Hi Gemma !

My first night ,i recce accomodation till 11pm ( peak season ) and finally gave up and rest my feet in Indah Beach Resort at Poppies Lane 2 for 32 USD ( Twin ) . Facilities is fantastic here. You can book this online .

The following day , i spotted a guest house just behind right the resort and paid less than 8 USD a night ( 2 single bed , Fan , Shower + Breakfast) . 5 Min walk to beach.

P/S : Take extra caution with the money changers there. They can program their calculator.

If you want to stay in Kuta, the main touristy area with all the bars, there's a great place called Bali Sandat Inn 2. The address is Poppies II St, Benesari Lane. I stayed here in 2005 and really enjoyed it. The rooms are cheap (about AUD10 p/night) and it included breakfast. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach, and has it's own pool.

If you want to stay out of Kuta, check out Three Brothers in Legian. Fantastic hotel, but more expensive.

Don't worry about arriving late. There will still be tons of taxi drivers waiting and you pre-book them for a set price at the airport, so you don't need to worry about getting ripped off.

Hope that helps!
