Internationally best-selling book, Hotel K is the home of the Bali Nine and the Bali Bombers. Not to be missed. Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, or Hotel K, the tongue-in-cheek nickname for Kerobokan Jail, Bali's most notorious prison. It is a dark, bizarre and truly frightening underworld of sex, drugs, violence and squalor. Hotel K has become home to a procession of the infamous and the tragic, from the Bali Bombers to the Bali Nine. In Hotel Kerobokan's filthy, cramped and disease-ridden cells, a 'United Nations of prisoners' - Australians, Americans, Germans, Brazilians, French, English, Scottish, Mexicans, Italians - live crushed together in misery. Petty thieves and small-time drug users share cells with killers, rapists and gangsters. Hardened drug traffickers sleep alongside unlucky tourists, who've seen their holiday turn from paradise to hell over an ecstasy tablet. Hotel K is the shocking inside story of the jail and its inmates, revealing the wild 'sex nights' organised by corrupt guards for prisoners who have the money to pay, the rampant drug use, the suicides and killings, and the days out at the beach. It takes you behind the grim walls and exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to tourists and dealers on the outside, the gang that rules the jail with terror, the corruption that means anything is for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners in stinking, overcrowded conditions.

    " When in Bali you must respect the Law of the land.I hope this book does not deter anyone from a visit to this Island paradise. "

    " Unbelievable but well-researched insider story of one of Indonesia's most notorious jails, on Bali, filled with not only local inmatess but many foreigners (orang bule) some on dubious or minor charges. The corruption, intrigue, gangsterism and escapades are almost the stuff of legend... "

    " Really good insight into Kerobokan Jail and the corruption that goes on! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica S | 1/28/2014

    " Interesting read. Horrifies you with descriptions from prisoners of filthy, rat-infested cells, corrupt guards and drug-fuelled violence. I definitely enjoyed it but couldn't help feeling that the author was focussing on all the bad points as I have heard elsewhere that the media portray it to be a lot worse than it is. Still think it would be an awful place to be locked up in though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lin Rahim | 1/28/2014

    " Well, after reading this book, will definitely think twice before going to Bali. But it's still a perfect holiday destination anyway esp the beach. Daily activities in Hotel K is defined clearly in this book. Freedom for prisoners to that extent?? - wow, that's very shocking one. And the story of corruption of the guards, that's very sad, i'm speechless. Pretty much explanation on how drugs ruined one's life..Overall, an interesting book to read. "

    " Seems very similar to Marching Powder which I did thoroughly enjoy. This just feels a little too similar, but not quite as good "

    " After a trip to bali and being recommended to read this by an aussie guy who set up an orphanage in bali. The end got a little repetitive, but over all it was good insight to the bali prison system. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole M | 11/19/2012

    " The underground, flip side of the exotic travel brochures. Take a deep breath, unravel your mind and clear your head of preconceptions. Underbelly, Balinese style. "

    " Put on your skid lid and strap yourself in for this read!!! Kerobokan prison, no place for the faint of heart or spirit. From the rife corruption to the readily availabe sex and drugs........This book left me with my mouth agape!! Yet another great read from Kathryn Bonella! Thankyou "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Avian Jun | 3/28/2012

    " Slightly tedious and repetitive at parts. Minimally shocking. I'll admit to not favoring non-fiction books, so likely this book was simply not my thing rather than it being not very good. "
