Expert Opinion about Hostels in Ubud

In this section, I give you my personal opinion. There are hundreds of locations providing a vast array of rates for any traveller, but I am going to recommend three premises that are not far from the town centre and where women and children can feel safe:

This is not to say that the others are bad in any way; all the options listed here are among the top hostels on the island. However, these three offer tons of wellness opportunities for visitors. You will find yoga sessions, movie booking, affordable food and drinks, mountains, and a ready guide for all your wilderness and downtown adventures! This is why I handpicked these few from all the others.

Wherever you choose to stay, have fun on your backpacking adventures!
