this is without a doubt the greatest hostel i've ever worked at. the staff is soo great! i wish i could have stayed there longer. everyone that came through ended up staying longer than their original alitted time. that speaks volumes of this place of no one leaves! hahah. johnny, the guy who runs place is an awesome dude. he will take care of you. there is such a laid back atmosphere, i kove it! i wish that all hostels were like this place. Trust me when i say, give this place a chance! you will have one of the best times of your life!
The conditions offered didn't really match the reality. I wasn't offered a bed, but instead a pile of mattresses under the stairs, harry potter style. If I was just backpacking wouldn't have been a problem, but when you're supposed to hang out with your guests until late and wake up at 9am, it matters. Although the management team was always correct with me, they never really welcomed me properly. I was never invited for a meal or a beer, which goes against the slogan of the hostel "come as a guest, leave as a friend". Only with Bella I managed to have a couple of chats. Concluding, it was ok.
Gili Castle Team! Best bunch of people you can find in Gili T. Since the first moment I arrived everyone was so welcoming. The atmosphere between guests and staff makes you want to stay more and more. Supposed to stay 2 weeks and end up staying almost a month :) Special Thanks to Bella, Mercedes and Ricky! Best bosses ever :) hope to see you soon guys!
As soon as I arrived in Gili Castle, the staff made me feel more then welcome
they were really suportive and let you enjoy the island anyway you want it
Gili Castle is notorious known as an eternal party place, as a party promoter you gotta make sure guest feel welcome and cheer them up to join in the pool and grab a beer
I met a lot of people who were traveling alone and in Gili Castle they mannaged to meet new friends who are now part of their history
I really liked staying there, it was a great opotunity to get to know Gili whilst making my time useful
Recommend to anyone who is HAPPY
