This is a basic but clean hostel that is cheap. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is so I give it a very good rating. If you want western style accommodation best stay elsewhere. This is Indonesia style with squat toilets (though there is a new sit down toilet on level 2 with bidet), no toilet paper... More

This hostel is quite random and basic. They seem to have spend the money in pointless items in stead of making it look good. Half gym, half 3D TV room, half living room.... Weird mixture. The room is ok. Basic too, we stayed on a triple room, mattress still had protective plastic wrap making them uncomfortable. We had a very... More

We stayed for two nights. Price for standard room was 165 000 IDR (17.50 SGD) per night. Pros: 1. Great location, near the old city, most of the major sights of Semarang and Jalan Pemuda with malls 2. Price is very affordable 3. Helpful staff and manager. We got a free copy of the 2013 Central Java Travel Guide from... More

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

I was there for a night only after arriving late at around 7:30pm. My friend urged me to take this hotel because it was close to the Paragon mall where I supposed to visit. 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

Here is a first they charge you 80 cents for hot water in the shower.. Really are you kidding me. My double room has a plastic dresser with Mickey Mouse on it... More

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
