Great hostel, slightly off track when arriving in the dark but after a walk around it's fairly easy to find. Good pool facilities and the en-suite bedroom was great value for money. Common room / bar makes it easy to meet people.

Nice place, walking distance to the beach. Plenty of bars/restaurants/shops nearby. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast a bit spartan. Room was clean, but sheets were really old and grey-colored (but smelled ok). The only thing I wouldn't recommend is the free welcome massage: i got badly scratched on my arm and the oil they put was really stinky.

Great place with a good atmosphere. The beds are extremely comfy and I wasn't backpacking! Lockers are big enough to hold a carry on suitcase plus there is a container for each person underneath the beds. The pool is a great place to hang out and meet people and a welcome escape from the beach. The only downside for me was that the communal bathroom downstairs wasn't very clean - particularly the sinks although I saw the cleaners go in every morning. I would definitely recommend this place.

Receptionist very friendly but breakfast lady was very rude and short. Nice pool, facilities, poor wifi - overall enjoyed our stay in a private room, clean and simple even provided shampoo and towels .

Charming hotel that is beautifully decorated, and well kept. Nestled in a sleepy, quiet street, in Legian neighbourhood, it is within walking distance of the action: beach, restaurants, and shops. An excellent choice for a stay in Bali. Budget friendly, good food at the coffee shop. Lovely pool and ample common space to unwind. Friendly staff. Rooms/dorms are super clean. Highly recommend.

I had a fabulous time here--it's comfortable and easy to meet people. The pool and decks are really nice and make it worth the money!

Great stay... again! Just back from the Gili's and had my last night in Bali before heading home. Thanks for organizing my boat ride to Gili's Sam, went perfectly. : ) Love The Island and all the crew there. See you again soon. x

Good place, although is kind of hard to find it and you have to walk to the places you want to go.

The Island Hotel is a good hostel. Relatively pricey and certainly not the best hotel in south-east Asia as I read somewhere else. Somewhat hard to find. Staff was not as friendly as I'm used to in Indonesia. Wi-fi does not work most of the times, staff is indifferent about it. Dorms were clean and are beds are made up daily. Guests are provided with lockers, which is the only line of defence against thieves. I think the hostel is overpriced, but that's probably because of the pool.

Excellent place. Met the best people here. Staff were great, the cafe was convenient and the hostel is situated quietly in the street of Kuta.

Excellent hostel, clean and attractive. The pool is fantastic and the food is also pretty good. My only complaint is unfortunately in the property next door their is a rooster that starts crowing at about 4am and does not stop until sun-down. It is a loud and persistent bird that even my ear plugs could not block out. This is unfortunate for the hostel as there is little they can do about this so I suggest avoiding rooms 109 and 110 that are closest to the rooster.

Great hostel! Insanely spacious dorm, amazing hot showers, nice common area for eating and fantastic pool. Bit of a walk to kuta but worth it to stay somewhere slightly quieter. Don't bring anything out at night except for cash! One of our group had her handbag stolen from a guy on a motorcycle walking back from kuta.

Great hostel! Staff is really friendly and helpfull. It is a very open hostel without strict security, but this isn't any problem, because the hostel is at the end of a 'gang' (alley). The showers are really awesome compared to other cold, showers in Indonesia

My favorite hostel in Indo so far! The beds are some comfortable and cozy with aircon, duvets and curtains. Slept better there than anywhere else. Great atmosphere, met some super cool peeps there! Home away from home ❤️

The island is very relaxing and so close to everything, kata beach,shopping,nightlife and has the best pizzas in kuta. The staff are amazingly helpful and the rooms are cleaned daily. Relaxing by the pool is an added bonus!!
