Nau Capsule Hostel Bali

One of my hobby is travelling. 
When I was in college, everytime I had a college-break, I always tried and made time for travelling.
There was one time when I and two best friends went for a trip around Java... couch-surfing.
I am not doing it as often now. But everytime I have a chance, I and my hubby always travel around the island (or, sometimes, even further)

So, there is this new hostel in Kuta called NAU. It is Balinese word for homey or cozy.
The hostel, in my opinion, is more suitable for backpackers. Coz it only have 2 private rooms, while the others are shared rooms. Still, it's very unique! Because..... it is the first hostel with a capsule room in Bali.

I interviewed Rodolfo, a male guest from Chili, who is backpacking for 4 years already-- circling the world. He said that he had only found this type of room (capsule room) in Japan and here, in Bali.

Apart from that, the hostel, like its name, is very cozy.
You can imagine when I said dorm/shared rooms, or if I mention backpacking hostel, the first thing that come to mind is crappy. Like, messy, stinky, unusually shabby... kind of crappy. But this one is unexpectedly tidy and organized. Don't believe me? I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The facade is quiet quirky, rite? It was made from recycled Bintang bottles
This is the veranda
That is me and Romain (a French guest of the Hostel) hanging out in the Lobby, busy with our own gadget.
The private room
This one is my favorite! Tadaaaa.... Capsule room.
There are more types of rooms that you can choose. I will try and ask for some more pictures.
And, by the way, I can get all these beautiful photos, thanks to the architect and the hostel management.
Also..... despite my personal relationship with the architect, I think he did a very great job!

They are crazzzyyy with Indonesian's Mega Mendung batik pattern!
It's all over their walls!!
