Long-running Sonya Homestay is located towards the northern part of central Senggigi, not long before the Art Market, down a narrow little gang.
When we visited the place was deserted -- not a soul to be seen, but all the rooms were open and made up for guests so we were able to stick our head in. This is typical backpacker homestay fare for Indonesia and, given the location, seemed like a good backpacker deal. There’s a small shady communal area and you’re very close to plenty of eateries and bars. Maybe it was just the rainstorm that preceded our visit, but the place was very damp -- pack repellant. There are a couple more homestays nearby; to find them cross the road, turn right and walk maybe 50 metres and you’ll see a lane running off to your left. They are signposted. There’s also The Ozzie, near the Podt Office, with 100,000 rupiah dorms which may be worth a look.
