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 floor, where older rooms with local style bathrooms don’t get much light and are dingy and musty, and head upstairs to the newer (and less expensive!) rooms.

Another coat of paint would be welcome.

There you’ll find spartan tiled and whitewashed interiors (although they could do with an extra coat of paint), a double bed with colourful sheets and cosy blankets along with a clean ensuite bathroom with Western toilet and hot shower. The one power outlet in the room is high on the wall (they must have run out of wire), a little awkward to use unless you have long cables for your chargers. Two narrow windows allow a little natural light through the flimsy curtains, but miss an opportunity for a great view, and you’ll have to walk out to the unfurnished shared balcony to enjoy the rural outlook.

Once the third floor is complete, it will possibly be blessed with even better views (and may be cheaper again!). On the ground floor, a cosy semi-outdoor communal area provides lounges and you can help yourself to coffee and tea, or just huddle around the brazier, very welcome for toasting your toes on a cold night. The friendly owner speaks a little English and is happy to offer local tips.

Back to basics fare.

If you prefer a more comfort and a better view, fork at a little more rupiah for a room at Hotel Larasati, though note that it is a sharia hotel (so you may be asked to provide a marriage certificate if you want to share a room). Alternatively, for the same spend, a dorm bed at Tani Jiwo is a more basic sleep but this stylish hostel offers a few extra facilities and includes breakfast.
