We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013. The first night, there was some confusion with the rooms and we ended up having to stay at the lower building (not the one beside the desk or with the gardens, but the one lower down another ramp/flight of stairs). This room was not great. It was tiny with barely enough room to walk around the bed. It also had a moldy smell, and a funny line of ants going in and out. The washroom was also dark and dingy.
The next night, we were moved up to the main building. This room was actually quite nice! Smelled clean, balcony etc. If we had just stayed here, I would have rave reviews.
The staff was also not great. Although kind and perfectly friendly, they were not very helpful in terms of trekking maps or arranging transportation elsewhere. We asked about prices for transport and they never got back to us. We ended up walking up to the Aditya homestay and arranged our transportation there, as they were more helpful. Their hiking map was also FAR more detailed and far better than the one at Karangsari! My advice is that regardless, go grap this map from Aditya.
Frankly, although the upper room was pretty, Aditya was nicer for better value. If you can, stay there.
