Experience the real Aceh and stay with Nenek! Nenek enjoys meeting people from all over the world. Although she doesn't speak English, you will still be able to communicate. Nenek is a fantastic cook and we encourage you to try some local food. If you want this you just need to email your requests and any dietary requirements ahead of time. Possible dishes include a wide range of curries (normally fish or chicken), nasi goreng, yellow rice, sambal, gado-gado and various vegetarian dishes.
“Nenek is a super great hostess. Through she didn’t speak English, we still can communicate with each other well. My mom even taught her how to exercise neck and shoulder which was easy pain when people lack physical exercise or after housework. She had prepared a good breakfast and fruits for us. Her sons, Tomas and Ogi also great. Tomas in Australia but he had been providing travel information for us all the time. WiFi and hot both water isn’t necessary things for backpacks, the most important thing is the owner, clean and safe. Nenek and her sons have made it. Highly recommended!”
