“Good location, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

I come to Pangandaran more often, but it's been 3 years ago that we have stayed here, but I still recommend people who go to Pangandaran to stay at Mango guesthouse. Very friendly staff, clean rooms and good service and at that time very cheap.
Good location near the beach, a little off the road which is also nice.

Last summer I discovered a new warung at the corner near the alley that leads to mango. They have good food also!

First tip for travellers.. If you are getting a bus to pangandaran.. There's no need to get a taxi as the bus drivers and taxi men would have you believe. Instead, walk towards the beach (ask a local if you are not sure) you'll probably have to pay a small entrance fee, the equivalent of about 15p. Mango guesthouse is signposted. The owner is as friendly as many as said, as is her brother who took us on a full tour, including puppet makers, villages, rice plants, green valley, green canyon and turtles as well as a little swim on a beach all for approx £15 each. You could probably get cheaper if you looked elsewhere but I'm not sure if all that would be included. He also explained quite a lot. The room is spacious with a private bathroom, yes there were ants and other little bugs but more by the door and they certainly didn't bother us at night.. If you are a bit funny about that maybe look elsewhere.. But for us as backpackers expecting that sort of thing, it's not a problem. There is no hot water and the water is sometimes smelly. Breakfast is amazing, very tasty coffee, fruit and a choice of nasi goreng or pancakes, all to be enjoyed on the chairs outside your room. It's a 30 second walk from bars, restaurants and the beach. They were very happy to get our tickets for our onward travel to yogyakarta (taking a cut I'm sure). All in all, excellent value for what you pay... I would highly recommend for travellers.

First night we stayed in a room without air conditioning for 150.000IDR. It was way too hot so the second night we stayed in an AC room which she said was 250.000IDR, way too expensive. So she dropped it to 200.000IDR. The room had so many ants, so we looked at other rooms (turned out they all had ant problems). Our neighbor was very rude the second night. We asked him to quiet down as it was 11:30 at night. He was a smartass about it and asked if it was too late for us. Really? He refused to quiet down. The worst part is that the staff were part of the group making the noise.

On another note, the breakfast was good and the main lady that runs the place is very nice. So it is unfortunate that we had a bad time here. We ended up walking right across the way to Bamboo House and got a room that was the same size with air conditioner for 150.000IDR. The lady at Bamboo is also really informative if you have questions about travel :)

we stay in this guest house after reading high score in Agoda. We book 2 rooms with AC and happy with our stay. The room is clean & spacious. The location is just few minutes walk to beach. Highly recomended when you visit Pangandaran.

Tini, Ang and family were great hosts... Provided us with everything we needed. Their company definitely made the trip worthy. Location is great too, not far from the beach, aswell as the local hang out at malibu bar. scootering, surfing, national park and green valley - all worthwhile here. Will be back for sure!

intended on staying 1 night in pantai but had too much fun and stayed here for a few extra days. the staff are lovely... the trips they organise are cheap and feel local, i mean they know people so it didnt feel commerical. went in a car and on motorbikes and went to the green valley which was cool. the hotel itself is probably one of a kind. super cheap and super clean. amazing breakfast too. im sure next time we go back the prices would have gone up because the value for money is amazing!!!! Thanks Tinni, it was lush!!

We stayed for 3 nights at the Mango Guesthouse, the owner and her staff are super friendly and always ready to help! The domain is very clean and the rooms are nice! You can get some good tips about things to do in and around Pangandaran. We had a very good time over there, pleasant experience..
