Certain parts of Java weren't the easiest place to travel in, nor was the accommodation always the best... But Kampong Tourist is such an awesome place to stay. Prices are reasonable, the staff a pretty friendly, the dorm design is actually so cool and good facilities/location. A real cool place to just relax for a couple of days with a... More

We stayed in the two-persons dorm-room,which was okay. It was very cheap but the mosks close to the hostel woke us up very early. The restaurant in the hostel was nice,but a little expensive compared to the local restaurants.

Fantastic backpackers. Really quirky place located on the roof top of a hotel with the rooms made from bamboo structures. Everywhere was immaculate and there was always hot water in the showers. We stayed in a dorm in a double bed which was so cheap- 99,000 for 2 people! The staff here are great too- Andika and Undi in particular... More

I had emailed and checked availability for the dorm single and been informed it was fine and I should fill out online booking so I did and it was submitted, this was two days in advance. Got here and there... More

This is a very nice place with great views. Its located very close to the trainstation and city-centre. The food is nice and the juices are freshly pressed. :-) Also, it is clean!! Affordable as well: Sep 2014: 55.000 IDR for a single bed in the dorm. 120.000 IDR for a Gazebo (small hut, more privacy) DO GO HERE!! :-)

Dorm room was also good, clean, normal quality for hostel. If... More

The location on the roof of the building is a fantastic idea. Amazing views! But stuff is dissapointing. We came in the evening (we have had a reservation), after climbing the Semeru, pretty tired. During check-in I asked if we could eat dinner. The answer was yes. After taking a shower (15 min.) we came to the eating area and... More

one of the best location in malang. 5 mins walking to train stasiun, walking distance to majority of the attractions in city. spent 55,000 for a bed in dorm(approx 5 USD or less) for a dorm, and very clean bathroom with hot shower. good value. The rooms are all wooden house, a totally different experience away from fancy hotel rooms... More
