Great place to stay in Riung. The breakfast contains coffee or Tea, Omeletts, bread with jam and fruits. The lodges/bungalows are very spacious, especially the bathroom. The bungalows contain a Fan, AC and a mosquito net. The AC works perfectly. Tam, the owner, is very friendly and supportive. Throughout our stay we were repeatedly asked if we would some coffee...

Though Riung does not have a lot of options, this is your best bet in town. There are 7 bungalows set around a big inner garden. Each has its own private porch. Our room was clean, had A/C, a comfy bed, a big and clean bathroom. All that we could wish for during our 3 nights here. The front wall...

Very clean rooms with big beds, big bathrooms, good mosquito nets and awesome terraces to chill looking towards a green garden. It has actually been renovated coule of years ago, hence...

The hotel room was very clean and neat. The staffs were nice and the owner is very friendly. In the morning, they offered to serve us earlier breakfast so we could eat them before we went to the islands. The price was extremely worth it. Thank you mr. Rustam!

Great hippy bungalows to come back to after a whole day of events. Not easy to reach but definitely worth it. Nice breakfast as well. Lovely setting with all the bungalows surrounding a garden. Tam (owner) is really friendly and helpful. Even with a blackout, he goes out personally to each bungalow and makes sure everyone is alright. Definitely worth...

I stayed 2 nights, and count Nirvana as one of the better budget hotels in Flores. The room was clean, the toilet was acceptable, and the staff was always smiling. They serve you breakfast on the patio, and you eat while enjoying the garden (needs a bit of work though).

Riung is a mission to get to, really out the way, public buses are particularly excruciating. But it's all worth it when u get here! 8 lovely bungalows spread around a beautiful garden, super quiet and ideal for couples. Bungalows are surprisingly modern and fresh with funky artwork around, have AC and really good beds with mozzie nets. No hot...

Nirwana bungalows are situated around a large garden. They are all newly redecorated and very comfortable. The sheets are crisp and clean, there is air conditioning and a private bathroom to each bungalow (no warm water). There are fun murals in every house creating a pleasant hippy atmosphere. A good breakfast is served on your bungalow's terrace. Host Tam and...

The bungalows are clean and quiet. Tam, the owner, makes you feel at home. Air conditioning in the rooms and wifi in the social area. Very good breakfast as well. If I compare Nirvana with the rest of the places I slept in Flores, Nirvana gets 5 stars.
