Where to Stay?

Accomodation on West Timor can be limited, especially on the country side. Quite often, the most beautiful parts of the island are also the ones with the least infrastructure. The main bases for many great trips are:

  • Kupang
  • Soe
  • Kefamenanu
  • Atambua

If you only want to stay in hotels, your options are limited to those places.

Also, if you consider camping, please do not camp at the beaches around on the west coast, as there are crocodiles.




The only hostel on Kupang. The hostel itself and the owner have quite some history and character. It has a very laid back atmosphere, nice view and is ideal for solo travelers looking for conversation. It has a vast variety of rooms ranging from dorm beds, to AC+Hotshower private rooms. Theres also a small breakfast included. If you have a hard time planning your trip to Timor, even with the aid of this website, you could just head there and ask the owner for advice. He has a wealth of knowledge about Timor and the NTT-Region. Most likely he can even help you organize tours to tribal villages and rent scooters.

Distance to Airport: 20 minutes
