We booked on Agoda with a different hotel, but apparently despite having a booking they were full and moved us down the street to the Raka House. We paid 25 American dollars a night, including breakfast.
First off, the good... The rooms are huge and quite nice. The bathroom was also large, with a separate shower and bath. It was very clean with a pleasant view. Bed and pillows were both good. The location is excellent, being very close to all the shops and cafes, but down one of the side streets. The pool is small, but pleasant. Finally, the breakfast wasn't outstanding, but it was good enough.
I'm going to have to agree with most people on here about the staff being strange. My girlfriend and I have met a lot of great Balinese people while we were here (so we don't think it was a cultural thing) but the staff here was really frustrating. Every single time you come or go from the building you will be asked by at least two people where you are going. Nothing wrong with that, but when you answer, you will feel judged if you aren't going on a trip booked through them for the day. It actually feels a little creepy after a while.
Overall, it was a decent place, but I wouldn't stay here again. There are sooo many nice looking guesthouses in Ubud, all for competitive prices that I wouldn't chose the Raka House.
