House of D16 Art Hostel is a bit of a mouthful, and also a bit of a walk (2km) to the main gated resort area of Nusa Dua, but the views and comfort of this congenial art-filled pocket-friendly hostel make it a terrific backpacker choice.

Occupying a double-story block high on the hill overlooking Nusa Dua, the hostel offers four- and six-bed air-con single gender dorms with hot-water ensuite bathrooms, a small swimming pool and even throws in breakfast to the bargain (we believe the coffee is excellent too—so good they have bags for sale).

Bunks are simple.

Spacious and clean tiled dorms enjoy towering ceilings and glass panelled French doors that open to a shared, but sectioned furnished balcony that offers a fabulous view across to Nusa Penida. The rooms each provide solid wooden bunks, with two single beds occupying a semi-private mezzanine level above the bathroom. Bunks offer lockable draws below, but we didn’t see any on the single beds, though there’s ample room to store your bags. Bedding is comfortable and clean, with a bottom sheet and colourful covers provided. The bunks don’t have personal lighting or power, but don’t worry there are sockets in the rooms to charge your devices.

We noticed a full-length mirror in one of the female dorms, but as we didn’t view the male dorm, guys we don’t know if you’ll be looking your best when you leave. Bathrooms are old and stained, but clean and are a bit of a mixed bag, some with two shower cubicles and toilet all in the same room others with separate facilities, but it is all rather “home style” than sterile hostel style. Towels and soap are not provided, so bring your own.

Aside from the balcony, the hostel is dotted with comfortable communal areas, with most of the walls covered in paintings, hence the name—like a mini-gallery! The communal kitchen is the hub of the hostel with a long dining table and comfy lounges. To the side of the reception area, is what looks like band camp—we counted six guitars and apparently the staff are rather musically talented—you don’t have to go far for entertainment! The swimming pool is smallish and doesn’t get a lot of sun, so can be a bit cold, but refreshing after you’ve walked up the hill to the hostel!

Staff are bend over backwards friendly with good English, heck we even checked in immediately and we are not fans of sharing a bathroom! We like the friendly vibe, spacious rooms and gorgeous views, and though it’s a little tucked away in the suburbs is an excellent option.

If you’d prefer your own room (and bathroom) consider the very friendly Sari Rooms Bed and Breakfast, although this is just a room and the only communal area is the attached restaurant or for a pool and hotel-like experience the unimaginatively named Cheap Hotel, both in Tanjung Benoa.
