    One of the best hostels I have stayed in . Atmosphere is fantastic and a great place to meet people. Dorms are really nice too - only 3 beds in each room, massive locker / cupboard, plenty of charging points, really nice bathrooms. Doesn’t have a pool but doesn’t need one with the beach so close by!

    I had a great time! They do a really good job at involving everyone and socializing. Clean facility, comfortable beds, great drinks and excellent staff. The only negative thing I can think about is that breakfast can use some work, it was very basic and bland.

    Wowza, great place. Great for solo or group travelers that want a social experience. Ryan, in particular, was very professional when he needed to be but loved a boogie when it was appropriate

    My Mates Place is by far the BEST hostel in Indonesia!! This is my 4th time staying here and I wouldn’t choose anywhere else! (I’m a regular every 6 months! Haha) If your travelling alone this is the perfect place to socialise and meet people from all over the world! The staff are amazing and so helpful and friendly! Also a big shout out to my man Andrew for being the life and soul of the party... the ultimate drinking games master! Haha The rooms are immaculate and the air con is amazing!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at My Mates and will definitely be back! From the moment we walked in the door we felt so welcomed by the friendly staff. Andrew really gets the vibes going every night with social drinking games, the atmosphere here really can’t be beaten. People from other hostels come here for pres prior to heading out. Good cooked breakfast! Rooms were very clean. There isn’t a pool but that’s because the fund of money for it was donated following the August 2018 earthquake.

    Party hostel full of young people. I wasn't much in the mood for partying and it was still okay. At 10pm the staff takes everyone out to a bar/club and you can sleep in tranquility. Be aware people will start coming back around 2am.
