Simple bungalows on the hill side. Nice view on the islands, especially from the breakfast terrace. Breakfast buffet style with either fried rice or noodles, a salad, pancakes, and toasts and jam. 176000 IDR for a single bungalow, not many other options found in this price range in LB. No discount given for a 3-night stay. No internet, need to... More

Not a lot of budget options in his rather dirty town, best of the low cost ones. We agree it has loads of potential but falls flat when it comes to staff. They just don't seem that interested in making the place clean and comfortable. Breakfast is so so, and often late when everyone is wanting to go diving, and... More

I think it wasn't that bad. The sleeping quality was good, prices were nice, rooms were clean,view was great, and actually I loved the breakfast! Really good pancakes!! We went to see the other hotels near the pier. Nooot nice- really awful and quite expensive so I think Gardena was the best budget option. Staff were rude, that is true.... More

This hotel has the potential to be really amazing, if just a little extra work was put in. The bungalows are looking shabby and old and the interiors are damp and a bit musty. The breakfast was highly disappointing, there was no choice and we were served thick, stodgy pancakes. Staff were not very welcoming, friendly or helpful and made... More

I stayed there for one night. Was distroyed with Bed bug bites. The room was very run down. In the morning something had chewed through my rucksack. And the staff member we dealt with was very rude toward us. I would not stay there again

This place could be really nice - beautiful view on a pirate style bay, cosy surrounding, quite clean bungalows. But I was really dissapointed with staff behaviour. They were rude. They had a problem to give me breakfast 10 minutes earlier (I had my ferry boat in the morning) even though everything was ready. In the beginning they showed me... More

We stayed there one night then had to move to another place and ended up spending about a week in L.Bajo total. The hotel is set on a hillside with beautiful views overlooking the harbor. The rooms are basic bungalows (bed was okay, but no sink) and you can hear your neighbors every move. Luckily we had quite ones. The... More

First of all I have to say that I do not have big expectation from places like this – I understand that it’s not Ritz and so I lower my standards. But this is one of the worst places I stayed in Indonesia First good thing: 1. Good localization 2. Cheap Now not so good: 1. Service What I love... More

Stayed here after doing a tour of komodo island. Purely booked on price but it was still a bit more than I expected to pay for this type of accommodation. There is a nice view and if your lucky you can get WiFi from the restaurant next door.

Nice view and restaurant next door. great location right on the main street, it was a little pricey for the state of the rooms. There was no WiFi while we were there, but you can use the restaurant next door.
