I stayed at Flashback's for two nights after a wonderful five days in Amed. And I was happy with the room and setting of Flashback's. It's tucked away from the main street, so you don't hear any of the road traffic, and it feels like a jungle oasis from the busy-ness of the town. There are lots of trees and each room has its own private feel. I had a shared bathroom which wasn't a problem at all. There are safety locks and both guests that I shared with and I got along fine.
I didn't have AC, just a ceiling fan, so it was a bit hot at night, but I managed, especially with the great rain-shower to cool off whenever I needed it. There's hot water available, but in tropical Bali, having a cold shower is way better. And it's never frigid cold-- just cool.
There was a nice small, clean pool with saltwater on the premises which was another great way to cool off. I took a dip several times while I was staying there. It was more convenient than the beach and private-- just for the guests at Flashback's.
One of the highlights was the included breakfast-- simple toast, coffee, and fruit plate, but the bread was freshly baked and delicious and you had choices of toppings. And the fruit plate was quite packed. And there was enough coffee for two good cupfuls! Yum!
It was in a perfect location, close walk to the beach, right on one of the main streets near lots of restaurants and shops. One great warung a few doors down, Pregina Warung, is worth the slightly higher prices. Their bebek goreng was AMAZING!!!! (that's crispy duck).
Thanks for a great stay!
