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' 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, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners in stinking, overcrowded conditions.
