Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, the ironic name given to Bali's most notorious jail by its inmates. It's a bizarre nether world where murderers sleep alongside petty thieves, drug and alcohol addiction is rife, guards are corrupt and money talks. The inmates' grim experiences are at stark odds with the holiday paradise that exists just beyond Kerobokan's dank concrete walls. Into this hellhole have passed a procession of the infamous and the tragic: the Bali bombers, Gold Coast beautician Schapelle Corby, the Bali Nine and Chris Packer, among others. Hotel Kerobokan is the shocking inside story of the jail and its inmates, written by an Australian with unprecedented access to the inside. Kathryn Bonella spent a year in Bali, entering the jail every day to co-write Schapelle Corby's autobiography. Now she's telling the incredible story of the jail itself. Backed up by interviews with prisoners past and present, the truth about Hotel Kerobokan explodes off the pages.

This book is awesome. it really makes you want to turn the page and keep reading. i laughed and cried and felt sorry for the prisoners. though there is alot of stuff about sex drugs and rock and roll, my type of book ihave to say.
Book Review: Hotel Kerobokan by Kathryn Bonella - Reviewed by johnd (27 Jul 2010)
This is a pageturner - an eye opener. Some of it is so incredible, but it's backed up by clips from newspaper reports. Like hookers in jail,sex rooms, corruption, days out of jail where guards wear an inmates board shorts and put their guns in the Italian inmates mothers beach bag. Weird but truly a great read. Also, i had no idea how drug traffickng worked and this really opened my eyes.Absolutely first rate. Have bought several copies as a gift for my mates.
