Ricel homestay is a lovely place to stay in a small tropical garden. The rooms are nice and clean and the guy that works here (Kim) is just very sweet and helpful. He'll arrange everything you need -from borrowing his own bike to having your laundry done. Rooms are pretty quiet given that the partycenter of Gili T is so close (5 min walk). The horsecarts drive by the back of your room (so that might wake you up early) and of course you hear the Mosk, like everywhere on the island.
Downside to this location is that the rooms, bed and towels weren't cleaned nor changed. We also understood from our neighbours that they paid almost the double price (600.000 idr/n) for the same room as we had, but they didn't have airconditioning and we did. That seemed pretty strange to us. So be alert on the roomprices!
Overall it's a good budget option to stay at the Gili's. We paid 350.000 idr/n for a standard room with AC (no hot water).
