The hostel itself has a nice area, with a fun pool. But hard to have a good time with friend from outside hostels. The no guests policy is terrible. Having friends kick out for not being guests is a joke, especially when travelers do not have other places to go other than their hostels to hangout. It’s understandable to have some restrictions to non guests but, not allowing them to use a glass of water or play a game of pool seem absurd. Other than this the hostel has a great common area and decent rooms.
+ For who need to meet other travellers,and hangout till midnight or use the pool for 24 hours. The staff it's quite nice. Great place to hangout. This hostel kind of party hostel cause you could hearing somebody talking loud till late . And no one telling them to be more quite . So if you need to rest from busy day this place it's not for you . Room is nice clean with AC - I found it some toilet/ bathroom got flooding and the dors of bathroom doesn't have lock. I told to the stuff about this, hope they fix as soon as possible.
When i first arrived in Kuta lombok and got to Botchan and we were only planning to stay only like 5 days. My friend left already and I’m still here in Lombok after more than two weeks haha and definitely part of the blame of me still being here is this hostel. Ika and her husband Yuda and all the stuff makes you feel that you’re not away from home, every morning giving you the biggest smiles, delicious pancakes breakfast and amazing juices and food, you could easily stay in the hostel the whole day, chillin on the pool or the hamacks or just in the comfy beds with AC all day long. They owners are doing a great job and I’m pretty sure the hostel is gonna get better and better cause they’re building a massive building for a social area and a new kitchen. Can’t wait to come back here. My home in Lombok for sure.…
Good pool, big room-staff fine. Far from town. Need a bike for this location. Room was fine but no privacy and long queue for bathroom. Toilet kept getting blocked. Bathroom was cleaned regularly but has a funky smell. Stayed here 3nights 2was enough. No transport around so either rent a dangerous moped or walk which is far dusty and hot. Don't like pancakes glutenous and thick. Not much atmosphere can't get a beer at the bar or any alcohol. No group tours everything private hard for solo
I was travelling with some friends through Indonesia and had the chance the stop in this amazing hostel. The staff is trying to please you as much as possible and they are so friendly ! There is a really nice pool and the rooms are quite big and the bathroom is really nice (if you stay in a room of 7). So easy to socialize as well, I met some really nice people there. Highly recommended !!!
