Unfortunately during our stay we encountered the two resident dogs at this home stay. We were warned by our driver that they could be violent but perhaps naively we continued to believe that this #1 hostel couldn't be bad! It was!! Do not bother to stay there! The service and basic amenities were overshadowed by two of the most terrifying... More

Ratu's guesthouse is clean, comfortable and unbelievably cheap; we paid 80,000 IDR for a large simple room with a huge double bed and mosquito net. The bathroom is shared but divided into male and female, with a cold water shower and western toilets. It's located next to the market and within walking distance to all the local sights; Ratu and...

It's can be a little tricky to find but most of the locals know where it is. I came here without having booked. I suggest that a booking is made as in the peak season, all the rooms are full. First, be aware that there is an aerobics class around 5.30 - 6am every morning. This has noting to do... More

I had arranged a room in advance, but when I arrived I was told that Ratu wasn’t there and I didn’t have a room reserved. I was told to wait around outside in the courtyard, and Ratu would arrive in a couple of hours. It was hard not to be upset about this as I had had a LONG day... More

If you are looking for a simple place but very friendly, you have to go visit Ratu. I've never seen someone so friendly, always smiling. He will give you good advices to help you to discover Lombok. Just go to meet him.

We arrived at Ratu Guesthouse after a long day of travelling. We stayed two nights. We arrived at 11pm but Ratu was still there to greet us. Ratu is a really great guy and very helpful. His guesthouse is in a good location for finding warungs and meeting local people who are very friendly when you make an effort. The... More

Even though I was planning to stay a week in gili gede at ViaVacare I chose to stay 5 days in mataram with Ratu, his friends and family even though Mataram isn't that special. Ratu's guesthouse is rather basic, unbelievably cheap but very comfortable and was a perfect home away from home for me. Especially after being away from my... More

this sweet little guesthouse with its nice garden is owned by the most generous, friendly and happy man, Ratu. With his self made maps of the town and surroundings you will never get lost! The rooms are simple but spacious and clean.

Came across this place on TripAdvisor while looking a place to stay to sort out visas in Mataram. Very happy with our decision! Mataram itself wasn't of much interest sight-wise (we tried... walked around for hours), but the people were generally very friendly and responded to big smiles and a few words. Ratu's place is simple and in the middle... More
