Recommended by our driver and he's correct. Nice clean hotel. Central position. Can easily walk to Leslie and PC Corner. Waingapu is hot anytime of the day and night. Make sure you get the aircon room. Our Room was spacious and new. However the foam mattress a little uncomfy but we slept ok. Airport and harbour was close. They are...

If Evlin Hotel would have hot water it would be a great hotel. It was the most clean hotel I stayed in Sumba. It is well maintained and the prices are OK. No dirty walls, no spider webs, etc. It's really clean. They even have a shower. Instead of a bucket. If only they had hot water...

I've been to this hotel twice and enjoyed all my stayed there. It is considered OK facility. Nothing specific to highlight other than friendly staff to welcome us. 1st stayed there, we only get basic breakfast (bread, egg, tea/water), now they improved by providing some rice dishes too. Well done for this. The room is clean, and their new wing...

Elvin Hotel was just an OK place. The rooms are air-conditioned which is a big plus and most of the time it was quiet. Service is probably the weakest area for this hotel. My clean towels disappeared from my room while I was out during the afternoon and it was difficult to get new towels. After about 30 to 45...

The Elvin is currently the best choice in terms of value for money in Waingapu. Rooms are located well back from the busy main road that offers various shops and simple restaurants, as well as a bakery (very rare in Sumba island). My room on the second floor was spacious, airconditioned and clean, and the bathroom remarkably free of mozzies....

My friends and I tried three different hotels in Waingapu before settling on the Elvin Hotel. I'm really glad we did. The rooms were really large and all the closets had locks and keys, which made me feel safe. They also had a cold shower and working toilet (which was not my experience in other places in Sumba). The A/C...

The Elvin is probably the best hotel (not resort) in Sumba and has clean rooms, a/c, comfortable beds and a new wing under construction. No hot water. The staff are a bit clueless and don't always get the reservations straight. Breakfast is a boiled egg, tea and bizarre white bread. No restaurant, no pool.
