Kirsty Nicol thinks…

"The room set up means that you don't feel like you are all on top of each other. It felt very sociable and we easily got chatting to fellow travellers. The location is great - everything is within…"

Welcome to Gili Beach Bum Hotel, formally known as Gili Hostel. We were established in October 2012 and due to recent changes and new island rules we are now known as Gili Beach Bum Hotel.
We still offer the same funky, fun and good atmosphere that we are known for, however with a little twist to the rooms. We now offer 7 spacious rooms that sleep three people each (our occupancy is thus very limited - so make sure o book your space quickly). The rooms are large and spacious so you will have plenty of space. Gili Beach Bum Hotel has a roof top bar, a funky pool bar and a beach bar called LAVA. Breakfast is included as well as Free WiFi.

We are situated less than 20 metres from the beach on the idyllic island paradise of Gili Trawangan. Our mantra is good music, good people, cool vibes!

Designed by travelers for travelers, Gili Hostel aims to create the perfect environment for backpacking newbies and veterans alike, to make connections, swap stories and share a rooftop Bintang. Read more

About Gili Beach Bum Hotel (formally Gili Hostel)

Gili Beach Bum is a uniquely designed building, the collaborative vision of its 5 owners who met on the island over 5 years ago and couldn't bring themselves to leave.

We have seven dormitories, opening out onto a tropical garden. Up on the roof, nestled amongst the trees, lies a sprawling chill out area and fully stocked bar. Equipped with WIFI, you can enjoy your daily breakfast, an afternoon snooze, an ice cold Bintang, and our all-day Sunday movie marathons. It is the perfect spot to chill out. Happy hour is offered every night at the rooftop bar and this is a great way to meet and socialize with other travelers before heading out to the next party spot.

Our pool bar in the front offers both crazy parties as well as relaxed, chilled vibes during the day. Our newest edition to the hostel is our beach bar called LAVA. Known as the cool, pre-drinking spot on the island. LAVA offers delicious cocktails and smoothies at reasonable prices, a cozy fire pit as well as a projector screening funky videos to keep your eyes busy.

We wanted to finally bring the hostel-ing experience that so many of us have known and loved, to our beautiful island. If your aim is to meet people with whom you truly connect and share experience with then the the hostel is for you. We have all the facilities available to make that happen. Come as a stranger, leave as a friend!

Accommodation Information

Gili Beach Bum Hotel consists of 7 dormitories sleeping 21 in total. All linen and bed sheets are included.
In keeping with the rest of the building, the traditional bunk bed design has been laid to rest. (Meaning no more sleepless nights staring up at a strangers bum!)

All rooms are air conditioned and open up onto a communal decking area.

Our bathrooms have fresh water and our showers are both hot and cold.

We are currently in the process of constructing more single rooms and four bed room dorms in the near future so please keep this in mind.

Location Information

We are situated just north of the harbour on the main beach road! Roughly in the middle of the beach road, we get the best of both worlds with the busiest night life just a few minutes south and the best beach bars and snorkeling 2 minutes walk south. Whether you want to paddle board around the island, dive or snorkel or just have a few drinks on the beach, its either on our doorstep or just a 3 minute walk away. We are situated 20 metres from the best snorkeling beach on the island were you can snorkel with turtles as well as relax with the usual bronzed bikini clad travellers. The turtle sanctuary is also just a few metres down the road along with Gili Trawangan's famous Sama sama reggae bar.
