The Best Places to Stay in Indonesia

The prices of accommodations in Indonesia are very affordable. Apart from Thailand, it is probably one of the countries in Asia where you can get an entire villa (with a pool) for around $50 a night. The value for accommodation is pretty ridiculous! Since Indonesia is predominantly a Muslim country, mixed dorms are very uncommon here. Most of the accommodations are composed of guest houses and home stays.

In the lesser known areas in Java and Sumatra, expect to pay around $8-10 a night for a private room in a local guesthouse, good for two people. Air-Conditioned rooms run from anything from $15-20 a night for a private room. Places like Bali are naturally a little bit cheaper but finding cheap places to stay is totally doable. Listed below are our personal recommendations on where to stay in Indonesia.
