I had an amazing time at Broken Compass :) The staff was so friendly and really made an effort to make you feel like you are apart of the family. I had a really nice time meeting all the guests and taking them on daily excursions. My days were filled with kayaking, exploring waterfalls, surfing and snorkeling. The hostel itself is very beautiful, the rooms and bathroom were always clean and they had AC and fans in all of the rooms. I had a lot of fun and would recommend this exchange to anyone!

My initial time was supposed to be 3 weeks but after spending time with the BC crew and thoroughly enjoying everything the Gili islands had to offer, I extended my time another month! It’s a true paradise through and through. I was very fortunate to be able to capture the fun and beauty Gili T and Broken Compass offers. Many thanks to all the lovely staff for always making me feel at home!

Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Was great to work in such a great island. The hostel had very cool design, tasty food and an amazing staff. All the guest I met agreed on the above statments, and me and the other volunteers had the best time of our life. Completely recommendable :)

One of the best experiences of my life! I didn't want to leave after my volunteer time came to and end. Planning activities for guests and getting to know everyone on an individual basis was so much fun!
