The Island Bali

Overpriced flashpacker joint

What we say: 2.5 stars

We really wanted to like this place, but it just doesn't represent good value at all. While the two 12-bed dorms are expensive for what they are, the deluxe and loft configured doubles are astoundingly poor value. That said, it's a very popular place and there's a friendly hostel-like vibe to the place, but when you're paying 750,000 rupiah for a box-like double room with no hot water and non-existent WiFi coverage, there's not a lot to be happy about. On the plus side, the common area cum restaurant is good and sociable and there's also a very pleasant roof top bar and up higher still a bale, both of which may offer ideal sunset relaxation spots. There is a small pool, but we were a bit put off by other guests standing in it for hours on end drinking Bintangs. If the prices don't bother you and you'd like a social gap-year kind of place, then this will probably be right on the money for you — they've received glowing reviews from other guests on HostelWorld, but if it strikes you as a bit on the pricey side, we'd suggest elsewhere. It's a good 15 minute walk to the beach from here.
