Rima Hotel

Backpacker value

What we say: 3 stars

Slightly closer to town than MBC, Rima Hotel is the best backpacker value in Ruteng and if you're travelling on a tight budget, look no further. Rima is a 10-minute walk from the centre of town, but that's really the only downside to this solid backpacker pad. Much of the hotel is wooden and the cheapest rooms are upstairs. They're functional affairs, with aged mattresses and enough room to swing a pack, but that is about it. Some rooms are considerably nicer than others, so look around first. It also may pay to inspect your blankets and bedding for cleanliness. Bathrooms are pretty dire but the showers do get hot, though only briefly -- and the running water sometimes shorts out without warning. There are a couple of common areas, a simple notice board and a few lounges that were obviously swiped from a Thunderbirds set. Rounding out the deal, a couple of upper floor verandas overlook the main road. We liked this place, and while we wouldn't want to live here, it was fine for a night. Staff are friendly and speak some English, but are not well-versed when it comes to local guides and attractions. They can book minibus tickets for you to other destinations. Motorcycle hire is on offer, while ojeks to most attractions can be hailed from outside during the daytime. There's also WiFi that only works reliably in the upstairs common area. Breakfast of a pancake and vile coffee is included.
