Where is Mad Monkey Gili Trawangan?

Gili Trawangan is a small island off of mainland Lombok, just an hour and a half east of Bali. “Gili T” is 3 kilometers long and 2 kilometers wide — the perfect little slice of paradise! There are no motor vehicles allowed on the island so most visitors walk or cycle around.


How to get to Mad Monkey Gili Trawangan

To get here, you must take a boat from either Lombok (30 minute ferry) or from Bali (90 minute speed boat). For more details on how to get here, read our guide on how to get to the Gili islands.

We recommend getting the EkaJaya boats, as they are the most reliable. From Padang Bai Fast Boat Harbour in Bali, the boat takes about 90 minutes.

From the Gili Trawangan pier, head north up the coast for 750 meters. Turn left onto Jalan Vila Kelapa (look for Blu d’a Mare) and head west for 1.5 kilometers. When you reach the beach, turn right. Mad Monkey is 2 minutes up the road.

Really loved staying there. Wanted to stay for 2 nights but extended 3 more.It is not located in the party area which is nice because it’s calm and you can just rent a bike and go everywhere in 15 minutes.Its also perfect if you are traveling alone, staff there is amazing and will help you with anything and will always be so polite & friendly. They organise parties and really take care of their customers.Thank you!

I highly recommend this hostel. Very friendly staff who will make you feel home instantly. Especially Andy is an amazing guy.We stayed 3 nights in a 3 bed dorm with airco which was perfect. Also the food is really good. Sometimes the music is a bit loud, but that’s why we came to Mad Monkey anyway. 100% would come back!

5 stars, because the hostel is what it's marketed to be: a party hostel. I stayed in room with 3 beds and it was quite comfortable. There are plenty of showers and toilets for everyone to use. There was always hot water except for Friday night, when there was NO water at all for about half an hour. Not a big deal but it annoyed me a bit at the moment. I met great people in this hostel and the party atmosphere was on point at any point of the day.However, the wifi didn't work in the rooms, only in the bar area 🙃I guess that's fine if you only want to party, but for me as a digital nomad, it was very annoying. The staff tried to help me figure it out, but at the end suggested that I go to a café somewhere and work from there. They denied to give me a compensation for the money I would spend on a beverage while I'm there. The bar area has loud music playing constantly so working from there was not an option either. Consider this of you need to work while at this hostel.Another thing to consider is that the hostel is on the "wrong" side of the island if you want to go partying and clubbing.Every Friday they organize a foam party which was so much fun!Overall I had a pleasant stay and the staff was very friendly.
