We stayed in Orchid for one night in August 2014. It's centrally located in Bukittinggi, so it's perfect for going round the town, although it is near the mosque, so you might wake up at 5AM because of the prayers. The room was reasonably clean (no bedbugs in it), with European toilet and hot water, so the price was appropriate.... More

Got a confirmation the day before that I've got a economy room with own shower. But when I turned up, the only room they had left was on the top floor with the staff who I also had to share bathroom with(squat toilet and a bowl of water for showering) home made walls too, so you could hear EVERYTHING through...

Awefull place and horrible staff members! We had 3 different rooms and all had bedbugs. We told the staff and they didn't care and just told us to leave. They knew about their problem but just ignore it. Besides that, the showers are really old and dirty and it's located next to the mosque so you will hear loud prayings... More

Our stay at Orchid hostel was agreeable and the room with the hot shower very nice for its price. But especially the tours offered made our trip special: Our guide, Das Rau, was very knowledgeable, took us safely to the most beautiful spots and told us many interesting stories about the villagers, their industries, matrilinearity and other aspects of West...

Arrived late at night in Bukittinggi in the holiday season, and this place was the only place with rooms at 10pm. 120,000 a night for a double, cold water and squat toilets. Breakfast included. Staff very friendly and helpful. The 4am loudspeaker prayers are very very loud here, take some ear plugs!!

Good choice with helpful staff. Makes it a very good way to get info ahead of planning your own activities. Useful if you want guides for anything, but watch for the extras! Very clean hotel and good price for the area.

Very average budget hotel. Nice and helpful staff. Had a room on the second floor and it was rather small but somewhat clean, decent and it was great to see a proper Western toilet after days of perusing the squat toilets. The hot water was a nice touch too after all the cold showers in North Sumatra. The only con... More

The main floor was reasonably well presented, but the room was filthy, and the bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in ten years. The furnishings were also 30 years old. I guess you get what you pay for. The beer was cold however, and the owner is a pleasant fellow. Oh, the hot water does work. And another thing.... More
