    Probably the best chilled hostel in the world. This hostel has a laid back vibe, small rooms and has been kept relatively small with plenty of space to chill and two small pools - there are plenty of facilities for everyone. There's great decor and art everywhere. There are activities an themes every night and the food is of great quality. In the day you can opt for diving or snorkeling activities.This perfect if ou want to enjoy the relaxing vibes in Gilli T.

    Broken Compass has got to be the best hostel that I’ve stayed in, both in Asia and Europe. All the staff were so helpful and welcoming, it felt like home when you were there. The bathroom was spotless, as it was cleaned at least twice a day. We were lucky enough to share a room with Missy who works there, and she showed us the best places to go on Gili T and took us out for the night with a group from the hostel. The food served was stunning, especially the burgers on Monday night!

    Cannot give these guys a high enough rating. Turned up here the morning after we found bed bugs at another hostel (didnt stay there in the end, but the bed bugs were on us). They welcomed us with open arms and took time out of there day to talk us through what we needed to do. They even washed our bags for us. They were beyond welcoming and, on top of that, the hostel is beautiful. Really comfy beds and nice atmosphere. The events they run, like snorkeling tours and dives are awesome. Stay here!

    Broken Compass was a fantastic stay off the main strip in Gili T. The staff was attentive and kind, the facilites are nice, and the location if perfect. One staff member, Missy was a standout she was a great energy and helped us find things to do on the island. Absoutley recoomend Broken Compass as a spot to stay on Gili T.

    I had a good stay here in a private room which was clean and had everything I needed. Nice pool on site, not a super crazy hostel but super central in case you want to party. Organized a private boat for me last minute and great that they offer a free breakfast. I’d stay again 🤗

    Really cool hostel! Comfortable beds, clean facilities and really nice bar and food! The staff are lovely and especially Missy became a good friend in the short time I've stayed there. Had to stay longer as I got a really bad cold and even then felt looked after! Would 100% recommend and stay there again.

    Really lovely hostel, had a private room, was a great start for my first hostel experience, staff were friendly and happy to help, five minutes walk to the harbour if that! and surrounded by good restaurants! Room was nice, comfy bed, clean and the shower was warm and powerful! Love the use of bottle everywhere! Also had a cool pool with plenty of space to relax!

    Perfect hostel for if you want an atmosphere of good music and getting to know people without being party crazy. Great music, lovely style of accommodation and liked how it was 3 per dorm. Staff friendly and create a chilled yet upbeat vibe. Close to all the good spots including strip, cute restaurants and water front but won’t be bothered by the noise or the strip at all don’t worry! Also bikes super cheap to hire there 40K.

    Great hostel, away from the main strip but in a great location. I stayed here as I was diving and wanted somewhere a little more chill. Staff were awesome, really friendly and helpful.
