I have stayed at the Sorga plenty of times over the last 8 years. It's a small family-run property in a back alley off Poppies 1. It used to be a hidden gem among expats, NGO-workers, long-time guests, retirees and the ingenious traveler. Then it got a review in Lonely Planet and it was all over with the atmosphere and hordes of backpackers started descending. First of all, this is NOT a resort. It is also not a 3-star hotel. This is a good solid reliable budget option in the midst of Kuta. The location is great, close to everything you need, but tucked away enough to be quiet and not so hectic. For $25 for two, you get an aircon room with a basic Indonesian breakfast and a small but very convenient pool. If you are noise sensitive, you want to be in the back building to the left and the ground floor rooms are quieter. The upstairs room above the compound walls get the disco noise from Jalan Legian - some nights. Depending on fellow guests, it might be noisy around the pool and restaurant area. Other than that, it is a peaceful hotel. I would go for the more expensive room, they have better beds and are a better deal.
If you are used to Western hotels and you are fussy and you are a non-seasoned traveler, you will not like it. If you have traveled Asia before, then you will be pleasantly surprised The staff are all lovely and have been there for years. The airport pick up is free and reliable. The rooms are clean and are cleaned daily. Yes, there might be mould due to the humid climate, the water pressure is bad, some sheets are old but all are clean. I have never had a rat problem in my 8 years there. I have stayed in almost every room for up to 1 month at a time. They store your luggage while you are away and they welcome you when you get back.
Overall, it is the best of the bunch and at $25 per room, you will not get a better deal.
