We had our doubts about the place as it was kind of out of the main road when we checked the map. However, when we told the angkut the name of the place, everyone seems to know it. And it was super accessible that we can navigate around so easily! The three of us stayed in a gazebo which was... More

We stayed in a Gazebo for 2 nights which was a fun experience. There's a shared shower with hot water and a sink, but no mirror. Because the gazebos are placed on the roof of a hotel it can be a bit noisy, so bring earplugs. No breakfast included, but there is a restaurant that serves fine food and is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights in a Gazeboo. What a wonderful place to sleep. The vibe was really good. It's easy to meet new people. We met some really nice backpackers of there. I think you get a lot for the price you pay. Good food, nice place to sleep, clean toilets/showers and really nice people from... More

Stayed 1 short night before heading on a 2 days tour to the vulcanos. The purpose was to get some sleep in the evening which was impossible due to the music and peoplein the hotel bar and the traffic noise on the road. On top of that it was really cold inside the gazebo and no blanket was provided. The... More

The set up of this hostel is great. Kampong tourist offers a unique backpackers experience with Gazebo's (bamboo huts) on a rooftop, beautiful city views guaranteed! Also, after 4 months of traveling we've never seen a double and even triple bed offered in a shared dorm, very convenient for couples! We stayed in one of the private Gazebo's, which was... More

Kampong Tourist is literally on the roof of the Helios hotel, so city noises are easily heard up there, including a particularly mellifluous muezzin at the nearby mosque. I stayed in one of the gazebos, which was comfortable and clean, but it would feel better if they were able to be locked from the inside. For just US$5 more, you... More

This simple but nice hostel is a great base for visiting Malang and the places around it. Location is perfect for city tours. Although the city is small ;) You should know that as in any other place in Indonesia, this is a tourist business and they will try to point you to friendly tourist offices etc. However, stuff is...

It is very good choise to stay in Malang! We arrived late night, got twin bed in dormitory room. It was comfortable, with clean bedlinen and pillow. They have clean shower with hot water. Next day we could stay there until midnight when we started the Bromo trip - for free at the rooftop bar. You can eat delicious food... More

Positives: Great free city tour by students learning English. Great bar/cafe on the roof and nice place to just hang out. Negatives: Noisy at night time so hard to sleep. Staff put music on at 6.30 am despite everyone sleeping. This included a very annoying 'ABC' song for one staff member's child. Showers cold and stop working intermittently during your... More
