Everything was beyond expectation, staffs were great and helpful, unfortunately they there were only 11 rooms available in this property, so it's a little chance to get the room booked especially in peak season

The Merbabu guest house is our best guest houses on Jawa. The rooms are great. A good shower, big bed and all very clean. The town of Malang isn't that special, but Merbabu makes up for that. Nice and friendly staff and pretty much the whole city in walking distance. Definitely a good place to spend a night or two.... More

We stayed a few nights at the guest house. It was a comfortable stay, but the room was fairly small for 2 people. We have had bigger rooms for the same price in Malang. The location is convenient and the breakfast is pretty nice. Overall, not a bad place to stay.

They call it a guest house and your first impression is something that resembles a backpack style of accomodation and shared arrangements. Its actually so much more than that. You get a nice spacious room with free water, tea and coffee facilities. Nice big comfy bed and cable tv. The reception area is pretty small but its not five star... More

Another delightful thing was they served afternoon snack which consist of one small local snack and a cup of coffee or tea. And no matter how late you... More
