Despite our expectations we've had an terrible time @ Gili Hostel in Gili Trawangan and would def. not recommend it. First: there was construction work and because of that a lot of dirt in the swimming pool. Second: because of new rules on the island you can not sleep with > 3 pers. in 1 dorm. We were with 4...

The rooms have the same kind of automatic fragrance sprayers as public toilets, so the room never doesn't smell like chemical fragrances. As the hostel is right by a mosque you shouldn't expect to have sleep that isn't uninterrupted by prayers.

When I first came to gili t I did not expect it would have the impact it had on me. This was down to the amazing friends I made through the hostel and also an amazing new family made with the workers and management. The morning breakfast was a great way to meet new people in the chill area on...

Stayed at the hostel for 3 nights. Met a bunch of cool people who were more than willing to share some tips on what to do on the island. They have a really relaxed veranda on the 2nd floor where breakfast is served. They on occasion show movies on the projector. The staff was welcoming and very helpful

The original and the best on the island. Good location. Pretty good facilities. Couple of broken locks here and there. The best vibes and people. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Nat the manager epitomises the friendly and up beat atmosphere. Plenty of Jos.

I stayed 4 nights at Gili Hostel. It was better than other youth hostels I’ve been to. Their rooms have about 8 beds, but no bunk beds there! It’s all placed in a way that makes it very comfortable for a youth hostel. Plus, they have air-conditioning. So pack a warm pajama in case your bed is under the A/C....

I went there on my own and look for stay. The room is spacey and the design is cool. Funky colorfull painting on the floor makes the room not boring They have pool bar and Lava bar which is always busy every night.

Stayed for 2 nights, slept well considering noise, lock on dorm door was broken and people seemed to think our bathroom was a public toilet. Nice layout, cleaned regularly, nice rooftop chill out bar. Might have got unlucky but frequent conversation about drugs, where to get them etc can accompany you in your dorm room. Maintenance work made the place...

The hostel itself was a nice building with a pretty cool rooftop bar and unique dorms, was relatively clean and the beds were comfy. Unfortunately the entrance is slightly off putting at the moment, as the pool bar is currently under maintenance and looks similar to a swamp. There is construction happening to the building on the left which isn't...
