We really enjoyed our stay at Gili Castle/Gili Manson. The atmosphere was amazing. There is enough to do here, you will meet a lot of people and if you want to party it’s the right place for you. It has a big swimming pool with open bar. This island offers also a lot of

It is a Sweet spot. Common areas but unfortunately Rude staff. I got racist comments from the guys at reception. They don't care if you are having a good experience or not once you already booked and pay. Very Small rooms

Me and my friends really enjoyed this hostel. We had some daytime party by the pool and got to know some cool people. We booked direct with Gili Castle and this allowed so to take part of their dive deal that they do to get discount on the room. This hostel is in a good location

I was staying here for one week. I am travelling alone so it was cool to stay in a big room with others. The best thing in my opinion is the vibes at the hostel. Everyone is so friendly and happy, the staff and management was so helpful when i asked for something. Everyone will

Response from Gili_Castle, Manager at Gili Castle
Responded 18 Sep 2018
Hello Marc F, We are sorry your experience was not up to your expectations. If there was a miscommunication about your food order, I'm sorry that it was not dealt with appropriately. But I think it's unfair of you to say the our staff "has the nerve" to speak in their local language and assume they are speaking about you. You are in Indonesia and they will speak their own language to each other because it's easier for them to communicate that way. If you decided to leave early on your own, it clearly states in our cancellation policy that with under 24 hours notice there is no refund, under 48 hours notice 50% refund and over 48 hours notice 100% refund. If you left 1-2 days early then you are correct, you would not get your money back because we can not guarantee that the room will be re-booked on such short notice. I hope this helps clarify some of the points you made. We wish you all the best in your future travels. Thank you, The Gili Castle Team
