The Shafa House is located in a quiet neighborhood near the city centre. In front of the house is a basketball. In the evening young people play a game. The house is build in a modern - cubistic - style. The entrance hall is very spacious. We stayed in a nice room on the first floor at the frontside of the house. Downstairs there is a nice, open living room and a kitchen. The room is large and clean. The bathroom has got a nice warm shower and the beds are very good. This is a very nice place to stay. Good to know it is not a hotel, but a place where students and young workers stay for often longer periods. The caretaker is a kind man and guards the front door, which is allways locked. To our surprise the lady made us an lovely Indonesian breakfast every morning. Although it is a quiet place there is one thing to be aware of: the neighboring mosque is quite active and preaches long time from 5 am. Earplugs can be useful.
We had a very nice stay at the Shafa House and were taken well care of.
