“I wish i never had to go home again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Breakfast: wake up in the morning, tell one of the staff you want breakfast they might speak weird sound of english but actually they mean, "stay at your room, I'll bring for you". but the thing is im not a fan of banana. cz mostly they served banana in everyfood they served.

bedroom: bed was nice, really comfy. romantic. toilet is perfectly clean. but the wall was too thin till a girl next room asked us too slow down our voices. 5 am in the morning, you probably get annoyed by roaster sounds and bird at 7am. I wasn't annoyed by them but some people does.

landscape: the staff have done really nice job to maintaining cleanliness and beauty of their garden. the first tie i came i to check out i was happy already. oh yeah, and also you will never hear the sound of vehicle outside! cool!

pets: they have few birds(they can talk, but the same words i guess) a firendly dog (which he will greet you in the morning by come at you when you are having breakfast. he will leave if you dont play with him)

I love this place i dont mind the noises from nature. oh yeah you also can rent a motorcycle from them only 50k a day.

Room Tip: try room number 4.

Catching up on reviews, so do note that I was actually here in Sept 2011. Hoping Trip Advisor lets me post the late review!

I paid for a single en suite room, or something along those lines, which landed me a in HUGE room with two twin beds and a recently renovated bathroom. It was nothing special, but clean and cozy. The bathroom did smell a bit musty at times as it was not well ventilated.

I loved, loved, loved eating breakfast on my terrace, and would amble out there early each morning. I'd just catch the eye of one of the friendly waiter-types, and he'd bring it out quickly. I did seem to receive exactly the same thing each morning, despite the sign at the front desk suggesting otherwise, but oh, well.

I found the front desk service just OK. Listen, it's a budget place, and not luxury. There's no milk for tea, not even the dry creamer I only appreciate when in Asia. But it's so well located, and I felt completely comfortable here as a female solo traveler.

The accommodation was simple, but clean and for the price we didn't expect much luxury. It's in the middle of Ubud and thus the perfect location. Everything in Ubud can be easily reached by foot.

The staff was nice and quiet. They offered us transportation and ideas for day trips in and around Ubud when we asked. You have to ask, they don't just provide and offer service you didn't ask for. That's totally okay for me.

The rooms are not sound-proof at all so go to bed early in order not distract your neighbors. Also in the morning you'll be woken up by chickens, insects, birds and other animal noise. This can be lovely when you went to bed early, it can be horrible when you planned to sleep in. However that's all you gonna hear, there's absolutely no noise from the streets or the neighboring properties. The bed was super comfortable.

The breakfast was good and there was always tea on our front porch. After the fourth day however it gets old: There is not a lot of variation.

There is a pool on Nick's Pension which you can use for free. Ask the staff how to get there. It's a couple of minutes by foot.

My husband and I stayed at Nick's Homestay in July 2012. We loved our bungalow room. We arrived earlier than check in time but since our room was already cleaned we got into our room right away. It was a quiet refuge from the busy Ubud streets. I loved being served breakfast on the front porch. The tea and fresh fruit salad was delicious.The room was clean and comfortable. I was sad to leave this place and would definitely stay here again.

Positively the location is just superb, right in the middle of Ubud but seemingly away from the hustle and bustle of it all. The service was terrible and we had the overwhleming feel that out prensence was unwelcome by the family. We had to go searching around in the morning for someone to get our breakfast and it felt like it was an annoyance to the staff. The room was simple and adequate but there was no fridge to store any perishables.
Overall difficult to rate as I had some lovely evenings on the balcony listening to a local band practicing and of feeling like I was immersed in local Bali life, but my first thoughts when thinking of this accommodation is of the poor quality of srvice and the attitude of the family who reside on site, hence the time in completing this review since we stayed.

Room Tip: There was quite a bit of noise in the mornings, but we quite liked it as it helped to create the sen...

We arrived in Ubud and went straight to Nicks, because of all great reviews. The owner sat down with us, just talking for 30 minutes and seemed really nice. Sadly, things got worse. In the night, we found bugs in our bed. We told the night worker that we wanted another room, but even thouh we showed him the bugs he wouldnt give us another room or try to help us at all. The next day we woke up with bites that ruined our ubud visit. You can use the pool at Nicks pension, but its a long walk.

The room was very comfortable and felt removed from the bustle of Ubud despite being located so close to the main shopping and eating thoroughfares. Was surprised by how new and clean everything in the room was considering the price. Would definitely stay here again.
