“Nice staff - a bit off the map. Free scooter, breakfast, wifi and water”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Stayed here as is was recommended by some fellow travellers - and as we were told they had good deals on Gili transfers.

Room was ok and clean
Bathroom was ok - but had no sink for some reason - just a tap 25 cm over the floor for hand-washing
Wifi-connection was excellent.
Scooters were free - and worked very well.
Free water - very nice
Breakfast was great - served until 10.00 - we overslept and they still made it for us at 11.30
There is a fridge to store supplies in - and you could probably borrow the kitchen to cook if you wanted.
Service was good

We were a bit disappointed with the information regarding transport to Gili Trawangan. We got a good price compared to the listed price at Ocean Star Express (including transfer to Padang Bay). We were told it would take only 2½ hours to get there - and that we could only go to Gili T directly - not the other islands.
We were told to be ready at 6.30 - and the owner would be there to assist us. At 7.10 we had to call the owner who had not showed up. He called the driver who were a bit delayed. They showed up at 7.30.
On our merry way we were dropped at a shop in Padang Bay - where we waited 45 minutes and had time for breakfast before the boat left. It went first to Lombok, then to Gili Air - and last to Gili Trawangan where we got off the boat at 11.40.
When I am on vacation I don't mind something taking that long - I just don't like wrong information. Ocean Star Express was very good - we used them both to Gili T - and back.

Dear Mister .

Thank you very much for your review. as we get information by Ocean Star Express following the Boat Company that we have recommended to you to get to Gili T with that they informed us to be ready for guest at 6:30Am . may be is there a change is made by driver due the high way to east side is more close from our Guesthouse that may be the driver pick you up in the end after they pick up some one else , also about the the route from Padang Bay to Gili that you said they go to lombok first , that we don't get any info for that , as in ocean star advertiser they wroted is the route from Padang Bay to Gili T and continue to Lombok as you see as well on Brosure promotion , and we fell sad that we did a mistake of wrong info but for sure we will complaint as well to OCEAN STAR the boat company about this , and this mistake is not gone be happen on next time , again i wish thank you for stayed with us and please apologize for our mistake , and fell free to contact us if you have any inquiries , also i was not sleeping by they way , when you call me from the phone in receptions Dana Guesthouse Bali , i was waiting the bus for you in the shop in front , while waiting i had a cup of morning coffee .

Best Regards

Putu Martika

I stayed here 3 nights and I had a gorgeous time. Let's start with the staff, they are friendly and help you all the time. They drive you around for a fair prize and they know the places you want to see. The rooms are good and absolutely okay! The breakfast is simple but tasteful, I like it. There is no restaurant in the guesthouse, but a 3 minutes walk brings you to a small, cheap but gorgeous place where they serve you balinesian food, pizza and probably the best beef burger I had for ages! The Guesthose is not close to the airport, but that makes it more quiet, you will find time to relax. The beach is a 5 minutes ride away. You can do that on your own with one of the Guesthouse's scooters or the staff takes you there and back. I had a wonderfull time here. Thanks for that!

this guesthouse was awesome. Very comfortable and quiet (away from busy kuta). They give you a motorcycle as part of your stay, and the breakfest is very good. They sell beer at the small "beer corner" for 50000 IDR for two tall bottles of the local bintang beer. The staff are all awesome and fun to hangout with. They have great advice on how to get around town and what spots to eat. The beach is 15 minutes away and 20 to downtown kuta. They also include airport pickup which will save you alot of hassle and money. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Pay alittle extra for air conditioning room, its very nice here.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Although the guesthouse is close to the airport it took us both times 2 hours driving back and forward. That is the biggest minus but is due to traffic and not km. The free motorbikes pleased us very much since we used them for 2 days.
Not all the people working here speak very good english, but they are al least willing to help or find somebody who can understand.
We liked it mostly for it being a little remote from all the tourists in Kuta and Legian.

We originally booked for 2 nights, but we couldn't help but spend the full two weeks here. The place is quaint, friendly, and close enough to everything you'll need. scooter or car hire will get you to where you want to go. Breakfast is great and so is the surf. Guesthouse is a perfect name because you feel like your a guest at your friend's house. Recommend for budget accommodation.

I must say then when i looked up on the map it "seemed" to be far away from Kuta and those places that usual tourists would want to see, however since the first day i've staied in dana Guesthouse i've realized that it was not far away from what we wanted to do and see.
5 Min by scooter from the closest beach, 10/15 mins from the famous Echo beach where surf facilities and lots of nice food restaurants are located, 30 mins from kuta and honestly....thanks God, since we loved to stay in a quiet place like Dana guesthouse !
We wanted to look for a location located not in the crowded area, although in a "strategic" position from where we could have reched anything we wanted and to be honest i reckon this is the greatest place around the south-east area!
Moreover, last but not least, the staff members were available for us at 120% for any kind of request or information we needed, as we got along as well!
Breakfast is served every morning on the small table located right outside of your balinese-style cottage and the enviroment makes your breakfast nice and enjoyable!
It is clearly not the cheapest place in Bali, but the price is totally worth it and anyway not high at all!!!
So, for thus who are not sure about where to go....i would reccomend dana Guesthouse since we didn't know where to go too when we were looking for the accomodation!
