Disgusting.
over priced. (cheap/ budget but for the same price you can go down the road for an air-con room with clean beds)
bed bugs
no mosquito netting (for fan rooms), so they got in ALL NIGHT! I was bitten so badly (actually covered with red bites and my eye was bitten so severely it was swollen shut for an entire day!)

bathroom smelled like urine / was not cleaned

free breakfast is no very good - extremely basic.

please do yourself a favor and DO NOT STAY HERE! I traveled through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Japan...and this hostel was BY FAR the worst!

Agreeing with another past review, you certainly do get what you pay for. They are happy to haggle prices, we paid 100,000 for a double, they also can add extra beds.

With this price you do get very dodgy bedding, including a pillow stuffed with rags! However we didn't have any major problems with this hostel, good location on Jalan Jaksa, close to cheap conveniance stores and restaurants.

You get free breakfast on the plus side!

Room Tip: Away from the cafe area.

The only reason your staying here is about budget. Room is small and smelly, not clean and everything is simple. The toilet is not clean enough too. But this is one of the cheapest guesthouse in Jl Jaksa area.

In Jaksa you can get anything like food, beer, meal, laundry, internet, and books.

Walking distance to Gambir Station where you can get the airport shuttle. And walking distance to Monas and National Museum too.

I only stayed here for one night. My fan room (twin beds) cost me 60,000 IDR and though the bedding was fresh, the room self looked a bit grimy with lots of stains on the walls. The window looked out on a hallway so there was no daylight and it was incredibly hot inside. The staff was friendly and I saw them frequently cleaning the hallways but the place is in dire need of repair. There's a little courtyard filled with litter. The shared showers were uninviting. I am not sure if they had hot water as I preferred to use baby wipes and bottled water instead. This place didn't give me good vibes.

However, having said that, the location, right on Jl. Jaksa is good. Good and cheap food right around the corner (a Malaysian restaurant/coffee place with free wifi).

It is okay to crash in for one night but wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay.
