I stayed here for a few nights. The hotel has a good location and friendly service, but the rooms are not as clean as I would have hoped. Especially the bathroom was filthy. The rooms are big and there is a good bed, and we even had our own balcony. They have wifi which worked in the rooms too. We had breakfast here once, and it took 45 mins to complete three orders, and we ended up getting something else than we ordered. The garden is beautiful! All in all, mixed feelings about this place.

This place is one of the most beautiful places I have every stayed in. The moment I stepped in the gate there was lush greenery and gazebos and hammocks to hang out in as well as an inviting lobby where everyone can just hang out and chill.

Since there was 4 of us we decided to take the 2 level family apartment which was HUGE. If you have sleeping bags to spare 8 people could sleep there easily. The downside is there's only one bathroom. So we took turns going to the toilet next to the lobby.

The bathroom was also problematic in terms of inconsistent hot water as well as drainage being severely blocked. Whenever one of us took the shower the other 3 people had to endure showering in ankle deep water. Despite telling the management of this problem there was not much that they could do at the time.

Another small issue was the wifi which was a little inconsistent in the rooms but that can be fixed by going to the lobby where you'll meet people from all over the world. Way better than socialising through the internet.

The staff was super helpful especially the owner Ari. He was very welcoming and helped arrange a car for us to return to Kuta at a much cheaper price than the taxis service in the streets.

Location wise however is excellent. It's really close to the center and is walking distance to the city center, Ubud Palace and Ubud market. It also directly behind a clinic just in case of a medical emergency. And if you're looking for cultural performances don't look to far as the Pura Dalem Ubud is right across the street and has different performances every night.

All in all I would definitely return here but hopefully by the time I return they have resolved all maintenance issues.

Room Tip: If you want to mingle with the other travellers get the dorm rooms.

In Da Lodge was by far one of the best places we've stayed in all of South East Asia. The "rooms" were big enough to fit 4 comfortably and felt more like a mini house than "just a room." Our room had 3 rooms, hot water, a kitchen, and a balcony outside. Also, at the price we paid, it was practically a steal! The couple that owns it is fantastic and very down to earth! Feel free to sit down with them and you're in for a great talk!

The location was also great. It was walking distance to many shops and this fantastic hookah bar. Also, the people who worked here were able to book Scooter rentals if needed so you can explore around. It was great! However, sometimes you didn't need to since they offered amazing (and cheap) food and just a great atmosphere to relax since it was so calm and quiet.

Maybe the best part of the trip was one of the staff members. Salwa was my mother away from home. She took exceptional care of my friends and I. We could always come to her if we had a problem! I even got over charged by some cops for being a tourist and Salwa immediately went back with me and got all my money back! It was fantastic! Make sure you don't get on her bad side. She also has the cutest kid of all time. Also known as the destroyer since he's mischievous! On top of that, she cooks great meals! She's an all star in every aspect. I would definitely stay at In Da Lodge again just to hang out with Salwa!

This hotel is good!

We had a ground floor family room with connecting door (room 10).
It's very good located! Opposite the hotel starts a trekking (starts at Ibah hotel) and next street you can start walking to the ricefields (towards Sari Organic).

Really a good place if you want to be centrally located, but quiet and the perfect start for the beautiful nature around you.

Oh.. and the beds are good.

I booked a family room for 4 in Nov for my family trip. It is a double storey apartment with 2 beds (1 single and one super single) on the ground floor and a double bed on the second floor. There is a sofa and shelves full of books. No AC but ceiling fans and additional fan is enough. Very cold at night too. This is definitely not comparable to those hotels and villas where you stay in to enjoy the facilities. It was only a place for our five nights' sleep considering we were out the whole day for activities. I see that the conditions of the single-storey rooms are better, with a table and chairs outside for dining. Toilet is very spacious, water pressure is fantastic with hot water supply. However, sometimes the water from bathing does choke up a little and the tap can be hard to use. Near to Ubud market and Circle K (convenient store is just outside). Receptionist is very friendly and helps us whenever we needed help. They even help us call for a Spa we have chosen ourselves for free pick-up. Mee goreng is nice at only 25000rp.

Room Tip: Family unit tends to be more run-down. If travelling in groups of 4, choosing 2 twin room would be b...

There are so many wonderful things about In Da Lodge! Here are some of the highlights:
1. Super good price for what you get. It was around $10 a night split between 4 people and we got a huge room with a queen and 2 twins. The bathroom was clean and water pressure was fantastic. Our room had a balcony of sorts too, which was a nice add-on. The other people we were travelling with had a similar room but with 2 queens.
2. Staff are super friendly! @ people (I think from Norway) own the guesthouse and a local family runs it. The lady at the front desk is one of the nicest people you'll meet, but don't get on her bad side because she can be a force (we had a run in with some cops that she dealt with handily!).
3. The food at the guesthouse is ridiculously good value. Noodle an rice dishes for 15k and decent size breakfasts for the same.

I highly recommend looking in to this place!

we booked a family room for 4 people. room is big, with the balcony and sofa. there was a travel adapter in the room since the socket is different from our place. no air conditioner, only one fan but not necessary since environment inside hostel is fresh and cool. toilet is so so, since we only need basic service. however hot water is boiled by gas, sometimes too hot or too cold. overall cleanliness satisfaction is around 70%, but it s ok enough. the garden at reception is nice, with alot of books to read. booking taxi, laundry is easy and good service. the hostel is only 7 mins walk from market, there s also money exchanger and mini mary nearby. in gneral, it s good for value.
