Great food, pool, quiet but sociable, clean, great staff, wifi and good location. The 12 bed dorm was the least dorm-like I've ever stayed in, with private curtains round the bunkbeds. We booked travel here to other places. You could book 2 nights and end up staying 2 weeks.

Hi Amy, I'm glad you had such a pleasant stay. We really want our dorm experience the best in Indonesia as we understand that a good bed and clean sheets is what we need after a lot of travel. We appreciate the kind words. Safe Travels, The Island Team

Stayed here for 2 nights originally then went to Gili Island (which they booked for me and were nice enough to store my things while I was gone) and stayed here again when I got back. My first hostel experience and it was brilliant!

Hi, Nice to see that as your first hostel stay it was with us. I can't guarantee other hotels will be as nice as us (slightly biased) but that's probably why you came back. :) Safe Travels, The Island Team

This was the first stop on my travelling experience and a perfect way to ease you into the trip. Rooms are gorgeous and the beds are super comfy. Everyone's incredibly friendly and got a lovely pool. No complaints on hygene and the showers are nice and powerful. Would 100% come back!!

I have stayed at the Island Hotel for the past 4 nights and it's probably the best hostel I've stayed at. The room and beds are impeccably clean as is the bathroom. I am traveling alone and have met many wonderful people thanks to the several BEAUTIFUL communal areas. There's an infinity pool, cafe, and two rooftop lounges. There's always...

I've stayed at The Island about 14 nights in total during the last year (Oct 2013 and Jan 2014) for different lengths of time spread out over a couple of trips. I've stayed in both a private room and in the downstairs and upstairs dorms during these times. I found the accomodation excellent. The private room was so nice -...

I stayed with my partner for couple days. The hostel is amazing. It's clean, pretty close to Kuta and Seminyak. Good food too. And the staff are friendly. Receptions are very helpful.

I wanted to stay in a nice place for my last night in indonesia and The Island didn't disappoint. The dorm room feels like a private room, especially if - like me - you get one of the beds next to the wall. The bathroom is spacious and clean. If you don't have a towel they can give you one...

This place has been so photo shopped! Photo on internet nothing like room I was supposed to have. Room stunk. No safety deposit box as specified. No drink water no nothing actually. It was so bad that I didn't even stay the night. Got taxi out of there quick smart!

Hi Sandy, We welcome any reviews, but it's even better (and fair) if you're actually a guest at The Island, probably a little more accurate as well. Just to reassure our guests, yes we have drinking water, yes there are safety boxes in all private rooms and yes it smells good. The 94 un-photoshopped traveler photos are from our guests,...

The Island Hotel offers nice and clean accommodations. It is a good place to meet up with other travelers but due to the rather high (yet reasonable) rates it serves the flashpacker market. As mentioned in other reviews before, it can be hard to find if you go there for the first time,since it is located in a small alley...
