Stayed here for two weeks while doing a language immersion course at Alam Bahasa.
Ibu Heru and her husband make you feel very welcome and love to chat and talk about the world etc in general.
Food provided is basic but tasty Javanese style and part of the whole cultural experience.
Other guests were great and made great companions when practicing Indonesian and exploring the local area.
Rooms are clean and comfortable.
