4 Top Hostels in Kuta and Seminyak, Bali

Currently I have grown a liking to Bali, Indonesia and have been there 5 times in the past. Bali has the whole package for any type of traveler. From the beach goers to the culinary hunters and the nature lovers such as myself. And like my hometown Sabah, Bali also have the most beautiful sunsets around and fresh yet cheap seafood (if you know where to find 'em).

Besides that, with millions of tourists coming to Bali each year, you will never be short of accommodations in any part of Bali. Here are 4 hostels I would highly recommend  depending on my purposes for staying there. All of my recommendations have an average of 8.9 score on Booking.com and here are the main options I seek when choosing a hostel :-

  • provides an all female dorm
  • free breakfast included with price
  • closeness to certain places (eateries, fav stores, beaches etc)
And here's my list!

1. KOSTA HOSTEL - Jalan Dewi Saraswati III No. 77, 80361 Seminyak, Indonesia

The only hostel in this list located in Seminyak. I chose this place because of its close proximity to my favorite Indonesian flagship store on Sunset Rd which is the famous EIGER store. It takes only a 7 minutes walk the store from the hostel. Good place to stare so that you can make several trips to the store for a shopping spree. Hehe.  And the hostel is very comfortable with very big beds. My room was a three person female dorm as seen in the picture below. I loved the decor so much. The negative part - no breakfast is included with the price. Sold separately.

Kosta Hostel - Beautifully decorated with a boutique-likeness hotel. With dorms!
