Cafe Locca Hostel is a traditional Balinese-style longhouse block transformed into a small hostel.

A couple of the rooms are dorms, offering a good value bed for the single traveller with the bonus of a swimming pool.

Traditional carved doors and stonework facades cheer up otherwise bland interiors. Air-con dorms are six- or eight-bed, female only or mixed. We only viewed the six-bed female and mixed dorms, furnished with Ikea-style white metal bunk-beds, but we believe the eight-bed dorm sports wooden bunks that are perhaps less wobbly. Beds are made with proper sheets and a blanket, clean but a tad on the grey side. Bunks offer individual power points, but we didn’t see reading lights. Individual lockers are locked by key, and oddly the six-bed dorms were furnished with three mini-fridges, excellent for keeping a coldie in your room, but not sure why they don’t just provide one larger one. Rooms and ensuite hot-water bathrooms are clean enough, just a little grimy in the corners. Two additional toilets are near the pool area if needed. Double and triple rooms are on offer, and although we didn’t view them, staff said they were basically the same as the dorms, in which case much better value could be found elsewhere.

The pacific blue swimming pool is small, but adequate for a dip. Surrounding foliage adds colour, but there’s not much shade. Sun-worshippers are catered for with a handful of lounges. Breakfast is included with the private rooms, but not the dorms, however the share kitchen is well equipped for toasting, zapping and frying. Free drinking water is provided too. The pool and kitchen are excellent for meeting fellow travellers of a mix of ages to head to the beach with or share the cost of a day trip. Or you could just ignore others and log on to the free WiFi.

Cafe Locca Hostel is a five-minute walk to Mertasari Beach and close to some excellent local food — drop into Warung Parahyangan for delicious ikan bakar. If you’re interested in history, pop around the corner for a look at the Blanjong Pillar, Bali’s oldest known artefact. We think Cafe Locca Hostel is a solid backpacker choice. If a pool isn’t high on your list of priorities, check out Ning Homestay or Suwardika Homestay as alternatives. For travellers with a friend in tow, D’Astri Guesthouse and Little Pond Homestay both offer great value doubles and twins with a swimming pool.
