Welcome to the Gili Island's first and only backpackers hostel. We are a brand new hostel with 7 dormitories and a roof top bar situated less than 20metres from the beach on the idyllic island paradise of Gili Trawangan. Our mantra is good music, good people, cold beer!

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 Hostel

Gili Hostel 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 setting complete with decking and banana trees. We have even made a takro/volleyball court in the front garden for those less partial to lounging on the beach. Plans are already underway to build a pool bar and lounge area on the beach front in the new year.

Up on the roof, nestled amongst the trees, lies a sprawling chill out area and fully stocked bar. Here you can enjoy rooftop yoga, an afternoon snooze or watch a movie in our open air cinema.
Trawangan kicks off in the evenings due to its famous party nights and relaxed attitude. We wanted our rooftop bar to be the perfect warm up spot, so we kept the drinks cheap, the music good and the beers cold. We serve a free breakfast every morning in the same setting, the perfect place to stave off a hangover. (It's even served until 11 so you can get some shut eye!) We also offer dinner options with pizza nights and other themed evenings.

Between them, our local and western staff are a wealth of knowledge on Lombok, the Gilis and the surrounding islands. We can help with anything from pointing to the best sunset spot, to booking Volcano treks and snorkel trips. ( All advice on the house of course!)

We offer WIFI, a book exchange, and regular group activities and evening events. Transport to almost anywhere can also be arranged, just ask one of the Gili Hostel crew. Whatever you want to do on the Gilis or when you move on, we can help. ( We arrived here with backpacks on ourselves remember!)

We wanted to finally bring the hostel-ing experience that so many of us have known and loved, to our beautiful island. We hope you enjoy.

Accommodation Information

Gili Hostel consists of 7 dormitories sleeping 49 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!)

Each room has a mezzanine level sleeping two, and a lower level sleeping 5. Sleeping arrangements are spacious, each bed complete with its own secure locker, power source and reading light. All rooms are air conditioned and open up onto a communal decking area.

We admit, we got a little carried away when designing the bathrooms. We installed 24 hour Hot water showers, a luxury virtually unheard of on our little island! Hey, its hard work carrying around a backpack.

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.
