Two nights in Istanaku guesthouse: large and clean room (superior) with aircon, hot shower and tv, staff very friendly, restaurant acceptable, good location in the center of town, not very far from the airport.

A really nice place to arrive after 13hours by boat and 12hours by car...fresh, clean towels, good airco, fast wifi. Everything was really clean and the staff was really friendly. Don't do your laundry here! Super expensive...and the breakfast is not that special either. Beside that, we were absolutely happy to stay here!

Stayed a night before/after Bunaken. Cheap, clean basic room. Hot water shower! Super nice and helpful staff gave us good suggestions fo restaurants and cafes nearby. Breakfast was ok, coffee was terrible. Easy to get into town, you can even walk if traffic is bad or you want to get off the crazy blue bemos that pump up the volume...

After several weeks of staying in basic backpackers lodges on Sulawesi, this great guesthouse was a welcoming upgrade. Everything was clean, quiet (rooms are not facing street side) and staff was helpful. The small rooms are comfortably equipped with AC, hot shower and satellite TV. Istanaku 2 in front looked even better but prices are higher. Location is good. 15min...

I stayed there for transit from airport to Bunaken island, consider it's clean with reasonable price. The only thing that bother me is if you stay at the top floor there's no lift and anything and you have to walk all the way up there with your languages and equipment plus if you want to find foods will be hard...

The staff were incredibly friendly and really made our stay special. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs and showed us around the city - including walking us to a local laundry service so that we could pay the lowest price!! Edwin especially made our stay fantastic. He is incredibly generous with his time and really went...

Just stayed for one night after landing late and waiting for transfer out. Very friendly helpful staff, rooms are clean. Quite a lot of steps to climb if on top floor, but staff kindly carry your bags. Very good value for money. Typical guesthouse, comfortable beds and a tv, wet room bathroom. Booked through booking.com in advance and paid 325,000...
