Less than 5 minutes walk to the action of Gili T, Ricel is a small and friendly homestay ideal for spending a few nights on the island. The rooms are spacious with cool air con and a good size bathroom. The hot water can be sporadic, but this is the case almost everywhere as the island develops. Wifi is good... More

We stayed two nights on gili and these bungalows were so comfy and clean! It is a little bit behind the main Street at the beach, so it's more quite and not that busy like the other hotels in the front row! So if I would come back to Gili Tranwangan I would definitely stay with this awesome host! He... More

The important thing to remember when staying at Ricel Homestay is that it is a 3 star Homestay. If you want your room cleaned or extra toilet paper you have to ask. This is an easy thing to do as all units are ground level and close to the office. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is small but delicious... More

We stayed 3 nights in Ricel's Homestay. I have a bit mixed feelings about it. First of all the staff and the service is really good and they really try their best. But the equipment of the rooms is kind of poor. The bed is really bad and i had a lot of back pain after the 3 nights. Also... More

Stayed here for three nights (planed to stay only two but extended after the first night). Had a great experience and we are very satisfied with room, breakfast and especially management and service. Kim was introduced as our host and he did an absolutely amazing job: very welcoming, gave us a lot of useful tipps, organized laundry and bike rental... More

We had a great stay at Ricel. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Their are some breakfast options, we stuck with the banana pancakes (crepes, actually) as they were quite tasty. It's in a great location, only a few minutes to the main road with lots of nearby restaurants. It's also close to the best snorkeling spot on the... More

My husband and I stayed here in a superior room (A/C) for four nights. It is located a block away from the beach which allows for a good nights sleep but is also close enough to all the restaurants and bars. The room is a decent size with a comfortable bed and big bathroom (shower only). It has a nice... More

This homestay is modest but absolutely fine for staying on Gili T. Away from the main front, you may have to navigate your way around some puddles if there's been a storm but it has everything you need without being luxurious. The shower wasn't fantastic but it did provide hot water and the staff were very helpful. Would stay again... More

Only 2 pancakes for breakfast? Seriously. Good manager, Olek. Excellent manager. Freaking cheap owner. There are so many places to stay here that you should really shop around. This is QUIET away from the party bars. But the call to prayers are everywhere here in Gili. The new LOUD sound systems of the calling to prayers has made this a... More
