Really basic hotel for a really nice price. The AC is enjoyable. Wifi is good. The breakfast very very basic, but we couldn't ask more for the price. The location is inside the island, 10 minutes walking from the busy strip. Which was far enough to have tranquility, close enough to go to the dive centers. But we enjoyed one... More

A nice hotel in gili trawangan! You are close enough to the main street to be there in 2 minutes, but far enough to have a good sleep without earing the music from the bars. They offer bike rental for 30k rupiah per 24h, so all you have to do is to left the bikes at the hotel when you... More

The homestay is a 5 minute walk from the main road, which is great because it is away from the noise at night. The staff were very nice, and made us a delicious breakfast every morning. The room was clean, and we had our own small patio out front!

Myself and my boyfriend spent three nights here on our trip to Gili T. We had a nice stay, but you pay for what you get - i.e. It is not luxury, so don't expect it! We had to ask for the broom to sweep our room free from sand (from our own feet) as they don't have a daily... More

The room was clean, the wifi worked, the bed was comfortable and the location was fine. However, the staff here were slightly strange. As soon as we arrived the owner pointed out that I had dropped my money belt on the floor which I thanked him for. He then made a really strange, unfunny 'joke' about how 'the money belt... More

Nice place with pretty foliage scattered between the rooms. The host, Olek, is a machine and works tirelessly to keep the place clean and provide a good service. The rooms are good for the price, tidy with quiet AC and a nice bathroom. Bed could be better but for the price I have no right to whinge. Would definitely recommend.

Squeecky bed, poor shower, lots of bugs in the room, noisy a/c, annoying staff. Upon arrival, we wanted twin beds, which they could not offer, so had to sleep on a very poor mattress; basically slept on the ground. Information on Agoda is poor, so do more research! Staff was not helpful and forgot many things we requested. Furthermore, they... More

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
