We arrived late at night but still knocked on many guesthouses doors for looking at the room. During that traveling time, it was so many constructions around the area, we picked a place that was rather quiet and simple and easy to go on to kelimutu in the morning. This place had different set up than others which had little... More

We stayed only one night in Hidayah Homestay during our trip through Flores. I was not sure what to expect because the reviews on Trip Advisor were very diverse. We arrived quite late from Maumere. The owner apologized right away because he could not shake our hand and could not show us the room because he was repairing a kerosene... More

I arrived to Hidayah late in the evening without a booking, and inititally I wanted just to have a look at this place and compare it with other homestays, but after what I've seen, I decided to stay and not look anymore for other accomodation. I was offered a room for three persons, but was informed that this room is... More

A great choice- large room, comfortable bed, lots of hot water with hosts who are charming and kind and genuinely want you to have a good time. It's certainly not a palace, but at this price it's excellent value. Moni and its surrounds are amazing and well worth the visit.

I was going to Moni with my friends, we haven't made our reservation at any hotels in Moni. Our travel driver seemed only having little knowledge about inns or hotels in Moni. We were going to stay at Bintang or Estevania lodge because we read nice reviews about them. But the driver stopped at Hidayah because he didn't know where's... More

I stayed again at Hidayah and I am very puzzled at the bad reviews. I have stayed there about 10 times, since it was a very basic bamboo, and have been pleasantly surprised, compared to the other hotels in Moni. The hot water is really appreciated, and the sit-on flush toilet is rare for this part of the world.The duvet... More

We had made reservations through a local contact in Flores well in advance. We arrived after a long day-trip with 3 weary kids, unloaded or backpacks... "We're full." "But we have reservations ;-)" "We're full. Nothing in our book." Packed up again, only to find every other accommodation in Moni already full at this time of day. Ended up staying... More

Hidayah was the top pick in the previous Lonely Planet and was removed from the book on the recent edition given customer complaints. Since recent TripAdvisor reviews were positive, we decided to give the accommodation a chance. That was a mistake. We were put off from the beginning when Brian tried to charge us 700,000 Rupiahs for a driver from... More

I saw some saying that bed sheets were dirty and not washed but they do wash. Stayed for 2 nights and saw them washing and changing. Owners are great and funny. Make sure you negotiate over prices including ojeck to the volcano. I asked Brian(husband) to book a bus to Bajawa. He said 150k which l did not believe. He... More
