    Absolutely loved it here! The absolute greatest staff, best food, huge grounds, and tons of other friendly travelers lounging around the very big common area… I planned on staying 1-2 nights, but ended up staying for 6. It’s more like a big fun compound than a hostel, oh and the best huge pool (that’s ACTUALLY deep enough to jump into)

    Great hostel! Felt like a resort with the big pool and sun beds around it. Comfy beds and air conditioning in the rooms. Friendly staff and great food. Would 100% go back.

    Love love love Begadang!! Came back here to stay 3 times in the 2 months I was in Indonesia. The hostel has the most friendly and chilled atmosphere, and perfect for solo backpackers as I met and made loads of friends. The staff are so so great, always smiling and helpful. The food is great if you just want to stay in and chill but it’s also so close to the beach where there are so many restaurants and the most amazing sunsets! I couldn’t recommend this hostel enough and I really hope I make it back again o

    Loved staying there ! The huttes are actually a nice experience (we don’t have that often for such price), the staff is so nice and the owners ? So fun ! If you watch F1, they will for sure put it on the TV ! Great destination to just chill and do nothing by the pool

    As a backpacker on a tight budget, this hostel was not ideal. Felt more of a family/relationship atmosphere. Staff was very accommodating, food was truly amazing but expensive when on a tighter budget. If I was travelling with more flexible money or family, this is where I would stay

    Amazing stay!! Super lovely environment and food. However there was one friendly but at times aggressive hostel host manager who made our trip a little bit worse. He was quite pushy and intense but apart from that we had an amazing time :)

    Staff were lovely and food is amazing. However, the communal area (cushions and chair covers) are dirty, I had to ask for the dorm bathroom bin to be emptied twice as it was over flowing, no hot water, pool dirty (it will turn your hair green too), no hooks for towels in the dorm or the bathroom. There's a very loud religious calling on tannoy next door which starts at around 4:40am and goes on for about 40 mins. Drinking water only available when kitchen is open.
