Fantastic place to stay. Staff were great and the view over the rice fields was quite nice.

We had a lovely stay at Bening Bungalow, the owners were really nice friendly people and the banana pancakes we had for our first breakfast were delicious! The room was very quiet and looked out onto a rice paddy. There was confusion with the price that we had booked the room for via hostel world, apparently there is a set rate for the room - this was not the case when booking. We were asked to pay the full price and not what hostel world had quoted us, we weren't the only ones with this problem

I was very disappointed with the owner here. He insisted that the price from we paid was wrong and that we owed him double what you had charged us. He then became very confrontational and wouldn't let us leave until we paid additional money. I wouldn't advise any traveller using this hostel for that reason.

Nice view from the balcony. Great breakfast there! A bit out of town but kind of close to monkey forest and restaurants. Still walking distance to everything. The small windows doesn't have glass, so some insects come in. Simple room does the job!


best place ever. nice stuff. beautyfull view for the room!!


guys running the place are friendly and helpful even though there's not much sign to tell you where's the office. enjoyed the simple breakfast and i will definitely go back there again!


Stayed here for four nights, nice location (not in the centrum of Ubud but didn't take that long to walk) and clean rooms. Awesome view outside the bungalow, rice field just outside the door.


It was just the perfect place, great value for money. Having a Fan was more than enough, breakfast at the bungalow, close to the city center and beautiful family owners. I will go again!


Good location, walking distance to everything. Room cleanliness was so-so, quite a few ants. Room was average overall but looked out onto a super close ride paddy and so can see workers til sunset on your patio. Breakfast was good and included. If only staying in ubud couple of nights, it'll do.


Excellent value for money and the staff were very friendly despite the language barrier. Waking up to breakfast on your own private porch looking over rice fields made this place great. This only down side was that we booked for a twin room and got a double instead, but it wasn't really a big issue for us.


Very friendly, helpful. The place was great and very close to the center of ubud. I am planning on staying there again next year
