Very friendly staff, Ketut made us come back! It is a nice walk through a narrow alley but in the evening or when you are alone a bit scary. Actually the panoramic view from the balcony makes it all worthwile. Breakfast is nice, order the Lemonhouse special and it will make you smile.


Fantastic hostel! There's a front door so there are two keys between your stuff and the outside. We had the private A/C room which was spacious. Big clean bathroom as well. Included breakfast was delicious each morning and cooked with love. Location is very near the white sand beach, which is never as packed as Blue Lagoon. The owner, Kutuk, was SO friendly! His recommendations and advice were always superb. We would gladly return to this hostel next time we are in Padang Bay


Breakfast wasn't as good as before, needed painting In a few places around the house. No staff on arrival and minimal staff after breakfast was served.

I stayed in the hostel room which was good value for money and included a free breakfast. The staff were lovely and really helpful and the place was very clean. Only small problem was that Lemon House is a 5-10 minute walk from the main centre of Padangbai and involves a walk up a long alley way (a little scary when alone in the dark). However there are great views from the communal area!


The place is very clean and staffs are very friendly. Although the location is a bit far. Overall it's really nice to stay here. One more thing is the breakfast is really delicious!


The evening before arrival found out our 'confirmed' booking was double booked so we had to traipse around the town looking for somewhere else to stay and ended up paying more than what we would have liked. Had £5.13 deposit taken out of my account and would like this to be returned if possible! Double bookings can't be helped sometimes but suggest notifying hostel owners etc to update sites as quickly as possible to avoid this. I'm sure it's a good hostel just didn't get a chance to see


The view over town is excellent, and can be seen from the common room or the private suites. The staff was also very nice and helpful, but no one was there when we arrived and so we waited about 90 minutes before anyone came back to help is check in.


The door was always open and the locker dind't work. Bali is a pretty safe place, but still it felt weird to leave everything like that in the room with not even the main door locked. The owner sometimes didn't show up, so it happend that other guest needed to "Check-in" new guest. However, the Hostel is nice. It was clean and the view is amazing. I also loved the breakfast. I would recommend it to an Easy-going backpacker.


Fantastic hot water! Good breakfast! The views were fantastic as we were half way up on hill. Close enough to both Blue Lagoon and White Sand Beach. The downside: Constant noise, prayer from mosque, announcements from harbour, boats totting horns. We got tickets arranged via hostel. The porter was useless. Kept yelling to hurry, then just randomly pointed us to harbour. The only good thing was assurance we had real tickets. Didn't even offer to take our bags on his motorbike.

Simple but clean with great breakfast and friendly staff. Great value for money for a stop off in padang bai to/from the gili islands. Watch out for the stairs up to the hostel with a heavy rucksack!
