“Warm, Caring, Friendly - Home Stay”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Sadly I was only in Ubud for 2 nights but thanks to a great recommendation I was told to stay here & that suggestion was a very good one!

Made & Kadek & their family were so lovely, kind and friendly. You weren't just another guest filling up a room. Your a person that they want to get to know.

The room (not shared- your own) was very clean & there's even good locks. There is no air conditioner but the fan works a treat.

Breakfast is totally divine. Be sure to have banana Pancakes - when I say the best in Bali - please believe me. I already want more :-)

The home is in walking distance to many great stores & the monkey Forest.

If your wanting to do tours just ask Made & Kadek. They are only too happy to help. If you can I suggest going to the dance show that Made & his daughter perform in. True Bali style dancing, Singing & fire dancing. Amazing!

Also Kadek runs a shop - be sure to check out the lovely scarves & dresses :-)

Also if you need a driver made & Kadek have a very friendly driver with great English - Dewa was a fantastic driver & guide! :-)

I am rating this place a 5, because for the low price and the fact it meets or exceeds expectations. Lets start with the hosts, a nice smiling helpful family that makes you feel at home very quickly. The house is within a cluster of 3-4 other homes, in typical Bali style. Not much open space has been left within the compound, but that just might one of its charms as the place as it brings you very close to local culture of the average Balinese. A not so friendly barking dog welcomes you but stays away. Though you have to be careful around the dog as it is never in a good mood. On top of that their are a bunch of rooster that will wake you up at dawn if not sooner. The breakfast is great and served right outside the room. Don't expect much from this place in terms of quality of furnishings. This place is meant for the young and adventures backpackers and therefore everything is just very basic. You cant go wrong for the price.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the upper floor to avoid guest traffic movement and other noise

We stayed at Jangkrik for 3 nights in the summer. From the moment we arrived there it felt like we were part of the family. Made, Kadek & their family are so nice. They help you to arrange for dinner, trips and other things. Breakfast is really delicious and is different every day. Rooms are very basic, but the shower and the beds are really comfortable.16 euros per night for 2 persons including very nice breakfast is so cheap, that i had to give them 5 stars, for the given value. Ofcourse there are better accomodations when you pay like 100 euro/night, but for only 16 euros it really exceeded my expectations. The locations is perfect in the centre of ubud. Everthing is only minutes walking away. We wished we had stayed for like a week so we could have enjoyed everything more and do more things in and arround Ubud. In the night there are soms roosters crowing. The first night we couldn't sleep much, but after that we get used to it and we slept very good. The roosters are crowing everywhere in Ubud, so it will be the same at other places. Bring earplugs for the first night, or enjoy the traditional Ubud.

Made and Kadek are such warm and friendly people. They welcome you and make you feel at right at home. I love the atmosphere here as the sun sets. It is beautiful.. especially if you are on the top story. The rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated nicely with teek wood furniture. There are friendly animals to play with and don't forget the delicious breakfasts. Thanks to Made and Kadek for such a beautiful homestay.

My husband and I stayed at Jangkrik Homestay in July 2012. We found the room to be fine especially for the low price. The breakfast is crepes filled with some kind of delicious sauce then sprinkled with fresh coconut. They were scrumptious! My mouth still waters when I think about these crepes! The owners were extremely helpful and fun to talk to. They really made our stay in Ubud special. I would highly recommend this homestay! When we moved on to Lovina, Made went out of his way to get us bus tickets. We really appreciated their kindness. You will love them too!

I booked 3 nights but ended up staying 11! For the money I paid for the room and what you get its amazing. Delicious breakfast including fresh fruit, smiles from kadek and made and their kids every time you see them, super comfy bed and a squeaky clean room. Loved it. the location is excellent and as I was on a yoga binge it was perfect.. 5 to 10 min walk to yoga barn and to cocos supermarket. I also hired a bicycle for 30 k rupiah a day 10 m from jangkrik entrance. Amazing stay. Its basic but brilliant value!
