ok room , ok location. staff: not friendly. breakfast: not good.
Made a nice price for couple of night's. With payment they couldn't remember agreement anymore. Yeah sure.. You could get better on Gili Air.

We stayed here more than a week. First (2 nights) we had a dirty room, but it was the cheapest. We changed to a more comforatble room which was a little bit more expensive, but still cheap for Gili Air. The guys working at the hotel, bar and restaurant are really nice and fun!

Stayed for a few days here, was cheap, and the guys were fun. Even the basic bungalow I was in had a hammock, so I was happy enough! Though maybe not so clean in the cheapest ones. But great location, as close to some stuff, but also easy to get to the other side of the island and into the village. But I can also appreciate the comments from other reviewers, maybe not everyone's cup of tea!

Room Tip: Worth spending more on the cottages at the back, I saw one of these and it was clean and lovely.

This was the worst place I stayed whilst travelling S-E Asia. The room was dirty and the employees were intimidating and rude...pretty harrassing if i'm honest but I guess I was with 2 other english girls. The breakfast was awful too,

I stayed at Gita Gili for 4 nights. Very basic room - Room 1. No AC (Gili is cooling), shower with mosquitoes (and water pressure is pretty weak), dim lights, spacious, beds were fine (no bed bugs in my room at least)... basically something for the tight budget. For myself I would not stay long-term, but for a few nights it does the job. Was doing a diving course so did not really spend much time in the room - in the evenings chilling out at the bar was better than staying in the room.

The dudes at Gita Gili were nice, friendly and funny. They flirt (who on Gilis dont) but usually joking and mean no harm. Food was average - good to fill the stomach. Apparently it is also located at a pretty nice spot for snorkelling and just bumming around. They have 2 pavilions with TV by the beach, which serve its purpose at times, especially when there is not much of a nightlife, unless you hop onto a boat to Gili Trawangan (I'm sure you can ask the boys at Gita Gili and they will be more than happy to help).

Gita Gili is located on the island Gili Air and is located in the middle of the accomodation strip on the east coast of the island.
It has bungalow style accomodation and a restaurant onsite which serves okay food.Breakfast is included in the room rate but choice and portions are small so don't expect to much.
The bungalows are okay but maintenance and cleanliness could be alot better with alot of mould and dirt especially in the bathrooms.
The shower also has a floor made of loose stones which is pretty useless as the water does not drain fast enough to prevent it flooding all over the bathroom floor which is not so good.
Beds are okay but the pillows are worn out and really need replacing.
The beach outside the hotel is good for snorkelling at full tide where as outside this tidal currents can be very strong.Swimming is so so due to the coral pieces on the beach.
Overall it was okay but not particularly memorable.
