I’ve stayed at The Paica on 4-5 occasions from 2017-2020 and always found it to be exceptionally well managed, wonderfully kind staff always happy to help with great rooms and wonderful guests and terrific prices. It’s in a good location away from the Denpasar madness yet close enough to Canggu / Seminyak / Berawa for comfort. The very comfortable beds ensure a great night’s sleep in this very peaceful jungle-like environment. Guests I have found always to be highly interesting, good people from all parts of the world, many I’ve met here are lifelong friends. I met my partner & future wife here : ) Although Archie & his mate were a minor, brief problem they WERE evicted very quickly and were a once-only unique exception to the Family-like atmosphere that prevails all the times I’ve stayed for months. I’ve never had anything but a happy, comfortable time. Facilities are very good in the common area downstairs and self cooking is available after the supplied breakfast from 11:00am. Or many warnings, restaurants are nearby, GoFood also and Canggu only 10-15 minutes by bike. Tiara Gatsu The great supermarket is 5 minutes by bike as is Dalung close. The cute pool, while adequate caters for the hot lazy days. The selection of rooms is highly varied on 4 levels so should suite all needs. The Paica is a great venue well worth staying!! Highly recommended. I’m back as soon as Bali reopens!!! Written 8/9/2020.

There are 2 long-term guys (Archie and Bobby) who are not nice. When I arrived around 10 PM, the first thing I was asked by Archie was, if I'm going to drink with them. I said: "No, thank you." and his reply was "Why not?" kind of not accepting my answer. Once I was standing at the stairs at the Paica and didn’t recognize that he was behind me, then I heard from behind: “This is Sparta! Boom!” and he was pretending like kicking me down the stairs. When I turned around, he laughed out loud and told me to go away. He was drinking at that time. I remember that Bobby had a video of him (I think in a fast-food restaurant) when Archie was drunk, saying on that video that he wants to bully 3 other tourists just for fun. He also has a scar on his face from a fight. Bobby says that Archie is his best friend. He does the marketing for the Paica for free so he lives there for free and calls himself part of the staff. On my last day, Bobby started to ask me how I liked it at the Paica and I told him that they don’t have a proper CoWorking space as it’s claimed in the advertisement, also I didn’t like that my room had no windows but all the pictures show bright rooms with windows. He started to shout at me that everybody likes it, if there is something that I liked as well and other things like that. Well, then don't ask me. Of course, he was drinking. If there are guests who also like to drink, they will bring out drinking games and it’s going to be loud until late in the night. Of course, the owner doesn’t see that. When the owner is around, they behave like angels. On the day when I was checking out, the owner was there as well. Both, Bobby and Archie came to me and shook my hand very friendly, gave me a warm smile while looking into my eyes and saying goodbye to me. I was quite confused but later on, I figured out why they suddenly behaved nice. They want to look good to the owner so he doesn't tell them to leave.

Unfortunately, I had a really bad experience here that caused me to cut my stay short and immediately move to another hotel. My problem is with the American guy Bobby who helps run The Paica and his friend Archie, and want to put out a warning that The Paica is not a safe place for LGBT, black, or female travelers. On my first night, I was invited to drink with them, and as the night went on, the conversation seriously crossed some lines. I am a gay guy, and Bobby and his friend ended up going on a homophobic tirade to my face, going so far as to threaten violence, and also basically say that they would kill their kids if they turned out to be gay. On top of that, they also went after a female guest, wanting to know how much they would have to pay her to have sex with them, and ended up barging into her room while she was naked. She was furious of course. Also part of this conversation was about how it's totally cool for white guys to say n*gga, and Bobby's Russian friend was going on about how it's his duty as a Russian to hate black and gay people. Again, they are not guests, but partners of the owner and are always there. I felt massively disrespected. Assuming Bobby is going to read this, I want to let you know bro, whatever your personal views are, as someone running a hospitality business you have got to grow up and learn to treat your guests with respect. I actually liked the Paica, I've stayed at the place before, and the design and price are great. But now I'm going to have to warn people, if you don't want to be part of this bigoted bro-fest, stay far away from the Paica. To Kadek, the owner, I would have a serious talk with Bobby about his behavior at your establishment. Hope you can learn from this.

I did the booking with Booking.com, the price was really good and the lowest among all booking website, and on top on that, Booking.com offered free taxi from the airport to the hotel. The hotel offered to pick us up for IDR200,000, before that I already checked O-Jek they are charging only IDR107,000 for pickup. The lane into the hotel is hard to miss if you don't keep an eye out for it, it's a small lane that fits only one car. We were riding in an Avanza, he was having a hard time reversing as cars and bikes were parked around the property. Finally he managed to. We arrived pretty late about 2.30am, nobody was at the reception except guest. I tried knocking on the staff door but nobody answered so I called the property and someone picked up, he say he will contact his staff to allow us into the room. Our room is sort of like a duplex, downstairs is very spacious toilet. There's no TV in the room. There's a dead bug on the bed but not a big deal. The room is quite spacious but I think the bathroom is much bigger. The bed is comfy has 2 pillows and 2 bolsters. Air-cond is working good. No bottled water provided, we had to ask from the staff and they gave us a cup. Bathroom has a huge cupboard but there is no hanging space for clothes, more like to keep toiletries. Shower foam/Shampoo is provided however I didn't use it because it didn't look too clean from the appearance. Hot shower is good for first day, second day onwards the hot shower only worked for 10 mins and then lukewarm. Garbage was not disposed of properly, its littered around the ground where the scooters are parked even though there is a bin there. We rented a scooter with the property for IDR60k/24 hours. Very convenient to get around and definetely very good as Bali traffic is congested and packed with cars. You have to checked the total charges for the scooter as the staff recorded the scooter based on the date we checked in and not based on when we rented the bike. He put us for 5 days even though we arrived at 2.30am on the first night and only rented the bike at the following day around 3.30pm. After checking with the owner, he agreed that it was only 3 days. Staff is friendly, they greet us when they see us. However we didn't know the usage of the kitchen. We do see other guest helping themself or cooking behind the counter but we didn't dare to. Would be great if we were taught or given the info on how to utilize the facilities. But overall a good stay, we were mostly out exploring Bali and only get back to the hotel only at night.

We stayed at the Paica for 2 nights and can definitely recommend it! First of all, it is quiet. It is located in Kerobokan district on a small street, meaning you won't be hearing motorbikes under your window all the time. You might be woken up by a rooster but not by a motorbike :) All people, who work at this place are super friendly. Everything from the beginning till the end was neatly organized. We arrived from Sumba and were picked up and spent a half a day driving around Bukit. The next day we had an idea to see the east part of Bali and Kadek organized again a car with a driver for 10 hours. The offered price was honest! We liked a lot the way of driving, behavior and politeness of the driver. Breakfast is not included in the room price, which is already super low. However, you can order an omelette and coffee for 15k IDR, which is around 1$. Brewed coffee and nice omelette for 1$! Great value! Rooms are spacious and equipped with AC that is blowing somewhere but not into your head, when you sleep. Comfy bed, hot shower, AC, what else will you need?.. Payment can be done with a credit card (3% tax should be accounted). If we ever come back to Bali and Denpasar, the Paica will be the place number 1 on our list. The only minus I could remember about the place is high stairs, which might be an issue for elderly people and for those, who have issues with their knees.
