During our stay in Lombok we came across a Lonely Planet, stating the prices for staying in Bali. We were prepared to go over our low budget, but when we arrived by shuttle bus in Ubud, a man in traditional clothing picked us up. We told him our budget and he said that was his price.
We walked 5mins and arrived at a peaceful place behind 2 other homestays. The serene sound of the fountain drowned out all street noise and we directly had a good feeling. The place is beautiful and the owners are very friendly. Another guest tipped us about the breakfasts and me and my girlfriend were both very suprised at how delicious they are.
We stayed much longer than we intended, just because of the quality of the rooms, the breakfasts and most of all the family feeling.
We had an upstairs room, it was comfy with a large ceiling fan, a clean bathroom with hot water, good wifi and although I'm quite sensitive to sounds, slept very well and wasn't bothered by loud noise like some other reviews state.
The owner helped us get a good price for hiking Mount Batur, which is generally overpriced if you book it through a booking agency.
We loved our stay here!
