Where to stay in Dieng Plateau

Dieng Plateau

You’ll have no trouble finding a place to sleep in Dieng, but best to lower your expectations. Dieng is chock-full with unexceptional and relatively pricey homestays, many that feel more like a cheap hotel than staying with a welcoming family, often with little to no English spoken. Sadly very few rooms take advantage of the terrific views. All the places we viewed offered warm bedding and hot showers, some with a set temperature only. Beware of rooms with potentially hazardous gas water heaters or gas bottles inside the sleeping area. Book ahead in the high season months of July and August and during festival times. In some more conservative digs, couples may be asked to prove their marital status, though this is less likely for Western couples.

Funky city-style hostel Tani Jiwo is one of a kind in Dieng and although in a city location it would be considered rather basic, here it’s the pick of the bunch. Located at the far end of the small town opposite the minibus terminal, you won’t miss the large grey and white double-storey building. On offer are a host of mixed dorm rooms with from four to 12 beds, doubles with private... Read our full review of Tani Jiwo.

Tucked in a small laneway off Jalan Telaga Warna, Homestay Flamboyan 2 is a clean, modest and friendly choice for the budget traveller who prefers private facilities. Related to the Homestay of the same name on Jalan Raya Dieng, this is the better option. Housed in a double-storey, soon to be triple-storey block (as of January 2018) are a handful of basic double rooms—forget the ground... Read our full review of Homestay Flamboyan 2.

Homestay Lidah Buaya

13 Jalan Raya Dieng, Dieng
T: (0852) 2755 8145

Aside from the garish 80s bordello-style decor, there’s not much to distinguish Homestay Lidah Buaya from many similar offerings in Dieng, but the score here is a good view from the keyhole-size window in a couple of the rooms (if you get in quick). The double-storey long narrow building sits back a little from the main road around 50 metres west of the BRI Bank. Shade your eyes from the... Read our full review of Homestay Lidah Buaya.

Old-school travellers hub, Losmen and Restoran Bu Djono has been welcoming guests since 1967 and was the first of its kind in Dieng (and pretty much still is). At the junction of Jalan Raya Dieng, and Jana Telaga Warna as you enter the town, the double-storey red and white building with wide front veranda looks not unlike a small outback Aussie pub or a tavern from a spaghetti western. The... Read our full review of Losmen and Restoran Bu Djono.
