    This was the first stop in our journey across Indonesia and it couldn't have been a better one! Everything was convenient, clean, comfortable and rooms had air conditioning. Best of all, our host, Ardy, wad incredibly friendly and helpful with tonns of tips and suggestions for Jakarta and other destinations we had planned. Highly recommended to everyone! We got everything we wished for and so much more!!

    As soon as I was checking in and needed help with all the different questions I had for my first unplanned leg of my Indonesian trip, Ardy (the hostel owner) was always available, willing to help, and going well and beyond what I expected was possible. The hostel is conveniently located, close to a great market and street food (which we explored with Ardy thanks to a very delicious food tour he set up with other guests). My room had AC that was a relief to go back to after a long, hot day!

    Overall very good hostel. It’s very close to the bus station „Glodok“ and has 24/7 reception. The room is small but due to powerful AirCon and an external air ventilation that seems to bring in fresh air, no problem. Toilets/showers are a bit old but in no way dirty. They have a fully equipped kitchen. Laundry service worked well - full bag of clothes for 50k IDR within 24 hours is a fair deal.

    Kind and helpful staff. Amenities were great, I stayed in the 4 bed deluxe which was certainly worth the extra 20,000 rupiah per night. Great stay overall (delicious breakfast too!)

    This hostel is close to Batavia (old town) in the heart of Jakarta. It's in Chinatown and there is plenty of great places to eat at like Gang Mangga. The staff are excellent, especially at the Little Dragon Kitchen and Bar. The place is very clean and my dormitory room (six bed) had two A/C and strong security lockers. Special mention to Kenny, Adid and Figo at the Little Dragon - you guys rock. New Zealander (avid traveller).

    Good clean hostel. Good for the amount of money paid. The staff were very friendly and tried their best to accomodate for patrons, which was so lovely! Some facilities weren’t available like the daily breakfast or the airport transfer service. Nice clean space!

    The people who work at this hostel really make it-they are lovely and happy to help with anything! I booked a private room and it was pretty basic, no window, but very good value for money. The only real downside were the cockroaches (I saw quite a few in my 2 day stay) which made their way into my en-suite and I spent a while trying to get one of them out because it was scuttling around and making lots of noise. I would say there needs to be some kind of provision for getting rid of them (I know it’s hard

    Really nice hostel, when we arrived we were worried they weren’t open but rang a door bell and they came out to let us in. Room was really clean and such a comfy bed, great air conditioning. The kitchen, lounge and smoking area all really nice and the toilet and shower were so clean and really nice! Very well organised place would definitely stay again.

    I have to be fair in judgment and not giving the minimum score to each of the criteria but how can I be happy since I’m still scratching my whole hands and legs from the bed bugs bites me while staying there. I wish your review system has a seperate criteria asking How did you sleep well! The staff was nice, the location was good, and it was clean. The bedrooms do not have wifi which is a big drawback. They need to seriously do something for the bedbugs though they helped me change the bed
