Six Degrees is an oasis of calm in the chaos that is Jakarta. The staff and owners couldn't be more friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and they have lots of advice about things to do and how to get around. The hostel pretty much has everything you need, including some snacks and drinks (plus free filtered water). The communal areas are great to meet other people, discuss ideas and trips, and get tips for what to do in and around Jakarta. The roof top garden and tree-house is an awesome place to contemplate the city and get your thoughts together.
The Cikini area has many decent eateries and things to do within walking distance and most taxi drivers will know the street and nearby train station, if not the actual hostel. The rooms are simple, clean, and sufficiently cooled. I stayed for well over a week and found it to be surprisingly quiet at night, despite a constantly changing cast of guests. The showers and toilets were always clean. The place feels safe and secure.
I would highly recommend this hostel and will return next trip!
