bed bugs but beautifully decorated


BEDBUGS! Don't go there! After I checked in I was shocked! I never saw thousands of bedbugs running on the walls, on the lockers, on the floor and of course in the bed. Also the staff was disgusted but sprayed the room just with insect spray so not useful to kill them! I changed the room to a cheaper dorm but when I asked for my money they said that they can't give it to me. After I have stayed there I was bitten everywhere!! -really everywhere! Worst hostel in my hole travel trip!

Toilets are terrible, not clean, always ran out of paper, and far away from kuta beach, so it is more quite.


Guess house was an amazing experience. The other bagpackers were so nice and similar to our group. The staff is so helpful and understands you! As for security: i felt like in a James Bond movie! Electronic cards as keys, electronic locks etc the location is about 10min walk from the famous potatoe head and a good 15min-20min walk from the crowded areas on the beach. Go for this hostel!!!

Hostel looked very good at first sight but when you looked closer smaller issues arose e.g only one tap worked, a toilet was Sellotaped shut and could of improved overall cleanliness. The key cards where good for security and we enjoyed our experience, 3 nights was enough there. The new cafe linked to the hostel was cheap and staff were friendly , it just felt understaffed throughout the day in general


Great place to stay in seminyak, one of the cheapest hostels around. The location is great petitenget is very posh, you have good (although a bit pricey) shopping around you plus potato head beach club for some poolside action, mantra bar for live music and hu'u bar for clubbing. The staff are very helpful and nice, the hostel is also nice and quiet. The only negative comment is that the showers lack pressure and toilets may not flush well but it's the same almost everywhere in Bali.


Everything was fine besides there were BEDBUGs everywere and the staff was not interested at all to do something against it. I could change rooms without problem but there were bedbugs too.

Bathrooms are pretty dirty. Living area is average (deceiving photographs), a bit stuffy with slight chemical smell. No pantry and very small common area. Excellent location. Helpful staff.
