Good staff and tours( try the Bromo one with excellent car and driver) If i were the owner i would refurbish and redecorate one room a year.... They are worn out and not confortable. Price in keeping though. The place is quiet far from Malang's hub and terrible traffic so i would strongly recommend some investment in the rooms...

We got an economic room at 125000 Rp, so it was economic (we don't know the AC room). was not the best value that we had in 6 months trip for an economic room, but it's a room. no windows, no good moskito net, not really quiet and clean (and just traditionnal toilet shower, whithout sink to brush your teeth)....

I was shown a room that was dark, dingy and smelly and 160 K IDR though the entry is attractive enough and receptionist spoke English. My budget is 200 K IDR so wasn't interested in air con rooms which may have been better

I and 3 others booked a tour to Bromo (volcano) and Ijen Plateau (sulphur mine) with Jonas Homestay. This was supposed to include transport to both locations, overnighting in a homestay next to a plantation (that is, not in a town but the countryside) and guide both for Bromo and Ijen. I was then to return to Malang and stay... More

Though located in a quiet and nice ex colonial street, we wouldn't recommend Jonas Homestay. We really had the feeling of being ripped off by the owner (an elder lady speaking good English).We booked a triple room with bathroom inside. It turned out to be outside the room and without key (but we were told it was private and we... More

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... More

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... More
