Backpackers Gili Trawangan Reviews
Excellent, new hostel. Nov 04, 2012
So after you've got off the boat to Gili Trawangan from Padang Bai you'll be jumped on immediately by people trying to sell hotel rooms. What you'll find quite quickly is that there are some really big hotels there but otherwise it's mainly home stays, but this place is the first 'hostel' on the island and it's pretty good too.
Basically, when you get off the boat you need to take a right down the main street (there's only one street- so you can't get too lost!!) and then you'll see a sign for it - the sign's quite random, (it asks whether you're sick of listening to Rihanna) but then you take a right there and you've arrived, it's not even a 10-min walk.
From what I can remember the dorms are all 8-people and they have en suite toilet/shower room. There's a bar and they play less mainstream music, as it’s a new hostel the facilities are brand new and me and my friend had the dorm to ourselves, they also have wi-fi and a couple of places where you can sit and enjoy it. The main beach is literally a couple of minutes away and staff are a lot of fun.
