Hotel Ikhlas

Pleasant backpacker digs

More on Ende

This backpacker standard doesn’t look like much from the outside, but it’s actually a rather large property, with room choices ranging from grungy (and cheap) singles to very nice air-con rooms with garden-facing patios.

Travelfish says:

The better rooms are very clean for a backpacker place, though the cheap, cold water but fan-cooled rooms are more ordinary -- some more than others, so ask to look around. For often overpriced Flores, these are great rates. The Hotel Ikhlas also has a common area with a TV and offers quite a few useful travel agent services for both sea and overland travel, making it a good choice for solo travellers hoping to meet others. There’s also a good map on the wall and an information board with the latest ferry timetables and so on. We didn’t try the restaurant, but we heard it’s serviceable. There’s WiFi on offer -- if that’s not fast enough, nip across the street, where an internet cafe-cum-laundromat hosts the best connection in Ende. It’s within walking distance of the airport but a 30-minute walk (or five-minute ojek ride) from the western port area. There are restaurants within easy walking distance if you don’t feel like hiking over to the port. Prices go down in the slow off season. If you’re a backpacker, look no further. Recommended.
