The Gili Air Hostel is a small, tightly run hostel just a five-minute walk from the beach. The facilities are spacious, clean and well-equipped for backpackers who desire affordable yet comfortable accommodation. Gili Air is the smallest of the three Gili Islands of Indonesia meaning that you are never far from a spectacular coastline. The hostel provides a great base to explore the rest of the island and hopefully make some new friends during your stay.
Relax in a hammock after a decent night’s rest
The dormitory buildings are joglos, authentic Javanese houses with unique roof architecture, and all have been constructed from recycled materials. The facilities are quite new as the hostel opened in July 2014. All rooms have effective air conditioning and western style bathrooms with hot water available 24 hours a day. There are three standard dorm rooms each with six beds each. All are single beds, no bunk-beds, which makes for a spacious and comfortable sleeping environment. Each bed has its own power point, nightlight and secure locker provided underneath meaning you don’t have to fight with your roommates over charging your laptop or storing your belongings.
Unbeatable value for money
Breakfast is provided for guests every morning until 10 am. Options include banana pancakes or freshly made omelettes plus tea and coffee. Extra facilities include the cow bar, which is open daily, several hammocks and bean bags for your relaxation and a climbing wall if you feel like a challenge. The porch areas by each building are a great spot for chilling out with a book or chatting to your fellow travellers.
