Come and get wild or chill with us!!! Not every day is a crazy day, but it's you the guest who decides how crazy it gets. Our amazing bar staff will be there to top you up. See the bottom for events we host.

Hang ten with our full-time surf instructor and catch some epic waves. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned wave warrior, our pro instructor will have you carving up the waves and catching killer rides in no time. Book your session and get ready to experience the pure stoke of surfing in paradise!

SLEEP IN STYLE: Whether you're seeking budget-friendly bunks (triple, female-only, and mixed dorms) or king-sized bunk bed luxury, What The Duck has your perfect haven. All dorms boast top-notch amenities like air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms/showers, lockers, individual bedside lamps, shelves, and worldwide plug sockets for comfort and convenience. Each bed even has curtains for maximum privacy.

ESCAPE AND UNWIND: Ditch the crowds and find serenity in our tranquil garden oasis, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Batu Bolong's main drag. Unwind on the massive sunset balcony, beanbags at the ready, as you sip a cocktail and watch the sky transform into a fiery masterpiece.

UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE: But the real gem lies below. Dive into our sparkling pool, fringed by lush tropical greenery that's Instagram-worthy from every angle. We pride ourselves on fostering connections and offering various spaces designed for socialising and relaxation. Whether you prefer lounging on the ultra-comfy corner sofa adorned with funky cushions or sinking into one of our giant beanbags, there's a spot for everyone. Mingle with fellow travellers, swapping stories and sharing experiences as you enjoy a refreshing drink from our bar. And when hunger strikes, indulge in the delectable delights served from our pleasant menu.

With 36 beds, What The Duck offers the perfect Canggu escape for solo surfers, social butterflies, and everyone in between. Book your stay and experience the magic for yourself!

Hostel was super gezellig! De sfeer is fijn en het personeel super lief. Ik raad je wel aan een 4 of 8 persoons dorm te kiezen, de dorm met 9 personen heeft een bunk bed die 3 hoog is waardoor het een vrij hoge klim is, vooral na t uitgaan 😉
