We have been in Bali for about 3 weeks and have stayed in numerous guest houses, all of which have been wonderful. This was by far our worst experience. Let me first say that the room itself was totally acceptable. Fairly clean and had aircon and a TV which were bonuses. However, this was completely overshadowed by the staff and...

I would only stay at this home stay if it is absolutely necessary!!! we were on a budget and managed to get a room for £7 a night, so we're not expecting much to begin with! Firstly, the staff were rude and the manager never had a clue what was going on. They were also never at the reception to...

We had a pleasant experience at this family guesthouse. The room was clean, spacious, had a lockable closet, decent a.c., cold shower though. Location was great, few minutes to main street and a few minutes to the beach. One odd thing though: looked like our neighbors had breakfast each morning where we were never told of breakfast...we didn't even realize...

We stumbled upon Pondok Satwa while comparing accommodation, and are glad we did. The room was clean, spacious, and offered all amenities. These included AC, TV, simple breakfast, Wi-Fi, and western toilet along with a lockable cabinet in the room. Their neighbor was charging the same price for a fan room. It is also important to check the online price...

Please avoid this ‘hotel’ at all cost. When we checked in the first night, we were shown a big room with unflushed faeces in the toilet bowl and the flush won’t work at all as there’s no water in the room. The worker carried some water to pour down the toilet bowl but the stench of the room was unbearable,...

I stayed here early april 2015. Mould all over one wall, which made the smell in the room un-comprehendable. The bathroom had its own disgusting smell with bugs running up and down the wall and all around the sink, i had to make sure the bathroom door was closed at all times, it was so awful i didnt even want...

Stayed here for 9 nights. Received a very friendly welcome by the host and other travellers as I checked in. Changed rooms after two nights as the initial room did not come with a TV. Bathroom facilities were slightly poor, however I can't complain considering the accommodation price. Location was good, about 10 minutes walk to the Memorial. Plenty of...

This is good for value travelers. It is decent, clean, and well managed. We got 2 regular rooms, and the family room (separate building), spending a fair 3 days in this hotel while exploring Kuta, Tabanan, and southern Bali (the beaches). Despite checking in rather really late at 11pm, they still kept our reservations in place. Interestingly, according to my...

I booked a room for two nights and contacted the hotel to say I'd be landing in the night (2am) so I asked them to keep my reservation. They answered kindly that there wouldn't be any problem. I contacted them again the day before my arrival to remind them, again, no problem. When I arrived at 2.30am, there wasn't anybody...
