I stayed there three times. They are different level of accommodation according budget. The best are A/C apartments in the middle of the hill-bit pricey. The top of the hill offers great views and romantic sunset. These rooms only have fans but once u leave your door open you dont need more. The lower part of the hill offers bungalows..but... More

The rooms here are nothing to write home about at all. What was worse was the walk with our luggage to the top of the hill. That was torture. We asked for some help but they just said sorry. The room’s AC was working well and we ate at a little restaurant down the hill which was ok. The Wi-Fi... More

This hotel propose cheap place to stay. Included breakfast. The room was basic but nice. It was a bit loud during the night because of the street but everywhere in LB it's loud. The staff was friendly and they helped us with our questions. The WiFi is not available in the room, you have to go to the restaurant. The... More

OK so rooms start from around Rp 200,000 up to 500,000 rooms differ in price for the "view" which given the right room is stunning. The air con rooms are more expensive and these have western style toilets and sinks. I think all the other ones are the same (bamboo type huts) and they don't have flushing toilets or sinks... More

- bad service - no clean towels - no room cleaning - no water - rude desk manager (man) - they see themselves as a cheap hotel and if you comment their service they say that you cannot expect more. Cheap minded is they call on themselves. - breakfast is poor. Sometimes you need to wait >20 min on 1... More

Dont have any expectations and dont book in advance..! Pretty expensive for what it is... Labaun Bajo has a power capacity problem, the Gardena does have a generator for back up but its not powerful enough for Air conditioning! Keep this in mind if this is important to you as you could end up very hot and sweaty! My room... More

The staff are rude and unprofessional towards tourists. They are not nice people at all. There are many hotels to choose from in Labuan Bajo other than this one with the same prices overall in the city.

Lovely bungalow up in the gods overlooking the harbour (would be nice if someone did help with bags as it is a long walk from reception). I first stayed here 3 years ago and I do think it has improved - more fans in the room and the staff seemed friendlier though I would agree the breakfast is not great.... More

Situated in the main road, near to cafes, restaurants, night market and the jetty. Not to mention the spectacular view you could enjoy during the sunset! We got a bungalow with a fan for only 200k a night plus breakfast. Met a nice local dog who shared the porch with us for the night.

This "hotel" looks quite nice from the outside. But here's what it is: The rooms doesn't have a proper toilet, the shower is really bad and nasty, the floor in the room is broken, the fan only works sometimes, the breakfast doesn't seem fresh and we couldn't even get water, you have to buy water to your breakfast!
