    Comfortable and enjoyable stay ”

    Clean, quiet, well maintained

    I had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Mbah Mek Trawangan Homestay. Mbah Mek is run by a friendly couple who take the comfort of their guests seriously. The homestay is new, clean, and well maintained. It is far enough away from the noise of the town center but only a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and boat dock. Breakfast is creatively prepared, different every day, and tasty! The little extras like bicycles, lots of good television channels, a quiet air conditioner, and friendly owners make Mbah Mek Homestay easy to recommend.

    Stay here!! We didn't want to leave....”

    Mbah Mek (Grandpa Mek) is an absolute legend. The guy is educated, knowledgable sweet and funny and we adored him. The breakfasts are wonderful and the AC is powerful.

    We cannot recommend this place enough. Having stayed at 4 various homestays on the island, we have a fairly good grasp of what is on offer and Mbah Mek outshone them all by quite a way. Breakfast is served at whatever time you like on your terrace and was always amazing - Different every day (from fluffy, airy home cooked waffles to a tasty omelette with vegetables and toast) and prepared to a high standard, along with fruit and tea and coffee. The room itself was spacious and cool (the AC was the strongest we had ever felt.) with a big bed and it was a lovely surprise to find that our sheets/towels were changed and room cleaned every other day (rare in a homestay). We stayed here for a week in the end and only left because we weren't clever enough to book up while he was still available and he had another booking. The room also had a TV with loads of English speaking channels (again very rare). But the best thing by far is the man himself.....the guy is humble and loves nothing more than to tend to his beautiful garden all day but if you need or want to know anything then he is there. He has a background in 5 star hospitality and it more than shows in the standards of service that you receive from what is essentially a beautiful if modest homestay. Stay here and you will not be disappointed! Mbah Mek, if you'e reading this ....'Hello and thanks again. I hope the kittens are doing OK' :)

    Mbah Mek was the main reason we liked Gili T”

    Mbah Mek is a legend. Nicest dude ever and super interesting once you get talking to him. Location was great. No frills hotel for the budget traveller.

    We weren't that impressed with Gili T as it was just too busy and people weren't as friendly as other parts of Indonesia. The main reason we both enjoyed Gili T at all was staying with Mbah Mek. The rooms are basic and a bit beaten up but for the price, you can't complain. The man himself is super nice and the more we talked to him, the more we realised he had quite the story to tell. Mbah Mek was the main reason we left Gili T with a smile on our face. Come here with an open mind and engage Mbah Mek in some conversation, he is a bloody legend!!!

    exceeded expectations”

    On our arrival to Mbah Mek we were greeted by the super friendly "grandpa Mek" which made us feel right at home. Our room was beautiful and had a good level of privacy. Breakfast was delicious and was delivered to our outdoor patio each morning, which we enjoyed in a serene environment serenaded by roosters. The location was great for us, a short walk from the beach and nightlife, something you definitly want if staying on Gili T. We felt very safe walking around and found a nice bike rental just up the road. The bathroom was clean though the water was cold, however this is quite normal for an affordable homestay. Overall it is exceptional value for money and we highly reccommend staying here. Angela & Joe

    Kampung feeling if you love nature”

    1) Location 10mins from pier. 2) Owner really takes pride in maintaining the cleaniness of rooms. 3) Owner is friendly and we felt welcome and peaceful.

    From pier look for Jalan Gurita. You have to walk pass 7 lanes of fishes name. Homestay located along Jalan Ikan Krapu just after a shop with a lighted signage Arman Shop. During rainy days the gili roads will be muddy so it is best to wear slippers from the pier. Mbah mek homestay has a garden. The room is very clean but shower water flow not strong. Bicycles are provided for free. Breakfast is served according to yr own preferred time. So overall experience is excellent for the price we pay and compare the location and cleaniness of homestay.

    More than just a homestay”

    1) The owner 2) The hospitality 3) The extra mile

    The reason I score everything 5 for Mbah Mek is because the stay exceeds my expectation. It is silly to compare a homestay to a hotel. The disappointment sinks in when the reality does not live up to the expectation. If you are looking for an experiential holiday, it is not hard to understand why the majority raves about how great the place is. I am not going to write a long story about my 3 night stay nor 'the best 3 things about this hotel' etc. Many reviews have already mentioned that. I really look forward to a longer stay in Mbah Mek next time.

    I booked this room with a really cheap price from agoda, so I'm really satisfied with the room I got with that price. Comfortable bed, hot shower, cable tv (indovision), air conditioner, yummy breakfast + 2 water bottles everyday, dedicated owner. Towels were not provided in room at first but then i asked to Mbah Mek and he gave it right away. The only cons was the distance to the beach, a bit far, but overall I had a pleasant stay in Mbah Mek. Should be more than one star hotel!

    Perfect stay for the buget traveller”

    Really clean room with comfortable bed and shower. Owner/staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Location is just a small walk from the main road. Not for the traveller who has high resort like expectations, but perfect if you just want a nice place to sleep, shower and eat breakfast. Would recommend to everyone. Mbah Mek is furthermore a really friendly man who wants nothing but to help his guest. His wife makes the best breakfasts everyday of your stay. You are staying in an Indonesian neighbourhood though and not some secluded resort, if you want the latter and think loose running chickens, dirt roads et cetera are filthy this is not the place for you.

    Mr Mbah Mek and his wife are a wonderful couple. very accommodating and friendly. Our room was lovely, a little dark which is nice when you want to sleep in, but not so helpful when the electricity goes out, which I hear is not often. Breakfast was okay, the coffee was great! And overall the hotel was great value if you are only looking for a place to sleep. There is not much of a common area to hang out in if you are planning on just lounging around all day. Other than that, Mr Mhab Mek has a very nice place :)

He always tried to help us when we needed his help. One problem was that we could hear the noise from outside. Other than this, everything was okay!

    The homestay is a short walk from the main strip and harbour of Gili T. As a result it doesn't have the sounds of the tourists / late night party goers. However it is surrounded by locals and the noises of animals and the call to prayer. We enjoyed it's location. The family are friendly and make tasty breakfast. The room is clean and basic. But with nice touches such as the motion sensor bathroom light. The WiFi is fast and the TV has a larger than average selection of western TV channels. All in all, a lovely stay

    The room and washroom was very clean and organized. Everything was thought out well. My friend and I both had two outlets on each side of the bed. The bathroom light was automated. Mek had bikes ready for us at our arrival, just as we requested. There are many bike renting shops nearby, but it saved us a couple minutes. He also booked our snorkelling trip for us (100,000 IDR) and was very helpful. Breakfast was ready exactly at the time we requested, and there was a different meal every day! It was also only a 10-minute walk to the beach. Highly recommended :)

    Great stay”

    Great breakfast, great service, great room.

    Our stay here was great. It's a little far from then beach but you get the real feel of gili local life here. The room was great, AC worked well great English TV channels different tasty breakfast every morning with new water bottles and coffee and fruit. The owners are ahh a nice couple and very kind and helpful. For the price it is fantastic! Can't complain. The power went out once while we were here but that is normal for the island and the owners gave us lights and were very nice making sure we were ok. Highly reccomend this place.

    Lovely stay”

    Lovely little home stay, rooms are clean and great value for money for Gili considering they are modern, with air con and a TV. The owner wasn't sure what to cook for breakfast when I advised I followed a vegan diet (strict vegetarian) he obviously went away and thought about it and served me two delicious vegan friendly meals both mornings. I would return here great place to stay.
