I am staying at Pondok Lita. Pretty much everything is in walking distance and it's quiet in here. Rooms are clean, although not cleaned every day. Wifi is unreliable. And I'm not so sure about the price. On the internet I've seen rates of $20(Gili-hotels.com) for the cheapest room and they make me pay 300.000IDR for room no. 3, fan... More

We stayed here for one week in the only air con room. Room was nothing special but was clean, no insects. The air con worked well and there was also a nice fan to help cool down the room. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Great location. Just minutes walk to some of the best restaurants on the island.... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights and I had a really good time. It was very convenient (only 10US$ for a twin room) and service was great. Every morning, you can enjoy a great breakfast (included) made by pancakes, fruits, milkshake. They even did my laundry for free! Definitely a great place if you're travelling with friends!

Pondok Lita was definitely a highlight of my whole trip in Indonesia. Tommy the live-in manager does everything he possibly can to make sure you have a fun and enjoyable stay. There are three types of room, all reasonably priced and one air-con room which is slightly bigger than the rest. We originally booked to stay five nights but ended... More

I had a hard time with wiping my bum and putting the soiled tissue into a trash can that just sat there. The trash and... More
