Stayed here for 5 days and it was amazing. The place is very cozy. Rooms were simple yet functional. The place gives off a homey ambiance and the people who works there seems to love the place. Will recommend this place to my friends when they visit Lombok!

Had a great time at Baleku, stayed here around two weeks with trips to the Gilli islands that were organised by the staff. Made everything easy, helpful, friendly, good for a good time too. Food is very good too and the prices are great. Shisha, food, booze, pool, good music, good atmosphere :)

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were basic, but clean. We opted for a fan bedroom with bathroom, and made good use out of the pool. The family who run this homestay are very friendly and helpful, offering free drop off and pick up in to the town centre!

We organized a day trip to the gilis through the front desk. We arrived by 9am (our reservation time) and were told the driver had gone to buy gas. After waiting 30minutes, he arrived, and on the way to the harbor we noticed the car had exactly one bar on the gas meter, so it's not clear what gas he'd...

We had one night to transit in Senggigi so opted for the cheapest place with a pool - Baleku. We arrived after dark and the place looked pretty average but the staff were reasonably welcoming and let us have our pick of the cheapest rooms. Each had concrete floor and fan with outside bathroom. The rooms had seen better days...

Best value for money. The people who run the place are great, and there is a good variety of staff. Rooms vary, if you are looking for a good room ask for upstairs.
