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

It's the cheapest and cleanest place to stay in Malang! As a couple we have decided to stay in a bungalow because we are usually not really kin on dortoirs and also because, in the bungalow,for 2 people,the cost was 165rupie included breakfast and staying in the dortoirs would have cost us 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

We had an amazing rooftop view of a wildfire show at night here, it was so nice to watch!!! Very close to the train station which was great for a 5 minute walk when I arrived at 4 am. I got checked in and it was easy, but sadly at 4 am the religious chants are coming from the mosques... More

Hello Matt, thank you for your review. Although your comments/suggestions/remarks, we are happy we still got 4 out of 5 stars. To take responsibility, herewith a few remarks form our side. 1. Indonesia is a Muslim community. The thing with the mosques is that they are supposed to be heard, also in hotels. That in addition to that, indeed our... More

Beautiful hostel and bar on a rooftop in centre of Malang. The staff was very helpful. In hostel you can take organized tour to Bromo volcano that would take you to all best places of route or rent a jeep in a ground floor of hostel for your own trip to Bromo.

Our stay at Kampong Tourists Gazebo was very satisfying. Not only is the gazebo an interesting concept and very cozy, but the rooftop itself offers great morning and evening views. The well stocked (and decently priced) bar/cafe adds to the relaxed environment. While our stay went smooth as we are early risers, it should be mentioned that the surrounding roads... More

This is a really cool place to stay for a couple of nights. It is situated on the roof of another hotel (Helios), is very basic, but has a nice bar/restaurant. View from the roof over Malang is cool.
