The hostel is housed in a very unique building that rose up out of the ashes after the 1999 vote for independence, when Indonesian military violence destroyed most of the country's infrastructure. Used to house staff of the UN Transitional Administration prior to the nations independence in 2002, and remnants of this era can still be seen around the hostel and neighbourhood with fortified mesh security screens and walls topped with razor wire.
This is a great place to meet other travelers and hear about their adventures in a country where it rare to meet many other tourists.Guest access
