    We loved our stay at Gili castle. Rooms were perfect and clean. Super handy location and staff that were super helpful. Was good to chill out and have a few drinks and meet other travellers but could also crash early if need be. Had the best pool and the rock climbing wall made it. 100% recommend.

    Went there purely for the rock climbing wall and ended up getting a lot more. Hostel is very spacious with a nice pool and the wall. Long table for all to sit and play game and socialise. Breakfast included is tip top and if not satisfied spend a bit of cash and pay for a bigger one. All staff were very friendly, smiley and helpful. Also having the Gili Mansion down the road means your combined and always have a good crowd. Also short walk to beach and bars. Great stay would highly recommend.

    Stayed at Gili Castle over Christmas and had the best time! The staff are all so friendly and there’s a really nice vibe around the place. The pool is great and definitely go to one of their pool parties if you have a chance! Very convenient location literally a 5 minute walk from the main strip where the beach and bars are. The rooms itself are very simple, thin blanket on the bed but who spends all their time in their room anyway!

    Great pool, good staff. Overall good cleaning, but you have to keep asking for toilet paper all the time. Good environment for meeting people, they provide tours, and there’s a big table where you can meet everybody. After 11 PM everybody goes to party so it gets quiet if you want to sleep, but if you want to party, there’s an option everyday.

    definitely the place to be on Gili T if you want a party. The reps are great at organising nights out and the boat parties are amazing. Good sized rooms, especially as there's only 3 of you to a dorm, plus the rock climbing wall over the pool is amazing!

    Good hostel for partying at gili. Not the greatest facilities when it comes to rooms and cleanliness. But they do the job. Love how the staff combines events with the other hostel. Great place to meet tons of people. And super nice bar prices!
