Staff could have been more helpful, but the owner is a really nice guy, and overall it's a great place to stay. Easy to meet people and clean.

Very clean, well-maintained hostel with an excellent atmosphere. The advertised security cameras don't reach all the rooms, though, so make sure to lock your doors and be extra careful with your stuff. I was less careful than I should have been and a bunch of my stuff was stolen.

Anyone with backpacking experience will have no problem with this place! It's clean, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. The only nuisance is that it's a bit out of the way, but the walk to the train station has a really nice park, and it's really safe. Overall I would recommend it!

Really great hostel! I would go to Sanur just to stay there. They clean and make the beds every day. Side note (nothing to do with the hostel itself): beware of the laundry service next door! They lost a bunch of our stuff, have us other people's stuff, and seriously stained my only nice ($70) dress...

Okay place to stay. I don't think that they should be allowed to advertise free wifi; it blocks most people's computers from most pretty main websites (like facebook...). Most of the staff wasn't particularly helpful or friendly (with some exceptions; a couple of them are totally chill). Difficult to meet people because they have a small common room. Good if you just need a cheap bed in a great location. DEFINITELY go on the free tour and their pub crawl (8 pounds). Best pub crawl EVER.
