Gambir is the biggest station in Jakarta. It's a central station that connect Jakarta to all cities in Java Island. And it's very crowded, especially on the weekend.

We have used this Jakarta central station for the departure of our memorable train voyage to Yogyakarta. Gambir is as crowded as all train stations in major cities worldwide, but it is, unfortunately, much more confusing. Although there are plenty of officials and staff as in any Indonesian public institution, they were not able to give you accurate information. Unfortunately, we needed to use the washrooms, and they were not clean bur rather messy, something that one does not find even in the most remote rural places of Indonesia.

if you're planning to go out of town by train, this is the central station. A lot of cafe, mini marts, and restaurant inside so plenty of space to wait for your ride.

It's crowded and crazy, and not the most enjoyable place to be, but I did appreciate the automated ticket kiosks and the train itself was nice. There are a lot of options for food.

If you are planning to decide taking executive class or VIP class on Agro Parayangan train, do not do it. Just purchase the regular class. The executive or VIP class does not have WIFI (as published in website), limited movies on the personal entertainment console, decent food and a mineral water, no cabin crew (as published in website), a clean toilet and good leg space. When I viewed the regular class coach, the leg space was the same but without the personal entertainment console. I would not have mind the regular class had I known the executive /VIP class does not offer what were published in the website.

I havent traveled on a train in Indonesia for 30+ years. Gambir train station is easily accessable, its clean with various cafes out side and a few small shops on the inside. High tech check in and boarding passes. Helpful staff insight at all times - I couldnt believe how many ppl offered me help on their initiative. Took economy train to Bandung and it was a pleasant airconditioned coach, interesting scenery and the served (sold) drinks. Awesome.

90's style train station building, not bad facility even though i wouldn't say good. At least it's fine to wait for your train to depart.

Our second day in Indonesia with very little local knowedge but found it easy to navigate. Got dropped off by a taxi - beware to go to the pedestrian entrance not the vehicle entrance.
If you have booked online via tiket.com you can scan your barcode at the check-in desks - easy to find and easy to manage. The computer then prints your boarding pass which you should carry together with the ID document you have noted during your booking.
There’s plenty of food and coffee places (also starbucks, dunkin donuts and McDonalds if you’re not sure where is good).

Toilets are available also after the boarding barrier, which you need to pass to get to the platforms. There you have the ticket and ID checked. You need to know the time of your train to navigate the timetable and find the right track. Our train arrived about 30 minutes prior to departure.

Overall it was easy to navigate and a good experience.

It's not fancy, but very efficient. Scan your receipt over the kiosk and your ticket is quickly printed. Plenty of coffee, drink and food options also.
