Putu guest house 2 (***). The woman taking care of the homestay is very nice. They live beside the homestay but they respect the privacy of the guests. The location in Berawa beach is excellent. No brekfast is included but there are some cafes very near. The bed is huge but the toilet needs some reparation and painting.

Seminyak: Favehotel Seminyak (***). Good service, smiling staff but not cozy because it’s built in a massive structure (doesn’t fit Bali style).

Kayun Hostel (***). Good rooms with bed bunks perfect for groups of friends. The location is in Kuta but a little bit more far from the main party.

Balangan: Flower Bud bungalows (****). The bungalows all in wood are really cozy. The open toilet and shower are unforgettable. The location is 5 minutes from Balangan beach and the gardens and the pool make it very tranquil. The breakfast is large but would be amazing with more options. It’s an accommodation with a lot of potential but still far from the excellence.

Nusa Lembongan: Radya Homestay (***).  Well equipped rooms in a calm street. Everything is good except the Wifi that doesn’t seem to run all over the island.

Gili Trawangan

Big Bubble Dive (***). Standard cottages near the beach and one of the party areas in Gili Trawangan. The terrace outside is nice.

Rose Homestay (****). Anto the owner takes care himself of everything. The rooms are bright, the price is okay and he prepares the breakfast with care. We changed from another home stay to stay at this one.

Drupadi (***). The cottages in wood are cozy and the service is good. The toilet is small but enough and the only bad thing from then is that a family of cats invaded the accommodation and were all around.

Dream divers resort(***). Despite the fact that they offer rooms to anyone, they are focused on diving courses so it makes it a bit messy. The breakfast is included but they send the guests to the home stay next plot.

Kidi’s Family Bungalow (*). Extremely poor managed. We had a booking and when we arrived all was full, they didn’t took care of the reservation and we had to find another place.

Ruteng: Hotel Rima (**). It’s very old and run-down but enough for a sleep over.

Chez Felix (***). Budget home stay owned by a Flores family. 

Komodo and Rinca: Boat night with Komodo Diving Paradise  (***) It cannot be considered an accommodation because we slept in the deck and only with a thin matrass but it’s all about the adventure at the sea. Food included and really recommended experience.
