Value for money, clean, near many must to visit places
The imam bonjol hostel is good value for your money, only 100K for a private room. It does have a western toilet and not a squad toilet like other reviews suggested. The only thing is: THIS IS NOT A BACKPACKERS PLACE. Only stay here for the bed, not to meet people or other backpacker related business.
Fair host but not a backpackers hostel. Provide free water. Close to train station and next to a snack shop. Wifi was ok. Small locker outside room. However, All locals- be prepared to be gawped at constantly- not relaxing. Ok wifi. Staff don't speak good English and couldn't give any tourist information eg things to do and transport links, but we're quite nice. No toilet paper. Squat toilets. Advertised hot showers big not hot after 8am- designed for locals who get up early. Could be cleaner.

nice hostel in semarang. having just driven from jakarta, i arrived a little later than expected (at 5am) but the staff there bent over backwards to help and were extremely friendly in the process.
