We booked it over thw phone just before arriving. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The room was small, had working A/C and a spacious bathroom. All that you needed was there. The sheets were all torn, so that would be a minus for me and the matrices very soft with springs. Over all a good night stay on the island with almost no hotels (not a surfer :))

This is a great place to stay at Sorake beach- It overlooks the keyhole, from where you paddle out to one of the best right-handers of the world. The accommodation has western style flushing toilets and a generator to support you with power even when the power-grid breaks down. This happens on a daily basis! Every room has two fans to help cooling you down in the tropical heat. You could either only take a room and eat in the many restaurants nearby ( this option I would recommend) or you could book a package with all food provided. Timmy the owner is well connected and can organize drivers for airport/harbor transfers or to get to other surf spots and sightseeing trips. He also can help you with flight tickets or with booking boat-trips. The place itself is a little come down and could use a bit of work. However it is in way better shape than most other accommodations in the area. There is a hammock on the balcony overlooking the waves. Only guests are allowed in the upper areas and so you can relax without being constantly asked to buy coconuts, carvings or other stuff. This is already the third time I stayed in this place and if I ever go to Nias in the future, I will stay there again.
