“Very Nice People, and Clean Rooms”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

As it's written in the title, people are very nice there, and if you need anything they ll help you with a huge smile. Rooms are hot but clean. The location is noisy but you'll not hear anything from your room.

When i read the review about this guesthouse from Agoda, lots of traveler suggest not to stay in here. But, i gave it a try anyway..

For me, staying here will gave you the experience like 50% population of Middle-Low class worker in Indonesian. Yes, you'll feel how hot the air in the room at the big city, and can found the cockroach in the bathroom, and also the light off so often at night.. But, for 50% population, lived in the room like this is a blast! So, i guarantee whoever stay here will not get a 5 star experience of the room, but 5 star experience of indonesian daily life! GUARANTEED!

Room Tip: If you go solo, try to order single room for $5/night!

Stayed there one night before heading off to Bukit Lawang, hence it was OK. But for a longer stay would recommend other location, as the windowless rooms are getting extremly hot and the fan is not really helping. Staff is very helpfull with finding buses and transport, etc. Location is convenient with bus stops around the corner.

stayed there luckily just one night - the night without a sleep, sweating from the hotness, staying awake because of all the noise coming from hallway and outdoors.
room was without windows, smelly like a public smoking area.
shower and wc - no comments, locker was broken, no toilet paper.

well, you get what you pay for!

i will never stay in that place again.

i has been a year since i was there but still remember it like yesterday!

Room Tip: tip - stay somewhere else.

The rooms are really cheap, Rp60,000 so you get what you pay for. The rooms are small and the walls are dirty but the bed fairly clean and comfortable. There are no windows and just random people around all the time.

The mosque is down the street so the prayers wake you up at 5am because there are holes above the door. I slept fairly well, the room was warm but comfortable with the fan pointed directly at me and a blanket on- however I am used to the heat after living in Darwin so it may be too warm for some people.

Bathrooms again are pretty run down and kinda weird- no toilet paper and can't flush TP anyway. Shower is cold with a handheld shower head that doesn't reach up to the holder. No actual shower curtain or anything, just stand in the middle of the bathroom.

All in all pretty old but clean-ish, free wifi and cheap as anything. Cost Rp180,000 to taxi from the airport

I stayed only one night before off to Lake Toba.

Room was small and without window, fan only and warm. Luckily I could sleep in that room because I was tired. Bathroom was very basic and not so clean. Water shower only. I checked out the roof top but it was dirty and not organised.

I won't stay this guest house again and I won't recommend if you are looking for clean place.

The small but clean rooms i have stayed in had no windows and it was hot, so the fan was not really enough. Cold shared showers. No bedbugs (I read that on TA...). Toast and coffee are included in the allready low price. The staff was really really nice!
