    Loved my stay at Broken Compass. I had a private room which was soo clean and definitely worth the extra cost. Everything worked perfectly. The staff were one of the kindest I’ve come across. They even helped me get to the terminal with my bags as I had an ankle injury. Every time I leave the hostel and come back, they are so welcoming and friendly it feels like I am coming home. I will definitely stay with them next time I come to Gili T. I highly recommend this hostel!

    The staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The location was perfect, only a few minutes walk from the beach and lots of bars and restaurants. We stayed in a private room which was very clean, comfortable, spacious and equipped with air conditioning. Breakfast was delicious. The lovely staff helped us organise a snorkelling tour at a great price. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    short walk from the beach and restaurants. bikes are available for rent from the hostel. the daily breakfast was really good! hostel staff tries to keep the shared bathrooms clean but that could be challenging since it's shared by so many people at a time. the ac gets really intense at night but only a sheet is provided.

    Really enjoyed it here. Only comment would be cold showers (which I quite like) and not the most comfortable beds.

    I stayed for a total of 6 nights. 1 night in a private, 3 in a dorm and again 2 in a private room The private room was very nice, with warm water, good towels and AC. All in all very pleasant There was a big contrast with the dorm rooms though. The mattresses weren't as nice, the remote for the AC was nowhere to be found, there was no warm water in the common showers and for a towel&blanket you have to put down a deposit, which is fine, but my towel had holes in it Great atmosphere/breakfast!

    Really liked our time here! It’s not the most social hostel, but that isn’t a bad thing considering how there are many places to meet people and party in Gili T. Pool could be a little cleaner, but staff was helpful and helped us out with laundry, bike rentals, activities, etc. Booked two nights and ended up staying for eight!
