    Gili Beach Bum was my favourite hostels to stay at during my trip. The rooms are clean spacious and comfortable. The staff are great in both the hostel and bar. In the evening we would drink in lava bar which has many tasty cocktails at great prices. The free breakfast was amazing as it offered a choice of tea coffee orange juice fresh fruit selection and pancakes or eggs. Would definitly recommend and stay here again. Thank you to all the staff.

    Loved staying here, the food was good and the hostel was clean and lots going on. The bar in front “Lava” was also a highlight, if you want any snorkelling trips organised or just to get on the GiliT pub crawl as at the bar for a guy named Malik, he was BRILLIANT, fab price and he is just such a nice guy he will show you around and organise things for you.

    I LOVE this hostel. The location is perfect. The beach is right in front of the hostel. The staff is lovely and will help you with everything you need. The hostel room is simple but very clean. If you walk into the room you smell the cleanliness. The bar in the front is a great place to meet people. And every Friday they do a rock n roll bingo. Most fun night you will ever have Would stay definitely again! See you soon guys!!

    Really enjoyed our stay here. Location is great - close to where the boats arrive/depart and right beside all the main restaurants and bars. The staff were so friendly and helpful with anything we asked of them. Great breakfast. Would stay again if back in Gili T.

    I honestly got to the place and thought they were shut down, not a single soul, no environment. The location is excellent but that's it. It doesn't have a hostel vibe at all, it's not a good place for solo travelers or socializing. The room was clean and ok, the dorm was only for 3 which is nice, and there's a private bathroom, but the water from the bathroom was gone most of the time. I spent 2 nights and ran away and I'm not a picky traveler at all.

    GBBH was a lot worse than I thought. I don’t see the value in it, RUP420,000/night, not even a queen size bed, I’ve asked around and tourists on the island pay 200k and they get queen size (sometime even king size bed) , 1 egg limit for breakfast, no fridge, cold low pressure shower, stayed there 10 nights, room cleaned 3 times, bedsheets keep coming off. Bar is noisy till midnight every night. Walls are pretty thin too where my nx dr didn’t mind sharing his life stories with his frds 4am mostly
