    This hostel is a very cozy place to stay in Gili. The best place for people who travel alone and for groups also. Personal is great. They organise plenty of activities for their daily travels as box prices ,pub quizzes,live music ,karaoke etc. The atmosphere is awesome every day and night. I also enjoyed the pool and the food there. I definitely recommend to others. You get in as strangers and leave making lot of good friends.

    This was definitely one of the best hostels I stayed in. The staff was so cute,friendly & helpful. They even made me a birthday cake on the day I left and I’ll never forget the gesture. The rooms were clean and had everything you need for the accommodation. The location is definitely great and I was amazed by the beautiful island. The hostel does so many fun activities every night so you’ll never feel bored there. I’m glad to have a favourite place to go back now and on.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Broken Compass but sadly I was only staying 1 night on my way to Lomboc.I found the staff went out of their way to help and advise and the nightly activities appeared to be well organised and inviting. Compliments to the chef and kitchen workers for producing a most enjoyable meal. The room was clean and I slept well. Thank you Broken Compass, I hope to return.

    Loved my 2 night stay. Has a party vibe if you’re feeling it but also plenty quiet to get some needed sleep. Dark alleys were very dark and sketchy but that’s Gili T. Great air conditioning as well

    Not bad, not good. This place is a bit overpriced. Bedsheets were clean but there was a smell in the bathroom. Pool is strictly closed after 11 pm. They charge for refilling your bottle with drinking water. Food at their bar was ok but not great. Chicken in Pad Thai was a bit dry and the Dragon Smoothie Bowl didn’t contain as much fruit compared to other restaurants with the same prices. Excellent location, you can walk from the point where the ferries arrive.

    Unfortunately I didnt have the best experience at this hostel. When i arrived i found out their wifi was down for hours and again the next day. I used their laundry service and a lot of my clothes were not well cleaned and one of my shirts is now permantely stained which is really disappointing. Their shower was down while I was using it and waited 15 minutes until it came back up. There was just so many minor inconveniences that I experienced that made my stay not worthwhile.
