Bunk bed and a happy communityhouse just in the outskirts of Ubud. First and only "hostel" in Ubud : Cheapest around :) Backpackers - we welcome you!

The Space

What we are up to here,
is creating a harmonious place for living in community spirit and freedom of creativity of all kinds. We now have managed to turn an 7 years empty family compound of an special artist and friend of ours into an instrument of free spirits. The goal is to manifest a place, that people can meet up, live together, stay for few nights, learn, teach, share, care and co-create.
We have a community kitchen, warm water in the showers, laundry, drinking water, batik and recycle art workshops even WIFI etc, but use of all of those comes from contributions of the people. We have 2 big rooms, 1 small and a dormitory space available in a huge arthouse standing on a plot of 1000m2 land next to a jungle. Dormitory space is a wide room with 10 bunkbeds.

  • The place is one dynamic place with a lot of interesting travelers who stayed there as well. Beutifully painted spacious local home with a beautiful garden and verandah in the backyard. Only that the place do need some cleaning and clearing of things.

  • My first two nights went well so I decided to stay.

    Kaleidescope is an amazing community space. If you are someone who likes to share and learn and get involved then you should come and stay here. If you are looking for a 5 star resort with your own bathroom then there are plenty of other places.

    Everyone here is very friendly and I have been invited to share some meals.

    I love the outdoor shower - there is no hot water but Bali is warm anyway...

    There is lots going on in the garden with the vision for the community to eventually become self sufficient.

    Also there is a big space for workshops. I'm planning to host some events here and the community have offered to support me in that.

    I decided to stay on and take the private room with its own tower for meditation / yoga & sungazing. I love it!!

  • Great place to crash. Ideal for backpackers searching for great experiences rather than super-comfy room

About
Rumah Idea (yayasan Idea Global) meets Kaleidoscope Ch Rumah IDEA stands for Indonesian Development of Environmental Education and Agricultural studies. It’s a place to share and develop ideas to inspire youth and villagers to bring all the goodness to the villages. Rumah IDEA is a non profit organisation aka yayasan (not commercial) located in Bali, Indonesia. Our actions are based on three pillars: permaculture practice for good farming, recycled product creation and knowledge exchange between people all over the world. Kaleidoscope Community House is a community project. We are a community that thrives on connections and mutual support. Everyone participates, contributes, and benefits. Kaleidoscope vision is creating a harmonious place for living in community spirit and freedom of creativity of all kinds. We now have managed to turn an 12 years empty family compound of an special artist and friend of ours into an instrument of free spirits and together with Rumah IDEA we are creating a learning center for local village kids. Our existance is dependent of donations, all donations trough this site are going to fix the place to be more suitable for learning center and yayasans future projects. What we are up to here: The goal is to manifest a place, that people can meet up, live together, stay for few nights, learn, teach, share, care and co-create. We have plenty of room to do that, some of them made for bedrooms, one for huge workshop spaces (workshops for kids, indian dance, chocolte making, batik, dance, recycle art, movie nights – exhibition space coming up…) , one turned into a dormitory kind of space etc. The house is huge and stands on 1000m2 plot of land next to a jungle. The project is still on, so many things to develop, but we´ve gone a long way already. What we do is easily put in to the art of living, it´s a lifestyle. One goal is to get fully self sustainable one day. Others twirl around such things as Art, in it’s every possible form, transpersonal psychology, batik, recycle art, permaculture, healing, shaking, dancing, jamming, co creating, celebrating, meditating, Fun-Shui, the inevitability of the unexpected – the vortex of the cortex, knowing what we don’t know, while sampling the cosmos; from the darkness to the light; from the unreal to the real….from death to immortality… We salute all of ideas for workshops and such things, from trance dance to yoga, from woodcarving to healing… everything is just a step away from creation. Our art exhibiton space is almost ready, 10m x 10m of space with a projector. Our movement is built on a set of common values: • Community — We are a community that thrives on connections and mutual support. Everyone participates, contributes, and benefits. Our global family takes the initiative to care for our collective space, welcome visitors, orient new folks and sometimes host events and workshops (not yet by calendar but by the availability and interest of the people). We also reach out and contribute to our local community. • Collaboration — We work together in the way when someone needs a hand. We help each other out by sharing ideas, learning, solutions, life itself. • Openness — It is beneficial to share and build on each others’ ideas and knowledge. We go by co-creation! • Diversity — We want open-minded people with different ideas, perspectives and ways. People from different backgrounds. People at different stages in their life. Diversity means occasional misunderstandings and annoyance (very rarely though) — all of which are a small price to pay for sparking creativity. • Sustainability — Financially, this project was designed to sustain itself and the community, not to make a profit. Environmentally, like everyone, we are still learning and finding ways to lower our impact and promote sustainable solutions. We need to do more and welcome help with this. God speed, Rumah Idea and Kaleidoscope CH crew ♥
