This was such a welcome hotel! First, everything worked! Comfortable bed, clean, nice, funky, but basic decor with a working shower and a functional toilet. Power after dark. Great front deck area. Very good breakfast complete with tasty fresh buns, ample fresh fruit, tea or coffee and all served on your front porch shortly after you woke up. A refreshing... More

Nirvana is just okay, nice bungalows and not to much rooms. But that's about it. Riung deserves a better place but I don't think there is any. We took a boat trip arranged by the hotel to the 17 islands. Their trip is okay. Although they speak limited English and just follow the other boats, just what we didn't wanted.... More

We spent 2 nights at Nirvana Riung. We loved it. We paid 200.000 rph p/night. Nirvana is close to the harbour and the 2 restaurants of Riung. Bed perfect, musquitonet perfect, (cold) shower and toilet outside OK. Breakfast is poor for Western standards. Tom (owner) is a really helpfull guy. He will help you to arrange your daytrip and transport... More

This is a gerat place to stay in Riung. The bungalows are nice and clean, basic outdoor bathrooms, with mandi style cold shower, and a fan inside. It's so hot you don't really need hot water... breakfast is included, and coffee or tea is always offered. The price (150 000 Rp) is normal for Flores, and the atmosphere and people... More

Basic bungalows with a little terrasse. We paid 150.000 IDR a night. There is no hot water but you don't really need it anyway. Tom, the chilled-out owner is very friendly and helpful and speaks really good English. He likes to have a chat with the guests. They had a few problems with stealing before so he is very careful...

Heard about the stealing and evertything too in the bungalow, thats why the owner and the staff always remind us to lock the main door and the bathroom. But in the other hands, this place is awesome. Pretty basic but what can u ask more in Flores? clean room, pretty cheap and warm athmosphere. They also provide the trip to... More

The room seemed to be prepared for the stealing which occured during the night 1. There were holes in the walls to check when guests are asleep - they have been made from inside 2. The mosquito net neatly tucked beneath the mattress - but explicitly left outside next to pillow to allow reaching valuables inside from beneath the bed... More

These are nice, clean bungalows in Riung. Nice and private with mosquito nets. This is a good place to stay when you are passing through Riung. They even went and got beer for us, which was really cool.

Nirvana Bungalows are clean, quiet, and the property has a good atmosphere. The owner, Tam, is extremely helpful, informative, and nice. The staff are nice as well, and sporatic dinners are delicious!
