If you want a nice en cheap place to stay, Ari Homestay is your place! Simple, clean and with a gorgeous breakfast. My husband and I stayed there for 3 days before to go to Gili Islands. Gary and his wife are really lovely.

Basic but comfortable and clean rooms, perfect for budget travelers. Cheap prices. The best is Gary, his wife Tyo and all the staff. Always happy, really helpful and friendly. Close to everything in Candi Dasa. The burgers and hot dogs are the best we had ever tried! Tasty and cheap! We'd been twice and we'll come back!

I have written previously of the fun, style, value & FUN of this CandiDasa icon. Some further notes are added, because.. it remains & retains all of those features. Yet... there is more: The Hot Dog Emporium, a culinary institution throughout Bali, has again raised its standards. The additions to the menu have lifted my tastebuds to a Heavenly place.... More

The main thing you need to know about Ari Homestay is that the owner Gary is a legend. We stayed in the fan room, which was kept clean and felt like home. The food in the burger shop is good quality with free beers at 6:00pm and a HUGE free breakfast, Ari Homestay is the place to be!

Stayed here for only 1 night with my boyfriend, but would have stayed longer if we had no other plans. Such a nice place, for that money! The staff was nice, the breakfast so good, the location (with seaview) was beautiful and the town Candi Dasa is not that touristic, so nice to go and spend a couple of days!!... More

Me and my friends stayed here for one night. We didn't have any booking when we arrived, but Gary met us with a great smile. The atmosphere was very calming and comfortable. Gary, the owner, has the best personality! Always in a good mood and telling jokes. His family and the staff is very kind and helpful. If there's anything... More

You come for a room, you stay for the atmosphere that Gary, the owner, has created. Good opportunities to meet other backpackers, good burgers and hot dogs, good advice from the staff. The rooms themselves are correct but nothing to rave about.
