If you do t have too high expectations and you are used to travel in Asia, you will find that place very good. The dorm is quiet, no crazy music around, fans and 2 bathrooms. Ok the bathrooms are not the best ever but as I said if you are used to travel in Asia for cheap you will find... More

This place is near the jetty and centrally located but the place is run down. The toilet is just gross with no fresh water. The tap water smells horrible. Eventhough the toilet is cleaned everyday, you can still see a lot of worms in it and honestly its super gross. I would not recommend anyone to stay here regardless of... More

I was looking for a cheap place to stay, while the famous backpackers hostels were already full. I found Jessica and although it's a big dorm with 2 quite basic, dirty 'bathrooms', it was perfect value for money. If you don't have too high standards, you want to meet friends, but also enjoy your night rest, this is a good... More

Pondok Jessica has a nice Bungalows & Restaurant with a nice Location by the beach. The Rooms are huge but a little TLC would do wonder; especially with the water quality and all the cob webs collecting in the corner of the room!

I just turned up and enquired and was offered a room immediately. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I got the downstairs room with a veranda overlooking the street which was great for people watching. The room was clean and spacious, with a cute little en suite. It was ideally located on the main street without being too noisy... More

I stayed at Pondok Jessica after arriving at the island without any hotel reservations. Since it was high season, there were not a lot of rooms available around the island but luckily I found this place almost immediately. It is very close to where the boats arrive from Bali (at least where my boat arrived) and it is right next... More

After about 1 hour after check in someone from the staff unlocked the door while I was out and stole 550 000Rp from my wallet. They then blamed me for being a liar and a rich tourist who should be prepared to spend money on my travels...They also refused to give us a refund for the night. This is not... More

Also called Jessicas Homestay, Don't trust the guys at this place, within 3 hours of us checking in they'd stole 300,000rp out of my wallet and lifted my iphone out of my bag. Door was locked at all times but they insisted i had the only key ... then when we said fine we'll leave they couldn't give us a... More
