We arrived at this home stay and have to say the standard of the rooms is very basic. We had not booked a room and there was some confusion with the hotel and we where put into a terrible room as the hotel was fully booked. The room was dark, the bathroom dirty. We where resigned to,staying here for one...

Room was so old, dirty and not enough ventilation. Out of a very limited choice we pick this one, because it's about 1 km to Bhawan waterfall, and only about 20 mins drive to Kawah Ijen. Going to Kawah Ijen we have to start trekking by 1:30-2 am since we want to catch Blue flame so with around 5 hours...

Travelling solo and stayed in Catimore homestay for a night. This place is not as bad as how the review have mentioned (probably for me). Room is small with a bathroom but it's clean and cosy for at least 1 or 2 nights stay. Additional plus point is that they are located near Kawah Ijen, like a half an hour...

The bathroom is dirty and simple. The condition of the beds in the triple room is really bad, with broken bed. As I book it through travel agency, I am not sure if it is worth of price. There is no restaurant nearby except the homestay restaurant. Regarding the dinner, there is only one choice (RP60,000). I think it is...

We were tricked into staying here by a transport company centered in Probolinggo, named "De Java Transport Tiket & Taxi Service". They organised a tour to Mt. Bromo and Kawah Ijen - luckily we sticked with our pre-booked hotel near Bromo. The location of Catimore Homestay is probably as close as you can get for Kawah Ijen; even though you...

I was told by the agent there's only 2 available chalet which is near to Kawah Ijen and Catimor is one of it. I was also been reminded by the agent for do not put high expectations considering this place was built in 1894 and located very remotely. However, I would expect to get at least a basic items like...

Whatever you do...."don't stay here"!!! Super excited I arrived in Homestay Catimor, looking forward to days of walking, exploring by motorbike and try the local food in the mountains away from the city. A little disappointed about the terrible state of the rooms/hotel, especially considering the price I paid but hey breakfast was included and i was close to waterfalls...

Avoid at all cost!!! This was the biggest mistake in all of Indonesia, we went here as thought it would be the perfect place to see ijen volcano. Boy was I wrong! I have never felt like a walking wallet so much, all the staff in the hotel are corrupt in trying to charge ridiculous prices for everything! The rooms...
