I've stayed at this hostel three times already in 2013 and am going back again in autumn - for me the hostel itself is a big part of the experience of visiting Gili T and I'm clearly not the only one because their public bar is the most popular place on the island to start the night even if you're staying elsewhere. It's a very social hostel which is part of the appeal and it's easy to meet people (even if you need a helping hand; just hop on the party boat which they help arrange with one of the dive centres).
The dorms are spacious & clean with air con as standard, the bathrooms always have hot water (two showers, two toilets & four sinks shared per every two dorms), the bar only serves branded (i.e. safe) alcohol and the staff can help arrange your onward transport. The building itself has great character as it was purpose-designed and little improvements appear every week. The addition of seating on the open air roof space was a great idea! I can't recommend this place enough, it's a great option if you're in the area.More
