    Absolutely amazing! Super fun hostel, great atmosphere. All of the staff from cleaning to kitchen and bar etc are fantastic! Great rooms with real spread out feel so you aren’t crammed in. Great toilets and showers constantly cleaned. Night atmosphere is great with no one being left out. Fun games and great management! 10/10 would recommend and definitely going back!

    Awesome place to stay once again. Beds are large and comfortable, rooms are perfect temperature throughout the day. Showers/Bathrooms are clean, large and have good pressure. Location is a short stroll to everything. It's certainly a party hostel but things shut down at 10 so can still chill and have a nice sleep if that's what you need. Best part though is the staff, all top notch and make sure that everyone is involved and has a lot of fun.

    Stayed 3 nights at my mates place. It was low season which means Gili T is average at best. Would be much better in high season especially for party hostels. Pros: Great staff Great private room Everyone gets together between 7-10pm for drinking games then to jungle bar Good location near main harbour Cons: No pool, so hard to hang out in day as it's so hot Always starting at jungle bar is repetitive Would of liked some group day activities to get to know more people

    Well this was kind of a bummer! It was extremely crowded and loud. We are party people but this was horrible. People we're having a go at it publicly , alcohol was thrown around everywhere, people we're screaming like crazy, licking tables. It was insane. We heard that a lot of people were drunk and high so that's why they acted so crazy. Place could have been cleaner. We left after one night. Staff was ok and nice. You can rent bikes which is fun. There was no pool.

    The hostel doesn't have space where travellers can relax and socialize. The surroundings remind of a prison jail. The tables in the middle cannot be used during the heat ...there is no shades ..nowhere to hide from the sun. The crowd plays beer pong every night. People don't stay in the hostel during the day. The staff was consideraten(they are doing what they can given the restricted facilities). I was disappointed given the amount of positive reviews here. But definitely I wouldnt say there.
