As it's written in the title, people are very nice there, and if you need anything they ll help you with a huge smile. Rooms are hot but clean. The location is noisy but you'll not hear anything from your room.

Stayed there one night before heading off to Bukit Lawang, hence it was OK. But for a longer stay would recommend other location, as the windowless rooms are getting extremly hot and the fan is not really helping. Staff is very helpfull with finding buses and transport, etc. Location is convenient with bus stops around the corner.

The rooms are really cheap, Rp60,000 so you get what you pay for. The rooms are small and the walls are dirty but the bed fairly clean and comfortable. There are no windows and just random people around all the time. The mosque is down the street so the prayers wake you up at 5am because there are holes above... More

Bathroom was very basic and not so clean. Water shower only. I checked out the roof top but it was dirty and not organised. I won't stay this guest... More

The small but clean rooms i have stayed in had no windows and it was hot, so the fan was not really enough. Cold shared showers. No bedbugs (I read that on TA...). Toast and coffee are included in the allready low price. The staff was really really nice!
