“A good choice on a budget”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

I would recommend this place to everyone. Big pineapple made it really easy to meet other travelers. All the rooms are cleaned each day and beds made with clean sheets and bed covers.The pool and social areas are fantastique.We all used their BBQ and had a great feast for so cheap.The staff found my wallet with a large amount of money inside plus my cards.I accidentally left in my sopping bag and put it in the fridge (stupide) ,The owner (Mia) emailed me while I was at another hostel in Kuta. I thought I lost it in the cab.Big thank YOU,I will tell everyone to go to your hostel

Room Tip: Choose the airconditioned room because its only 50cents extra

Great hostel with a great facilities with everything you could possibly need. Great communal areas which makes it so easy to meet new friends. Terrific swimming pool and TV lounge. The whole place is super clean with larger than normal dorm rooms. You can really save your bucks because you can go everywhere (beach shops and cheap places to eat) without catching a taxi.Plus they have a nice and clean kitchen to cook your own food and even free drinking water. This all adds up as a value place to stay. I came with my girlfriend and we extended for an extra week because it was so great.

As a backpacker, having hot water, a safe place for your overstuffed pack, and wifi are essential. Big Pineapple has all of that but what throws this place over the top is Mia, so helpful, trustworthy, and full of great information. Definitely NOT the type to try to gouge you for all your worth just for her benefit, which is almost invaluable when traveling abroad.

Came back multiple times throughout my stay in Indonesia, using Big Pineapple as a jumping off point and met tons of like-minded travelers. Which is easy to do there as the common area is perfectly set between the pool and the kitchen.

Would and have definitely recommended staying here!

Nice place to stay if you do not want to spent too much money. The hostel has a swimming pool, kitchen and lounge room with wifi. The owner Mia is really friendly and helpful! Great place to stay if you do not want or cannot afford a hotel next to the beach.

Room Tip: If you are a couple, the private is cheeper than the dorm

I stayed in this hostel with my friend in aircond dorm for 4 nights. We really enjoy here. Meet so many travelers and its very fun. The hostel is in the other side of Highway but it's no problem at all. The room is clean and the swimming pool is nice for cool down. There also many movies you can watch in the lounge room. Very good atmosphere with very nice staff. The beaches of Sanur also nice and quite. Very cheap for the facilities that you get. We will be back to stay again here for the next trip to Bali.

Room Tip: Aircond room better for stay. Cool and nice.

Great place. You can walk to everywhere. Great pool and TV room .Easy to meet other backpackers.Free drinking water,coffee and tea.Not having to buy drinking water really saves you money.For $10 you get everything including great wi fi.Everyone joins together for dinners and tours so makes a very happy atmosphere.Discounts on tours and tickets to Gilli T.Extended my stay for 6 nights.The owner Mia helps with everything,she also helped me to get my ATM card back after the machine ate it.

Hi Adam,thank you for your review.We know you were one of our guests that asked to stay,and we are sorry that we had to close because of bed bugs in one room.It was reported to us by a guest,staying in your room, that a group of Chinese brought bed bugs into the Hostel,the guest reported seeing bed bugs on their clothes as they went to the room.As a result we have closed for 5 days renewing all mattresses,pillows and having BED BUGZ BIZ from Denpasar attend to the problem.When they have finished their control they will give us a Certificate of Guarantee that we are a BED BUG FREE HOSTEL.We will post that certificate on Tripadvisor.See you on the 6th.Regards Mia
