Bagus Bay Homestay was once a hit place in Tuk-Tuk, but these days it’s just a dim shadow of its former self.

It’s not that the rooms here are bad value for money. They’re not. It’s just that the place needs a bit of a spruce up, a lick of paint and the removal of dust and cobwebs. That said, rooms come in a massive variety with the ones having shared hot water, squat toilet bathrooms being most popular because of their price. When a discount is thrown in, the traditional Batak houses aren’t bad either with their attached hot water bathrooms, but also with squat toilets. Come to this place for the cheap rooms as you’ll find the price difficult to beat. WiFi is available in the attached restaurant and some rooms.
