A few days ago, I decided to move for awhile from Seminyak area to Canggu (a popular tourist destination in Bali). This time, I would like to share my experience when stayed at Margarita Surf Hostel, Canggu, Bali. A place that I call like home. Seriously like home. I found many surprises at the hostel which located in the heart of Canggu. Anyway, before I tell you further story about Margarita, let me introduce you to the best staff I know, Mr. Nyoman.
I still remember very well, that afternoon when I checked in at Margarita, a big smile came from Mr. Nyoman. The way he welcomes me, it was just priceless. He also helped me with some interesting explanation about the hostel as well. It was quite hot in Canggu but I just feel like this hostel offers coolness. The building surrounded by greenery. What a nice sleeping will it be. Thank you Mr. Nyoman!
I have no doubt about Canggu. There are plenty of luxury resorts and villas here. Of course with a price that is quite expensive. I traveled to Canggu not for that reason. I was looking for something interesting, mind blowing and unique. Now, how about really cheap price but fancy facilities? Then Welcome to Margarita Surf Hostel, Canggu!
This is the first surprise I got at Margarita. They have 2 rooms category, they are Female Dorm and Mixed Dorm. It is really beautiful bed. I love the color tone of the curtains with the bunk beds style they offer. Another thing that makes me happy with the room is each room has a transparent glass door so the lighting of the room is nice. If you are happen to stay downstair, enjoy your room with the nice pool view. If you have the upstairs room, means daily greenery view will be yours.
In addition, each room has a locker for each guest. This is very important to keep your belongings such as bags and computers. Oh, are you on working holiday time in Bali? Don’t worry about it, Margarita offers you a mini working space in your room. There is nice permanent table at the corner of the room. Feel free to work with your computer right there.
During my stay here, I had to be be connected to the internet all the time. In my personal opinion, the wifi connection in this hostel is excellent. I can work in the room and in the public area smoothly. Voila, all my jobs checked.
THE SUPER NICE POOL
Here is the next surprise I have. Look at that blue and refreshing swimming pool. How am I not flattered, ha? A perfect spot to chill out. There are beanbag chairs around the pool. Those colorful chairs just so perfect with the blue sky and nice weather. What a treat Canggu!
Right on the entrance of the hostel, there is an open space area. You can sitting and working also here. My most favorite time was when sunset. It was truly amazing to have a beer in the beanbag and listening country songs. Margarita made my day again.
Margarita Surf Hostel also provides a BAR, right on the left side of the entrance gate. This bar looks so cozy and natural. We spent good times here with the guests and the staffs. I forget to mention, we had a nice lunch here with Mr. Nyoman. We eat Nasi Campur (local food) and enjoyed fresh water. I would love to repeat that again 🙂
When night comes, this bar switched in to party mode. You can have good time here with other guests. Hit the music ON and bring the party up! No worries about the beer, Margarita’s bar provide ton of beer. Cheers!

Canggu has been so nice and memorable. My overall thought about staying at Margarita Surf Hostel Canggu is awesome. I have never experienced such kind of this hostel’s life before. I love the staffs, the facilities, the vibes and also things around. My big hands for Mr. Nyoman for hosting and treating me at Margarita as a friend. A very humble person and humorous. I will definitely back to Margarita again.
