Within easy access from the harbor, 5 min walk to the beach and to the restaurant/bar area. Safe, quiet, small place. With good value, clean and spacious rooms, each having an own terrace. The garden is really pleasant and spiritual place to sit and relax. Tasty banana pancakes, good coffee and fruit salad for breakfast.
Really great and cozy place with the charming owner, Dian, who has local knowledge and exciting stories from all over the world. He is really making everyone feel at home.
We stayed four nights and had a great time: enjoying the discussions with Dian and made friends with couple from the neigbourg room. Definitely THE place to stay in Gili Trawangan!

As soon as you turn the corner of the small road of the guesthouse the music and the noise of the funny night in Gili stop !! 4 quite rooms with a nice and trim garden, the landlord Mr Dian, is very nice, very helpful for anything you'll need, expecially if you are looking for informations to organize your travel in lombok or to the others islands (i suggest Flores !!!), he'll take care for you, he'll wait for you waking up, to prepare a wonderful breakfast sitting in the garden, he'll help you with very useful advices (about diving, travelling,... sometimes about life!).
what more... wi-fi, hot water, 1-2 minutes walking from restaurantes, diving centers and the beach-
Price: we went there in very low season but it was incredibly low (even comparing with others in gili) we paied 180 kRp /room/night.
Enjoy.

Good value, clean and spacious room. Great breakfast, tasty banana pan cakes, good coffee and fruit salad. Friendly host with very good local knowledge and diving experience. Cold water showers available, with either fan or air conditioned rooms. Not to far from the beach, 5 min walk, but far enough to get away from the busy bars and restaurants if desired. Overall a lovely stay x

Having spent many years travelling, I found the attraction to Rumah Kundun was the personal and respectful interaction with Dian and his wife to be most welcoming and rewarding. It was by far the most respectful place that I have stayed. Their welcome to me as an overseas guests and their gentle approach to me as a visitor in their home was something amazing. On a less spiritual note, the rooms are well presented and clean. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and the rooms are proportionate to the experience of staying on Gili T on the budget price that is offered. I will defiantely be staying there again, for the bannana pancakes and fruit every morning that is presented to you with fresh coffee as soon as you walk out of the room. Awesome.

Room Tip: Depending on the time of year, gusests can chose from an airconditioned and fan, or fan only room...

When we finally did arrive at this little oasis so we understood that we have come to the right place. We were tired and hungry and Kade (one of the owners) immediately asked if we wanted something to eat. She made the most amazing pancakes. We were so well cared for that we stayed for the entire 14 days. We would really only been there for 5, but could not take us. The place is called Rumah Kundun after their little son.
The place is a bit remote, which is great so you do not hear any nightclub. So you need not worry if you have kids or just do not like to party.
You are close to the main street and all the restaurants and all the shops. You can go back way down to the beach and watch as the inhabit are doing their own natchochips and prepare for tonight's dinner. You can also go up to the top of the island via a long staircase. The view is fantastic.
You can also take a bike ride around the island and visit remote places to eat and look out on a very calm sea. What I was most fascinated by was that there is only a horse and carriage and bike on the island. It enables you to have a different kind of peace.
This small island, this small hostel, I recomend everyone and it is dear to my heart. Kade, Dian and Kundun (the family that owns Rumah Kundun) are so helpful and kind-hearted that you can not but love them!
I could be written a whole book on my vacation there but that's not the point, the point is: GO THERE!

We had a marvelous stay at Rumah Kundun. The room was spacious and light, matras and pillow soft and clean sheet. They even have top sheet which is lovely especially for my young daughter. Breakfast was served outside on our little porch and consisting of toast with eggs, fresh fruit and delicious Lombok Coffe looking at the tranquil garden and the owner comes to give you suggestion as to where the best snorkelling spots on the island. What more can you ask for a perfect guest house?
