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

Needed a place to stay before our Bromo trip. We stayed at a hotel the night before who had little advice about organising a trip to Bromo and was relatively expensive. We were advised to go to Helios hotel (underneath Kampong hostel) to organise a Bromo trip who had a tour office. The guys there were very helpful and recommended... More

Sounds like a fairy tale, wooden bamboo huts on the roof top of a hotel... And when you stay at Kampong it kind of feels unreal. You are on the roof of a hotel in a busy chaotic city but it feels like you are in the midddle of a nice isolated village. Wonderfull place with good vibes and very... More

Unfortunately we couldnt get any gazebos anymore so we ventured to go to the dorm. The hostel is extremely nice and stylish, everything is clean and the staff us nice. Also helios tours in the basement are really good and recommendable. Go to this place, u wont regret it!

Very nice and new hostel on top of another hotel. We slept in one of the three so called gazebo's; a hut made of bamboo. Very clean and cosy and the thing we liked the most was brushing or teeth or taking a shower with a view over the city. We would definately recommend this place to others.
