The hostel is situated on a hill with a great view over the village and the sea. It's a calm, friendly place where I would go to again.

If you want to go to Gili island. You can get cheaper (200k RP) fast-boat ticket at harbor, ps: also faster than MARINA.


The two guys running it were wonderful, super friendly and made a great breakfast. Pillow and bed were hard, so the sleep wasn't great. And the doors to both the hostel and dorm were frequently left wide open, which made security an issue. There was a small locker for valuables though. Good location, right next to the harbor. It was a nice place to relax and plan the next leg of my trip.


Great views, very attentive and friendly Staff and a very nice breakfast to look forward to.


I booked this on a last minute whim and the owner was there to meet me, show me round the place and was surprised that he had been running it for 8 years as it looked brand new. The one thing that let it down was my room was by the front door and it's possible that anyone can come from outside and just walk in but the Balinese people aren't like that. Bit of a bad experience in that other people in the hostel did not speak as they were connected to their laptops/mobiles but wasnt hostels fault.


Splendid hospitality, beautiful view from terrace and very clean. Could have a bit more snack selection to save the trip down the stairs for last people :) Thanks guys for the awesome chilled atmosphere and your kindness.


Lemon House is a beautiful hostel on top of a hill overlooking the bay . The staff is amazing, so friendly and attentive, i feel like I have left with friends. Facilities are nice, only one bathroom to share but that's the only negative I can think of and it was no problem at all. Breakfast every morning was delightful and a great way to start the day. Will definitely be back to Padang Bai, for the sole purpose of enjoying this hostel !!!


The staff were great, the view was superb. great way to eat your delicious free breakfast in the morning. Would definitely recommend staying here.


Very nice and spacy Location with clean rooms and facilities. The view from the balcony over Padang Bai is amazing. But overall the staff was extraordinary...Lemon House the best place to stay in Padang bai. Forget the rest


The owners make the place. They are super cool and helpful. The only downsides are there are a heap of stairs to reach the place and the rooms could do with aircon. Other than that excellent value for money and the breakfasts are awesome! I would def stay again!
