“no good”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

ventilation is very poor in those non-air con rooms. it gets warmer in the rooms. I upgraded to an air-con room but it took 8 hours to cool down the room (lacked of maintenance). although it is cheap & clean, however, overall it is not worth while. pay a little more elsewhere for comfort.

Our room was at the front of the building, which was very noisy in the early morning since the windows could not close and the mosque and some kind of market were right in front of it. The room was really nice and the location of the hostel is great. The staff doesnt really speak English and are often unfindable if you need them. You could state a time you wanted your breakfast, but whatever you said, they would bring it at 8 AM, this happened to everyone in the hostel we met. The breakfast at our 1st morning was great... nasi goreng with egg, krupuk, a small slice of watermelon and instant coffee.. the other days we were really disappointed because we got some kind of bun from the supermarket, filled with fake flavourless cheese. i guess you have to be lucky!

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back of the building to avoid the noisy street :)

This place is clean and cheap, and the staff is friendly. That said, it is quite far from most good shopping and restaurants, and the area is dead after 6pm. The bed was comfortable though and the advantage of the location is that it is in a residential neighborhood and so perhaps more interesting than other parts of town. The WiFi, however, was complete rubbish and there is nowhere within miles to find a place to go online. If you can afford something better, it's probably a wise idea to stay elsewhere. If you have no choice, you could certainly do worse.

Room Tip: The fan rooms with shared bathroom, while excellent value, have windows that look out onto the corri...

The owner from this guesthouse was so polite and nice person, we should stay here for 4 nights but we cut it out to be just 2 night because of the room is overloaded with my shopping things! Yes it is a small room, but it was the best guesthouse we even stayed before! Seriously.. so clean, cheap and complete with towel and breakfast! and and.. I love their breakfast so much. Only its take times to searching for this guesthouse.

Stayed in a cheaper double room with fan and shared bathroom, which had hot water, but slight problems with water pressure and cleanness. The room was basic, but clean and you won't probably miss AC during the rainy season as the evenings get quite chilly. Breakfast, either Indonesian with fired rice or European with bread and egg/jam, was delivered to the room at the time you wanted and there was free wifi (strong signal only in lobby). Friendly and helpful staff and a rather good guide found in the lobby contributed to the nice stay and for the room price of 90000 IDR it's more than one can dream of.

There is a lovely restaurant just around the corner "Warung steak doerman", which is even more unique than the hotel - not for the steak, but the ambience in general.

We were very happy with our stay at Unique. After travelling around Sumatra with cold showers and very basic rooms it was nice to stay at a place with hot shower and AC. The shower didn't work the first night (was scolding hot then stopped altogether) but every morning was perfect. The AC is very quiet and the room was clean. They have a good value airport pick up and a nice simple breakfast each morning. They also have free boiled water and some basic cooking facilities.
