    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. Awesome welcoming staff. Great hangout areas and clean bathrooms. The manager (can’t remember her name) was so helpful with giving us directions and recommendations for the island. The beds have curtains, lamps, plugs, and an area for your stuff in a high, open well-designed space. There was free yoga/meditation sessions everyday as well. Highly recommended.

    10/10! You need to stay here if coming to Karimunjawa. Ami & the rest of the team there are so helpful & friendly. The beds are so comfy - even in a 24bed room you feel like you have so much space. A/c was good, toilets/showers spotless. Breakfast was AMAZING - a different dish each day & the main food menu has great options. The vibe is nice and chilled - it’s an easy place to spend a few hours relaxing & taking in the views. Good choice of activities & you can also rent scooters. Thanks BigK!

    Love this place! Beautiful, new and fresh hostel with amazing people. Great location with a wiev of the marina, a 15 min walk down to the center. I'm glad I stayed here, off the main road. The people who works there are so nice and everyone talks and hang out. Got invited to to a boat trip and dinner at the local marked by the staff and owners. Such a wonderful place. Are you going to Karimunjawa, this is the place you want to stay!

    Jake is no doubt the nicest Aussie I’ve met in my life. The hospitality of this hostel goes beyond words. Easily accessible from the harbour, clean toilets, clean beds, they have motorbikes to rent out on the island and the free breakfast is not your average half cut toast and palm sized omelette but enough to fill you till lunch time. Definitely recommend this place if you’re in Karimunjava (paradise).

    New clean hostel with friendly staff and cats. Ami the manager was very nice and drove me to the beach one night as it was my last night and hadn’t seen it. Comfortable beds with curtains for privacy. Would stay here next time.

    big k is a really nice hostel on a beautiful island. I’ve really enjoyed my time here. The dorms are spacious , the beds are comfy, there are nice hangout areas, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. It’s like a 10 minute walk from town, but for that you get a nice view from the rooftop. when I left, they were just about to start free yoga classes as well. I would definitely come back (if it wasn’t such a struggle to get to the island)

    Friendly place and the big dorm size wasn’t too much of an issue (at the weekend it often sells out due to locals visiting the island). Staff really nice and friendly. Good showers and toilets. Beds comfy and quite private with two shelves to put your stuff. They also have decent sized lockers. As well as the included breakfast, the food options you can buy there are really yummy. Best of all they have a cute rescued black kitten who enjoys lots of petting!

    Nice hostel, a bit outside the Karimunjawa town (10 minute walk) on a hill, with an awesome view. Staff very friendly and flexible. Can rent scooters and book daytrips through them. Rooms were clean and tidy, free tea and water all day around. Breakfast included. Only quip I have is that they thrown their garbage in the forest next to the hostel :(

    The showers were dirty and smelled really bad there was also no hot water in the showers available. The hostel is located a bit away from the city center and you really need a scooter. You have to pay for literally everything in the hostel and the staff not makes you feel welcomed !
