I booked from booking.com and pay (RP. 90.072) directly by Debit card but the owner sayed, they didn't receive any booking and they ask me to pay again cash (RP. 125.000) If I want to stay there. The Owner unfriendly to costumers, the room is very bad is not matching with prices that they are giving. I recommend do not go to this Oka Homestay !!!
This property has many birds caged up like prisoners and this made me feel very uncomfortable and this practice should not be supported. Some of the birds seen in the cages were Critically Endangered and should not be in captivity. The bathrooms were pretty awful, lovely plants in the garden.Breakfast was a couple of slices of toast/warm bread.
Must made a booking through phone call. But, great location if you want to have a chit-chat with your friends until a midnight. The owner is so nice, and the breakfast is provided. They also offer laundry service with a good price.
Went there to rent motorbike during our stay in Mataram (browsed them randomly on Google). I asked for matic but they do not have the it at the time, so i asked whether the lady owner know other place with matic, and she pointed out MPM. I went there by walk but when i arrived i found out that it was HONDA DEALERSHIP with the name MPM. So furious, because i asked her nicely, asked exactly 3 question (whether they rent matic, does it come with raincoat, and whether she can recommend another place) and she misdirected me. It was raining, so yeah, not a nice walk. It is not a nice act from the lady owner.
I tried to reserve a room by phone some days prior to arrival. The lady on the phone was not friendly but booked a room. When we arrived there at night nobody would open the door despite us shouting for attention, dogs barking and the taxi driver honking. Finally someone walked by the gate without even saying a word or taking notice.
.... go to oka homestay Being away from home and from my fur babies for a long time sometimes giving me a hard time... Oka homestay does not give you JUST an affordable accommodation.... it also gives you some new friends who love to be pet... Everything about the place will stuck in my memory because of the dogs
Really cheap, clean room but litle bit dark and fungi aroma, nice garden, lovely owner. We booked for 1 room with twin bed but suddenly when we arrive we got news our room taken by another guest (they make wrong date for our booking), but they give us another room with lower price and next day they take us to our booked room. Breakfast standart but that good thing for the cheap price, also we rent motorcycle here
I stayed in the family's quirky wooden house out the back which had everything I needed for my stay in Bali. The rooms were very clean and cozy. I stayed longer than intended as the staff and family were fine exemplars of Balinese hospitality. Great big beaming, shy asian smiles and happy to help with all my questions on Balinese culture and language. If you intend to stay longer Oka can give you a reasonable rate for the room. The free breakfast that comes with the room was a big incentive as well!
I stayed here 2 days ago, a room cost Rp 100.000 for twin bed and was a reasonable price for the condition. Even tough the room old enough ( they built it on 1991), it was clean. They have gazebo and shady tree in front of the terrace. Rent motorcycle for Rp 60.000 Airport transfer Rp 250.000/car (not per person) Near the mall, ATM, bank, drugstore and many more Make sure you book the room before come there. Because if you not book, maybe when you arrive there, the room is full. The owner CP: 081999480100
Decided to stay in Mataram at the last minute and was really pleased with Oka. The family that runs it is lovely, and the price is incredibly cheap for a private room. A large free breakfast never hurts. Bathrooms are the only call out- a shower that barely drips water down upon you and a no flush toilet are just worth calling out for travelers who need/expect more.
