Accommodation during your study program in Bali
If you have never been to Indonesia or Bali before, knowing your accommodation options before departure is a key for a smooth travel preparation. Here you will find the most common places of our former students and some advice on how to find the right accommodation for your budget and standard.
Live in a villa or a private house
Most of our students decide to rent out a whole villa during their semester program in Bali. Especially if you travel in a group, this is the most comfortable and affordable way to stay in Bali for a longer term. However, if you want to experience the local way, a villa should not be your first option, as it might get hard to get out of your group and get in touch with locals.
Renting out a villa in Bali secures you a very high living and privacy standard. Almost every villa comes with a pool and a kitchen, so you can always spend some time after university with your friends in your new home. If you fear a cultural shock, this option is definitely the right choice for you.
- 250-400 USD per room/month
- 2-5 bedrooms per villa
- private bathrooms
- Private pool
- Community kitchen
If you don't fancy living in a villa, but don't want to share your room with others either, you may have a look at local "homestays". A homestay is the most common option to get a fair-priced private apartment in Indonesia. It refers to an apartment complex, which sometimes belongs to a family house. The prices vary depending on the facilities, however, most rooms come with a private bathroom and air condition. A homestay offers a good balance of privacy and experiencing local life in Bali.
If you decide to live in a homestay in Bali, you may get the chance to get to know the Balinese culture and find local friends. However, you should be confident living abroad and shouldn't be shy to face language barriers.
- 150-320 USD per room/month
- single or double bedroom
- private bathrooms
- Some come with air condition/fan
