We have 4 places to stay in and around Waikabubak.
Catering more for the local businessmen than rare tourists, the small and slightly depressing collection of hotels in Waikabubak are spread around town, with no real central focus — but it’s a compact town and everything is within a kilometre. Rooms are generally basic and there is definite room for improvement. Ask to see a couple before you commit — we were shown rooms that ranged from awful and grimy to not-bad-for-a-night in the same hotel for the same price. None of the rooms we saw provided mosquito nets and we found a few mozzies about — bring your own net. Not a lot of English is spoken, all the same, folk are friendly and they’ll usually find a staff member who can help. We were amused that one hotel’s price list quoted an additional charge for “extra bad”.
