We stumbled across this hostel while looking for somewhere to stay in Melang. When you find it don't confuse it with the hotel below it, this hostel is on the fourth floor on the roof, take the lift to the third floor and walk up another flight of steps. It was a very good price 160 000 IDR for two... More

A little gem on top of Helios hotel offering dorm and basic private gazebos. All have shared bath and toilet, that are kept neat and clean. Dont come if you want total privacy and silence. The staff is very helpfull and the breakfast menu very diverse.

I stayed 2 nights in a big dormitory (20 places), but it's well built because you have your own cocoon so the other people don't disturb you and you can easily sleep. The double rooms are nice you really feel just as in the nature. Negative point, the restaurant has two menus, the one for the lunch doesn't have anything... More

We stayed two nights in the hostel, one in the dorm and one in the gazebo. Both times we slept very well, but, to be fair, the dorm was not really crowded. The hostel is built on top of a building with 4 bamboo huts and a small bar/restaurant. The design of the place is really nice, the only problem... More

Stayed with my family with two kids for two nights. Really friendly and helpful staff. Food is excellent and very reasonably priced. We stayed in the gazebos, simple but comfortable. Would visit anytime again!

Kampong tourist is situated 5mins from the centre of Malang and all the local sites are easily accessible by foot. The hostel itself has a very chilled vibe, with music constantly playing and a lovely seating area to chat to people and make friends whilst the view over the city & Bromo is awesome. The food in the restaurant is... More

We stayed one night at the Kampong Tourist. Cottage and shared bathroom were clean and the shower even had hot (yes hot, not only warm) water, breakfast was good (especialy the scrambled egg was extraordinary) and the staff very nice and helpful. We stayed there during ramadan, so unfortunately we could hear the muezzin from the mosque nearby during the... More

The staff working there is very helpful,nice... More

For about 100,000 rupiah a night, I was so grateful that I had a clean toilet! It's just one of the occasional luxuries you come across travelling in Indonesia. But my praise for Kampong Tourist extends beyond the toilet: the dorm was clean, the location was great(I woke up to the most amazing sunrise with Mt Bromo on the horizon)... More

Dear guest, thank you for staying with us and pointing out our great views over Malang and the mountains surrounding it. Staying in a single bed in the dorm costs IDR 65,000, a double bed IDR 120,000 (for at least this year, 2016). Best regards, Kampong Tourist. More
