“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed in Pande Homestay for 5 nights and cannot recommend the place enough. Having stayed in over 70 "budget" hotels & guesthouses on a trip around most of South East Asia and India, this was by far our favourite! First of all the price was excellent by Ubud standards. The room was SUPER clean and while still basic enough compared to an upmarket hotel still had a really strong wifi, wardrobe, dressing table, locker, fan, comfy bed, clean sheets and hot water shower. There was also a stack of books in the room for use while staying. The room was immaculate and cleaned thoroughly daily (practically unherd of in anywhere else we stayed in for this type of price range). We had the first room on right of the complex (double).

The complex itself is typical Bali home set up with the family home, kitchen building, family temple all pocketed around a stunning garden setting which is very well kept. We were served breakfast on our porch each morning with tea & coffee, fresh fruit and banana pancakes or toast with butter & jam, no matter what time of the morning we emerged from our room. There was always a flask full of hot water on our table throughout the day for more tea and coffee or it was a simple request away. It has a great location, only a short stroll away from anywhere you could want to go while discovering the town. We felt very safe while staying here as there are always family members around, our doors and windows were rarey kept closed.

The real gem that sets this place apart is the wonderful family who own it, especially the couple who runs it. Super friendly and always stopping for a chat. She is keen to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and very accomadating to all your needs. Also the friendly family dog "Doggie-Doggie" (a great guard dog) loves a good rub, once he gets used to you being around. It is also possible to book tours and other transport through them.

The only SMALL negative I would have is the fan is not particularly strong so if you are used to aircon this might not be completely comfortable, but was not a deal breaker for us!

Altogether a highly recommended "budget" stay not to be missed

Lovely place, lovely family. They make you feel as a special guest in the house. The owners, Made and Wayan are very friendly, always offering help and a sincere smile. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with hot water, fan, closet, desk and even some nice books to borrow. The garden is fantastic and they have a family temple. They also have a really cool and friendly dog, his name is Doggy-doggy! I would totally come back again.
