I am looking forward to come back to this hostel when the construction next door is done. Spotless clean rooms, common area and bathrooms, very friendly staff, good location in the city, but the construction next door never seems to stop.... Reall noisy


Only there for about 6 house as has a very quick turn around but everything went smoothly and the security guard let us in late at night! Close to train station and Central Jakarta. The beds weve a little damp and the blind in our room was broken so if we were to have wanted to sleep in it may have been weird as people could have seen us. Breakfast is also just toast but you can have as much as you want! Very nice decore, wouldn't be against staying there again!


Unfortunately my husband was ill during our stay so we were mostly in our room. The staff were excellent and helped us with hospitals etc. The only negatives were the building site opposite which worked 24 hours a day , definitely earplugs are needed. breakfast disappointing (we were up not that early but only toast available). Overall nice place


Really nice and kind staff, always ready to help you. You can't buy tickets there but the staff will help you to find them. Really clean rooms and showers. Hot water and the breakfast is ok if you stay for 1-2 nights I will recommend this place cause is good located and the staff will help you with information.


Good location 50 meters from Harmoni busway station. In jakarta it is a must. 15 min from Monas. 15 min from kota tua. 10 min by taxi from gambir main train station of jakarta. The staff is really nice. Kind and réally helpfull. I could let my luggage there while i went to the east of Java island for more than 3 weeks. Its clean in all parts. Breakfast is simple but good. well i will definitely come back when i am in jakarta.

Location is good. near the Harmony Busway. But there are so many mosquitoes in hostel. I didn't get a wink of sleep that night.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, before our guest check-in we usually spray mosquito, and in case there are still mosquito we have mosquito net ready for 24-hour. Please request mosquito net from our 24-hour security. Thanks for staying, please come again, it improved everyday.


Lovely welcoming people, clean and well looked after little haven from the hectic city


Came across some comments about mosquitoes in the hostel, it's not just a problem in the hostel, it's a problem throughout Jakarta. Being mentally and physically prepared is the best prevention. Apart from this issue, everything else are up to scratch.


I'm sorry that I don't know names of the staff, but YOU're very cool! You always help us for all questions! Thank you so much!


Very nice hostel, bed was very good. A lot of musquitos but they had an electric repellent and a very easy to set up musquito net! Nice atmosphere in the common area and the staff was extremely helpfull! We would also recommend the airport pickup, they were on time and didn't mind we could pay them the day after because we forgot to change money at the airport.


This hostel is very close to public transportation, and very close to the monument. The staff are friendly and definitely seem to be making an effort to be professional, polite, and helpful. It doesn't really have a "backpacker" vibe and there's not much socializing going on. A nice place for couples or small groups. It seems like it would be a pleasant place to crash for an extended period of time-nice kitchen.


Good location, but hard to find. Most taxi driver don't know the place. Be aware the central square in the north (at batavia cafe) is 45 min walk! Breakfast is simple but sufficient for what you can expect for this price. Big plus are the cooking facilities


Nice place to stay for couples or those travelling as a pair. Although a good dinning area, it's not ideal if you are a solo traveller looking for others to travel with. However the place is very clean, well located with the monument being a 20-25 minute walk away. The staff are helpful especially the night porter. I'd have no problem recommending this place to stay.
