Clean room, good air conditioner (essential in Waingapu). Central in the city. Some of the rooms can be quite noisy, but most are good. This is one of the better hotels in Waingapu. I've stayed here on three trips so far and likely will again

Stayed here for 6 nights for a business trip and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff was extremely attentive and supportive. Also, the food was better than all the various restaurants that we tried. Will definitely use this hotel in the future in Waingapu.

​Awesome! Clean clean clean! Although the hotel is 5 years old, it looks like new and it is best option in town. Room was spacious, bathroom clean with hot water shower, and there was also a private sitting area in front of our room. Breakfast was on basic side but included in price so no complaint. All the staff is very friendly and helpful.

I was staying last week and for a budget hotel (price is quite low), the facility was good and satisfying. Room space was okay. But most importantly, room was very clean. Friendly staff and location is very near from the airport. One thing, looked liked my room was near the kitchen area, so when they were cooking something (especially breakfast) the smell was completely entering my room. Fortunately a good smell (for me), but I am sure for some people it'll be strong smell and annoying.

It's beyond my expectation I can find clean nice hotel like this in small area like Sumba. The room are clean , neat and tidy and big enough (unlike budget hotel) They Also have wifi with different router in lobby area, room area. Sometime the internet is very slow when many people use it but it's still good for this small island (before I came to this island I thought I won't get any signal for internet ) Breakfast option are bread toast / fried rice / nasi campur
