“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Even though its relatively new, the hostel has many great positive points: valued for money, great location (Braga), clean and very easy to find. The hostel staffs are very informative and helpful. Very great experience.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

If you're looking for a no-frills, no-fuss, simple & affordable place to stay, here's it.

As with the other reviewers below, I had a great experience with Chez Bon - crew were really hospitable, friendly & helpful (English was sufficient to communicate too) & the place is new, clean & well-managed.

Rooms come in 3 sizes over 2 floors - small (2 beds), medium (4 beds) & large (16 beds) - so even if one's travelling alone or with a partner, the small room will afford a good measure of privacy while being able to interact with others at the common areas. Each bed has its own reading light & power socket.

Toilets were clean though may be a bit limited if the hostel is running at high occupancy. Shower heads may be a little low for those above 1.8m.

Breakfast was decent - eggs & bread (numerous spreads available) with tea & coffee.

WiFi was fast and consistent.

Location was in the heritage area of Bandung, so it was a little far from the shopping areas (a mall in Jalan Brage was under renovation when I visited). But for me, this was no issue as it was near to the train station (10-15 minutes walk) and Jalan Asia Afrika (where I had a morning walking tour with Bandung Trails).

So for about Rp120,000 a night, it's very much worth it, nothing to complain.

Very good place to stay in Bandung. Locals informed me about this hostel and i can recommend it. It's very clean, the staff is really friendly and helpfull. Price-quality wise absolutely the best. The location itself is also really central and it's easy to find a good restaurant

The hostel was comfy and the crews were so friendly. The rooms, bathrooms and toilets were very clean. You can have a breakfast at rooftop (that was my favorite).

If you want to stay there, it will be better to walk in check-in. Beside of the discounts, the website is still not working well, so the prices was different from the real price that you should paid (and the hostel is not kinda mart that allowed you to pay the lowest price :))

But overall, this hostel is very highly recomended :)
