OK place to stay the night before the early 3:30am start to trek Ijen crater. Lots of rooms, and pretty comfy beds, but fairly basic and we had a cockroach in our room. There doesn't seem to be anything else in the area so you are limited to buying your food and drink there. They serve quite a good dinner... More

Most people come here for one night to see Ijen the next morning and so did we. The rooms are bad, staff is unfriendly and slow, WiFi does net work, restaurant is overpriced and breakfast is close to being a joke. If you come here bring your own food and water and get excited for Ijen (which is amazing) cause... More

We were forced to stay here despite booking the Katimoor hotel as part of our tour (we were told the Katimoor was full). Having read other reviews we had extremely low expectations, however the room we had was manageable for one night. At first the room smelt suspiciously like detergent as if to mask other smells, then when going to... More

Everything that was written before was confirmed during our short stay at Arabica: mould on the walls, very dirty bedroom and public areas, no service, noise, stains on the bed sheets. Bring your own towel and sleeping bag. Wifi does not work but there is hot shower although I was too disgusted to take a shower. If like us you... More

(for a long hike, trust me : it won't be enough!!) * Pricey dinner (IDR 50.000,- per person) * And dirty... More

It’s a traditional indo homestay, room was okie but wall very very thin, not even consider a wall, more like a partition, hahaha. The restaurant with very few selections of food, like 6? Nearby there’s nothing so you leave with no choice but to eat there. Breakfast is simple. I don’t think I can stay here for more than 1... More

Assigned room & bed are reasonably clean though furnishing / mattress were old. Bathroom was of acceptable standard. Our assigned room was spacious & fits three person comfortably with an extra mattress. Hot water, towel, soap, toilet paper are available and no unwanted insects in our room. Staff are generally laid back but helpful. We are not fussy travelers so... More

With the limited accom in the area, this might not be too bad a choice if you are assigned to their bigger & better room but we were not that lucky. Other things that I wholly agree with the other reviewers is that their 'breakfast' of 2 breads is very disappointing & their dinner is overpriced. We had booked the... More
