Jonas Homestay
Ranked #49 of 56 Hotels in Malang
Reviewed 11 August 2012

I stayed for three days and two nights on early of August. To tell you the truth, I felt like I was spending my time at home. The owner was so friendly, as well as her staffs. Very helpful, informative about anything I like to know about Malang and a lots of warm discussion which made me feel so comfortable staying there. Looking forward to coming back and spend my days staying in Jona's Homestay and it's a pleasure for me to know the owner and her staffs personally.

It's really a homestay, family going in and out. Yes it's a cheap place and the conditions are not as a 4 star hotel but it's really authentic. You're feeling that you are living in a local family. We saw a preparation for a wedding with a lot of guest there. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Most of them speaks well English. The location is not bad, not far from markets, restaurants and shops.

We didn't spent the night because we arrange with them a 2 day tour to Bromo, IJEN (tour and hotel) and transfer to Bali by 900.000/pers. Which it's a good price.

We stayed here for two nights when visiting Malang. We came here on a recommendation in the Lonely Planet, which said it was great value for money. We did not find it to be that.

It is set in a rather luxourious street just outside Malang city centre. The building itself is an old colonial villa, which must at one time have been stunning, with a small courtyard etc. Most rooms are situated around the courtyard and some have their own bathrooms/showers. The cheaper rooms have no toilet or bathroom, but there are shared facilities. We had one of the largest rooms, with a private bathroom. There was a pungent smell of urine and the wasbasin (filled with water and a 'scooper' to wash yourself in the absence of a proper shower) was full of mosquito larvae!!! This meant restless nights and quite a few mosquito bites. Not a nice experience.

The owners are getting on a bit and although very friendly, seem to have lost their touch somewhat. Cleanliness definitely leaves a lot to be desired. All in all, the place feels tired and past its best-before date. Ok for a few nights, or if there's no alternative, but not recommended for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Rooms without bathrooms are actually better value for money, as the private bathrooms are pretty poo...

Homestay in a posh area and close to the centre. Quiet, friendly, clean and secure. They can arrange the tour to Bromo. We paid 600.000 for one 2 people.
