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

Ricel was 10 mins walking from the port and yet, it situated at more quieter place, so you wont be bothered with noisy bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Love the bed, really comfortable and clean room ! Very good wi-fi too!

It was really great! Considering the price rate, it was very worth it. The location are near with the beach (5 min with bicycle), but somehow still have this quiet environment (not noisy from the party on the beach). You can also rent a bicycle there and the staff will provide them for you (IDR 30.000/ day) Also, for a... More

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
