The hostel has a good vibe. They have variety of recreational activities: tv set, billiards table, xbox, table tennis, and roof deck for chill out. I love the dim light and pipe-in music, very relaxing. They also have a friendship wall so you could post your articles for souvenir to the hostel. Both the owners and receptionists are very friendly... More

... is what I initially thought. Let's face it: dormitories are generally the last place you want to stay. However, this place has its *stuff* together! They've really thought of everything. The dorm rooms with pods are excellent -- each pod has its own international electrical outlet, reading light, cubby space, curtain, and locker (they even provide a key). They... More

It was my first time to stay in a hostel and I had a great time. The lobby is very cozy, the bathrooms equipt with hot/cold shower, and the beds...the capsule beds...totally loved it. But its not the amenities of the hostel that made it great. I think the best asset they have are the staff. They are very warm... More

Awesome hostels. Lots of facilities in this hostel. You should check out the rooftop, it's amazing. The owner of the hostel, Ning is very friendly and helpful. She does not treat us like her customers, but as a friend as well.

Spent 5 days in Six Degrees while visiting friends in Jakarta. Hostel vibe is alive and well here. Common area is really nice and friendly, setup is good so you can talk to many people; top marks. Stayed in a 4 room dorm, bed was exceptionally good with the bunk bed frame built into the wall so you don't feel... More

We stayed at Six Degrees at the start and end of our month travelling as our flights were to Jakarta. Despite spending most of our time in Jakarta at the hostel either planning at the start or recovering at the end, we had nothing but fun. The 10 bed mixed dorm was fine, towels are provided and there are plenty... More

My sister and I from Singapore enjoyed our stay there. We wouldn't want to spend on luxury hotels at Jakarta. People at Six Degrees are so friendly. Check out the rooftop!!!

The usual budget accomodation in Jakarta a few years back were Homestays and Losmens. Now, thanks to Six Degrees that jakarta is starting to explore the hostel market. They set the bars high for other upcoming hostels. And it's a good thing. The Hostel is situated along Jalan Cikini , one of the oldest streets in Jakarta. Trivia: The first... More

It's good to hear from someone who has been to Jakarta in the past and knows what backpackers were faced with a few years ago. It's that negative budget travel experience people used to have that drove us to create Six Degrees. We wanted people to see the side of Jakarta that we had grown to love - it's not... More

We arrived really late from the airport (after twelve) and they were really helpful and stayed up for us. Nice clean shower rooms with hot water. Dorm rooms are well designed, seperated into sections (we stayed in the 10 person one) and I still slept well! Good food and drink available all day long and a basic breakfast of tea,... More

Very pleasant place with simple rooms. Staff was very nice and gave us helpful information about Jakarta. We could use laptop/internet in lobby, and breakfast was included in price. Shared bathroom with warm water (which is not so common in Indonesia :), clean beds.

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review of Six Degrees. We're glad you enjoyed the hot showers! Yes, rooms are simple. But for us the whole point of a hostel is the social experience. Rooms are a place for sleeping (clean, air-conditioned, quiet, comfortable and simple). Thanks again! See you soon in Jakarta. More
