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!

I had a great weekend at Mad Monkey in Gili T. I stayed in one of the TeePees and it was pretty cool! The whole vibe of the hostel made me feel like I was at a beach club with the pool, beach and DJ. The food is great and affordable with a great happy hour! The location is right in front of the beach but you'll probably want some water shoes if you want to get in the water when the tide is high. It’s in a great location on the sunset side of the island but it's not near the boat harbor. You’ll need to get one of the TukTuks to take you to the hostel, you can’t walk. Once at the hostel you can rent a bicycle to ride around the island. Overall, I had a great time and would definitely return!
