ACCOMMODATION
There are some good choices among the
places to stay in Dili. But many of the sleeping options subsist on the long-term residence of expats assigned to East Timor and,
thus, haven’t felt competitive pressure to
offer decent products.
Elsewhere, Baucau and Com have some
good choices, as do Maubisse, Viqueque and
Lospalos and a handful of smaller places.
But don’t expect anything swank – if you get
a clean room with good mosquito nets or
screens and a few hours of electricity for reading and a fan, you’re doing well.
Large swathes of East Timor have no organised accommodation and you’ll be on your
own finding a room in a home or a place
to camp.

 You’ll find
the true, insider lowdown on the best places
to stay. Reviews are thorough and independent. Best of all, you can book online.

Camping
East Timor has no campsites but there’s really no limit on where you can pitch a tent. In
places like Tutuala Beach, the central mountains and all across the south coast, your only
accommodation will be a tent. Although the
weather is mild except high up in the mountains, you’ll want a tent protecting you from
insects and sudden rain.
You should bring your own gear if you
plan to travel off the beaten path, although
Mega Tours (%723 5199; )
in Dili may be able to rent you gear for US$5
a day.

Homestays
Homestays happen on an ad hoc basis; you
may find yourself someplace where the hospitality of others will be your only accommodation. Remember, people have little, so offer to
help out in any way you can. The Timorese are
really a gracious lot, so someone will usually
come forward with an offer if you’re in a rural
village and it’s getting dark. The local police
station is always a good source of leads.

Hostels
Dili has East Timor Backpackers ( p45 ),
which is the nation’s one hostel – and a very
good one it is too.
Hotels
Dili has some very good accommodation
options at every price point, from budget
hotels (rooms for as little as US$10),
through midrange (US$25 to US$50) to
top end (often US$100 or more). But it also
has many dumps. You won’t feel like your
US$50 is going far when you find yourself
