My girlfriend and I stayed at this quaint little homestay for 5 nights, and we had a highly enjoyable stay. It is tuck away, just around the corner off of the main strip of the island, which was perfect for us as we could enjoy the evening nightlife, and then melt into the background where is was less noisy and...

We stayed for just one night in Ricel Homestay. It's located near the port and the main shopping/restaurant strip but in the backstreets so it's peaceful and quiet. The rooms are basic, with cold water showers (brackish water, like most places on the island). There is a lovely garden and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic... More

My girlfriend and I stayed 10 nights at Ricel Homestay. The room was pricey for what it offered, so I'm wondering if Agoda is the right website to be used when choosing this kind of accommodation. Oleg and the other guys were friendly and helpful and they helped us arrange a cidomo to the harbour early in the morning on... More

We booked to stay here a couple of days before arriving on Gili. We paid what turned out to be an expensive price for an extremely basic room. Firstly we found it extremely hard to find but when we eventually did get there we were shown to our room which resembled an oven - it was so much hotter inside... More

Ricel homestay is a lovely place to stay in a small tropical garden. The rooms are nice and clean and the guy that works here (Kim) is just very sweet and helpful. He'll arrange everything you need -from borrowing his own bike to having your laundry done. Rooms are pretty quiet given that the partycenter of Gili T is so... More

We really enjoyed our staying in Ricel homestay. Mostly because of the friendly and helpful staff,but also good location (close to the beach and main street, yet far from noise). We would have preferred cupboard or desk in the room,but all the rest existed. We recommend to take a room with aircon. Definitely would go back next time:-)
