“A really enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We had a great time staying at Edy's. Norman and the rest of the staff were fantastic with us from the word go. They shared food and drinks with us, hung out and chatted to us and made us all feel at home. The room itself was good value for money and had all of the facilities we needed. We had no problems at all with the noise and we liked the location just a couple of minutes away from the main road.

I would not hesitate to stay there again. There were 2 room types a fan and an AC, we stayed in the fan room and it was absolutely fine. I would highly recommend Edy's for the superb atmosphere, value for money and perfect location. Thank you Norman!

We stay 4 nights at Edy's homestay in february 2013. The room was not clean, I don't think they change the sheets before we arrived. The hotel is noisy, as it's pretty small and everyone is drinking on the balcony. We were diving with my boyfriend and we find it difficult to rest for the night there.

If you want to have party in your hotel, you definitly can go there but if you want to sleep, avoid...

The last night I step though the floor! wich was in wood but it's was rotten, so that was even pretty dangerous.

Regarding to what I was saying I don't think this is a good value for money in Gili trawangan. For the same price you can find so much better, even in the same street.

First, it's not a homestay. We booked the place because of great reviews - don't know what people were raving about. So shortly:
1) the first thing we were asked upon arrival was if we wanted to buy weed. Nice for some people I guess, and though I have nothing against weed, a simple "hello" would have been nicer :)
2) the bungalows have no privacy whatsoever. The place is REALLY small - that means four bungalows in two rows, separated by a two-metre "garden".
3) the staff consists of a bunck of young locals who listen to music, smoke, do drugs and try to sell you everything from drugs to boattrips all the time.
4) the rooms are basic - I mean really basic. You can do better for the same or less money. (Try the next place on the same side of the road).
5) if you need sleep to function, go somewhere else. Unfortunately the staff owns a guitar and know about 10 of the early 2000's "western hits", which they play all the time. I love music, I really do - just not the same songs, over and over again, at 1 am at my doorstep (since there are no common areas or such they were actually playing at our doorstep).

After two nights we ended up moving one block ahead further away from the beach - the bungalows were more private, more well kept, the bathroom was awesome compared to that of edy's and the breakfast was a little bit better. Also, we could sleep. A big bonus.

Ok so maybe it doesn't look as luxury as the photos but what edy lacks in luxury it makes up for in charm.
Even though this is just a set of 8 rooms it keeps its family feel thanks to Norman and his friends who are always on hand to get you coffee or well whatever you need :)
It's just a little off the main road but close to two shops which are cheaper than the main drag. It's close to all the nightlife but doesn't suffer from any of the noise.
Yes the walls could do with a lick if paint, and the corners a dust but you won't find better value nor made to feel more at home elsewhere on Gili.

I came 3 times in Gili T I stayed in 5 different places and for sure this one was the best. 2 aircon bungalow and 5 fan room with terrasse and hammock. Nice Bfast. This place is so small that you hapen to meet everybody very fast and the staff make you feel home really. Nothing to compare with the big hotel or guest house around.
Have fun and if you enjoy your stay don't forget to tip the staff.

We arrived on Gili T with no accomodation booked, with our backpacks, looking for budget accomodation. Norman approached us with a brochure for Edy Homestay, it looked like a basic, safe place to stay so we had a look at a room. The room was basic with a double bed and single bed, fan and bathroom- all nice and clean. We loved our stay at Edy Homestay, the staff (especially Norman) made us feel very welcome and at home. It is a great location for everything on the island, and far enough away from the noise of the bars! I would 100% recommend Edy Homestay to anyone travelling to Gili T, and i'll 100% be back! Oh and breakfast is included which is always a bonus (especially if you;re travelling on a budget!).

Edy's was a total find! Having come to Gili T with no real plan (and looking at almost all of the hotels in that area) my girlfriend and I were so happy with staying at Edy's. The staff was incredibly friendly, though their English was only so-so, the room was clean, and the price was right. We paid 200,000 rupiah for an AC room, and breakfast was included. There was no closet or dresser or anything to store your stuff, but the en suite bathroom was incredible. Made of what looked like terra cotta, it was partially outdoors, so if you like outdoor showers its an added bonus. The location was great, it was very close to the beach as well as a lot of the bars and restaurants on the island. The only bad part about our stay here was the water. The sink and shower water were semi-salt water, and by the time we were getting ready to leave it stopped working entirely.
