“Don't do it!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

This guesthouse offered the worst night sleep in our trip. Noise travels from all who stay here including the owners who live on the ground floor. The beds were hugely uncomfortable and there was no way to block out the lights that stayed on all night.
If all other hostels are full on arrival then consider another area. Don't stay here.

Jakarta is not a great place to find good budget hotels so I found this place to be the best of the worst. They got a terrass out in front where it's nice to sit and surf on the free wifi but the bathrooms stank of mould and the bedrooms are dirty and windowless. But the owner is a friendly dude and I thankfully didn't get any bedbugs.

We were badly bitten by bed bugs in the night. There were many moskitos, alive and dead ones, thus the blood stains (on the sheets, the mattress, the walls, the floor). Many handles in the bathrooms did not work. We did not get new (clean) sheets or any towels. Find another place!

Just as the title says. This place is infested with bed bugs. Blood stains on the walls, bug sheddings under the mattresses and bugs crawling everywhere! I killed one that left a thumbnail size blood stain. Avoid at all costs.

Hotel room was dirty full of hair and bugs. The bed is very old and they do the hostel do not change linen. Service was really poor and staff did not give us a clean linen or towel when we asked for it. Staff had a very lazy attitude towards. There was a lot of noise in the morning from children. Unfortunately it was the children of the family that runs the Hostel. Wi-fi worked well.
