I stayed at gili beach bum during my trip to gili t and had the best time! Such a great place to meet people if you are traveling on your own. Lava bar situated at the front of the hostel is really fun with good music and rock and roll bingo on Fridays. Would recommend to any backpackers going to Gili Trawangan!

This is the second time i've stayed at this hostel, the last time being in 2015, and it didn't disappoint. If anything it is even better. Staff were super friendly upon arrival. The artwork in the whole hostel is incredible!! Such a cool place to experience Gili Trawangan! Plus, the partys at LAVA Bar are always fun. Thanks for a great time, awesome atmoshpere, and hopefully see you guys again soon :-)

i had a very bad experience with the gili beach bum hostel, even though the location is perfect, the hostel in itself was quite a let down, the swimming pool was not maintained, the public washrooms were over flowing, the attendant did not pay attention to anything that we had to say, the customer relation person (dont know his name but was an Australian) was not at all warm and welcoming, we only saw him at our check out and did not care about us having a bad experience, we spent 180 US dollars for 3 nights and it was not at all worth it, the room was always dirty, the bed sheets were not ever changed, the ping pong was broken and there was no equipment to play with, the bar was really shady and not well lit, the bartender was only trying to get the Irish women drunk and was not attending to us Indians. there was no security in the hostel our bikes got stolen the first night itself, not at all a good experience for me and my friends. there was no pool party as promised, there were random people who were not guests, lurking around the guest rooms and dorms and anyone could enter and stay the night the management would not even get to know, would not ever recommend this to anyone ever.

You should get down there and just see it on your own. Very cool rooms with amazing murals. Top notch breakfast. And also couldn't forget the pool parties at Lava bar. If you want to chill and also have fun thats your spot.

Really basic hostel. Nothing to shout about. If ur planning to stay in most of the time (which is unlikely if ur booking this hostel) then its a NO NO. Didnt like the idea that its so dim in the room n the bath. The towels were smelling so bad. No offense, but if u would to provide such service then maybe more decent towels? Staffs were 6/10 friendly. Other than that it was a pretty OK place. The LAVA Bar is the bomb! Go to bar fosho.
