Stayed here for 3 nights, arrived at the island with no where to stay and found this place, great facilities, strong wifi and amazing staff. Staff and friends are very welcoming and offered me to hang out at night with them while they jammed on the guitar. They organised my snorkelling trip which was awesome and provided me with a...

If you need a tv and a swimming pool look elsewhere.... But if your looking for a comfy bed, good air con, en suit with proper shower & amazing friendly host then this is a great place. Such good value as a traveller/backpacker or a holiday goer. Also when we got our washing back it smelt amazing! I'd highly recommend... More

A new and clean homestay in a good location. Only a few minutes walk to the beach and Main Street. Gardens were a little over grown and we thought it could be a bit nicer. Lovely family who runs the homestay. Perfect if you want somewhere clean and to use it as a base.

Great little place. Close enough to town that you're always within easy walking distance. Bit far away enough from the noise to get a good nights sleep.... apart from the the Muslim prayer thing but you just can't escape that. Excellent price for what was offered. One of the cleanest rooms I've been in so far. Very modern looking. Hot... More

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
