“nice homestay, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Comfortable rooms with good breakfast. The roosters are loud in the mornings, but that seems to be the nature of homestays in bali. The family is nice and welcoming! The shower didn't always get hot, but this wasn't a huge inconvenience. Fan only, but it was cool enough at night that you didn't need AC

Based on good reviews we came here, and it is a lovely homestay with good rooms and nice staff, great breakfasts, but the problem we had was with the shared roof space on the upstairs rooms: you can hear Everything your neighbours are talking about and even when they brush their teeth. I had to ask some 2am new arrivals to be quiet as I could hear them as if we were sharing a room! Not great, and unfortunately it's a in built issue with the homestay, nothing to do with the service, sorry!

My first night I stayed in a hotel - the next day I went in search for something better and I found Jangkrik. Living with a local, friendly family, while you can still have full privacy is the perfect combination. The home made breakfast is an experience not to be missed and ask Made to arrange a body massage in the comfort of your room. I'm definitely directing all my friends and family to Jangkrik if they ever go to Bali. Great value for money and a perfect social solution for a solo traveller.

Jangkrik is the kind of homestay where you immediately feel at home. Thanks to Made and his family, our three day Bali trip was unforgettable. Great value for money. I know where I'll be staying the next time I am in Ubud.

Friendliness and kind hospitality is what we got for my stay in Jangkrik. Location is about 10 mins motorbike ride to Ubud market. The homestay locate a bit inside a peaceful neighborhood off Hanoman street. After the steps, you just walking straight to find the sign of Jangkrik homestay.

A fair number of places in Indonesia that call themselves a "homestay" are, in fact, just guesthouses. Jangkrik is the real thing. The six rooms are inside a large family compound with more rooms for family members than for guests. There's a constant traffic of people, the kids and their friends, cats, a dog, and chickens. For all that, it's a peaceful place. The rooms are at the back of the compound and we basically never heard any noise from Jalan Hanoman, just outside the gate.

Our room was spacious, spotless and comfortable. The exterior was very pretty with good Balinese stonework. The interior, while modern and tidy was actually a bit stark with no decoration at all. The furniture was good quality, but rather neutral. Northing inside the room said, "Bali". A textile wall hanging, a framed print, a couple of masks would have been welcome and brightened the place up.

Breakfast -- banana pancakes or eggs and toast, each with a fruit plate, plus coffee or tea was good and of sufficient quantity. Wifi worked well.

Made and Kadek were welcoming and helpful. Kadek was especially sparkling and fun.

The location is on the southern end of Jalan Hanoman. There are lots of shopsand restaurants nearby, but it is a significant walk -- 15-20 minutes -- to the palace and market and other attractions of central Ubud.

Room Tip: We had one of the two downstairs rooms. From our veranda we looked across a walkway and narrow, pret...

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute. We did our booking with email and the comunication was easy and quick responded. They organised our pick up from the airport and we could check in after midnight without any trouble. Made and Kadek are lovely hosts and go out of their way to meet all your needs. The rooms are clean with good ensuite bathrooms. Our night sleep was quiet, expect when the guests in our neighbour room started communicating on skype around midnight. The walls are thick but we assume the noice travels trough the roof quite well. The pancake for breakfast is just delicious and prepared any time we want it. It is a great place to stay right in the center of Ubud and still enjoy a quiet time. A great find at a good price.
We would come back and stay here again. Even the rooster in the compound did not disturb a great deal.

Dear Andy and Isabelle,

It was a pleasure to have you as guests in our homestay and we are glad you liked "every minute" of it. This is what we try to achieve with every customer that stays with us, whether it is for 1 night or for 1 month, every customer is just as important to us.

Please come back again the next time and bring all your friends along with you.

Thank you very much for your friendly and clear review.

See you soon again,

Made, Kadek, Nita, Komang and Wayan.
