In da lodge has a fantastic atmosphere, it is chilled, clean, comfortable and friendly. The food is incredible and very cheap. The beds were great and the rooms spacious. Would have loved some air con as ubud was ridiculously humid but there were fans. Would most definitely stay here again
In Da Lodge, though I hate the name, was a perfect choice. Easy to meet people, comfortable for lazing around if you don't feel like touring, and easy to set up adventures if you do. There aren't locks on the doors and the lockers are only big enough for a few of your prized possessions, but the vibe of the place felt secure enough. I didn't consider this to be "out of town" at all - just walk outside and a few feet and you're right at the market. If you want AC and no ants ever, go to a hotel.
By far the best hostel I stayed at in all of Bali - In Da Lodge is extremely cheap, is right in the heart of Ubud city, the staff are incredibly friendly, knowledgable and willing to help. The atmosphere is great as the main social area is extremely inviting to meet new people. The beds are clean and comfy. My only complaint is that the Wifi is a bit finnicky (standard with a lot of SEA) and the hot water wasn't working when I was there, despite asking for it to be fixed. Overall, excellent.
The rooster woke us up every morning about 5-6 a clock so not much of a sleep there. Staff friendly and help full. They had movie nights that was a nice surprise. Location on the outskirts of Ubud but on the main road so not a long walk to all the buzz and fuzz :)
Excellent hostel and staff, great lounge area.
Staff very friendly and helpful, relaxed atmosphere. Great place to meet other people. Rooms are clean, only the bathroom could use an upgrade. Shower didn't get hot and when it did it was way too hot. Overall a very nice and pleasant stay though!
Amazing staff and awesome common area. Good for meeting people and its very close to Ubud's commercial centre.
Very nice hostel in a lovely building. About 10/15 mins from nice restaurants, ATM etc. Basic shower room in need of refurb but very hot good shower. Good social area downstairs which is great for meeting people. Good bar and food!
we stayed for 3 nights and two of those i had ants all over my bed! i asked to change the sheets and the lady tried to give me air freshener saying that would solve the problem! finally they were changed. second time receptionist was rude and basically told me i was wrong but after i demanded new sheets they were changed! wifi is very poor! food at hostel is good! flies everywhere! gaps in walls of dorms so bugs get in everywhere! cleaners wake you up early!

The place itself is beautiful. The garden area is amazing, but our room was pretty average. The shower was cold and smelly and the room was moldy. It's very social and the location is great! Even though the room wasn't that great, I would still come back!
Nice tranquil garden setting and just a short walk to the center of Ubud. beds weren't the most comfortable in the world and the rooms can get quite hot at night. a great vibe though and a nice place to meet cool people
Common area very nice. Dormbeds very uncomfortable!! Dorms not clean at all
In Da Lodge is a 5 min walk from the main road. It is really cosy and has a great social space. Bar was cheap and good and staff friendly. Only thing is the flies at night, but that's not the hostels fault
The hostel buildings are scattered around like a small village compound. Despite having direct access to a nearby road, the fact that it is situated on a small hill and slightly hidden, cuts off the noise from the busy street. The hostel has lots charm with very simple and basic amenities. Be prepared for shaky bunk beds made of bamboo, but that only adds on to overall village homestay experience. With weak WiFi, you'll probably end up seizing that opportunity for a digital detox.
Really enjoyed our stay at In Da Lodge. Great location, just off the main street. The staff were friendly and helpful, great atmosphere and common area. Reasonably clean, rooms were well tidied, would recommend this hostel!
Room was hotter than the sun. We ordered coffee to pour on our faces to cool down. Water
The hostel has a beautiful garden with a bar where all people gathered. The sleeping rooms themselves were okay - the beds are made from bamboo and a little shaky when going up, the shared bathroom was cleaned daily, but somewhat old.
There were too many ants in our shower
