Property Description

As the islands only beach front hostel, Gili Beach Bum Hotel, is a uniquely designed dorm hotel, with spacious and fully air conditioned rooms. Each room is secured by a pin coded lock and each bed has its own secure locker with power supply and reading light.

Gili Beach Bums popular Lava bar is considered to be the islands pre-drinking hot spot for both dive instructors and tourists. Lava is an open air bar right next to the beach, great cocktails, good music and a good atmosphere for both die hard party goers and laid back travellers. Lava is known to host epic costume parties and promises to be a good spot to get the party started on any night of the week.

In addition to our lovely beach bar, Gili Beach Bum also offers a free breakfast on our rooftop chill out lounge. Breakfast includes coffee and tea, a fresh fruit selection and pancakes (banana, pineapple, honey or plain). We also offer an on-site menu for those in need of a larger, more substantial breakfast to nurse those hangovers. Gili Beach Bum's rooftop lounge is ideal for day time chilling, nursing a hang over, reading a book or catching some shut eye. Movies are played on request making the rooftop lounge a comfortable homey area you do not want to leave. Pizza can be delivered on request without any problem.

    Excellent facilities at this hostel with very clean rooms. The staff were always very helpful and the complimentary breakfast in the morning was also a bonus and a great way to meet some of the other guests. The pool bar was brilliant too. There were usually some fun activities that all of the guests could get involved in, which again was a good way to meet people and make friends.

    We had a problem with our booking which I emailed them about and never got a reply. When I turned up at the hostel past 4pm (delayed ferry) they had given our beds away and was fully booked! We went back the next day to stay. Rooms were ok however you don’t get any WiFi in rooms. Our bathroom and shower was outside so a lot of little bugs things crawled in the rooms on the bed. Many power cuts lasted over an hour! Only a atmosphere past 9pm in the evening. However location is perfect!

    Perfect location for all of the nightlife. A little walk away from the snorkeling section as the beach at the front is for boat. The actual hostel is laid out cool. But the pool bar was never open. We were only given one key for 2 beds so we had to leave the door open if we split up and we only have the one locker key so one bag wasn’t secure which wasn’t ideal seeing as the bathroom shared between 3 dorm rooms had no lock so anyone from the other rooms could easily access your room.
