“Good for adventure terrible for sleep”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We rented the only Rumah Panggung because of the picture that shows a nice clean place with a unique design. What we got was a lodge with a very old dirty bathroom worse than a regular local bus station toilet. The water heater came from the era of my mother that only has two choices : too hot ot too cold. No water container even of a bucket to collect water. No sink.

The bed were not as shown in their picture. They were nothing but pieces of sponge covered by full of nasty spots old linens, equipt with some very thin old blankets not cleaner than the linens and the pillows are just as bad.

To add with the beauty of this place, the 1st floor of this Rumah Panggung doesn't have a bedroom. Meaning, it's just a room where they put a bed for you to sleep in. People can see you sleep in it as soon as you open the front door; and if you happened to stay in it during holiday season, you might get a very early wake up call from a bunch of students shouting and calling each other from your door step to the surrounding hills.

Breakfast was dull and my last hope was the strawberry farm. Voila....! No strawberry in it. They just harvested the strawberry the day before we came and the complimentary juice tasted more like a mix of tomatoes than strawberry.

For a budget place, I didn't expect a 5 star acomodation or service, but what we got was way below average.

Definitely will never come to this place ever again.

I was recommended by a friend, so last weekend I took my family there and stayed for 2 nights. It's a camp site in the middle of pine forest of Lembang, a mountain area near Bandung. Very cold, and fresh air. You can choose to stay in a tent, or in wooden house.

We stayed in the wooden house. It's basically a small 4x4 studio type wooden house with 1 bathroom and balcony at the back of the house. No TV and all other fancy stuffs, but hot water is available. Polite and helpful staffs. Cleanness...well, it's "acceptably" clean for a camp site, and quite well maintained. We paid approx. USD 50 per night including breakfast for three (chicken fried rice with sausage and crackers, but dont expect too much on its taste..hehe). They will also provide bonfire at night (free of charge) plus few pieces of corns for us to grill. There are outbound facilities for kids (flying fox, high ropes, ATV, etc) within the site, and the ticket is very affordable too. It was really a different experience for us, and my kids enjoyed it...but only on the first day..LOL.. on the second day, they already got bored... However, there are many places you can visit in Lembang area (within 10km from the camp site, 20 minutes by car), including the famous volcanic crater called "Tangkuban Perahu", and a very beautiful tea fields. So, I took them there, and they were very happy.

Anyway, I second what other reviewers shared here. It is a very nice place to escape from noisy, crowded, and polluted life of big cities...

Room Tip: There are two types of wooden house, VIP and Standard. Go for the VIP house because it's newer...

Don't judge the book by it's cover, it is so true with this place.
The main entrance is through the restaurant which i personally not really keen on.
It is old style with big open space, 80's music stage, plastic chair and flowery (plastic) table cloth.
But once you see the camp inside of a teak forrest (Tectona grandis), it is so amazing.
No one will pay attention if this place lack of any facilities because sleeping in the middle of woods certainly rise an adventure sense in you.
The price is so affordable and guarantee of coming back again.
