you can’t reach- prison! There is a glass-less window in the bathroom which is stupid, flies and bugs constantly are inside, the bathroom also smelt of SEWAGE. The website says they have hairdryers, this is not true. When I asked for one, I was told guests had taken them and not returned - why are these not fixed to walls like every other place?! There is no pool and nothing to do during the day but sit on the Hogwarts style long table or sit on a bean bag outside people’s dorms. I had to ask FOUR times for room to be cleaned, they’d forgotten to clean it and I had to keep reminding them. Towels had brown/orange stains on. They don’t have enough bicycles to cover all guests, it’s a case of first come first serve. The location of the hostel is in the middle of the labyrinth style streets, I would highly recommend staying over the West side of the island - a lot nicer. Overall I couldn’t wait to leave, this hostel is definitely for the age bracket 18-21, which I am far from!

Had the best time at this hostel, the staff were so amazing and really knew how to make you have a good time. Really miss everyone there (especially the guy with the crazy hair) and will definitely be back if I have the chance. Also really rate how they allowed us to drink bintang from the early hours. Thank you for everything xxx

Thanks again guys 💗 hanna x

My Mate's Place was welcoming and friendly from start to finish. They offered my friend and I a beer on arrival and took us to our spacious three bed door which had a locker for each person as well as separate lights, plug sockets and shelves over each bed. It was a very sociable hostel in the evenings, with a night out every night and great drinks deals as well as free shots and a beer pong table to get the night started. However, we liked that you didn't feel you were obliged to go out as they made all the party guests leave the hostel at 10 for the night out so others could get a decent nights sleep. Good location not too far away from the beach front and the cheap gym deal and offers to hire bikes were very much utilized and appreciated by myself. It would have been ever better with the addition of a pool but we learnt that they spent their savings to build a pool to help after the earthquake in Lombok caused a lot of damage on the island which was definitely a worthier cause. Overall enjoyed our stay here, it was clean, friendly and fun!
