A lovely place which has very perfect location in the Batavia old town area. Even we just stayed for 1 night, but it's worth to stay there because not far from the landmark. It's a new place but the staff is very helpful and friendly, always try to provide what we need. :-) ... But the room where we stayed was too small for 2 people. We booked private room but it feels more like private dorm or something since the door has no lock. Which is for us that was still okkay, but for some travelers they prefer to have lock in their private room. Also the AC was leaking the whole night and make some area wet. The breakfast was very basic, but okkay for one night stay. We love the public area (restaurant) with beautiful colonial-indie scenery from the window most!! ~ ~ ~

Mel's Dorm is an affordable hostel in the centre of Old Town, located on the 2nd floor. If you want to stay in Jakarta's old town this is the perfect spot. It can be difficult to cross the busy road with a large suitcase. The staff at the hostel are very accommodating and helpful, it was nice hanging out with them. They gave us great tips on where to explore and helped us getting around Jakarta. The Indonesian breakfast in the morning was nice, there is a kitchen you can use and it is a new hostel so everything is clean. The rooms are cosy but worth what you pay, bring an eye mask as the rooms have windows and can be very bright.
