The backpacker crashpad
If you’re looking for a backpacker crashpad with a traveller vibe, look no further than The Spot Bungalows.
This is a friendly place offering a gaggle of bamboo and rattan cold-water bungalows around a small lawn area with an attached cafe and bar. Imagine the kind of thatch hut you’d pick up on a beach in Thailand, drop it in here and that’s what you’ll get. Expect bouncy floors and, well, a very basic bathroom, but there’s a hammock strung out front and the staff are eager to please. The Spot attracts a young backpacker crowd, making this a good option for solo travellers looking to meet up with others. If full, the G’day Inn just up the road offers significantly more solid concrete rooms at 175,000 rupiah for a fan room and 250,000 for air-con.
