“Very nice guesthouse, but noisy!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

The guesthouse is very nicely decorated, with rooms around a small but nice pool. There is a great cafe in front of the guesthouse, which serves the breakfast. At night it can be very noisy though as there are a few bars around. Also there were a lot of dogs barging all night!

I had the most incredible time at Flashbacks. It is on a busy street and I was scared of the noise and business. However, once I walked in, I felt like I was out of town. It was peaceful with the greenery, amazing pool and ambiance. The staff were always happy and helpful and the food.... Exceptional. My room was so beautiful and comfortable. Loved it! Thanks Flashbacks for helping make my experience in Bali be as uplifting and filled with enjoyment as it was.

We are longterm cyclists and avoid touristy places. Sanur is touristy, packed with shortterm tourists like you would expect in Bali. But even if Flashbacks is not a backpackers hideout, it's a place where you will meet travelers, people travelling off the beaten track, often longterm. We got a room with a bathroom we had to share with 1 other room. But the rooms are tastefully decorated and clean. Garden is very cosy and you get an excellent breakfast. Value for money.

Been staying here for two weeks and its wonderful. Very helpful staff and nothing is too much trouble. They even light a mosquito coil for your bathroom every night. Breakfast is included and its lovely. Not too far from everything you need. Room service and salt water pool. Perfect Sanur destination.

Flashback's is on the main street in Sanur -- A good alternative for a better value than the beachfront properties. It's set back from the main street as a cluster of 7 different little bungalows, centered around a small but peaceful pool and courtyard.

The property is also attached to The Porch Cafe which was very popular every morning we had our included breakfast there. Our portions were large and tasty and the pastries also looked good there.

the bungalows differ in size and features; ours had a/c which worked quite well and small desk; the bathroom was traditional balinese style with some open spaces but they put in mosquito coils every night to keep any mozzies away. Bungalows were very quiet, well away from any street noise.

Flashback's has a great, cozy vibe and they were also very helpful at booking our transport from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan as well.

Room Tip: Read the descriptions of all the bungalows before you pick so you find the one that best meets your...

This little place has a beautiful, quiet garden and pool area surrounded by rooms. We had one of the private bungalows, which was roomy and comfortable. It was the most beautiful bathroom/shower on our entire trip.
Location is on a bustling street and walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants.
The staff were awesome to deal with. They were so accommodating and able to recommend and help organise transport, tours, fast boats, etc.
if we ever get back to Bali Flashbacks will be our preferred stop!!

If you are looking for something low-key and reasonably priced, yet also classy, clean, and comfortable, look no further! Flashback's fullfilled every single one of our expectations for a few nights in Sanur. My friend and I did a few days of diving and needed a place in the centre - this was a great base for all activities including diving, shopping, massages, and beach. We rented a scooter one day from the Australian bar next door and went to the beach, lots of fun.

Flashback's is just off the main road of Sanur, but is set back in a lush and green property with perfect little wooden bungalows. You definitely get a feeling of solace and escape. There is also a small but perfectly adequate pool that we loved to cool off in at the end of the day. Lots of little couches and reading nooks as well (and a book exchange, which I always appreciate).

Staff was EXCELLENT, friendly and helpful to the nth degree. We accidentally broke a bowl in the room and they were very understanding and did not charge us any extra.

The only suggestion I would make is for the breakfast (which consists of coffee/tea, toast, and fruit). It would be nice to have some protein (example: one single egg) as an option, as I prefer not to eat wheat in the mornings.

Perfect stay, 2 thumbs up!!!!
