    Incredible hostel. Can’t recommend highly enough. So much fun, everyone’s so friendly and welcoming. Drinking games in the evening by the amazing manager then nights out all the time. Lots of organised trips you can go on, beach cleans, snorkelling etc. All the staff are amazing and it’s a great hostel if you’re travelling alone

    This was one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at in a long time. The bedrooms and bathrooms are extremely clean, AC is great in the bedrooms, food is tasty and the staff are very welcoming and inclusive. We ended up extending from 1 night to a week, would highly recommend to anyone visiting Gili T

    Super fun atmosphere. Staff was really welcoming and energetic! Drinking games every night and then everyone goes over to the bars together! Really good place to meet people! Only 3 beds to a room which was so nice, and no bunk beds! Be prepared to get a little wild! Be sure to get on the boat party if you are there on a Wed or Sat, very worth it!

    The hostel is much like hostel and gives you exactly the same feeling. You’ve to walk for good 8 to 8 mins to reach to the hostel from harbour. I took a private room which was spacious and clean. staff is really courteous and welcoming. I got a chance to interact with Andrew he seems a very chill person and helpful too and Rido is a rockstar.

    Staff were nice, plenty of events and it attracts good groups of travellers. The Gili islands has regular power cuts and the hostel did not have a backup generator unlike most of the other places to stay on the island. This means no running water so you can’t as much as flush the toilet. This ruined our stay. We would recommend others stay elsewhere and go to the hostel for the evening events.
