Gili Beach Bum hotel is a very cool hostel and the pool parties are the best! We arrived and there was a pool party going on in the pool bar. They have a pizza pool party every Tuesday where guests get free pizza if you jump into the pool and join the party. We met most people from the hostel...

Since a lot of other hostels were full when I got there, I ended up at Gili Beach Bum. Some of the rooms are really small. My dorm had no locks on the bathroom. The shower was weak and didnt have hot water. Even though the hostel needs a bit fix, I was most disappointed that it didnt have that...

Basic accommodation on Gili T but would still recommend. Breakfast was included but very small- coffee or juice, 2 slices of water melon and 1 pancake. Shower/ toilet area shared with next room along. 'Pool' was unusual- bar area and didn't look inviting. very close to the beach though and on the main street- lots of activities near by- paddle...

Gili Beach Bum Hotel (as its now called) is an awesome place! If you're looking for hostel style accommodation it is in the top three on the island! Plus its home to Lava bar which is the pre-gaming party bar, it's where everyone comes first before heading out so perfect place if you're looking to meet people! Even if you're...

Great location, close to the action but far away enough to gain some seclusion. The rooms were very comfortable, and the showering facilities were adequate (even though they were partly outside). The pool contained far too much chlorine, and was not great for swimming, but provided a good bar environment. Breakfast was not substantial, but tasty nevertheless.

Great location, right in the centre. Be prepared to hear a lot of noise from the bar across the road (at least when you're sleeping in the 'new' building). Aircon was working great, rooms were pretty okay, had lockers big enough for your backpack. Wifi wasn't that good in the beginning, last day it changed and was really good. Beds...

A really artsy and creative backpackers. Andy has done a great job designing the place. The layout and style of this is one of a kind. the upstairs roof is a great hangout space to relax and lounge, plus the pool is quality and sociable. Recommended highly.
