Cheap guesthouses on Gili Air

Dear readers! Remember that the accommodation price when booking depends on seasonal fluctuations, one-time discounts, promotions, hot offers, your personal discounts in booking systems, and many other factors. The prices in the article are indicated for the autumn of 2019.
If you are planning to look for accommodation in a guesthouse for an extended period, it makes sense to book a room for a couple of days, live there, feel all the pros and cons, and ask the owner for a discount for long-term stay. If you are talking directly to the guesthouse owner, there is a chance to get a discount in the range of 10-40% of the amount calculated by simply multiplying the cost of daily accommodation by 30.
If you have received any new information about the guesthouses mentioned in this material or any other good offers, please share your discoveries.
++ Separate room, shower, toilet, large bed at the price of a hostel. Pleasant house. Excellent location in the middle of the island. 10-15 minutes in any direction to the beach. Very pleasant and responsive owner of the house. Good location - in the center of the island.
--- There may be insects in the room, as everywhere in Indonesia. The owner kindly offers insect spray. The internet (Wi-Fi) doesn't catch at all in room number 8, but you can catch it near other rooms.
++ Cool bungalows, clean, delicious breakfasts, the guys are just awesome 👍 No hot water, no air conditioning, but there's a fan with a remote, very convenient. The presence of a working air conditioner (although it worked like a washing machine - noisy).
--- There was no cleaning for three days, not even the table after breakfast was cleaned, not to mention the ashtray. There is not much furniture in the room, no hot water, poor Wi-Fi, and a modest hotel territory.
++ The cottage is spacious, clean, the bed is comfortable, and the owner is a wonderful person. Free coffee and tea are available at any time. The staff is superb! They made excellent smoothies for us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, especially during the mango season. Excellent location for dining and snorkeling. The roads from the cottage go in all directions on the island. The water is only cold, but it was more of a plus. Good Wi-Fi. Roosters crow in the mornings, but that's all over the island. The territory is small but green.
--- The cottages are by the road, and due to the low fence, everyone can peek in, and there is no privacy. The territory is not closed, and anyone can enter. Someone was sitting on our friend's veranda at night. There is no sound insulation; you can hear all the neighbors. A crowd of young people constantly gathers at the reception and disturbs the rest. We had to make a remark. Only one young man from the staff behaved friendly; the others were very unhappy when we asked for something. The reception staff are constantly sleeping behind the counter, and it's very unpleasant to wake them up and ask for any service. We ordered breakfast, and it was ready only after an hour, and we had very limited free time. It's a 20-minute walk to a proper beach.
++ Excellent location - easy walking distance to the southern pier, the eastern beach with good snorkeling, and sunset cafes with live music. There are many cafes for every taste and budget nearby, a large inexpensive local store with plenty of vegetables and fruits. A green and pleasant courtyard, hospitable hosts, a cozy small room with a romantic light canopy over the bed (instead of a regular mosquito net), and a choice of breakfast - omelet or pancake + coffee and fresh juice. The mosque is almost inaudible.
--- The bed is squeaky ;)
++ Despite a small hitch during check-in, the stay exceeded all expectations. Everything was very enjoyable - breakfasts, cleanliness, well-kept grounds, and the hosts are the kindest and most responsive people. They are always ready to help, always smiling and joking.
--- It's a bit dark in the bedroom.
++ Clean rooms. Delicious breakfast. Friendly staff that helps with advice.
  • Clean, quiet, calm. Bicycle rental on the hotel grounds. Decent breakfasts. New beds.
  • The road to the hotel is very dusty (legs covered in dust). The staircase in the family room is steep.
