Very good hostel!
Near the center of Kuta.
People from the hostel are very attentive.
Very clean hostel and nice food.
The only bad thing is the bathroom in the shared room... only one bathroom for 12 people.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
We stayed there 2 nights and I liked it. The room was nice and quiet, but the bathroom needs some improvement. There was no shower but just a bath tub, and after showering the whole room was under water, because there was no shower curtain.
The second night there was a power cut (just in my room), and the aircon stopped too. I needed some time to get somebody from the staff to put back the fuse, but after a while, somebody came and finally electricity was back.
Forget the breakfast, it's poor like anywhere in Bali.
The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
My friends and I booked 2 rooms here for 3 nights but due to some mishap we only managed to stay for 2 nights. Although the bookings was for 3 nights the management was kind enough to charge us only for the 2 nights that we stayed. and for that we are forever grateful. They even picked us up for free at the airport.
All of us loved the rooms, it was spacious and the surroundings were amazing. All the Balinese architecture and ambiance really set the holiday mood. The staff were also helpful and were constantly smiling. They even let us use their kitchen and utensils when we were suddenly hungry in the middle of the night and wanted to cook some food. We got the a/c room with hot water and inclusive of breakfast. Breakfast was basic such as eggs and toast but enough to get us started for the day.
The location is a little further away from Kuta Beach, around 10minutes walk, but it is close to everything that you need, a mini mart, eateries and shops. And it's definitely far enough from the main road so that you will not be disturbed from traffic sounds and the loud blaring music from the pubs and clubs.
The only thing lacking was the wifi, which was only accessible at the lobby. But that does not deter me from ever returning and staying here again. Oh but be aware that there is two Gong Corner guesthouse but they're under the same establishment and is only around 10min walking distance from each other.
Loved the breakfast options and the very kind staff. Frankie helped me a lot - he took me around Legian street to sort out my currency exchange which was a nightmare because the exchange guys were all out to eat your money but thank goodness Frankie was there.
I liked the dorms, it was the biggest dorm room i have ever seen and the beds were larger than a normal single size. The AC worked very well but you could only get wifi in the lobby which was not really a biggie because everyone socialises downstairs anyway.
The location is rather far away from the beach but if you get through the small alleys, you will reach soon. It is walking distance to Skygarden (I highly do not recommend going out at Skygarden because I was robbed there).
Booked at this place in november to be sure to have a room on new years eve. Two days before (on the 29th, while already in Bali and every other room for new years already booked or way above our budget) we recieved an email that 'they're sorry, but due to a overbooking they have to cancel our reservation'. After calling we quickly found out they were also not going to provide us with a solution. Moreover, they were 'so friendly' to make an exception and give our deposit back, if we go there to pick it up ourselves. No way to treat people and no service whatsoever at all!!!!!
P.S. We were not even the only ones; they said we should not make such a fuss as they had to cancel 6 other reservations as well.
We spend one week at the Gong Corner
and then came back for another in Dec. 2013.
The rooms are very clean and room service is done every day.
The airconditioning and the hot water showers
are working but with very little water pressure.
on the second stay, we had a bath
but it was not possible to run it cause the water pressure was so low
and the water would go cold after a while.
we payes 200k per night,
breakfast is included but pretty small.
All food is not that great.
But they have a little shop at the reception wich is really handy.
some of the staff are really friendly others are averadge.
We asked to rent a scooter witn them as well but the price and the offered scooter could not compare.
