I have scoured the island for all of the best hostels in every town and region, but Canggu hostels are definitely my favourite of the bunch.

With real tropical island style, each of these options are a comfortable home away from home.

Whether you’re planning to immerse yourself into hostel life with the other guests, or keep to yourself and explore the town solo, all of the spots are friendly, safe and sunny.

There are famous surfing beaches, delicious restaurants, cute cafes and lively bars, Canggu is a hub of entertainment and activity.

Spend your stay visiting all that the town has to offer, with one of my hostel selections as your cosy island home.
