Cheap accom near Yoga Barn, Ubud?
2nd January, 2008
Hi folks, it's 23 years since I was in Bali so am v out of touch with accom etc! I'm planning on a week of stuff at Yoga Barn in Ubud but their rooms are beyond my budget - found a few places in my budget (ideally $20 a night for one person alone) but despite some research on google mas etc I can't out how close/far they are from Yoga Barn - your help would be appreciated! I looked at Secret Garden, Inten House, Gusti's Homestay, Mekar Suci Inn, Ubud Terrace Bungalows - most were on Booking.com and had no direct contact details for me to email and enquire. Any info you have or any other suggestiosn would be very welcome. I'm going in March which i know is not peak season - would it be better to just wait till I get there and look at places, as I imagine they won;t be full then?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

you worry FAR too much-which should not really be the right way for yoga-doers, which BTW has nothing to do with Indo at all.
Ubud: any 2nd hse has some rooms for rent and for much less as that 20US(? I guess-the types who even seem unaware to too ignorant to know about NZ/AU etc.$$?), and they do not bother with www and all that. Just confirm 1 nite on arr-decide and haggle for lower price for longstay if it suits-if not, try neighbor. Decent BF +free unltd. tea is mostly included.
Next confusing: how can we, interesetd but not going to google for such a thing, know where that barn is without telling? Do you REALly think it is such a famous place? But my suspicious mind tells me, that they likely have it far away from town- too inconvenient for other places.

ignore the previous post. only a little value added, indulgently rude, and nearly impossible to understand anyway.
if you haven't yet, have a look around the Ubud postings here on Travelfish and see if there is something that fits your style, desired location, and budget. you might consider booking accommodation for the first two nights or so and then looking for something that meets your needs after you've arrived. often times the cheapest and most interesting places don't have websites anyway, so you may stumble across someplace really cool that you would have never found anyway.
site admin Somtam2000 is pretty familiar with Ubud, living not too terribly far away, so he may have some specific recommendations for you. DLuek and a few other regular posters recently visited Bali as well, so hopefully they may have an idea or two as well.
have a good trip. cheers.

Thanks, Exacto! I won't humour Captainbkk with a response - travel forums seem to have a lot of people posting unnecessarily unpleasant stuff! Your advice was far more helpful! I am used to making long term trips in Asia where I dont need to think about accom in advance, just make it up as I go along, but I am now living in Brunei and this is a quick week away so I don't want to spend too long sorting stuff out on arrival. But I will check out the Ubud postings and see what I can find and then probably do as you suggest and just book a couple of nights to start with. Ubud was a sleepy little place when I was last there all those years ago, so I was a bit stunned to find so many places to stay when I had a look online - it's obviously expanded hugely and as I plan on doing early morning sessions at Yoga Barn, I would prefer to be fairly close so those mornings don't become even earlier...! Cheers, fishtails.

In March I wouldn't bother booking ahead. There are roughly 32,654,345 places to stay in Ubud and plenty of affordable places within walking distance of Yoga Barn. Just take a wander and see what you find.

Take a walk down Jalan Sugriwa - one street over from Jalan Hanoman. A bit less noisy than staying on the main streets. I stayed about a month at the Dewi-Antara homestay. Double bed, fan, breakfast and hot water for less than $10us. Some travelers were paying $6-8us. Found it safe and quiet. It is walking distance to the Yoga Barn and everything else in town.
I'm interested in what you think about Ubud now - I wouldn't use sleepy to describe it!

Thanks Somtam and Tyler for your very helpful replies... I have been away for a while and haven't been able access internet but have just seen these... I Heard there was a big festival on at that time and that beds may be in demand (don't know where I heard that!). I will book the initial date as it's a late arrival, and then check out your suggestions, Tyler.

Funny, I've been looking into Bali and Ubud and the yoga classes at the Yoga Barn too. I will be traveling there sometime mid/late Feb. for about a week before exploring more of the island for a month. I'm eager to check it out, especially the Kundalini Yoga classes offered elsewhere in Ubud. (may not be as popular and busy as I. yoga but it soothes my soul)
I'll be looking for good, cheap places to stay while there. Any more favorites anyone cares to mention? Would like to book a place for my first few nights while I get on my feet then look around. Thanks for sharing everyone!
