There's only 2 homestay near Ijen Crater. This homestay is located in the middle of coffee plantation. Established since 1894, and still standing strong until now. For me, the facility is just so-so. The room wall's made of woven booth. In my room, provided 2 lamp, but only one lamp is still on. It's really cold here because this location...

We stayed here for the 1 AM trek to Ijen lake to catch the blue fire. Very basic hotel to rest for a few hours before heading out. Seems to be the only half decent hotel in the area located amongst beautiful houses of coffee plantation workers. It has a good area to walk about. Dinner is fixed limited buffet...

By the time I reached Ijen, I was on my last leg of trip so I was extremely tired. I just got here after a 7 hour drive from Bromo, so I was pretty much zoned out. I got room no.14 which was just in front of the dining hall, so it was very noisy. Lucky I brought earplugs otherwise...

The only good things about the hotel are the location and for me the staff. Though I saw they weren't as nice to other people. (Who probably even paid more) it was part of the organized unorganized tour from Yogyakarta to bromo and ijen. Rooms are old, not clean and mattresses are very thin. Standard no towels or toilet paper...

The place was beautiful but the room was very dirty and also the bathroom was not in good condition. Me and my husband was in surprise to find this type of room on our 1st night.But we must be very tired, both of us slept like babies. Only to wake up at 1.30am to get ready for Ijen. From this...

We came to Catimor homestay on a Saturday evening in December 2014 and got two rooms (for 2 and 3 people) for one night. During the night, we went on a hike on Kawah Ijen and came back quite early in the morning to sleep for a few hours. So far, everything was great: the place is really pretty, we...

We arrived to this hotel with an organised package. After reading plenty of negative comments, I can say: 'they are all true' Room was dirty, bathroom floor broken. No toilet paper nor towels, blankets in the room.. Only on request at the reception. If you can avoid this hotel, do it....

This accomodation was part of a trip to Ijen. The overall price was not that high, neither was the quality of this accomodation. But reasonable enough to stay one night. The rooms are very basic and a bit noisy. Especially the rooms near the reception. Also we had to ask for sheets and towels, otherwise we wouldn't got them. Outside...

Though the accomodations are very outdated and could use a serious overhaul, you cannot deny the beautiful surroundings. Walking down the main road where the workers of the coffee plantation live at the evening call to prayer was something out of a fairytale. There are beautiful hot springs and a waterfall a short 10 minute walk from the homestay as...

I read all the reviews of Catimore Homestay on Trip Advisor and was really scared of this place and prepared for the worst (bugs, mices, coakroaches, overpriced transport to Ijen, rude staff etc). Still, I did not have a big choice and with a couple of friends we decided to stay in Catimore (thinking of sleepless night). We showed up...
