This is the second time I have stayed here and it will always be my first choice for this area, it is handy to / from the airport. It is a hidden gem.

The Island is a great place to stay if you'd like a hostel that feels like a hotel. The facilities are excellent and very well maintained. The pool is beautiful and the rooms are of a high quality. The atmosphere is a little disconnected compared to other places I've stayed. The staff are a bit off hand with directions and help, so expect to do most of that on your own. Overall great value.

It's just not my kind of hostel. I stayed in the mixed dorms for 3 nights and had 1 good night's sleep there (mainly because the first 2 nights I barely slept from noisy ppl at odd hours of the night). The hotel is aesthetically pleasing and the food is great. But the bathroom near the dorm upstairs is filthy and smelly. There were blackouts each day I was there, one lasted for about 3 hours (no wifi, no lights) :(

Great location and an awesome atmosphere. Met heaps of different solo travellers. Stayed in the dorm room on the ground floor, aircon was great and the beds really comfortable. The pool is nice and the food and drinks relatively cheap at the bar / kitchen. Complimentary breakfast is good value. The location of the hostel is right at the end of a long alley, a bit daunting if you're arriving or travelling at night. Much easier to get to the hostel from JL Legian than Padma Utara.

Had a great time in a chilled yet funky envronment. Staff always helpful. Easy acces to Seminyak & Kuta, but tucked away just enough to be able to relax. Well priced & recommended for any who want to be in a central location without a booming nightclub in the background.

The Island Hotel Bali was a real disappointment. The pool was lovely and the dorm was cool, with clean sheets and comfy beds. HOWEVER. Showers and toilets don't lock, wifi wasn't working. We then spotted a huge rat in the cafe. Later that night, my friends bag got snatched on JL Legian, and there was no night guard at all to help us. Wifi still wasn't working. After trying and mostly failing to enlist help from other guests, we went to bed.

Really nice place to stay! Clean rooms, nice common areas in restaurant and by pool. Only thing that could have been better was shower and toilets.

The swimming pool is a good lesure place. the aircon had a little problem with it, because it was leaking all the night.

Great staff, very helpful. I was in transition of moving from Canada to Australia and they let me keep a large suitcase in storage for a month, no charge. Very appreciated and helped me make the decision of returning. Pretty good for meeting other backpackers, not entirely central to all the bars but kuta sucks anyway. Great to meet people, drink with them, and continue your journey.

Staff when cleaning rooms in the morning come in at like 10am and are singing and talking very loudly not caring at all that a lot of people are trying to sleep still! Terrible when u r hungover and desperately need sleep:) Other staff are terrific...upstairs bar is chill and very nice to converse with other travellers. Overall I love this hostel, situated in the middle of the big block, it's far enough away from krazy-kuta that draws u in at night

I enjoyed my stay at The Island Hotel Bali. I particularly like the pool and the rooftop area where you can have a quiet time on your own. The place was well kept and clean. Great ambience and very easy to talk to other people. I will definitely come back here on my next trip to Bali. Highly recommended.

A bunch of English assholes just ruined the fun for all the others at the hostel to the extent that they started to behave rudely with the manager of the place. Due to this many just left the place without socializing. Apart from that, it was a decent place. They have good showers and a nice pool if you want to go for quick swim. Legian beach is very close and so is other necessary amenities. Except for the despicable traffic in Kuta, the place is very close to the Kuta beach too.

Top hostel. Comfortable beds, great breakfast with fresh coffee and juice, super clean showers, really clean, decent WiFi, cheapest beers on island and amazing staff - from cleaners to office staff. Ideal place to meet others if travelling alone and 5 minutes from beach. Highly recommended!! A good nights sleep guaranteed too.

The staff memebers seemed annoyed about questions and sometimes they weren't really friendly. The reception was always opened late which was really annoying if you have question or want to organize sth on that day. The private room with own bathroom was comfi and clean. The pool was really nice and clean. The breakfast was really good.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The atmosphere is really nice, the dorms are bright and with light colors, there are lockers and a basket under the bed for you to put your stuff in. The food (especially the pizza) is really good in the restaurant! I also met some really cool people in here. The location in perfect if you want to avoid the hustle in Kuta but still be in around 20 min walking distance to all the restaurants and bars.
