Ari Homestay
Ranked #5 of 19 Candidasa B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 10, 2011

The sign says "NO Nasi Goreng" and that makes a great promise.
Instead, you get great Hot Dogs & THE BEST HAMBURGERS in SE Asia
I walked the entire main street of Candi, and it was almost vacant of visitors.
At Ari Homestay / Hot Dog Emporium, 13 people laughed together in a fantastic meeting.
Gary caused this with his wonderful ability to bring strangers together.
At Gary & Tyo's Cafe, the finest of people are gathered, and looked after, to enjoy a magical meeting of all nations.
If you go to Candi Dasa... GO TO THIS PLACE.. YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

We stay with Gary & Tyo at Ari Homestay because all are welcome there. Although they mainly cater for backpackers there are rooms for couples etc and breakfast rivals most hotels They do also cater for long term residents. If you are up at 6am you can meet some of the locals across the street drinking coffee and watching the sunrise. The hotdog & burgers open up downstairs late morning. If it's a bit hot & sticky pop up to The Water Garden, buy a beer and swim in a 5star pool. The monkey shrine is up on the hill out of town heading north, just before the beautiful white sandy beach.

Room Tip: Take Perama Bus from Kuta. The depot is next door

we stayed here for 1 night, ended up staying 4! Gary and Tyo make you feel very welcome and are a good source of information to help you on your way and nothing is too much trouble. Ten minutes away from candidasa is a great beach called white sand beach, not to be missed. Plenty restaurants nearby, but no atm in the village but you can catch the little orange bemos outside ari homestay and they will take you to the atm and back for $3.

Ari Homestay is in the main street of Candi Dasa and a major gathering point for interesting travellers from all corners of the globe looking to discover "the real Bali", not the hurdy gurdy of Kuta and points south. Hosts Tyo and Gary are wonderful people who go out of their way to help, whether its points of interest or the best way to get from there to the wonderful sights, experiences and beaches of east Bali. At just 155,000 rp a night and the biggest breakfast imaginable, it is good to see that there is still great value to be had in this part of Bali.
Highly recommended after years of servicing the travellers of East Bali. Always coming up with new ideas, Tyo and Gary have launched an attached burger/hot dog cafe which is the talk of the town and a regular stop for even those staying at nearby luxury hotels.
