Great vibe at this hostel. The dorms were spacious and quiet, they have little bedside lockers for your valuables, just remember to bring a lock! Breakfast was included which was nice. Everything was kept clean and the staff were so friendly and helpful. It is a little far away from central Kuta, but I preferred to be away from the craziness of the centre and the taxis weren't too expensive. Great BBQ and social atmosphere here.
Best hostel Ive ever been to. Clean, good facilities, a nice pool and the best staff! Absolutely loved it
The staff make the stay and the atmosphere is really good :)
Good hostel with a pool and awesome guys working there. Was hardly any other travellers there when I went which i thought was strange seeing as it was supposed to be high season. Nevertheless, enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend.
Lovely hostel, lovely staff. Really easy to meet people!

Despite being a little far from the main strip and the beach the peaceful atmosphere of this hostel was worth it. The staff all greet you like royalty, the facilities are top notch and the free breakfast is welcome. If you don't want the hustle and bustle of Legian here is your spot
The hostel itself was great and the staff were lovely. A decent breakfast was included which was good. The atmosphere as brilliant, really easy to meet people. Super laidback but also easy to find people to go out with. Wifi is fast and food and drinks are reasonably price Main letdown is the location. It is a 35 min walk to the beach, 25 min walk to main part of kuta. Would be fine but have to cross 3 busy roads. If happy to get taxis then is fine (and taxis are like £3 each way so not bad).
Grans hostel is great for meeting people! Incredibly sociable, bbq evenings are brilliant to get to know everyone. Dorm rooms are nice, good mosquito nets, comfy beds, plenty of room. Negative is that there are no lockers. Pool is very small and nowhere to actually sunbathe but ok. Location is terrible. Need to get taxis everywhere and most drivers do not know where the hostel is. Not too bad though as sharing cabs wasn't expensive. Staff great, very helpful!
I absolutely loved this hostel! The rooms are very cozy and modern, the bed was super comfortable and everything was very clean. The pool and chill out area is great and the staff super friendly. I especially liked the bbq for dinner, which was great to get in to contact with other guests. I would definitely come back!
Nice place, friendly atmosphere. Good for meeting people to head to the beach (free hostel shuttle) or out at night with. Staff is helpful. A little far away from everything (i.e. beach and bars), but taxis are easy to come by and pretty cheap.
good atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, nice place to hang out. very out of the way, no lockers, some of the fans dont really work so well. very nice misquito nets! great solution to a dorm room problem.
Amazing staff, happy to help with plans and trips. Good breakfast, just need more fans in the rooms!
Great pool, staff, atmosphere! Could have more fans in rooms, otherwise perfect!
Loved every single day spent at Granny's. I've originally booked for 3 nights only and ended up staying for whole week. Staff is really helpful, beds are comfy and atmosphere is just amazing. Prices of products in bar and restaurant are really reasonable so on a lazy day you don't even have to leave facilities. Location is a disadvantage but there is a shuttle going to the beach in the morning so it's not a big issue. Perfect place to go if you want to stay in Kuta and want to meet great people.
One of the best hostels we've stayed at so far on our journey through SE Asia. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the people were so friendly, and the staff was amazing. That made it really easy to get to know the other people by hosting BBQ nights and organizing tours. Mr. Happy went out of his way to make sure everyone was ALWAYS having a good time. I only wish it were closer to the beach, but not a big deal as it was a quick cab or shuttle away.
Great Atmosphere, amazing place to meet great people and great staff. I would definitely stay there again! Breakfast is delicious and included! The Food is great, they cook for you. I definitely recommand this place if you re traveling alone!

Could add some shampoo or shower gel to the bathroom and the urinols don't make any sense where they are
The hostel itself is quite far from the main area of kuta, you have to get a taxi or rent a scooter. Staff were friendly and the hostel is well priced but security isn't brilliant. There are small lockers but dorms have no lockable doors so are open all day and night. It was very quiet when I stayed and most people seemed to be staying at the end of their trip so wasn't a great place to meet people.
