By a silly mistake of our own we booked for the wrong night. So when we arrived it was fully booked and we couldn't stay there. But the staff was very friendly and helped us to arrange an alternative guesthouse. Which was super!

Beautiful views over Padang Bai and a pleasant airy feel to the property. Lovely breakfast with personal touches :-) I put Poor for security because the lock on the front door didn't work. However, the locks for our room worked fine. The staff were friendly, but they disappeared in the evening with no obvious way of contacting them if there was a problem. The dorm rooms only had one key per room, which is difficult when people who don't know each other are sharing the room.

Location is good and view is amazing! Staff is also really nice. My one suggestion would be that the communal bathroom kinda smells.... Some bleach would do wonders

Excellent hostel. Only complaint was confusion over final bill. We thought we got a downgrade because we were asked to choose between two rooms and we just asked for the cheaper room. When asked how much we would owe at check out, the hostel manager told us we owed less than what hostelworld told us we would owe. When we checked out, they pulled out the hostelworld bill and told us we owed the original price. It was still a good value stay, but we needed to replan our tight budget.

Awesome staff, nice view, near the beach, really quiet place to stay. Just bad that the shared shower is broken :/

A good place to stay for young folks in transit, not a place to stay in for a week as we did. It is a very small, hot building on one level, which is very hot. The air con rooms are best, but have no shaded place to sit. The furniture is very spartan, and the bright lights in the central corridor at night shine strongly through the fretwork panels above all doors, which is totally unnecessary in the en-suite rooms, we resorted to newspaper and pins to block it off to get some sleep.

Clean, spacious, nice tv, good breakfast. Be prepared for the steps up to the house but it is easy to find. You should take a torch but isn't really necessary. Would stop again even if it is just to keep fit

Very friendly staff, beautiful view from the balcony, nice breakfast (try the omelette). The seventy steps up are challenging, but the view is worth it. Do bring a flashlight, because the alley you're walking through at night is very dark. The quiet and beautiful beach is close by, and so are the restaurants and cafes.

The Lemon House is well worth the walk up the stairs to get there. We stayed in the private room with bathroom. The view was amazing. The staff were super nice and very helpful. Very clean. I would definitely recommend staying here.
