wakatobi cheap accommodation

Just wondering if anyone can give me some recent info on what kind of accommodation there is on the islands, other than all the dive resorts. My partner and I are heading over in a few days and are backpacking so looking for cheaper places to stay (homestays etc). I can't seem to find any info on guesthouses or price range of anywhere other than the big resorts. Im sure I've heard there's other places to stay. Also which island recommendations? how much range there is on each island.

Any piece of info large or small would be helpful.

In Wakatobi there are many options for accommodations, in Wangi-Wangi just look around in the central of city. There are some options of hotel/hostel, if you looking for resort there is Patuno Resort but its bit far from everywhere.

In Hoga Island there are some bungalows and homestays available (check out Hoga Island Dive Resort or Hoga Dive Resort). This place is really good for diving where you can arrange diving trip through your hotel.

In Tomia also some small hotel available, I will recommend Penginapan Terapung near the Waha Harbour, its small but clean. This island has many dive spots, old fort that have beautiful scenic.

Hope its help.
