    Great hostel, it’s a party hostel so if you can’t deal with random people drinking over there don’t stay there. Nonetheless, the party ends at 11pm and everyone will go to the bars together, which is quite nice. Super easy to meet people and have a good time. I was so proud when I made it to the top of the climbing wall 😁

    One of my favourite places we stayed on our trip. The atmosphere is so friendly and sociable; we met so many new friends. Gili T became my favourite place we visited because of this. Facilities were good value for money.

    I only stayed here one night but from what I could tell it’s the perfect hostel if you’re looking for a super social party vibe, if you’re a solo traveler this is perfect for you, everyone passing though is looking for a good time, the rooms aren’t the best, but I only really slept there. Super central, great price, cool pool area with rock climbing wall. Overall definitely recommend.

    Booked the deluxe double room and to my disappointment the room looked nothing like the pictures shown. Shared accom seemed cleaner to my surprise. Tiny room cannot open up suitcase on floor. Had a cockroach in my headboard, towel/sheets with stains and cold shower. Light sleepers you will be woken up at 5am due to daily prayers at mosque next door. Gili castle is perfect for meeting new people, daily events/trips they organised are very fun. It is a buzzing environment, staff are helpful also.

    Castle was nice enough and lovely people. Atmosphere wasn’t as I expected with the castle often being empty.

    Private room for 2 was worse than the dorms of 3, mouldy ceiling and uncomfortable beds, right next to mosque so 5am calls wake you up. But perfect for 2 nights max if you’re going out and if you’re drunk you can sleep through it. Pool is nice and it’s social

    Not a huge fan of the accomodation to be honest. Room was not particularly clean, was very basic, cold shower, and worn/torn sheets. This was in a private room. For the amount charged I would expect moreAnd I found accomodation near by which was much nicer and closer to the beach at Gilli Divers. Having said that the atmosphere is cool and suitable for a solo traveller and the western staff are always keen to get a party going.

    Arrived here expecting it to be a lot more buzzing but the vibe was just not that great. The staff don’t smile and arnt very helpful. The toilet facilities arnt the best. The room was cold and tbf seemed abit like a dungeon so fits the theme well. The best thing about the hostel is the climbing wall which is actaully decent. ....................................................,,...................................................................................:...........::.:::::::::::::::::::::
