“Great”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

I stayed there for a night during my trip to Bali last year, and I thought it was great. The rooms were clean and beds are big enough for me(I'm 1.8m tall). It's also great that people from different countries gather there together on their trip to Bali, and if you try to talk to the other guests and you'll find them really friendly, exchanging experiences they have had in Bali and also about stuffs back in their home country. Not to mention it's a plus point that Big Pineapple also provides free WiFi and television programmes for those who can't live without them, although the WiFi died once or twice during my one night stay. Overall, I liked it pretty much. (:

Reviewed 12 January 2012

Bali doesn't have too many hostels. You either stay in a low priced or a high priced hotel, so it's nice that there is the Big Pineapple. It's located about 5-8 minutes’ walk from the Sanur Beach, which is a rather quiet beach. It is a nice spot to relax because there are no noisy bars/clubs nearby, but guests can be very noisy at odd hours of the night. Breakfast is not included in the price, which is a bit odd because all the neighboring countries do. The owner's wife makes a couple of dishes for sale (rice and noodles), but you have to find her first. I suggest that she just establish certain hours when she can cook so that no one has to look for her, and she doesn't have to be disturbed by us. I was a bit grossed out to find a roach the size of a mouse crawl out of the bathroom sink. They could have easily prevented this by pouring bleach or some other household chemical down the pipes now and then. The floors were also not the cleanest to be walking around barefoot, which is the rule there.
