This was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff welcomed me in and it feel like a home more than just a bed to sleep in. Thanks to Danny and Anggie for making my stay memorable. I'll be heading back to stay again soon !

I can forgive not having hot water or reliable wifi even when it's advertised -- in the less developed parts of the world, that's never dependable. What really irked me was that they told us we weren't allowed to lock our room, and they added a fifth person/mattress to the floor of our 4 person room, but didn't compensate us with a discount despite the fact that there was barely space to walk. Bathroom sink was broken. Oh and they charge to refill water bottles (no hotpot).

One of the most welcoming place I have ever been! Angie & Dany give you right from the beginning the feeling you are part of the family, very warm from the heart. Kadek & Deva are the most friendliest staff I ever experienced & I stayed for a week! Every day friendly, smiling, never a bad mood - like it is a pleasure to serve & help you out! Fantastic start - was really hard to leave... Thank you soooo much for everything!

Hostel was fully booked, but only locals were hanging out there (with hostel staff) and I felt uncomfortable around one of them Hostel is located on dark road with lots of dogs and garbage everywhere. Reception is in the back, rooms are right by the street. I did not feel safe and did not sleep well because the hostel's dog was barking in front of my door and chickens/roosters started at 3:40 in the morning. Beach was still 15-20 min walk. Positive notes: friendly owner, clean room, breakfast

Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious. Nice garden and common area. Padang Bai gets really busy during the day, because most of the ferries to the Gilis start form here. I spend two night in Padang Bai, which was ok. Try Blue Lagoon beach during the day. Staff wil certainly help you with further recommendations.

it was great! it felt more like couchsurfing to me:) one day i got an invitation from the staff to join a local jam session, which was great:) breakast is included; i liked the pancakes the best;) the only downpart, for me as a non-smoker, was that there is a lot of smokers, which was not always pleasant with the cigarette smoke. also, if you want to go diving everyday you might want to choose to stay "downtown", its all walkable, but still nicer to have what you want next door.

Big, clean dorm room. Felt comfortable sleeping in these sheets. Towels are included, even beach towels. Dorm books up fast so I advise booking for as many nights as you plan to stay up front to ensure yourself a bed. Generous breakfast: a lot of fruit, coffee/tea, and your choice of menu item ( pancake was huge!). A five minute walk to the most beautiful beach in Padang Bai and still close to town center. Staff invites you to join them at bars and events at night. Social dorm, made many friends

Good location, just short walk of Padang Bai, but next to the entry of Bias Tugal, one of the best beaches of Bali. Friendly staff, clean and big dorm. Nice breakfast...

Bamboo Paradise is a nice hostel with only one dorm and some private rooms. The location is perfect, next to the entrance to the beautiful 'white sand beach'. Breakfast is included and was very good (you can choose different menu's, for example banana pancake with chocolate, eggs any style or banana fritters, it comes with fresh fruit). I can really recommend this place!

Bamboo Paradise is a great hostel. Ayesha, the owner was super helpful and accommodating and the location couldn't be better. The hostel is literally next to a beautiful and quiet white sand beach and close to town. Everywhere was walkable. Any questions, you can ask Ayesha. Also, the people who were staying there were super friendly. I highly recommend this place.

Nice double room in Bamboo Paradise, it was overlooking the main entrance and courtyard so a bit noisey, but spacious and clean with a big bathroom. Staff were excellent and good breakfast. Location a little bit out of town, but easily walkable in a few mins. Would recommend staying here.

Owner Ayesha was extremely accommodating and helped book fast boat tickets to Gili islands. Lovely little hostel with a great atmosphere.

This is one of the best hostels I have seen in 2 years of travelling. The owner, Ayesha, could not possibly be more friendly or helpful. The hostel is clean with traditional Balinese feel. It's a short walk from town centre, food and shops. Ayesha can sort out tours, bike rental and give the best local advice possible. She sorted out 6 days after I left the hostel for me and I had an amazing experience because of her. I will be returning to this hostel and can't recommend it highly enough!!
