From the internationally bestselling author of Snowing in Bali and co-author of Schapelle Corby's autobiography, this is the shocking inside story of Bali's most notorious jail.

"A fascinating insight into the prison, Hotel Kerobokan included shocking testimonies and black humour" Irish Examiner

"Bonella casts a cool, journalistic eye over some horrific events" Sun Herald

Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, the ironic nickname for Kerobokan Jail, Bali's most notorious prison, which has been home to a procession of the infamous and tragic: the Bali Bombers, Gold Coast beautician Schapelle Corby and the Bali Nine, among many others.

Backed up by hundreds of prisoner interviews, the truth about Hotel Kerobokan explodes off the page. In these filthy 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 one ecstasy tablet.

Hotel Kerobokan reveals the wild 'sex nights' organized by corrupt guards for prisoners who have the money to pay, the rampant drug use, the suicides and killings, and days out at the beach. It exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to the outside, the gang that rules the jail through terror, the corruption that means anything is for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners.
