By Moritz is close to the trainstation and offered a very basic room with worn-out bathroom in lower price range. Staff was very friendly and were jamming in the nice chillout area. Biggest value of the hostel is their organized tours towords different destinations in Java starting from 1 day trips up to 14 days. We did a 7 day... More

I really liked to stay at that place, everything you need as a backpacker is there, if not the friendly stuff will help out. And you can get a lot of helpful information about Bandung and Java itself from the stuff. I do also warmly recommand the local guide Sandy, you can ask about him at the reception. I really... More

Our experience at this hostel is generally good. We paid around USD11 per night for a room with an attached bathroom (no aircon just fan). There's free Wifi in the common area on the ground floor and breakfast is included from 6 to 10am. There's no need for air con because Bandung is a city with pretty cool nighttime temperatures...

4 friends of mine and me stayed only one night in the hostel. The room was rather clean, the bed O.K. and the shower/toilet was also quite allright. But what can you expect from such a cheap homestay. But the awesome part was the service staff in this homestay! We arrived around 11pm and there were 8 guys sitting in... More

My bf & I stayed here for 3 days, and I would highly recommend this hotel for a cheap stay, good time, and friendly service. The staff were super friendly & helpful, and in the evenings we were singing & drinking in the cafe. The rooms are small, but predictable for the price, but they were clean with a nice,... More

The hostel itself is not so easy to find, but when you come from the central station, usually staff is already waiting aside the streets guiding you to the hostel. Since it is very cheap you can't expect a lot of comfort. Our room was simple but more or less acceptable for local conditions. Nonetheless, we discovered a bedbug hidden... More

First off, there are NO bedbugs in our place, we've got a contract with a local pest control company, they come every three months, our staff took a course with them, how to spot and control these animals and twice a week all the rooms get completely checked.... After your stay with us, your free stay by the way, we... More

For the price you pay for a room, WiFi, TV, a breakfast and a friendly and helpful staff who are eager to share their local knowledge where you can spend your day checking out touristic places, cultural events, arts, cheap eats etc - it is all worth every cent of your hard earned money.

The rooms are very basic but clean and functional. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. Their WiFi is screwy and the staff don't know the admin password....to get it to work you need to use manual settings with the Google dns (,

This hostel is probably one of the cheapest in Bandung. Rooms are clean but small. The dutch owner is very kind but the atmosphere seems to change when he's gone.. for example they didn't wnt to serve me breakfest because I was up a bit late (it's just baking an egg..). I'm sure the owner wouldn't have had a problem... More
