    Good location for a few night in Ubud”

    pros Good location fridge in room H.W. tropical garden setting with pool first place in Bali that actually offered hard boiled eggs family helpful enough...if you need a taxi etc.... A few reviews mention noise but I didn't think the noise particularly intrusive … mostly birds ...it was set back away from the road. Gorgeous Pug cons A little more attention to detail wouldn't go amiss i.e. no toilet paper on arrival, soap dispenser with out soap shower dispenser without shampoo/gel no soap provided; couldn't get the safe to work;pool could have been cleaner

    Excellent”

    Everything was fantastic. Balinese or Western breakfast is one of the best if not the best tasting and filling of all places we have visited in Asia. The rooms are beautiful and clean. We stayed 2 nights in a Delux Double Room then extended our stay for 2 nights in a standard room. Only difference was the size. Both room and bathroom were a bit smaller but both rooms were great. Pool was lovely and staff were friendly. Main Street of Ubud was only 100mtrs down the street. We also loved Ubud and will definitely be returning.

    A home, not just a place to stay”

    I recommend Jiwa Guesthouse because of the extraordinary hospitality and kindness that the Jiwa family gives. This place is an oasis of tranquility. Yes, there are roosters crowing as some other reviews have mentioned, but it was soothing to me. The room was clean and comfortable with an old world style lost in modern places. The location is perfect, on a side street not far from a main road with plenty of restaurants (warungs) nearby, including a great place right across the road. The Jiwa family made me feel like I was part of their home and welcomed me to participate in Hindu ceremonies, which was an invaluable spiritual experience. Finally, it’s an incredible value for what you pay.

    Excellent value for money”

    I stayed there for 4 nights and really enjoyed my stay there. I was upgraded to a deluxe double room which had its own wonderful entrance through a beautiful small front garden. The room and bathroom were spacious but could have been a bit cleaner. The breakfast was very good with a good choice of dishes. The staff were friendly although forgetful at times ( they forgot to bring me my dinner and breakfast once which I had ordered the day before). There is a small pool but I did not use it. It can be a bit noisy so bring eat plugs if you’re sensitive like me. The location is perfect for exploring Ubud. I recommend this guest house and would go back there for sure.

    Great place to rest after a day taking in the sights and sounds of Ubud. Very peaceful, nice pool, and excellent service from the family that runs it. The place is very centrally located within walking distance to well known clubs and markets. Rooms are a good size and the breakfast very good. And I really loved Bruno (the guard dog) and the cheeky bird that greets people.

    Best room we have stayed in on our whole Asia trip. Rooms are huge. Breakfast included with huge selection and brought to your room to have on your balcony. Staff very friendly. Right in the centre of Ubud. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops. Hired scooter from hotel to get to rice fields and waterfall 50k per day. Only con was there as so many roosters crowing all day and night. It was very annoying but we had earplugs which helped at night.

    Nice Little Guesthouse”

    This guesthouse was clean and location close to restaurants and shopping, but far enough away to be very quiet in the residence. My only con is that I booked a poolside room for 3 nights, but on the 2nd and 3rd night they had moved me into a different bungalow away from the pool and I still paid the same price as the first night. Staff was really friendly and helpful. I loved the breakfast delivered to my room each morning. and it was a great selection with a main dish, fruit, juice and choice of coffee or tea.

    Pleasant stay in Jiwa's guest house. It has a lovely garden and a small Pool. Although the villa located in the city center, but you don't hear any traffic from the Ubud's main street. Instead of that what you have are peacefulness and kindness from the staffs. The room was clean, a/c worked well and it has a quick Internet connection, so that you can watch streaming movies. The breakfast was excellent as well. Just 50 m to the main street, you don't really need a bike. I will definitely come back again.
