Mini Tiga Homestay

Good vibes, decent rooms

More on Pangandaran

Mini Tiga Homestay is a bit of an institution in backpacker circles—it offers warm and welcoming good vibes and a terrific social atmosphere.

Travelfish says:

Along with a selection of well presented good value air-con and fan-cooled rooms, the excellent communal areas range from relaxing spots to chill and read a book, to more lively settings to get to know your fellow travellers, share stories and a Bintang or three—old school, without feeling dated.

A leafy courtyard garden fronts the double-storey building in a narrow laneway within Pangandaran’s backpacker quarter, less than 200 metres from the sea. Mini Tiga’s homely and inviting feel is enhanced with eclectic quirky decor touches.

The rooms are spick and span and good sized, all with private ensuite bathrooms, although cold showers only. Some rooms are a tad dark and others bright and airy, so check out a couple before choosing. Wood and bamboo furnishings and local artwork add authentic Indonesian touches. Beds sport foam mattresses, clean white bottom sheet and a light blanket—you may wish to pack a sleep sheet. Bedside lighting is within reach and power sockets are ample for charging gadgets.

Breakfast is included and homemade yoghurt is (sometimes) available. Other simple snacks can be served in the mini-restaurant/bar, a congenial space that is popular with locals and tourists alike, famous for their “very cold fridge”. Mini Tiga Homestay can organise local tours and surf lessons too.

We think Mini Tiga Homestay is a fab little spot, and its reputation is well deserved, which may mean rooms may be hard to come by in high season, but if they are full there are several other options in the nearby lanes and you can always just drop by to soak up the atmosphere. For a quieter sleep, we like Villa Angela next door, and for a bit more of a spend, you can’t beat Adam’s Homestay.
