“Rats in the kitchen”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

My experience in this hotel was the worst I could had. At a first glance it looks nice, with a beautiful balinese entrance. But when you get inside you start to realize what a trick! I had to ask to see 3 differents rooms until I could find the less worst. The walls have mold on it, the matress old, and the bathroom is old and really dirty.
But the worst thing comes now. I was at a public area beside the kitchen, in the daylight, when I saw 6 rats ( yes 6, I counted) walking freely inside and around the kitchen. I pointed the rats to the owner and she said is normal and they are all around the town.!!!!!!!!!
It was my worst experience in a homestay.

Room Tip: If you really want to be there, at least choose the rooms at the end of the garden. They are far fro...

Stayed here in a double bed room with fan. We don't like AC so far is ideal for us. Very, very clean accommodation. Hot water is hot, but don't compare it to the efficiency of western showers. Bed was big.

Host is always smiling and helpful. Beautiful, well kept housing compound. Host will help you find deals around town for tours, etc.

This place is so nice. You have the opportunity to sleep around a temple, so special.
The owner and the staff are amazing people, nice and kind.

The breakfast is insane, one of the best ones in Asia, for sure!

They have 2 kinds of rooms, the old ones and the new ones. We stayed in the old ones, very clean but the new ones are much better.

The bad point is that the roof is made of bamboo so you can hear perfectly each kind of sound from your neighbor, even if they whisper. Don't forget your earplugs!

Room Tip: Look for the newer rooms.
