Private Villa

Comfortable & Relaxed Living

Many students opt to rent an entire villa for their stay in Bali, especially when traveling in groups. While this is a popular and luxurious choice, it may not provide the most authentic local experience, as you're likely to share the villa with fellow mates and miss out on the opportunity for a traditional local living.


250-400 USD / room / month.
The price depends on where you villa is located and how many people you share it with.

Each villa features 2 to 5 bedrooms, allowing every student to enjoy the privacy of their own room within the shared accommodation.

Private Bathrooms
In your rented villa you will have access to multiple private bathrooms.

WiFi mostly available
In addition to your own SIM card, that you receive from upskill, most Villas in Bali provide good WiFi.

Air-Conditioning
Escape the mid-day Bali heat with Air-Conditioning in your bedroom.

Swimming Pool
Most student villas are equipped with a private​ swimming pool. 

Equipped Kitchen
Inspired by Balinese cuisine? A kitchen will allow you to prepare and cook anything you desire. Or anytime you miss home cooked you will have the facility to prepare your own food.


Who do we recommend a private villa to?

Renting a villa in Bali not only offers a high living standard but also provides an excellent opportunity to spend quality time with your friends outside of university. Additionally, if you are concerned about potential cultural shock or getting homesick, this option would be the best choice for you.

Homestay

Cozy living with peers

In Bali, there are numerous establishments known as 'homestays' that strike a good balance between a local living experience and comfort. Despite common misconceptions, a homestay is not synonymous with a guest family. It typically refers to a small and cozy apartment complex, situated either within a family housing compound or in a separate private setting. These homestays usually feature three or more rooms arranged next to each other, offering residents a harmonious blend of privacy and social interaction with neighbors.


150-320 USD / room / month.
Homestays are often more affordable than private villas and are great for budget travelers.

Single bed or Double bed bedrooms
Choose a space-efficient single room, or more comfort in a big double bed.

Private Bathrooms
In your homestay, each room comes with a private bathroom.

Usually equipped with WiFi
In addition to your own SIM card, that you receive from upskill, most homestays will have good WiFi.

Air-Conditioning or Fan available
Escape the mid-day Bali heat with Air-Conditioning or a fan in your bedroom.

Shared Pool
A few homestays will also have a shared pool. Feel free to request this feature with us.

Small Fridge
To keep your drinks and a few snacks cool, most rooms will come with a small fridge


Who do we recommend a homestay to?

Opting for a homestay in Bali within a family living complex offers a unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself in Balinese culture and forge connections with both local and international friends. However, it's essential to be comfortable with meeting people from various countries and to embrace independence while living in Bali.

The local way of life

When Indonesians from other islands work in Bali, they typically choose to stay in accommodations known as 'kos kosans.' These are single rooms that are either sparsely equipped or not equipped at all. It is common for locals to purchase their own beds or mattresses, along with other necessary small furniture items.


40-110 USD / room / month.
Kos Kosans are suited for students on a budget.

Mattress
Rooms are usually equipped with a simple bed and furniture.

Shared Bathrooms
