Lovely staff, very kind, great vibe accomodation, excellent location, we have stayed more than once. Peaceful
Amazing unique home stay”
What an amazing time we had at Nicks. Don't be put off by the map view, nicks homestay is right there, from the moment you walk onto the street, you are in Ubud. Markets, massages etc The walk to the monkey forest takes 5minutes, 45minutes if you are distracted with the many stores you will pass on the way. Staff are wonderful, nice and friendly. Lots of animals for young children to look at. Gardens are beautifully maintained. Would highly recommend to everyone!! We have just finished our holiday, and spent the last three nights at paradise plaza, yet, would prefer to still be at nicks homeatay over the 5star resort.
Yes, it's Cheap. But At Least the Towels Should NOT Smell Bad”
Location-wise, Nick's Homestay is just a five-minute walk from Plataran Resort, one of the stops of Kura-Kura Bus' Ubud Line. It's also near the Monkey Forest. I booked a Standard Fan room, and I was assigned Room #4, which I believe is the farthest. The room is big enough for two, but expect screened windows. That means that the noise (e.g., sound of the birds and the conversation of guests in the other room, chanting from the other compound) can be unbearable. I like the low pricing, really, but I don't think I have to put up with stinky towels and bed sheets just because I didn't pay more.
Quiet place in city center ”
We spent 3 nights and we enjoyed our stay very much. The staff is very kind and helpful! Location is good and close to everything. The rooms are in a quiet and lovely garden far away from the city traffic noises. The walls between rooms are pretty thin so if your neighbor is noisy you will hear though. Apart from that it is a very recommendable place and good value.
Great lovely little find”
you follow an alley far into a lovely courtyard full of of birds and a beautiful peaceful garden. Breakfast served to your room everyday. Clean and friendly right in the heart of Ubud. Very nice
Continuing to please”
Excellent. We were there for three months last year; we were happy to return, albeit for only two weeks this year, and again were not disappointed. Although we could well do without it, air-con arrived while we were there. Staff was again excellent, cheerful, and couldn't do enough for us. Care of the property is meticulous. Breakfast, provided, is ample: jaffle with egg or banana, and generous bowl of fruit, with tea (or Bali coffee if you request it) is brought to the verandah every morning. Family atmosphere. If you expect 5-star you might be disappointed, but perfect for us.
A pleasant surprise”
I only got to stay one night due to a booking mix up but I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful this place was. Wish I had stayed there longer.
Sweet people / Beautiful homestay”
Great place to stay when travel in low budget”
It's great but need more upgrade of water system and WiFi.
Good stay good price ”
Great. Location is fairly good only a 5-10 minute walk to main strip and Monkey Forest. Had good double bed and good fan (cooler at night so AC not really needed anyway) showers warm up after about a minute and temple gardens are lovely! Worth the price plus good brekkie included :)
The stay was average only due to the fact that I had to not only ask for more loo paper but that I was asked to come and get it myself from the reception desk. I found this al little strange as the room was turned out each day. Also, it took 3 days for our laundry to be returned and that was after repeatedly asking every day if it was ready. Having said that the staff were apologetic and friendly which was lovely. It was not an unpleasant stay but I think I would stay somewhere else next time.
Very nice homestay!”
I'd nick into Nick's any time!”
We'd been happy with other accommodation on previous visits, but in five years since our last visit the price had soared. A combination of Nick's price, and good reviews on this and other sites, led us to try Nick's, which was a bit ask seeing we were staying for 3 months! It worked ideally. Price was good. We had a spacious room, with heavy bamboo furniture, comfortable bed, usually hot showers. Cleanliness was meticulous inside and in the grounds of the compound.Noisy roosters and other birds nearby, but we soon got used to that. Noisy early evening dance performances, but usually over by 8.30. Worst part was thoughtless loud talking by some fellow guests, but that could happen anywhere. Staff were very helpful and friendly, always ready with transport and performance bookings if wanted. Sited close to restaurants, shops; walking distance from famed Monkey Forest and central market. Simple breakfast included, served to our own veranda, tasty and filling. No hesitation in going there again!
Comfortable and convenient in Ubud”
We were happy to stay at Nick's for three months! Lovely, friendly, helpful staff. Pleasant amnbience. Nourishing and filling breakfast, served when the guest wants it. Spacious room. Awkward points: pebbles on shower floor (but there is another shower over the bath if the guest prefers); inconsistency of hot water for our particular room. Very conveniently located in Ubud. We were attracted by the price, but happy with the standard.
Good location but loud ”
The location was good, the rooms were fan only. The bathrooms smelled like they could do with a good bleaching, constantly smelling stale and damp. There are extremely loud roosters (caged) which wake up at 4:30 and don't stop. The woof on my room didn't work (I think it worked in the further back rooms so if you're staying here request one of those)
Living in between a Balinesen Family”
A Little Bit noisy. Many birds and chicken which wake You up in the very early morning.you Must like it.
The hotel itself very caltural look”
Great staying in this cultural look hotel with a beautiful garden. Good location, can reach most of the souvenir shop in walking distance.
Staying here is like sleeping in a zoo”
Staying at nick's was a disappointment after reading all the positive reviews online. At times i was wondering if they were even talking about the same place as i was staying at. My room was infested with ants, covering most of the bedroom and bathroom, and the amount of them kept imcreasing as my stay progressed. The room by itself is clean with clean sheets, and the bathrooms are ok if you look look away from the ant problem. The garden area and the build up of the outside of nicks is really pretty, however they have roosters, chickens, birds in cages, 4 dogs, cats etc, and they all run around freely during the day as well as during the night. They make so much noice it's impossible to sleep and the same goes for the fan in the room which i just had to turn of. I would not stay here again as there are plenty of places that charge the same for better quality.
