This simple no-frills option on a quiet lane was the friendliest we visited in the area. For 80,000 rupiah you get a clean, private pod in a dorm with an attached bathroom. The sturdy bunk-style pods are built as one horseshoe shaped unit. Beds have heavy dark brown curtains — great for a little privacy and darkness for sleeping, but may hinder the air-con on a hot night. The tiled room was cool when we stopped by. Pods come equipped with a small shelf, reading lamp and that all-important power socket for charging your electronics. Mattresses are thick, with only a bottom sheet and pillow supplied. Ladders to the top bunks are built into the metal framed unit and seem pretty solid. Lack of safety railings on the top bunks may be of concern to restless sleepers. Lockers under the bunks provide ample room for bags. A separate freestanding locker has room for extra storage. As there’s plenty of space, guests mostly just store their bags around the room. The attached older-style bathroom is clean, mould-free and functional. This converted family bathroom isn’t going to win any design awards and has no pretensions otherwise — it’s basic, but has a hot-water shower, sink and Western-style toilet. A separate toilet is outside. Towels and toilet paper are supplied. Outside the dorm a small communal area has a couple of wooden benches and a table. The friendly owners live in the room next door. Free WiFi is available throughout the walled family compound.

For a livelier hostel experience with a more backpacker vibe, The Happy Mango Tree around the corner has dorm beds for the same price and double fan-cooled rooms too while in a nearby lane, its slightly more upmarket sister property, In Da Lodge has a pool, bar and party atmosphere. For our money though, we liked the local family atmosphere at Jero di Bisma. If you’re travelling with a friend, for a slightly bigger spend nearby Puji Bungalow has twin fan-cooled rooms for 250,000 rupiah.
