Close to uluwatu surf and temple

Really friendly staff with good English and nice happy and helpful attitude
We were worried that it would be too far from the beach and temple. It was a nice walk to both and we were carrying a baby. 15 mins to beach and 20 to temple. This is the only place I dare ride a scooter on the road as they are fairly tame and deserted compared to the rest of Bali. Scooter rentals are just next door for $5US dollars per day if you don't want to walk. The scooters also have surf racks on them if you have your board. They have very little petrol in them but if you run out, just buy a vodka bottle with petrol in it from the many side of the road stands displaying it. The gong was a good deal and satria bungalows is directly across the street down a little dirt road if gong doesn't have enough rooms. My two sisters stayed there. The staff at the hotel were fantastic, smart, talkative and informative. Their English is quite good and the conversation about culture and religion were enlightening. This is a bit hard to find as are most of the bungalows, since there are so many. The room was clean and a mosquito net was provided. The whole bathroom was concrete including the sink. The bed was comfortable.

Family budget hotel

Friendly, cozy, good atmosphere
This is a friendly nice backpacker style hotel, nothing fancy but really cozy and good atmosphere. There is about 15 min walking distance to the very good surf beach. A small restaurant up from but we didn't eat there as there are so many options around with great views and food. Can gladly recommend this hotel

easy to find basic hotel near temple & beaches

the location, pool, & people: the balinese family running the place as well as the international traveller group
perfect location, nice crowd, nice pool, but no air conditioning (rainy season it would have been nice) or towels in the room. missed the towel!

Pleasant but basic, staff friendly & VERY relaxed

Quiet, remote, good food in and around
If you're looking for a place to escape for a few days, hang out without being bothered and keep things simple then look no further. As backpackers, this place was not ideal...we stayed three nights and wanted to see as much as possible in that time. The location is very out of the way, not near much besides the Firedance, which is well worth a look. Even an ATM is a trek away. Staff were nice but were quite tardy, again this meant lost time for us. We had to ask several times for room service/ towels and there was only one person working there who could book a boat to Gili so we had to wait around for a couple of hours one night for her to come back. You don't need to go far for food, the food in The Gong is also fine.

The Gong is worth every dollar.

price, people, location
I really enjoyed staying here. It felt like a proper road trip, friends together, beach holiday. The staff were super friendly and helpful. I was worried about the cold water BUT the water wasn't really that cold anyway and it was probably better for me when I stepped out of the shower because it was so warm anyway. I will definitely stay here again - there isn't many rooms so I will be disappointed if it gets popular and I can't get a room though.

Great family run hotel. Couldn't be more helpful

Friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Feeling of well being
The family run hotel was excellent. It exudes an ambience of traditional Balinese home stays in a beautiful garden setting with a lovely pool. The staff were extremely helpful and the food delicious. Great value for money. We will be back!
