Staff ramah & baik. Penginapan memelihara kucing & dibiarkan berkeliaran dgn bebas, banyak bulu kucing di lantai akan terlihat jelas bila menggunakan kaos kaki hitam. Kasat mata bisa dilihat di bagian depan penginapan dekat penyimpanan alas kaki. Tidak ada lift. Adanya tangga melingkar.Shower air panasnya kurang berjalan dgn baik, suhu tidak panas. Lokasi dekat dgn Ciputra Mall & minimarket. Hari 1 menggunakan selimut badan gatal-gatal, lalu pesan selimut baru 2 & ganti seprei ;sarung bantal.

Loved our one night stay at Backpacker! Mba Oni and all the staff were super friendly, warm and helpful. Mba Oni helped arrange transport on for us (to Jepara), getting us a good deal and giving helpful recommendations. Had a lot of fun bantering, playing games and hanging with the staff. The rooms were good sized, private capsule beds and AC was epic! Super cool compared to the heat of Semarang. Very good value for money - you’ll feel welcome here in this authentic and warm hostel.

Stayed there for one night, WiFi didn’t work but hot showers did. Unfortunately, the staff wasn’t helpful at all. They barely responded to text messages, told me via email they may help me when I’m at the hostel but later, no one was there able to speak English. Also, late/no responses before and during my stay prevented me from taking the trip as I intended. Probably worst staff experience I had during my travels. Facilities and the rest seem okay though
