Wow wow wow, this was everything we wanted and more. The breakfast is amazing, the rooms are beautiful and the staff are the best I have ever experienced. Can't say enough good things about this place, stay as long as you can!!

Room Tip: A/C was good, and they have mozzy nets in all rooms.

This is a really well run homestay! We lived in the Santana bungalow with fan only, which was sufficient for giving a cooling breeze at night. The bungalow was clean, and they made the rooms both after breakfast and before night time. At night they prepared the mosquito net and lit anti-mosquito candles both in the room and at the terrace. The breakfast is served either at your terrace or by the pool (you choose), and includes a fruit plate, bread, selection of eggs or pancakes and juice and coffee/tea. The service is great and the staff is very helpful. You can refill your water bottle in the reception.

The place was located a bit inlands, it took us 5 min to walk to the main street by the beach, but the place was quiet and had a relaxing vibe.

All in all, this place offers great good value accomodation, and I would definitively recommend this place to friends.

We instantly felt at home at Woodstock from the second we walked in, the staff were always joking around with us and helped with any day trips or excursions we wanted to organise. It's set a little bit away from the main strip of Gili which is nice when you want to relax but you can easily walk down in 5 mins or use the free bikes and cycle. The hostel itself is lovely and simple- full of trees, flowers, gecko's and nice touches like the little bamboo huts in the shade by the pool and outside your rooms. The free breakfasts are amazing you get plates of fruit, fruit juices and pancakes or eggs on home made toast and papaya jam. This is the best value for money hostel I've ever stayed in and it has such a friendly and homely vibe, rooms are really clean and comfy with A/C and mosquito nets get put up for you daily. The outside bathrooms are also really nice and the showers are hot and powerful. I'd advise anyone to stay here- we loved it. Thanks for having us Woodstock :)

Woodstock Homestay is only a 10 min walk from the habour so there is no need to take a horse. The intersecting street which leads to Woodstock is quite dirty but don't worriy about that.
Rooms are very nice and superclean! They are cleaned in the morning and in the evening, they are prepared for the night (mosquito net and incense sticks are arragned).

The breakfast is amazing! Super pancakes and home-made bread are served with home-made jam. Additionally, they serve fresh fruits, a fresh fruit juice and a whole can of tea/coffee per person.

The owners and the whole staff are thoroughly superfriendly, attentive and very well organized.

The pool area is cozy and well-kept, too.


Since we stayed on Gili T during Ramadan, I cannot say anything about the true nightlife on Gili T and if there are any effects on the stay at Woodstock.

Negative:
We made the room inquiery via e-mail one day in advance. The price, which was offered to us by the owner did not inclue government taxes.There was no hint in advance that there are additional taxes on the room rate and we were suprised about the real room rate in the end.
Since the facility is managed in such a great way, this incident somehow bothered me.

I stayed here because it was so highly rated and talked about in the travel books. The website looked amazing. When I arrived it was pouring down rain and I didn't have a great first impression. It's a ways from the beach. My room was way in the back not one of the huts and it was full of Mosquitos. It was dark and damp. When I decided to move the staff was rude and told me he was calling the manager and I would have to wait. It was like I was being scolded. The manager was very nice and wanted to know why I was leaving.

Woodstock is probably one of my best stays during my travelling in Asia: extremely friendly staff and owner, very clean (our room was cleaned twice a day!), huge and tasty breakfast, great pool and relaxation area, tastefully designed garden and rooms - just perfect!
We had to have a flight arranged but couldn't book it ourselves due to the lack of an Indonesian credit card. The manager was extremely helpful and did the booking over a friend and didn't charge any «booking fees». Since the homestay is a bit away from the main beach strip you'll have the quiet environment you might look for after a partying night ;-)
There are some ants and quite some mosquitos but they do pretty much everything to protect you from them, therefore, I think it's fine.

Arranged a stay for 2 weeks here so I got a rate of 250k per night.

The rooms are cleaned twice per day. During evening staff sort mosquito net and incense coils.

The staff will take your order outside your room. Breakfast is very generous and kept me going until dinner. Breakfast you can have anytime.

Staff are amazing. They all work really hard and do everything to make you welcome.

Pool is really clean and sunny.

Location is about 10 min walk from main strip which is nice as it is quiet apart from the mosque which can be noisey but I think you will hear it everywhere and id rather listen to mosque for 10 mins than nightclubs all night.

Mosquitos are problematic. I often picked something dark coloured up in my room and had 20 mosquitos fly off it.. the net over the bed is a large cube system and the coils are lit in your room each night. I sometimes woke up with a lot of bites but I cannot hold the guesthouse responsible for this. Its the problem of going to a jungle island.
