We stayed there for only one night on organized tour to Ijen. First impression was good, however the second look was terrible. The room was dirty. There was something like a bedside table still cover by crumbs. I think it is not hard job to clean it up. The floor was dirty too, I seriously doubt they ever swept it.... More

The room was pretty clean but the mattresses were from ages (they're really thin and not comfortable). If you're going to Kawah Ijen, it doesn't really matter because your night will be short. There is a restaurant directly in the hotel, good food (no choice, only one menu with some different a sorts of food).

If Ijen is the proverbial Mt Doom then Catimor guesthouse is Barad-Dur. Sleeping in the room is like sleeping in a prison cell. The only reason to tolerate staying here for a few hours is getting to Mt Ijen early in the morning. Besides the fact that Mt Ijen is spectacular, the second best reason to pay extra for a... More

We stayed here for one night on our tour of Mount Bromo and Ijen. We were prepared for the accommodation to be awful, and found that it wasn't really that bad - certainly better than our Bromo hotel the night before! We are backpackers and don't mind simple accommodation as long as it is clean. We were given a room... More

We have been travelling a while and so are used to crappy accommodation. If you are just on holiday, yes, this place sucks in comparison to a normal hotel. We were put in a 4 bed room (there were 2 of us), which was pretty clean. We even had hot water. The set meal dinner is not too bad either!... More

Most horrendous place I have ever stayed in, cannot believe this is the only place one can stay in to see the Ijen Crater. The staff were unfriendly, the food was awful and the place itself was filthy.

Keep in mind that I had low expectations for this homestay, having decided to ride the local bus from Surabaya, followed by a mini bus and then on the back of a motorcycle. Nonetheless, I was looking for a relaxing, quiet place to rest my head and give myself time to explore the surrounding craters, lush coffee plantations, and waterfalls.... More
