Why should lonley planet recomend a place with average prices, high for the location, dirty rooms and nothing to to near?
Dirty rooms, noisy hosts, bad wifi, tv that doesn't work..
I still don't get it...

Arrived Sengiggi having no where booked, a lot of places fully booked because it was New Years Eve.

Checked into the last room on the block of this places...very basic but at 150k we took it.

Wish we hadn't as we both got bedbugs, also the toilet blocked so had bedbugs plus a room that smelt like feaces.

Generally friendly staff although one of the 'brothers' tried to come on to my partner, and another 'brother' tried to come on to me too...not really what you want when you are obviously staying as a couple.

AVOID!

Cheap place to stay on your way to the Gili Islands at only 140k a night for a double room with breakfast. The rooms are a bit dingy but are comfortable enough. They come with a tv and DVD player although the bathroom doesn't have a sink!

It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the bars and restaurants in Sengiggi. Just around the corner from the homestead is a taxi stand where you can get a taxi to the harbour for the Gilis for around 60k.

I've been there a couple of nights in September 2013.
This place is out of the busy part of town, but you can walk there in 10 minutes along the road, or a little more walking on the beach, that's just on the other side of the road.
My room was quiet and clean - the owner told me that the rooms closer to the road can be a little noisy at times, there you can hear cars passing, but I was on the far end from the road and there it was absolutely ok.
No Aircon in my room, but for me a fan was OK: that means a cheaper accomodation. An average breakfast is included in the price.
Clean linen and towels, and a friendly staff make this place a good backpacker homestay: no frills but a basic and enjoyable accomodation, worth the asking price of 150K for a single traveller in high season - the same room is a little more expensive for 2 prople.

The Made homestay is located a 15 minute walk from the central strip of Sengiggi shops, hotels and restaurants, but is just behind a much quieter and nicer section of beach. There are also a few nice restaurants immediately across the street. The staff were really helpful and fun to chat with.

I had a room with a fan, though you could pay more and get an air conditioned room if required. The room itself was quite shabby, with the most basic bathroom. Pretty standard for typical backpacker accommodation really.

Wifi was a bit hit or miss.

I paid 150k and thought this was probably reasonable.

Room Tip: Choose between a room with air-con or fan.

I stayed at made homestay for 1 night, i found the room very clean and enjoyed the luxury of ac. I enjoyed the location as it was away from the husstle and noise of sengiggi, but still walkable in 15mins. There is a cool beach and resteraunt just across the road. I found the staff very friendly also.

Very basic rooms with fan or ac available for a very cheap price (from 100k for 2 people) with fast wifi and breakfast (which was good but not much)
Staff is really nice, laundry service and scooter rental (cheapest in the area!) is possible.
They are very helpful with everything from storing luggage for a day to getting the cheapest connection to the airport.
Made is a really nice guy and always helping.
It's located in batu bolong next to cafe wayan south of sengiggi just 1 hill or a quick walk on the beach away from the centre.
We liked it even better than staying In sengiggi because it is not so loud and hectic.
They have The most basic bathrooms with European toilet and a shower you can possibly get, but ok for the price and also pretty clean for asian budget accomodation standards.

Definitely very good value for your money!
