Accommodation

With literally hundreds of places to stay in Canggu, it is all about cutting the wheat from the chaff and we've broken our pick of the crop out into selections for hostels, surf stays, yoga camps, flashpacker/midrange choices, family options and a clutch of higher-end digs.




Hostels in Canggu

Just because you’re after a comfy dorm bed doesn’t mean you need to forgo a turquoise swimming pool and perhaps a ricefield view. Here are our pick of the many hostels in Canggu.


Jalan Raya Semat
Under 150,000 Rp
The Project Hostel and Cafe
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp
Jalan Raya Semat
T: (0813) 3890 8418

Veiled behind a rustic street-front cafe on busy Jalan Raya Semat, The Project Hostel oozes charm by the bucketload. Cute Javanese wooden Joglo- and Gladak-style antique houses edge a terrific decent-sized pool which takes up most of the open grounds. The three four-bed, mixed, air-con dorms are smallish but plenty roomy enough that you won’t be tripping over each other. Sturdy wooden bunks... Read our full review of The Project Hostel and Cafe.

On the quiet side of Canggu, Ehomestay offers island vibes in a breezy bamboo and wooden structure. Behind a sliding blue wooden gate with “Trojan horse” wheels a small grassy courtyard, guarded by barking, but friendly watch dogs (we’re informed they don’t bark once they get to know you), EHomestay is home to the open double-storey structure that houses a dorm upstairs and the...

Farmer’s Yard Hostel
Backpacker - Under 150,000 Rp
7C Gang Jepun, Jalan Pantai Berawa
T: (0812) 3788 4444

The somewhat quirky Farmer’s Yard Hostel started life not as a hostel, but as a community permaculture garden project, and that remains its prime purpose. “Putting an end to carless tourism” is their motto, and the idea is that if you stay here, you’ll be prepared to do a bit of work in the garden, and become part of the local Balinese community (even for a little while)—it...

In the midst of Balinese bucolic beauty, overlooking (hopefully not the last of) Canggu’s rice fields, The Farm Hostel, offers social spaces and chill zones, a clean and comfy rest, swimming pool and walking encyclopaedias of local knowledge, AKA the staff. This “boutique hostel” (read pricier than a cheap homestay) is housed in a large open-plan Joglo (antique Javanese house), and at... Read our full review of The Farm Hostel.

The large leafy garden at The Hideout Hostel is the perfect sanctuary to, well, hideout and swing in a hammock, have a stretch in the yoga sala or just chill with the other guests in one of the assorted lounges at this easy-going hostel after your day in the surf. Sheltered in a suburban side street, but only about a kilometre to the beach, The Hideout Hostel occupies a converted house with... Read our full review of The Hideout Hostel.

Surf stays in Canggu

Like Kuta and Legian further south, Canggu attracts a significant segment of the surfer set, who’ve been tempted by Canggu’s slightly less crowded waves and a comfortable social scene. While many places to stay offer board hire, the following were some of our favourites.


Jalan Munduk Catu

Ayok Stay and Surf

Jalan Munduk Catu

Ayok Stay and Surf is a simple, stylish family-run guesthouse, minutes walk to the beach—word is Ayok and his dad are top blokes, and patient and funny surf instructors too (surf lessons 350,000 rupiah for two hours), but we only met the very friendly staff. The double-storey guesthouse is enclosed in a tiny private garden next door to the family home. There’s no pool, but really the sea... Read our full review of Ayok Stay and Surf.

Just a short stroll to some pumping waves, Berawa Beach Surf Stay is a mellow and friendly homestay, perfect for post surf chilling. A mix of comfortable three-bed “shared rooms” (we’d call them dorms), twins and doubles, two appealing swimming pools plus a terrific communal lounge and rooftop deck entice you to kick back and let the worries of the world disappear like an ebb tide.

Want to surf? Want to stretch? Solid Surf House offer package deals for bed-and-breakfast, surfing (for beginners and all levels), and yoga. So if you’d like to stay in their lovely rooms, you’ll have to sign up for the whole deal.

22 Jalan Kubu Manyar

The appealing designer beach-house style and laid-back ambiance at The Chillhouse certainly taps into the idea of the “tropical lifestyle retreat” they market themselves as—the emphasis is on surfing, but mountain biking, yoga and spa packages are all up for grabs, made even more desirable with good food, a comfy bed and the opportunity to socialise and make new friends.

Yoga retreats in Canggu

While plenty of places offer some options for yoga, here are three places to stay in Canggu that are truly dedicated to yoga.

Samadi
Midrange - 400,000 to 1,000,000 Rp
39 Jalan Padang Linjong
T: (0812) 3831 2505

Samadi describe themselves as a “centre for radical wellbeing and self-empowerment” and translated from New(age)speak we believe that means they do yoga, practice alternative therapies, serve healthy food and search for the meaning of life and happiness—they also offer some rather delightful accommodation. This popular centre has expanded to Samaditoo up the road, with more rooms and a... Read our full review of Samadi.

Gang Pucuk Merah, Jalan Raya Semat

Secluded in the serene mini-jungle that is Rimba Bird Guesthouse, ears filled with birdsong, and it’s hard to believe you’re in the busy part of Canggu. Tucked down a laneway off Jalan Raya Semat, beyond a parking area, a moss-covered gateway opens to a smallish, but splendid swimming pool. Edging the car park and extending to the pool, a long, narrow open-air white-tiled building houses... Read our full review of Rimba Bird.

If you’re quick, you may be among the first guests at A7 Guesthouse as it hadn’t quite opened the doors when we had a look-see in late February 2017. Just a stone’s throw from the sand and waves, A7’s seven rooms occupy a double-story block, and we’d give them an A too.

8B Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong
T: (0878) 6031 6413

For the some of the most charming and cosy budget rooms in Canggu, look no further than Canggu Stay. It’s pretty much room only—the sole facility is a share kitchen, there’s no garden, no pool, and no frills, but this is far from primitive. For a single traveller on a budget not into the hostel scene this is the best deal in town, although you’ll probably have to hang out at cafe’s... Read our full review of Canggu Stay.

We were impressed with the sweet cottages and welcoming staff at Come Back Guesthouse when we first popped in in February 2017, but disappointed to find they were fully booked—a good sign as they were newly opened in late 2016.

If being close to the beach is not as important as a good deal and a fabulous view, Grandpa Resort is worth a gander as it’s one of Canggu’s best value guesthouses and besides, it is just a 15 minute ride to the surf. It’s actually the location that gives Grandpa Resort the edge, the imposing triple-storey block is, to be honest, a blot on the landscape and sticks out like the...

Fancypants in Canggu

Canggu is none too shabby when it comes to the high end—you can easily spend thousands of dollars a night if you’d like, but you know what? You don’t need to. Here are three outstanding upper range places to stay in Canggu, each with its own character.

Lavish antique-filled and sublime, the opulent beachfront Hotel Tugu Bali is our top pick in Canggu.
