+ friendly people + big, clean rooms + clean bathroom + tasty breakfast with lots of options (also vegetarian / vegan) + good WI-FI - far away from sightseeing places - during my stay there was a construction site in front of the hostel, so it was a bit difficult to go there

The Hostel is clean but a little bit impersonal. We had a double bad room which was very big with a cosy bad and a clean bath. The breakfast was also ok and the wifi worked perfectly. Its ok for a one or two night stay. Also the staf was friendly.

I had an amazing stay at Ikiru. The hotel is very clean and beautifully arranged: the rooms are spatious and well-decorated, the bed is very comfy with a fluffy bed cover and big pillows. The bathroom was perfect, with hot water & a good pressure. The included breakfast was delicious - We took the "indonesian" option with noodles the first... More

It's a charming, lovely little place. The place is so absolutely clean, and the two staff there are very sweet and kind and charming even though they don't speak a word of English. The owner does speak English and is there from time to time, but usually isn't. She's nice too. This place has a hot shower! It was marvelous.... More
