Best hostel I have stayed in Indo so far!! Good facitilities, a pool, lockers in the rooms, very helpful staff, just a 10 min walk to the beach and just a very very chilled atmosphere. Would definitely come back here.


Hostel is pretty much out of the way. No plugs in bunk beds. Wifi slow and is not working in rooms. Reception is only partly available during the day, amd after 7 pm it dies completely. Aircon ois nly working during during the night. No breakfast. For a beer you need to wait 15 mins until someone with the fridge-key comes out and lets you have an overpriced bintang. Overall not a good experience.


One of the cheaper hostels yet it had a nice pool, tv room with movies, lounge areas, a kitchen and all day coffee and tea and a10 minute walk to the beach which is no big deal. Some of the windowless bathrooms were a little musky and fragrant but it's a humid climate and you can't change that. They cleaned everyday and were friendly giving out a map to show you great cheap food stalls and which money changers were a rip off. It was relaxing and I would recommend it.


Staff was nice, room was spacious, AC was nice. Overall great stay!

The location is ok, about 10min to the beach and only a few minutes to cheap local food and shops, however, crossing the main road can be tricky at times. Beds could be a bit more comfortable but otherwise the hostel is nice enough with great vibe, pool and movies are definitely a plus.


Everything was perfect, but the cleanliness in the bathroom was a "factor". but i really enjoyed my time there.

The scores I gave this one only add up to 69%, and I stand by them, but I would give it a higher score. The beds are comfy and it is well located for what you pay. There is always staff cleaning, so the place is pretty spotless, but the bathrooms still had an awful smell. Maybe from the water that was leaking into them from a pipe. The pool is a nice touch, but quite dirty. Large kitchen space to cook in with all utensils you might need. Not the most amazing place I've stayed but still good!


If you meet the right people her, your stay will be amazing!


Aside from being down meandering, long, confusing neighborhoods 20 klms from Kuta or other beaches, this Gandhi Homestay was AMAZING!


Two nights in this amazing places full of interesting people and good vibes. Best hostel I've been so far! Staff suuuuper nice

Great hostel, pretty basic but constantly being cleaned and really good for lone travellers as the communal areas are great!

it was really hard to connect with the other people who were staying at the hostel. they were very on their own. if you look for a place to relax and not to sociolize, sanur will be te perfect place.


Great atmosphere, easy place to meet other travelers. Plus they have a pool!! What hostel has a pool?!


Loved this place! There is a pool and a movie room with thousands of movies for days you just want to relax and it's pretty cheap to get anywhere. They offer great priced trips to Islands. The atmosphere was social and awesome and the staff were lovely. I stayed in the 12 bed dorm and it was great. The bathrooms were a little smelly but that's the drainage in Indonesia, not a fault of the hostel. Cleaning ladies are around all day so the place is very clean! Staying here if I go back to Bali :)


Great value for money, nice pool, communal area and spacious dorms. Only problem was the noise that other guests make when returning from Kuta at 3/4am, no consideration for others sleeping and the whole hostel wakes up. There are no staff around to help so you just have to put up with it.


Very good hostel with great atmosphere. It's really nice that on a lazy day you can watch movies from the pool.


We booked a dorm for 4 peope but this was a passage room which made it to a dorm for 12 people. doors can't be locked. we left after one night.


Good little hostel. Was recommended by a friend.


Sanur is a great place to stay if you want to run away from the awful and busy Kuta. Sanur is also best place to stay if you want to spend time diving in Bali, it is where most diving shops are. The hostel is good, but i booked a 4 bed room and stayed in a 12 bed room. Room number 1 has 2 other rooms inside, with 4 beds each, but you end up getting all the noise from the other rooms and the aircon doesn't work well for the two rooms inside the main one.
