Over-hyped and in need of a makeover
Jalan Pamugaran Bulak Laut, Pangandaran (in one of the laneways) T: (0265) 639 436
The main reason to stay at this cosy spot is for the laidback backpacker atmosphere and not for the rooms.
The communal area is a fantastic spot to socialise and meet new people or simply just relax and have a beer. But you pay a premium for this vibe, as the rooms are old and the beds of the foam variety only. The cold water bathrooms have Western toilets, but they are still not anywhere near the standard of the cheaper rooms of Bamboo House. In short, this place is in need of a makeover to keep pace with the competition. The decision to stay here is essentially for the aforementioned vibe and it has to be said that it is a compelling reason indeed, especially if travelling solo. Free WiFi and breakfast is also included in the tariff and make this place one of the top spots in town despite ageing facilities.
