“Worthwhile”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The only library in Ubud and fortunately it's good. They also have classes. It's worth becoming a member even if you are staying a short time. It's beside the soccer field.

“A must do in Ubud”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This place is definitely worth visiting, We had a wonderful time in the jewellery and wood carving classes. It is a fantastic learning centre with fabulous staff and a good place to borrow books from. It is a great place to learn about the Balinese culture. The classes are great value for money - 3 hours, 250000rp - a good way to help the locals.

This place is a great resource for Balinese culture, language classes, and art and music lessons. We had a wonderful time in the Bahasa Indonesian language class and highly recommend it.

For a small refundable fee you can borrow books in a number of languages. You can also join a bahasa Indonesian class, silver jewellery, fruit or wood carving, dancing & more!
