This welcoming family homestay offers a range of budget options from an eight-bed dorm to private rooms, in a quiet street 300 metres from Ubud main road. The budget rooms are older, but newly spruced up and dorms and other private rooms were recently built when we dropped by in 2016.

Set back in the family compound, the air-con dorm is one of the best value dorms we’ve seen in Ubud. It’s not a cramped sleeping area, but a whole house with separate fully equipped kitchen (with drinking water refills), dining room and large furnished terrace for lounging. It has a large bathroom, complete with tub—one of the biggest bathrooms we’ve seen in a hostel.

Large, airy and (perhaps too) light-filled, the tiled sleeping room of the dorm provides four sturdy metal double bunks with thinnish, but comfortable mattresses. Colourful bedsheets (both top and bottom) brighten the otherwise bland beige room. Bunks don’t provide individual lighting, so bring a torch for reading in bed, however there are a few power outlets for charging your gadgets. Curtains are thin, covering large picture widows which look out to the pretty garden—pack an eye-mask if you want a sleep in. Lockable lockers, along with a separate wardrobe, offer storage. The clean, spacious tiled ensuite bathroom only offers one toilet and hot-water shower/tub, together in one room, which may be an issue if all eight need the facilities at the same time, particularly if guests decide to take advantage of the swimming-pool-sized bathtub. A second dorm was under construction when we visited.

Older-style budget rooms are housed in a single-storey brick longhouse. Interiors are smallish, but adequate with comfortable beds and clean brightly coloured linen. Scrubbed ensuite hot-water bathrooms are a little stained, but mould free. A terrific terrace is furnished with a couple of comfy beanbags, a small table and a clothes-drying rack. Bamboo screens between rooms offer some privacy. The newer private rooms are arranged in a double-storey brick block with furnished balconies — go for an upstairs room for a bit of a view over the tree tops. Simply and spartan, the spacious rooms are clean, bright and airy, appointed with comfy beds and roomy tiled ensuites.

Breakfast is included across all room options, served in the cute and colourful beach-shack-themed upstairs roadside restaurant overlooking the street. WiFi is free, and bikes and motorbikes can be hired at reasonable prices. A laundry below the restaurant will wash your cloths for 15,000 rupiah per kilo.

I Gusti Nyoman Oka Homestay enjoys a fun and friendly atmosphere — we like the quieter location too, and if you visit on a Wednesday or Saturday, a kecak dance is performed in the temple just 150 metres away. If you’re budget conscious, slightly cheaper, but not quite as good dorm beds can be found nearby at Taman Dewangga Hostel, also on Jalan Sriwedari. Duana Homestay offers neat good value private rooms, too.
