Seminyak is more than just a beach. Though there are fewer crowds than Kuta, you’ll still find world-class surf breaks and spots for stand up paddle boarding. Out of the water, there’s lots to get excited about too. Cool cafes and restaurants serve both local and international food, while beach clubs mean you can sit right on the sand with a cocktail or beer in hand.
Travelling on a budget? Forget about the villas and luxury hotels and take a look at Seminyak hostels. There’s a huge variation suitable for a wide range of travel styles and budgets.
Let us help you find where to stay with our list of the best hostels in Seminyak!
Overall Best Hostel in Seminyak – d’Gobers Hostel Seminyak by Gumilang Hospitality
Let’s start off with a legendary hostel in Seminyak. Just off Petitenget Street, d’Gobers is more than just a hostel. It’s also a cafe and beer house and it’s a top choice if you want to experience Seminyak’s nightlife. Want to make friends? Hit up the rooftop terrace, private pool, or indoor common area with movies, karaoke, and games. Wherever you choose, a fellow traveller is never far away! The cherry on the cake at this awesome hostel is the free breakfast. Choose between Indonesian fried noodles or rice; or the international option of omelette or toast!
Best Party Hostel in Seminyak – Capsule Hostel Bali – New Seminyak
Looking for a party hostel in Seminyak? Cast your eyes no further than the incredible Capsule Hotel Bali. With cheap drinks and a vibrant atmosphere, you can dance the night away seven days a week, at events like pool parties, mansion parties, and even bus parties. If you overdo it, head down to the restaurant the following day to soak up your hangover. Veggies and vegans, there are options for you too! While this is a super fun place to stay, it isn’t ideal if you’re looking for deep sleep during your stay.
Best Hostel for Digital Nomads in Seminyak – Borough Capsule Hostel Bali
Want to work without even leaving your bed? That’s entirely possible at Borough Capsule Hostel. With a drop down laptop friendly workspace, you can be sending emails and writing copy first thing in the morning. There’s enough room for your diary and phone too, so you can stay properly organised. The capsules have comfortable single beds where you’re guaranteed a good night’s sleep, and more privacy than a regular dorm. Breakfast is included, but make sure to leave some time between eating and taking a dip in the swimming pool!
Best Hostel for Solo Travellers in Seminyak – Socialista Lifestyle Hostel
Socialista Lifestyle Hostel boasts one of the best pools in Bali and it’s easy to meet fellow travellers on the beanbags and coffee tables surrounding it. The vibe here isn’t as crazy as some of the party hostels in Seminyak, but you can enjoy daily events such as lazy burger days, pool parties, and karaoke. The colourful hostel is close to Berawa Beach and Finns Beach Club, so you can easily find things to do nearby both day and night.
Best Budget Hostel in Seminyak – Karisa Mix Pods

Karisa Mix Pods is one of the cheapest hostels in Seminyak, and you’ll have more privacy than your average hostel dorm with your very own self-contained pod. You’ll also have your own personal locker where you can keep your belongings safe. As well as the pods, there are some awesome communal spaces in the hostel including a pool lined with beanbags for chilling out and an indoor dining table.
Best Hostel for Couples in Seminyak – Seminyak M and D Guesthouse
Travelling with your other half? A sweaty and smelly dorm probably isn’t what either of you have in mind. Thankfully, it’s not hard to find a private room with a fluffy and comfy double bed. Though this is listed as a guesthouse, it offers deluxe rooms that will put you in mind of a nice hotel. Some rooms open out onto the swimming pool – you don’t even have to leave the premises to cool off in the warm Balinese sun!
Best Capsule Hostel in Seminyak – Stellar Capsules
Capsule hotels started in Japan but they’re firmly at home in Bali. Seminyak’s Stellar Capsules offer dorm prices combined with more privacy than you’d get in your average dorm. On top of that, there’s a shaded swimming pool and a terrace in each room. The coolest thing about this Seminyak hostel is the artwork. Done by local artists, it’s bright and vibrant and adds a big splash of character!
Best Hostel with a Pool in Seminyak – Kosta Hostel
You’ll have noticed that many of the best hostels in Seminyak have a pool. But the one at Kosta is really something special! The oval shaped pool boasts turquoise waters with both sunny and shaded areas, and there are sun loungers where you can dry off and enjoy your holiday read. There’s a restaurant on site which offers delicious healthy foods like acai bowls and smoothies… and some naughtier stuff too!
Another Great Hostel for Digital Nomads in Seminyak – Cozy Bobo Hostel

Coffee and tea is always available, and such a large workspace means you won’t be isolated while you work. Once you’ve finished emailing and writing for the day, check out the back terrace. Not only are there places to chill out in the shade or catch some rays, but there’s also a hot tub. Chill out there after a busy day of exploring. You’ve got the whole of Seminyak at your doorstep from your base on Kunti Street!

With a rooftop pool and terrace, you can make the most of this hostel’s bird’s eye view over Seminyak. This comfortable hostel has relaxing in mind – and it’s a wonderful place to spend a lazy day or two as you explore Bali. You can get private rooms here which come equipped with a cosy and comfortable queen bed, or a single bed in a dorm. Whichever you choose, this is one of the most luxurious ways to experience Seminyak on a budget!
Perfect for Solo Travellers – Cozy Hostel
With an outdoor deck where you can enjoy a shisha with fellow travellers and new friends, Cozy Hostel is a must for solo travellers in Seminyak. Breakfast is included in the price here which keeps your costs down even more. While this is no doubt fun for solo travellers, the large dorms don’t offer the same privacy that you get in some of the capsule hostels on the list. If you’re uncomfortable sharing your space with lots of other people, this perhaps isn’t the place for you!
Best Hostel with a cafe in Seminyak – Umahku BnB Seminyak
Some travellers will want more than just a place to sleep when travelling to Bali. With a cafe on site, it’s easy to meet other travellers or find a space to work if you’re a digital nomad. Umahku BnB’s cafe is particularly attractive, offering a wide range of delicious food and drink. Enjoy a coffee or breakfast by the pool, and once your stomach has settled down take a dip!
