    Amazing hostel, great location near the heart of everything but far enough away that the noise doesn’t reach. Nice pool and great bar. Free breakfast was tasty too.

    Loved my stay here! We were two of us, living in a private room. We were stuck for an additional day because of wind conditions but don’t regret it in the slightest. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful throughout and we met a ton of people at the bar as well.

    Had a great experience at BC! The staff are so welcoming, accommodating & friendly. It's in a great location, 5 mins walk to the beach with heaps of great places to eat close by. Really nice pool/ bar area with cheap prices & tasty food. There are also nightly events, making it easy to socialise. Really clean/air-conditioned rooms/facilities with lockable cupboards, private curtain and plug. We did the hostel snorkelling which was fun/value for money. Only downside was the non-existent wifi!

    One of the best hostels we’ve stayed in, felt more like a hotel. The pancakes for breakfast were really nice. Pubs and clubs were 5-10 minute walk away. Would highly recommend staying at this hostel. Only negative was that there were daily prayers projected over a speaker, and unfortunately the hostel is located near the speaker which woke us up each morning at 5am. Nonetheless we still enjoyed our stay here.

    Great hostel with lovely staff, good pool, bar, location, breakfast and spacious rooms. Chilled atmosphere compared to other hostels but still really sociable and the owner and staff will go out of their way to make you feel at home. Really enjoyed my stay!

    I really loved my time here. The hostel has a really nice aesthetic and the staff are really helpful. Met some really cool people while I stayed here. The free breakfast is really great and they have some good drinks at the bar. The rooms were good with comfy beds, keypad locks on the doors and lockers so security there was really great. Showers and toilets are good too and cleaned regularly. All in all if I return to Gili T I would stay here again!

    An easy walk from the ferry port. The staff are very welcoming and there is a lovely vibe around the communal area. You can rent bikes from here and easy to get around the island. Only thing is that we stayed during Ramadan and it is very close to the Mosque so that did disturb sleep and chill around the pool. Kept us out and about though. First night there was a quiz which other hostels came too, and there is always something going on
