The room was very spacious, the people were lovely. Arrived and was assigned room 6, on the corner of the entrance you walk in. The bed was very large and lovely to relax on. On the first night the air con was working at a very low level, I woke up the following morning with multiple Bed Bug bites up... More

Nice place. Clean rooms. Very friendly staff. Nice banana pancakes for breakfast and just a short (10minute?) walk from the hustle and bustle of the busy main street. Also has a small garden just to give a bit of a relaxing atmosphere. And all that for a decent price.

We are a family of 5 so needed two rooms, we found this place to be a little gem. Two streets back from the Main Street so you don't hear the load music and the 4:30am mosque music is really faint, just perfect.

We stayed here during ramadam, which proved difficult to find a hostel during this time. The staff were very friendly and we could barter with the price. We had air conditioning and a fan. The water was mostly cold but we didn't mind due to the weather. It does not have a pool, but very relaxed atmosphere. There is wifi... More

I am staying at Pondok Lita. Pretty much everything is in walking distance and it's quiet in here. Rooms are clean, although not cleaned every day. Wifi is unreliable. And I'm not so sure about the price. On the internet I've seen rates of $20(Gili-hotels.com) for the cheapest room and they make me pay 300.000IDR for room no. 3, fan... More

We stayed here for one week in the only air con room. Room was nothing special but was clean, no insects. The air con worked well and there was also a nice fan to help cool down the room. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Great location. Just minutes walk to some of the best restaurants on the island.... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights and I had a really good time. It was very convenient (only 10US$ for a twin room) and service was great. Every morning, you can enjoy a great breakfast (included) made by pancakes, fruits, milkshake. They even did my laundry for free! Definitely a great place if you're travelling with friends!

Pondok Lita was definitely a highlight of my whole trip in Indonesia. Tommy the live-in manager does everything he possibly can to make sure you have a fun and enjoyable stay. There are three types of room, all reasonably priced and one air-con room which is slightly bigger than the rest. We originally booked to stay five nights but ended... More

As usual, I read good reviews on forums and on Trip Adviser...and thus booked my room. I have never been disappointed with any recommendations from folks on Trip Advisor until I got to Pondok Lita. I had a hard time with wiping my bum and putting the soiled tissue into a trash can that just sat there. The trash and... More
