Well here I am two days before I leave for Bali and only now do I start to look for places to stay!. My problem is i arrive at 10.00 at night and it looks like all the places listed on TP and other hostel websites only list places a minimum of 45 mins from denpasar airport. By the time I get my bags, cab to hostel etc, its going to be a midnight check in. Plus they all seem to only have double rooms. Any one know anything?

G'day Dodger,
Don't know what your budget is but this might be of use.
My wife and I stayed at the Palm Beach Hotel in Tuban (South Kuta) about 4 years ago and she has stayed there twice since then while I have been stuck working in Perth.
Quite a nice hotel, great pool, A/C rooms, 50 metres from the beach and my favourite beachside Bali restaurant the Pantai is out the gate and across the road (I think I have a pic from the restaurant veranda on TP).
It's about a 5 minute drive from Denpasar airport and you can walk into Kuta by beach or along Jalan Kartika in about 20-30 minutes (not the 5 minutes mentioned on the website!!!)
Current rate for standard room on the website is $50 USD but last week my wife bargained them down to $35 USD per single room. She would have been staying there for a week next month but has had to come home for family reasons.
I'll message you the website.
You could spent 2 nights at the Palm Beach while you organise somewhere cheaper if price is important.
Looks like my wife and I will be in Bali late next month for 2 weeks anyway.

Enjoy Bali cause it is SO SO GOOD

Thanks for that. yeah its a bit on the steep side, just for the fact that after new Zealand and Aus i was looking forward to cheap, but for convenience it looks perfect.
