Staff where unreal, very friendly including the owner! A small hotel with 8 rooms some have hot water others didnt! Can get a bit hot during the day but thats everywhere on the island! Cheap to stay there so suits budget travellers! Water pressure in the showers is a bit low thats the only fault!

The 3/5 says it all, it's perfectly average for Gili T but certainly not bad at all. Clean, comfortable with very good aircon. Owners were ok, very friendly but a bit odd at times. E.g. offered to clean the room for us on the 2nd or 3rd day we were there, we agreed obviously and then they asked for our... More

well. Clean beds, clean toilet, but everything is down to the basics and nothing is made to make it look cosy in any way, except the green area in the middle. The place is very small and run by very young personel. they are nice, but there is a lack of feeling for what is ok and what is not..... More

We stayed there for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. The whole family and crew was extremely friendly and helpful. Especially Gim was very friendly and talkative. The room was big enough and the bed was comfortable. Everything was also very clean. The breakfast is very good and served to the own balkony. The only negative point is that... More

Spacious room and bathroom with cold water shower (as common in Gili Islands). Very basic furnitures. Nice staff. We found the bed sheets dirty and with a hole in the middle of the bed. This can be acceptable for a budget accommodation, but considering Ricel Homestay price is twice the price of a standard room in Indonesia, we would have... More

A comfortable stay in Gili T with a good location if you want to be by the busy harbour side. Breakfast was nice and is brought to your room every morning. Room is pretty basic and we ran out of water after one shower but overall, we enjoyed our stay in Ricel.

This was a great find! Me and my wife stayed here for 6 nights . Not too far from the Main Street , clean rooms and amazing staff. Everyday we would walk past the family and they would ask how our day was and would tell us some places to go. Bike rental prices 40k which was the cheapest we... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few nights and extended. We loved Gili T and it was made even better by the friendly family and staff on site. We did have a cold shower initially but changed rooms to a hot one. Very close to the main strip and with rentable bikes, we were able to cycle the... More

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
