    Originally came here with two friends and then came back on my own a week later as i absolutely loved it. Gili T is great fun anyway but Gili Beach Bum (and lava bar) are awesome, there is something happening every night of the week, like rock n roll bingo or cheap shots and it gets really busy in the evenings. The staff are all amazing and go out of their way to make everyone welcome. The beds are comfy and the rooms are very spacious, also the aircon works really well. Definetely recommended!!

    Amazing stay. Inna at the reception was warm and nice to talk to. We had tripple sharing room and had three separate beds (as opposed to two proper beds and third makeshift one). The washroom was divided in separate sections which was convenient. The bar (Lava) part of the hostel was one of the better ones with good music and recreational games.

    Loved this place! It's connected to a bar, so it's kinda loud at night, but most ppl are coming to Gili T to party anyway. Had a medical emergency while here and they made sure I was taken care of! Bed were comfy and bathrooms clean!

    Overall very good experience at this hostel. If you’re looking to party hard in Gili T location wise it’s perfect. Right in middle of main strip and has attached to it one of the main bars called Lava so good place to drink and meet people. Also had nice breakfast and staff were very kind and helpful in arranging us transfer elsewhere. Rooms pretty basic but nice air con and did the job

    Pretty good stay overall. The hostel had a super chill vibe when we were there so not really a party place though they do have cheap drinks! Location was great as it was right on the beach and close to everything.

    It was ok, the atmosphere was pretty dead. I think there was one night where everyone comes to the bar to do. Buzzy quiz but apart from that the facilities were average. Although the location was good, near the ferry port

    Good location on beach front of Gili T. Rooms are big but basic and bathrooms shared between a few rooms. Perfect if you don't plan to spend much time at the hostel

    Basic lodging, you get what you pay for. Found a cat in my room when I first arrived, cute but not the most hygienic. Dead cockroach in the shower also. Bar and pool just outside the hostel which is cool and close to the main strip. Grand stay but not for too long.

    Great location. Lovely breakfast. Few problems with the room in the beginning but they were easily fixed with the help of the staff- who were lovely and welcoming. Bathroom unclean- limescale everywhere and was smelly. One of the small lockers didn’t work and there was no where to put big luggage but the floor. Room was all concrete and felt quite depressing ... but we did have it to ourselves which was a redeeming factor. Pool still out of use but the beach is a stone throw away.
