“Best Hostel in Jakarta - hands down!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We stayed at this hostel on a Madventure London to Sydney trip and it was excellent! Could not fault a thing and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate us! Very cool place, very, very clean, excellent facilities and very friendly staff! Every single person in the group loved it (and that's not easy to achieve)! If you are going to Jakarta on a budget this is THE best place to stay (and we have stayed in many others - so glad we found these guys)! They have private rooms and well as dorms and it is a very safe place to stay. I think it is one of the best hostel we have EVER stayed in on any of the expeditions - world wide!

Although I live in Jakarta I was forced to find alternative overnight accommodation a few nights ago as my apartment flooded! I'd heard good things about this place and thought I'd give it a try.

The location is good - not far from the centre of town and nicer than the somewhat sleazy Jalan Jaksa where most of Jakarta's budget accommodation is located.

I found the hostel to be top notch in terms of furnishings and facilities and the owners have clearly worked hard to create a really convivial and welcoming ambience. The Irish manager, Dave, went out of his way to ensure that guests were well looked after and other staff were equally hospitable and sociable. The 'hub' centred around the lovely, breezy rooftop terrace where an eclectic mix of guests were relaxing and swapping stories and advice on travelling around Indonesia.

The hostel was almost full (apparently I was lucky to get a room at such short notice) I booked the double room which was spotlessly clean and pretty comfortable - it was certainly very good value for money.

In summary, I'd recommend Six Degrees for budget travellers looking for a safe, ultra-friendly, and warm introduction to Indonesia.

This place is just the best hostel I have ever been. Clean, safe and entertaining. The staff is very kind. There is good breakfast.
According to me, Six Degrees is the attraction of Jakarta!
A pleasant place to relax during your trip!

Stayed for 3 nights in private doublebed room. Very friendly stuff and cool people staying in in other rooms. Liked the rooftop area and chilling out space with projected movies. Also lots of travel books and mags. Nice pool table and darts.

There is not much competition, at least to this day (30th Octobre 2012) neither hostelworld nor tripadvisor list any comparable backpacker alternatives.

But even if there was any competition it had to be really good, because Six degrees is a really beautiful place in this busy and noisy city. When I walked from Gambri station to the hostel the surrounding area gave me a really bad impression but once I stepped into Six degrees I instantly got relaxed ;)!

They have a really really nice lounge at the ground floor, where they serve a basic (good) breakfast with toast & fruits.. and the receptionist is really lovely and helpful.

The dorm room is OK, but for that I price you wont find anything comparable in this city anyways. I really enjoyed my stay here and would love to come here again.

My friend and I went to Jakarta last month for a concert and we stayed at Six Degrees for 3 nights. When we arrived, we were greeted by Mbak Ningsih, one half of the couple that owns the hostel, and she was EXTREMELY friendly and helpful (as was the rest of the staff)! We stayed in the double bedroom (w/ en-suite bathroom), which was clean and spacious. The nearest 7-11 is just 2 minutes walk away. The hostel is located on the main road so getting a taxi when you need one is really easy! If you're looking for a place to stay in the heart of Jakarta that offers excellent value for money, you should book with Six Degrees.

It was a random pick online, and we loved it. Really enjoyed our stay here. stayed in a double bed room / shared bathroom. spacious and bathrooms are clean. Even though the hotel is new and the location was remotely away from other backpackers hostels, but it doesnt matter, because you can easily get an 'Ojek' or motorbike at the roadside to drop you anywhere in the city.

Cool atmosphere, the LCD screen and projector TV area, simple bar, pool, boardgames, rooftop hangout space, free internet, gym, and the best part is, you can order food-delivery from the stall across the road. all yummy local foods! ohhh and friendly hotel-owners too! i would recommend all travelers and friends to stay here!
