I keep forgetting to write about Alley Backpack.
I booked this place as my friend requested me a budget place nothing more than US$10 for 2person due to her condition. Gosh, where can I get it ?
At last I got the website about this hostel. Tried to find any review in TA,but I found none.
As I had no other choice, I just jump to the water and booked this place for 3D2N.
When I came from the airport, ... I just mentioned to taxi driver to bring me to Jalan Wastukencana behind the City Hall Bandung. I paid for 35,000 IDR. When I arrived there, I just stop exactly at the front of a travel agency office and viola !!! this small alley in the map just beside this office.
I came and to my surprise, the place is quiet, the neighbours is friendly (when you pass by them, just smile and say Hi for courtesy), and the hostel is clean. Although the bathroom doesn't have warm heater for shower ( as Bandung is collllldddd!!!) but they provide all that we need there.
Me and my friend got the bunk-bed room (at the back room) and it was good for us as we slept without hearing any disturbance from neighbours' activities.
*sigh*, pitty that I didn't take any photo of it :-((
From this place, just back to the alley to wastukencana, ...
and from there you can just flag a cab or take the local transportation (angkot). Or, you can take a walk a bit to Bandung Indah Plaza Mall just in case you have to buy something in the supermarket.
For this price, the Hostel is wonderful and value for money.
Definitely I will be back again for this place if I just come alone or with friends to BAndung. This is definitely a place for those who just need a place to rest in a very affordable yet clean place. And one more !! NOthing beat the location for this place .... :-))
