“old faithful Gora lives up to its reputation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Ive heard a lot about The Gora from surfer travellers that have visited Kuta, and I was very excited to finally get to experience it for myself!

The rooms are very basic - but its really everything you need: a comfy bed, a ceiling fan, a shower and a toilet... sometimes you even get lucky and get a closet!

Despite my low expectations, they are actually pretty clean - so unless youre a prissy-lil-missy, you will feel right at home!

Each room has a "patio" with chairs and a towel drying rack.

Definitely pay a little extra and get the room on the pool

the pool is AWESOME! one of the best pools I saw in Bali, and theres always loads of cool young people hanging out, sometimes even developing into an impromptu pool party.

They sell drinks and snacks poolside, although they dont seem to care if you bring your own in from the mini-mart next door.

we paid around Rp 200,000 per night, which is less than $20 US, and less than $10 US each.
oh - and that includes breakfast which is coffee and toast, and free wifi around the pool, and in the lobby.

Theres always rooms available, we never even booked ahead online - we just showed up, and both times got a good room.

i will definitely be back :)

Room Tip: book a room on the pool!

If you need a hotel that so close with kuta beach, gora beach inn will be the best recommended place by me . it's comfortable place with swimming pool, restaurant, strategic location (poppies 2 lane), friendly bellboy, internet access, and super low prices . Around this hotel, it's also many supermarket, restaurant, night club, and accessories merchant . I love the design of my bathroom (in addition with hot and cold water), the best bedroom is in second floor with balcony that face to the street and i think my room is the biggest and newest room more than others . You also can choose the menu of your breakfast, with rice or bread, everything is perfect here

Room Tip: room on the second floor that face to the street with big fan, good bathroom, and balcony

The rooms are not the nicest but the pool has a really nice atmosphere. We met plenty of other travellers drinking beer by the pool. We managed and it's right in the mix of Kuta. The beach is really close and so are the clubs. We paid $10 per night which was a fair rate. I'd return to the Gora Hotel. You get what you pay for and this place was good value.

Location is central, mostly young people, party place. Can be noisy at night. Pool is good and staff is very nice. Breakfast is also very basic, but good for a hangover. Kuta is the right place to get drunk and stumble home without the hassle of taking a taxi.

Its not clean at all but for the price you pay (150,000 idr fan room cold shower) you get a pool a place to stay 5 mins walk to the beach and a decent place to sleep. The rooms are a bit moldy and smelly. But ask the staff for air freshners and problem solved. If i return to kuta i would still stay there. May be change just for the sake of changing but still a good place to stay.

We returned to Gora multiple times throughout our stay in Bali. The rooms are satisfactory, if a bit mouldy in places. We paid $25 for a double air con room per night. Their internet cafe was very useful, they would let order us McDonald's deliver any time of the day and didn't mind us bringing back 'guests'

Expect noise though, it is a very short walk to Skygarden and is full of verbose Australians.

Also, one night our friend passed out drunk in his room and an opportunistic guest took it upon themselves to remove his eyebrows.

For cheap accommodation in Kuta: avoid this place.

You like animals? Well maybe not the little bitey ones that don't let you sleep all night, that's another story.

As for breakfast, yes it's included in the 150,000 price tag and while our cook was lovely the toast was as my neighbour tells it "salty butter" not great but definitely the best thing about the place. As for the pool there is one. Also if you like drinking and being around copious amount of it then by all means go to Gora.

Avoid if you have the budget and time to do so.
