I have stayed in many hotels with many different rates in this area. As a person who spends much of the day out, this time I decided to dedicate most of my budget to transport and a minimal amount to accom. GSI fit the bill perfectly for me. The rooms are motel sized so if you travel with huge amounts of luggage you'll fall over it. For people with surfboards, the balcony holds those. I pack light so no problems with lack of storage for me. As I am rarely around for breakfast I didn't have it included but often ate an early lunch in the restaurant on site. The Indo and Balinese dishes are excellent and well priced.
GSI is well located, very secure (lock boxes near reception but no room safe), the security staff are diligent (Mr Widarma, ex army is a truly delightful character) and the property is very quiet. Staff are helpful and friendly. The standard of cleaning could be improved, the wifi is patchy inroom, the water pressure is variable but for the price all of these are minor details much outweighed by the location, convenience and cheerfulness of the staff for me. If these things matter to you, spend more and find an option close by. The area is great.More
