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 two clean, simple and roomy air-con dorms, one with eight beds and one with ten. Metal bunk beds are sturdy, however folk on the top bunks may want to be a little careful, as the safety rail is pretty useless, and bunks are higher than usual.

Clean white linen, personal reading lamps and charge points will make your stay more comfortable. Smallish lockers won’t house big bags but will keep what’s necessary safe, and you’re requested not to keep said bags on the beds (stops the spread of those nasty “BB” critters from other less savoury places you may have stayed), but there’s plenty of room below the bunks.

Clean semi-outdoor ensuites with hot-water showers provide a natty storage cubical for your lotions and potions and the fancy carved bolder washbasin adds a bit Fred Flinstone to the otherwise characterless white tiles. Your stay includes a towel too. A spacious outdoor kitchen / lounge / barbecue area is long lazy summer days personified with cosy built-in seating and a shady garden pavilion.

Beer, coffee, Kombucha, and coconuts are all procurable, and drinking water refills are free anytime. Yoga classes in the garden sala are on offer — 70,000 rupiah for a group or 200,000 for a private lesson and you can salute the sun by yourself anytime you please. Friendly staff can sort you out for surfing and transport too.

Plans are afoot to dig up a section of garden and build a swimming pool, which will make this sweet, chilled hostel even more desirable. Alternatively, for “almost beachfront” (Ok 100 metres away really) with a chilled garden setting, Ole Ole Ollie Homestay is a decent option. If you’d like a little more party mixed with your chill, The Temple Hostel has a great garden and pool and attracts a bit of a social crowd, or if more yoga and even more chill is your scene, get your serenity on at Serenity Eco Guesthouse.
