    Great room for the price and the staff was very nice. Without notifying them, I arrived 4.5 hours before check in (was going to just ask them to hold my bag) but they let me in my room! Awesome location--only a couple minute walk to the beach. Also, the room was very quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

    Great Location, Great Breakfast and Helpful Staffs
    It was really great! Considering the price rate, it was very worth it. The location are near with the beach (5 min with bicycle), but somehow still have this quiet environment (not noisy from the party on the beach). You can also rent a bicycle there and the staff will provide them for you (IDR 30.000/ day) Also, for a budget hotel; they have several choice of breakfast that's taste good for your morning activity. The room is clean and comfort. So does the bathroom. They provide towel, however there's no toiletries provided

    Pros: a few meters to the beach (about 1-2 mins walk). Cons: hot shower isn’t working. Nobody fixed it even after telling the staff several times. Nobody was there to serve us breakfast on the 2nd day and when we checked out. No TV. Bed was old as it creates noise with every move.

    Our stay was good for the price. Nothing much more to say as it is a homestay so the facilities cannot be as good as a hotel but is was more than enough. One wrong point is that there is no hot water. Otherwise everything was fine.

    Staff are amazing”
    Me and my boyfriend stayed here for just over a week. The staff are so friendly on arrival, a family run guest house, all willing to help and advise where needed. My boyfriend became unwell with dehydration and they always asked how he was doing and advised us on the best health centre to visit. I then became unwell and had to be rushed to Lombok to hospital for 2 nights, the staff kept our room clean and secure and also extended our stay whilst we were away to accommodate us. On our return walk from the harbour we bumped into a staff member, one of the family, that greeted us straight away and asked how we were and then cycled with us back to the guest house, they all greeted us with pleasure on our return and expressed concern for us. They were so welcoming and we couldn't t have appreciated it anymore after a 3 month trip away from it was very reassuring knowing that someone was thinking about us in our time of need. They made a lovely breakfast everyday at your request, basic but good. I can't express our gratitude for how lovely they were. I would definitely recommend. It is about a 10/15 minute walk from the harbour/boat drop off point. We hired bikes from the beach and they were happy for us to keep them on site and advised us on where to keep them for security and also moved them when they felt was needed. I would 100% stay here again. Thank you guys!

    The only issues were out of Ricel's control”
    The room was great. It was clean and large and comfortable. The AC works really well and is so, so welcome on a hot Indonesian day. It had been raining a lot and the mosquitos were a bit out of control so Ricel had put out mosquito coils for every room, which was a nice touch. They were also very helpful in finding us bike rentals (fetching the bikes and returning them for us). The only downside, which is entirely out of their control, is that the power was out for most of a day and without a fan, AC, or light it was uncomfortable. But they have portable LED lamps for these occasions. I would stay here again.

    Room was clean and tidy, location was excellent 5 minute walk from harbour and staff were incredible”
    We stayed 1 night to explore the islands, and only really needed a place to sleep. We were pleasantly surprised by this little place. Firstly was a 5 minute walk from the harbour, 1 street in from the beach but ideal for a quiet night to sleep! I have to say the staff were incredible very helpful and friendly. We got a welcome drink on arrival, and breakfast the following day which I have to say was very tasty. The staff were lovely and answered all our questions about the islands and how to get around etc. We only stayed for 1 night but they made us very welcome. I highly recommend this place to those who are stopping over for a few nights and just need a place to stay. You have what you need for a limited stay but for those looking to stay for longer may want to choose a place with more facilities.

    Quaint Little Homestay”
    Beautiful little homestay located 15 minutes away from the harbor on foot. Bed, room, and bathroom were all very clean and looked well-maintained. Be aware that most places on Gili T. don't have warm water, including this place. Breakfast was amazing and you have a list of dishes to choose from. Location-wise, the homestay is located well away from the noise coming from the main-strip and far enough from the mosque that there's little chance of you waking up to the morning calls of prayer. The owners and staff were so sweet and friendly and even helped me book a snorkeling trip. If you have any questions about the public ferries or the fast boats to and from the Gilis, don't hesitate to ask them. They also have bicycle rentals for 40k a day. The bikes have seen better days but they get the job done. Honestly, I'm surprised this place hasn't gotten higher ratings. It's a clean, well-maintained place (something that's hard to find on the Gili Islands). I an most definitely staying here again if I decide to come back to Gili T.

    Amazing staff, back to basics but better than the 5* restorts”
    We did 3.5 weeks in Indonesia travelling from Island to Island for my Kid sisters 21st Birthday, we stayed at loads of 3-5* resorts where the towels are fluffy and room service is extensive however this was the last stop and we could not believe how even though we went back to basics, it was where we were the most happiest. The room has a large double bed, a safe, AC, and two small side drawers and that's it, so we did live out of our suitcases but it didn't bother us. The breakfast menu is basic of scrambled egg or fried egg on toast or pancakes, but after eating so much variety actually it was nice to have food that was not over powered with spices and a lovely glass of fresh orange juice made me smile or tea and coffee. The room and the bathroom is spacious, they provide towels and clean the room whenever you ask. We stayed at the homestay for 6 days and it was the best 6 days because the staff were so humble, not sleezy, and attentive and as its small (only have 10 rooms) they know your name and attend to your every need. The patio space was lovely overseen by a beautiful tropical garden, we had a pea tree outside our room and in the morning you end up speaking to the neighbors but if you want to be left alone the garden does provide cover, the room was clean, shower a little cold at times but if you wait for a few moments it gets warmer. I asked all the hotels that we stayed in when booking the room that it was my sisters 21st and could they do something special. during the trip we had decided to do a trek on Mount Rininjin, so when we arrived earlier than when i can called them so they were not expecting us as as i wasn't sure when we would fiinish the trek, and arrived at 9pm at night, muddy, hot and sweaty, they knew my name as soon as i arrived and asked us to wait for a bit, and in this time they had quickly called their friend the gardener and made a beautiful arrangement of flowers all over our bed (looked like something for a honeymoon couple but
