We booked this hostel through Agoda when forwarded by Tripadvisor and was happy that from the pictures I got a half decent place.
On our arrival they said that the room was not available and they instead blamed it on someone else and instead tried to place us in another hotel round the corner that was far worse and lesser money.
In the end they found us a bed and all three of us slept in a double bed. The room was alright… and the bathroom wasnt nice, but we had arrived so late at night that we just wanted to sleep and passed out.
In the morning we awoke and decided we would instead find somewhere else.
There was a nice part to the hotel however, the pool looked amazing and the grounds in the light looked pretty and the typical Bali atmosphere. The area was full of young couples and families with a mix of Indonesian and Aussie favourites.
All the room were nicely done, if a tad plain and there was a good buzz, but it was very noisy because of the incessant traffic along Poppies 2.
Overall, I was not impressed with the front counter area or service and things went downhill from there. It was a shame, as the hostel could have been amazing with a paint job, some cleaning and better customer service.
