Hostel Hopper: Gili Orchid Guesthouse, Gili Trawangan

Breakfast on our private terrace, Gili Trawangan

Before starting my latest Hostel Hopper post I just wanted to share how surprised I am with the standard of accommodation in Indonesia. For the same price as two beds in a hostel in Thailand we’ve been staying in AC doubles. Loving it! Anyway read on to hear all about my lovely stay on Gili Trawangan.

We checked in at around 11am – well before the advertised 1pm check in time. But our room was ready and the lovely staff had no issue welcoming us earlier. After dropping our bags in the room we had a knock on our window. Welcome drinks on our private terrace and a chat with the guys working about where to go and what to see on the island. Super friendly staff, helpful and very attentive.

Pros
Breakfast included and served on your private terrace
Great location – 5 mins walk to the Main Street of Gili Trawangan
Excellent room standards: super clean, towels and flowers on bed on arrival
Wonderful staff

Cons
Genuinely couldn’t complain about anything!
Only slight downside is the noise from the nearby mosque, can’t be helped and earplugs were provided
