I’ve stayed in over 100 hostels all around the world and Broken Compass has to be one of the top ten. Only 3 people to a dorm with comfy beds and great air conditioning. The atmosphere is friendly and social and all the staff are fantastic. Didn’t really want to leave because I was meeting cool people every day. Food and drink prices are very reasonable and there’s a good general store right across the street. I’d go back for sure!
Stayed in Broken Compass the 2nd time and will definitely go again. Everybody is super nice and friendly. We had a lot of fun with you guys. Probably one of the best places to go to eat on the whole island. Pad Thai was absolutely delicious! The room was clean and comfortable. Simon
Stayed here 3 days while checking out Gili T, the hostel is a 5 minute walk from the boat drop off. Hostel has bunks + private rooms; a bar & pool. Accommodations were good for a hostel, although my AC’s fan was a little louder than preferred. Staff is personable and really offers advice to maximize your Gili T experience. Only downside to staying here that a nearby mosque broadcasts their prayers on a loudspeaker, sometimes as early as 4:30am. If you’re easily disturbed at night, have a pair of earplugs handy.
2nd time here for me and for sure not the last. Great combination between the comfort of the private room with the atmosphere of the hostel down at the bar. (love the design and every little diver's detail) *Close to the port and pretty much everything important on the island. *"You can get yourself clean" (hot water shower, 25k/kg laundry) *"You can have a good meal" (LOVE the food - always super yummy, thank you Ali and Co) *"You can do whatever you feel" (Quiz night - each Wednesday) or well, just hang out and meet people. Or go diving with Compass Divers 🤩🤩🤩 🦈🐢🦄❤️ BC, Thank you so much to your lovely staff for your hospitality and flixibility! And FUN! last, but not least!

We stayed in a private room and it was perfect! Great size, clean, ensuite and a comfy bed! The staff were very welcoming and helpful! The hostel is close to everything you may need, plus has a lovely pool! Defo recommend staying here if you are looking for a chilled and friendly atmosphere!
