Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 2 nights in a shared dorm and it was very nice. The dorms have lockers and it is very close to the beach and the main street of Sanur. Very chilling atmosphere and friendly people.

Yeah, this hostel is in a quiet part of town, don't get me wrong you do have a bar nearby with live music you can get to, but that is about it. Anyhow, close to the beach, 15min walk, 2min walk to a really cheap place with local food, you can easily live of 6 dollars a day (breakfast, lunch,...

Stayed for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it. Easy to meet people and only a short walk to the beach. Sometimes it was a bit noisy as a few of the dorm rooms are joined but that's standard when in hostels. Would definitely recommend this place.

Really close to Sanur beach- the beach just cross the main road. Be aware during road crosssing. The vehicles moving pretty fast. This place quite isolated from the main road, but worry not, the owner of the hostel will guide you through. Save the phone number in your contact list, so that you won't miss the place.

This place is a very ideal for a backpacker. Although it has a backpacker budget, it packs with a quaint environment, a pool, a shared media center and offers free tea and coffee all day. The owner's wife also manages it and can help you how to go around, what places to see near Sanur or Bali in general. It...
