It's not a hostel, it's now a hotel. They are building the hostel alongside it at the moment. It's ok. The rooms are small and windowless. WiFi works once tweaked and the young lady on the desk is a positive delight. They ask 350,000 a night for the rooms but are open to a wee bit of bargaining depending on... More

this hotel is not the "new legend hostel" it is closed allready. The hotel is overpriced (we paid 200rp for a dirty smelling room without a window). The staff was very friendly but the owner is hardcore. I never had it, that i can´t leave my luggage in the hotel after check out time until my bus is leaving. The... More

If you want to stay in this hostel, don’t think that you will stay in the similar room, what is in picture. No. Those kinds of rooms are in New legend hotel, what is next to the hostel. We found this hostel, directly in Makassar and stay there only for one night. We got room, with AC and bathroom. It... More

Don't bother to check in this hostel, I only spent one night here with my friends and I felt disgusted! Actually we wanted to cancel our booking in this hotel (well, at first glance in front of the hotel, we all changed our mind to stay on that place), but then the manager got angry and yelled at us, she...

For location, it is excellence - few minutes walk to the airport shuttle bus, 10 minutes walk to the main shopping belt and the touris attractions (including Fort Rotterdam, Losari Beach, pier to the small resort islands. The rooms are very small and no window and not so clean. Some rooms do not have fan (only exhausted fan). For the... More

This hostel is by far the worst i stayed during my trip in Indonesia.I chose to stay there primarily because of the cheap price and because it was listed in LP.I am not fussy about accommodation so i didn't mind the dirt or the fact that the place is badly if not at all maintained.But i got beaten really badly...

We stayed there one night and we got bitten by fleas. They said they would give us a fan but they hadn't and we finally had to pay more for a so called "superior room" with poor AC almost not working because windows on the street don't really close. Moreover, the common bathroom is really not maintained : nothing to... More

We stayed there for one night following the LP's advice. For the price (125k), the room was really not good: dirty, noisy and a breakfast full of ants... Avoid it if you can, and prefer other hostels on the nearest streets (Favourite hotel for example)
