Good points- free water, ac works well, wifi in the rooms and world out, close to train station (10 min walk) plus next door to a snack shop. Bad points- no toilet paper, squat toilets, not very clean, mattresses still have plastic coverings so noisy, owners speak very little English, could not tell me any information about the local area...

Advertised for 100,000 but they suddenly put on the 10% tax. Rooms are clean, Beds are reasonably new and comfortable Wifi is not very good on the 2nd floor and the LAN lines that are wired into the room don't work which is a pity. Water is provided and there is a thermos for hot water. Bathrooms are clean and... More

First I took this hotel because it showed 100,000idr only at the banner outside. The reception was up-stair in the second floor and the man said... More

The location is great - only 15 minutes walk to the Poncol (main) Rail Station, near the Lawang Sewn Building, 10 minutes walk tothe Paragon Shopping Mall and DP Mall along the commercial stripe. The premise owe 2 floors on top of the a convenience store. The common... More

this hostel is good enough, because in first floor they have 24 hour minimarket, and the location is centrally in Semarang city, really near to Tugu Muda, Paragon mall, and also Lawang Sewu Building. The Room is not so Big, no Television inside and we must share the bathroom for some room. But the price is good

The owner or manager who speaks good English is very nice if you are a westerner as he gave me a map and will help you out. The location is ok as it's about a 5 or 10 minute walk from the 1,000 door building, the big paragon mall and a smaller mall with a Carrefour but its NOT walking... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover. That's my impression when I saw photo of the hotel at web, but when I saw it with myself, I feel like my own home. The owner is so friendly, he allow me to use his bathroom even before I'm check in and put my stuff for a while when I'm already check... More
