Family home with cheap single beds
The family home setting is pleasant and comfortable and we can imagine evenings spent chatting about surf trips and journeys further afield in Sumatra.
There’s a lot to like and a lot to dislike about Brigitte House.
But this homely feel also comes with downsides such as oddly shaped rooms, rooms without windows and many rooms without hot water. In fact, if you must have hot water, you’ll be shunted to a separate building 150 metres away and if you’re there alone, it could be quite creepy.
Still, Brigitte’s is the place to go for motorbike rentals and all things related to onward travel. Just don’t expect great value for money. In fact, if you’re considering one of the 300,000 rupiah rooms, you might be better off spending 450,000 rupiah at d’Oxville.
