Good location but very shabby
Friendly people....but they could improve on their service like- clean white towles, clean cutlery for breakfast, at least some soap and extra toilet roll and most importantly drinking water in room.
Good for solo traveling
The home stay is very good and lovely. Nice location. Hosts are friendly and you can book Trekking tour with them with reasonable price. There is no drinking water and bathroom amenities provided.
Go the extra mile to serve guests
Jangkrik is perfectly located in the heart of the new Ubud. Ubud's centre, has indeed seemed to change, and this home-stay is in the perfect position to both access services, and yet still provide Balinese peace for which a true Bali holiday demands. The room and home-stay was clean, well-resourced and service from the family was impeccable. They respected privacy and yet were attentive, even though I was not a long-term guest. The room verandah offered delightful views of the home-stay and family as they went about daily life. Truly Balinese in service, interest and design flair.
I was particularly impressed well attention to service and speed of that service. My request was not impossible, but would have been easy to ignore: quick booking on a shuttle bus to Lovina. The manager booked for me and did the legwork with no commission. It appeared that if not an important village personality, he had his finger on the pulse of services and village life.
Breakfast was served quickly and was a delicious welcome to Bali- fruit and a banana jaffle.
Favourite place we've stayed at in Bali!
Tucked away just off one of the main roads it is a typical a Balinese house, absolutely stunning! The dogs are a bit scary at first but once they get to know you they're just the cutest. The house is in an excellent location. Very friendly people and a delicious breakfast was made for us even though we got up quite late at 11:30. We got a 'special deal' for a fast boat to Gili T from them which was 600,000 IDR return trip each. The company which took us to Gili T was pretty good (everything always seems a bit sketchy at first but turns out fine in the end). We didn't get breakfast on the morning we left but we didn't ask for it so that could've been why.
Nice homestay close to Yoga Barn
We enjoyed our stay at Jangkrik. The homestay is tucked in, protected from the craziness of the Ubud streets. It's a very pretty property with nice rooms and a great view from the balcony. The host family is very sweet and made delicious breakfasts each morning. It's just a 5 minute walk to Yoga Barn and a 15 minute walk to most of the top restaurant/bar options, with many options close-by and on the way, too.
