Eager for a refreshing dip in the pool?

Let’s grab a smoothie from the cafe and have a wander round. Kos One Hostel is a 5 Star Hostel because…

1. Sustainable Initiatives for Positive Impact

Kos One Hostel passionately cares about the environment, simple as that. And what’s great is that this is evident as soon as you start to look around.

It’s certainly not your typical 5 Star Hostel. In a good way, of course.

Not everyday do you come across an accommodation that looks great, feels great and makes a solid effort to minimise their footprint.

As expected, Canggu offers a hot climate – the outdoor pool is there for good reason!

With this in mind, Kos One generate 50% of their daily electricity requirement through solar energy.

Now let’s take a moment to admire the beautiful building. Notice all the wood integrated in to the design?

Most of this is recycled!

Furthermore, the cafe offers fresh ingredients from local markets, supporting local people.

Suddenly an impressive boutique hostel design is merged with sustainable efforts you can witness and enjoy first hand. Hats off, team.

2. Fun slide and Jacuzzi, anyone?

A great hostel with striking design will have their guests feeling WOW-ed and wanting more.

At Kos One Hostel, you will be feeling exactly that. In fact, it’s likely that you may find yourself extending your stay.

That’s thanks to the clever amenities designed with fun adults and solo travellers in mind.

Be prepared for boutique and modern, spacious and bright. Less budget backpackers and more fancy flash packer.

Get social in the swimming pool and make friends in the ‘social hub’ area.

Wind down in the Jacuzzi and maintain that summer bod at the fitness centre, before tanning on the sundeck.

Psst! It’s no wonder Kos One is listed as one of 15 most luxurious hostels in the world!

It’s almost impossible not to meet people during your stay. Yet there are cosy corners dedicated for that all important ‘you time’, too. That’s where the high-speed WiFi and library come in handy!

Hostelgeeks will also be blown away by the rooms. They’re insanely spacious, clean and comfy and ideal for travellers that enjoy smaller dorms.

This is important to mention before we continue: only dorm rooms are available here, no privates.

But honestly, with double-beds and space for only 4 people, you might forget that you’re sharing. Solo female travellers can also opt for a ladies only room.

3. Unique Alternative Beach

So we already told you about the Jacuzzi and pool. Yet it doesn’t end there!

Kos One Hostel have gone one step further than to just offer a standard pool with nearby loungers and a small grass area.

Oh no no, there is SO much more on offer here and it’s known as Alternative Beach.

Whether you’re a guest or a member of the public, this awesome daytime hang out is the place to be if you’re a big kid looking for a fun time. And you are, aren’t you?!

Instead of gingerly stepping in to the pool, opt for the fun slide and/or diving platform. Honestly though, our favourite is the over-water swing!

The main feature is a swim up pool bar serving cocktails, wines, beers and more.

Like we said, this is a playground for adults and adults are allowed to enjoy a drink by the pool. This easily adds to the 5 star status.

BONUS: a brand new spa is opening in mid 2019, offering quality treatments and therapies.
