    I LOVE this hostel! Had such a great stay here with lovely lovely lovely staff (thank you Wadi, Andi and Lily!) and great vibes. The hostel is beautiful, pool a little grubby but kind of what you expect, lush communal areas that make it super easy to meet new people and amazing food and drink. Good distance from the port and easy to hire bikes / see the island as well as the Hostel’s events each day. Only potential downside was our room was a little hot. Thank you, I’ll be back!

    Lovely place to stay on Gili T, stayed for Christmas and I had the best Christmas yet! Staff are great and very accommodating! Make a great roast dinner which was a bonus when I haven’t had one in a while. Rooms comfy, toilets always clean and pool is a great chill out area. Would love to stay again

    Broken Compass is about 5 minute walk from the boat drop off, nestled a block inland from the shoreline. The establishment includes a pool & bar, and they have a generator for when a power blackout occurs. The staff was friendly and took the time to introduce themselves and meet me. Room was good overall, although the AC’s white noise was a little loud. There is a local mosque which broadcasts prayers on a loud speaker, sometimes at 4:30am, so have earplugs ready if you’re easily disturbed

    Pros: Location is perfect! Pool! Beds are nice and the room is super spacious due to their 3 bed rule. Toilet/shower facilities v good. Perfect mix between chill and social - but Def not a party hostel. Ok breakfast but not wauwing either. Cons: Language barrier with some of the bar staff. (front desk much better). Food is randomly priced some things good value some not. They kept cleaning my room at 10 sharp/staff quite loud in the mornings. Mosque didn't bother me but was a problem for some.

    Great hostel. Rooms and shared bathrooms were kept clean. The location is just off the beachfront so only a 5 minute walk. They hosted different themed nights including deals on food and quizzes. It’s got a very chilled vibe but also quite sociable if you make it. Breakfast was super good for money. Pool was a bit dirty but most of them are at hostels.
