Reviewed October 1, 2012

Central, difficult to find, but locals helped us to find it. The room was perfect quiet. Quite some moskitos, but after we switched the fan on as recommended, none of them managed to come to our sleeping room. Great quite sleep and breakfast brought to the room by the Dutch owner. Very good value for money, privacy and quiet central stay.

Collins' definition states that "A bathroom is a room in a house that contains a bath or shower, a washbasin, and sometimes a toilet".Hence, when booking a room with a private bathroom I expect to find all of the followings. At Indah homestay there is none. The toilet was a hole in the floor (and there was no possibility to flush) and the rest of the bathroom was a tap with scarce water that was falling into a bucket (that you had to use to flush the toilet). Spider-webs are included in the service! The owner should specify somehow the conditions of the private bathroom...

When asked about whether there was at least a common washbasin to spit when brushing your teeth (otherwise, you had to do it in the hole on the floor),the owner, (a dutch woman married with a local) said that that was a typical Indonesian bathroom. This was the next to last place I stayed in Indonesia (all in the same price range, some actually cheaper than this room) and I NEVER found such a condition.

In the room there is not even a hang or a shelf to put your stuff. It is the first place where I go where the owner, (which was at least nice and polite),suggests you to go and ask information to one of the travel agencies instead of telling them herself!


I give "poor" and not "terrible" because the location is good (but bring a torch for the night as you have to walk through dark narrow streets) and the breakfast is included.

We stayed at Indah Homestay for one night in August 2012. Overall, I think the homestay is a good value. The rooms are basic but clean, and the beds are reasonably comfortable. The room rate includes breakfast (also basic, but good). We really liked that the homestay was located off the main road in the middle of a residential area. Watching the community congregate in the courtyard in front of the inn made our stay a little more interesting. My only complaint is that there were a lot of mosquitos. The room did not have a mosquito net over the bed, but rather netting over all of the vents. This wasn't super effective, but we managed with bug spray and being extra careful about leaving the door open (especially at night).

Wonderful view of the mountains and far enough away from the main road so you don't hear the traffic. Owners were very helpful and friendly. Cheap, basic, but for people on a budget it has everything you need. Close to everything in Senggigi and a short walk away from the beach. I had a wonderful stay.

We stayed one night at Indah Homestay. Susanne, the owner, was very welcoming and went out of her way to help us with our ownward travel. The surroundings are beautiful, well worth the 5 minutes walk from the main street. Rooms are small but clean and breakfast is basic but good.

We stayed two nights at Indah homestay and enjoyed its location in the middle of the kampung.
The locals are very frendly and so is the owner of the place, Suzanne. It's a five minutes walk to the beach and restaurants. Rooms are basic, have comfortable beds and are clean.

For a budget place in Senggigi, where not so much is really budget, Indah Homestay seems to offer relatively good value with small but clean rooms in a nice garden, in the middle of the kampong just off the main street, a 15 minute walk from the centre. We payed 143.000 rp per night, including a simple but tasty breakfast. Indeed, the bathroom is a little basic with a squat toilet and no sink. The owners are very friendly and helpful!
