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 traveling since years round asia and we slept on many cheap hostels but this one tops the category of the most disgusting. The rooms are windowless and the air is... More

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)

As this hostel was one of the cheaper options in Makassar and I just had to spend one night in Makassar, I chose this hostel as it was mentioned in the LP guide. I don't recommend the hostel at all. The hostel interior looks like it hasn't been touched and maintained since the first day it opened, which might be... More

Let's be realistic; New Legend Hostel is very cheap compared to the other hotels in Makassar, but I don't think this is a place to stay for more then one night. At 110,000 Rp per night for a double room with fan you can't complain (less than half compared to other hotels), but the rooms are poorly maintained and very... More

We ended up in this hostel because it was one of the few cheap options in Makassar and we just needed a place to spend the night. However, we don't recommend this for an extended stay as hostel as it is not clean and the service is really bad. So if you can afford something else, don't bother coming here.
