Some issues with roommates who try after-party in the room and just outside the room at 4am (neighbours also came out to ask them to be quiet) but on my last morning I understood why that was as the common area was closed at 7am. I assume it is then closed for a part of the night but if you can't have that area for people to hang out in it would be good for the people who want to sleep if you didn't have the seating areas in front of the rooms as that is where people then continue the fiesta.

They've just reopened so the hostel was a bit calmer than what I've heard it normally is. Didn't hurt the party though! Awesome friendly staff, clean rooms and great location. I will definitely go back :)

Cool place & cool people! Maybe we were just really lucky but in addition to great staff every single person who we met at the hostel was awesome. The wine festival was going on so tons of hungarians were around for that as well and the atmosphere in the whole village was very laid back and fun. The hostel building is very cool but a bit run down so don't expect a polished look from the interior either. Beds were comfy, bathroom and sheets clean so really nothing to complain about :)

The dorm room was great, enough privacy, enough space for everyone's luggage and just nice & airy in general. Lockers for every bed so it didn't matter that there was no lock on the door. I've always felt safe in Bali anyway :) The place can be a bit tricky to find but once you spot their sign on the street you just have to trust that at the end of the alley is a really cool hostel ;)

we got really poor service over the phone when we had to call the number after reception was closed since we didn't have the sheets that were promised to us. No one we asked (6-7 people) could figure out what the advise we got from the guy on the phone meant... The brunette girl in the reception at least was really friendly, helpful and smiling, which made the 1 night without sheets and the pointless 20 min phone call not matter :)

Staff was really cool and made sure no one was left out when people were planning on going out in a bigger group. Always ready to help and giving some good tips on where to go and how to get there. Also my roommates happened to be a really good bunch on each of the three nights i stayed there :)

Well the door to our 10 person dorm was mostly unlocked, maybe you could make sure that it isn't possible to close the door without it being locked. It smelled really bad in the room, could've been the moisture and maybe even mold.

Staff, location and atmosphere were the best ever! Which makes me gladly overlook the fact that some of the showers were bit poorly designed, as in by the end of the shower you may be ankle deep in water :D And having 2 computers with internet access was good, so you didn't always have to step out if you needed to go online quickly. Laudry facilities were also good and it was cheap. Would definitely recommend this hostel to my friends!
