Very friendly and hopeful staff and rooms were very clean. Lobby was very comfortable and excellent they even allowed cooking in their very clean kitchen. I particularly enjoyed sitting at the lobby buying my packed indonesian lunch;-) I must say to come to this place and you will never regret. I will come there again if I am in Jakarta ;-)

Great hostel but kind of empty when we came! It's a good price and taxi To the city is really cheap! Jakarta is a city i wouldnt recomend though but if you have To go there, chose kamarkamar!


The hostel itself was nice. There was a great kitchen, complementary bottled water, air conditioning, and clean, comfortable rooms. The staff were very sweet but spoke little English. The location is the only reason I would not recommend staying here. It was so far south, and the Jakarta traffic was so bad that it took atleast an hour and a half by taxi to get to the city center, a drive that should take 20 minutes.


The staff made the place, thanks so much for being so helpful guys!

This place was super clean, comfortable and pleasant. It was a great place to spend my last night before a long place. Wifi was available even in the rooms. Not so sure about the location - no street food nearby.. pretty much everything seems to need a taxi or ojek to get to. Also, when I arrived at Blok M (following the directions supplied on hostelworld), not a single cab driver knew where the hostel was. Frustrating when you're alone at 9pm after sitting on planes for hours.


There was a baby being raised there who screamed sometimes. The place is about an hour or more away from tourist sites, though its close enough to expat and party districts. They took an extra day doing my laundry than they told me.


Had such a lovely time here. I did lots of cooking with Erich (the owner) and he also took me on a night out. We went and sung karaoke (I tried to sing) Erich is probably one of the nicest guys I have met and nothing was to much trouble from helping me with booking my flights to Bali and ordering food in Indonesia. :) Thanks for a wonderful time. Joanne!!


One of the cleanest hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff are on point, perfect english, good directions, and have all the information you need to get around the city. South Jakarta being the happening area perfect for the young youth.


Only spent one night at the hostel, but really enjoyed my stay. Erich, the hotel manager, was so helpful and friendly giving me good advice on where to go and booked a bus for me. Loved being able to make my own breakfast, made enough for Erich too and we enjoyed breakfast together. Really made me feel welcome having just arrived in Indonesia, especially in the bustling capital.
