We stayed in a basic room and it was fine. If you want fancy rooms with all the works this isn't it. Its a room, with a bed, mosquito net and bathroom. The toilet is a local loo so it wont flush, you just use the bucket of water. But having said that, relative to the other places around, this... More

NO WIFI !! My boyfriend and I stayed only 1 night after diving for a few days. We did reserve in advance for a doublebed room with A/C and hot water (40$). When we arrived, we were told that this room had a problem and the hot water was not working. Because all I wanted after 5 days on the... More

Stayed here for several weeks total while diving and exploring the island with a friend+. Stayed in the nicest accommodation they have (rooms 206-212, for 420,000 IDR). Seeing what LBJ has to offer, Gardena is not so bad unless you are willing to go higher-end. Some of the nicer hotels with pools, father from town, start at 500k, but you... More

Before we checked out we were very happy with the Gardena - nice little bungalow set off of the road, pleasant surroundings and a very good included breakfast. Unfortunately when it came to payment out went so badly that I feel inclined to rate as only 1 star. Upon arrival we saw different prices for single and double. We understood... More

That hotel is nice because is placed at the hills of Labuanbajo. The views from the top rooms are the best with the bay in the front, the fishermen and the boats. The sunset here is priceless. The restaurant is perfect if you are lazy to walk. The harbour is near the hotel and there are many diving and snorkel... More

We stayed here after our four day boat tour from Lombok and pretty much checked into the first place we saw from the pier. The rooms are basic and the walls are thin but the beds are comfortable. Self - flushing toilets and cold showers. The bathrooms are old and a bit smelly. No wifi but the italian restaurant next... More

Stayed one night in Bungalow 4 and was eaten up by bedbugs. Once I realized it, I jumped out of my bed at 3 in the morning, took a shower and had to sleep on the porch as there was no night staff available who could have shown me to another room. The nexg morning I wanted boiling water to... More

For what you pay it's a fine hotel. Dont expect fancy rooms, but it's located well in the town (dive komodo is the best dive center, right across from Gardena) and the breakfast is quite nice, which is included. So a good budget place to stay!

I don't know what people have to complaint about this place. If you are a backpacker travelling low season, 150 000 RPH for 2 is kind of a good price for a clean room. Of course lots of stairs, but when you look at the view, totally worth the hike if you ask me. No sheet yes, but ask for... More
