Lonely Planet review

Ralf, a naturalised citizen, has been knocking around PNG for some time; first as a missionary and more recently as an artefacts dealer. He still provides basic accommodation in two very simple rooms in a house overflowing with dogs, storage boxes, carvings, books, WWII memorabilia and ethnic art. Ralf doesn't get many hard-core backpackers anymore, a far cry from its heyday in the eighties when the guesthouse opened.

Ralf's place is on a 400m ridge overlooking the coast at Tower (there's a radio mast), 15km inland from Wewak. Take PMV 2-3 to Tower from the main market.
