Where to stay in Kalibaru

Kalibaru

Kalibaru offers some excellent midrange accommodation in a couple of larger hotels and a handful of intimate guesthouses mostly clustered along a potholed side road three kilometres east of the railway station. If you don’t want to walk far from the train, head strait to Margo Utomo Agro Resort. Flashpackers should take the opportunity for a splurge here but for backpackers we’re sorry, the pickings are slim. Be prepared for basic or move on to Jember.

Got milk? Yep that’s a whiff of dairy cows as you walk into Margo Utomo Agro Resort—the name refers to the “agro-culture” of the neighbouring plantation and dairy farm, no need to brace yourself for any signs of aggression. This delightful 49-room family-run rural hotel sits amid a fragrant tropical garden almost directly behind Kalibaru Railway Station although inconveniently you...

Rumah Susan occupies a beautiful, but very run-down colonial house with a lovely garden immediately next door to Margo Utomo Agro Resort opposite Kalibaru Railway Station. The guesthouse offers two very basic and a bit grotty guest rooms behind the main house, but the historic architecture, location and price make it easy to ignore its faults. The simple Goldilocks-style room we viewed was... Read our full review of Rumah Susan.
