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

This hostel is really cheap, but still the services are really good : hot water, good beds, good food if you want to eat, fan in the rooms. We highly recommend this place to stay in Malang, which was open, even if we arrive at 4 am from Yogjarkarta and we hadn't book anything. We even got a double bed... More

-Great dorms- very stylish! Beds have own light an charger plus you also get a locker. Although top bunks are tree bunks high with no barrier to stop you falling- take care if you're a sleep walker! -Wifi slow in the day time, but fast when everyone's asleep. -Apart from that no criticisms- hot shower was amazing (the one in...

Hidden away at the top of Helios Hotel, make your way to the top floor. The dormitory is well planned although the top bunk was high and if you roll around in your sleep, this might not be the bed for you. Staff very friendly and informative with good English spoken. Four clean showers and toilets for the dormitory was... More

This place really has it all! Amazing value, clean, hot water, great ambiance, perfect location, friendly staff, friendly guests, good café...all this in an amazing setting that almost makes you feel like you are at the beach! I certainly didn't expect that in the center of Malang ! The place is fairly new and sits on the roof of the... More

This was my first night stay in Indonesia and it set the benchmark high. It got my hopes up all budget accommodation would be like this. Excellent place and very cheap. It cost me IDR50,000 for a single bed. The dorms were clean and comfortable and may include a climb if you end up on a top bunk. There was... More

I was really happy to stay at kampong tourist. Better even than most hotels I've seen in Indonesia, the service is great, the airy dormitories have an interesting layout with lockers (bring your own lock), they do a good breakfast and great food and rent-out bicycles (which I recommend using) It felt like home away from home. The location has... More

I absolutely loved this place. The dorm room beds are set up in a cool over leaping way, that makes it snug. The showers and toilets are separate, so no wet room...yay for dry toilet floors. The bins are changed throughout the day. It clean and airy. The views from the bar and lounge area are amazing for sunrise. The... More

This could easily be the best hostel i ever stayed at. Excellent location - macro (walking distance to the center) and micro (on the roof, so you can brush your teeth while enjoying the view!). Lots of informative material (and i mean informative, like maps, bus routes, minivan descriptions, ... not just the usual commercial leaflets) everywhere, extremely helpful staff,... More
