Great place, good atmosphere. The only problem is the busy road you have to cross to get to the beach, otherwise it's a great hostel.
Nice and quiet place to stay. Clean swimming pool, comfortable beds, quite cheap and not too far from the beach and all restaurants. The common area wasn't very inviting to hang out (hard chairs, bit dampy) so there isn't a big backpackers atmosphere. Yet, a nice place to stay.
Great relaxing place to meet other travelers though not much to do around the hostel itself except the beach. If you can, hire a driver that will take you out for the day.
Brilliant hostel, lovely friendly staff. Only thing is the location. Other than that, spot on!
It's a really nice hostel, after reading reviews I was a bit unsure, the staff are lovely, the ladies are constantly cleaning all day, yes I've seen the occasional mouse but due to the open plan lay out you can't stop it, not that it matters they come in sniff about and leave again, no harm done, as for ppl saying it's too far to the beach they must be really lazy or go the wrong way, beach is 15 min walk max,
Mia was absolutely lovely! She helped me so much.I had a wonderful stay!

Had a great time at this hostel, fantastic value for money with helpful stuff. Very social. Lovely pool and had TV with films etc (although didn't use this personally). The only downfall is having to cross a very busy road to get into Senur but this in no way ruined our stay!
Really loved the place! Great ambiance, clean and great staff!
The perfect place to crash for a night before getting on the boat to Lembogan. Friendly staff, comfortable beds and a locker to put your things in. Basic but everything you need for a flying stay.
Was a nice hostel for meeting people. It has a nice movie room. The pool is not used at all because you can sit nowhere around it. The beach is great, but you have to cross a very busy road without an actual crossing. Was a bit of an adventure :) the staff was nice and helpful.
Great little hostel. Staff are super helpful and place is clean. Having a kitchen is great! Nice to have the huge choice of movies for the evening too.
Really nice hostel - very friendly staff, comfortable bed, close to the beach and cheap food places - I will defiantly come here again!

Bring your own lock for the lockers (which are big enough for your small backpack and possessions) because the room doors don't lock. Was nice to have the pool because the Sanur beach was quite dirty. Easy to meet other travellers and went for meals with most guests at the hostel (it was slow season..). Not a ton of things to do in Sanur, so my 2 nights were plenty.
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.
