Since I usually travel solo I tend to always search for 'party hostels' as those are the best hostels to meet people. For my recent trip to Jakarta I did exactly that and Six Degrees Hostel was the first one that popped up. After reading the reviews, I committed to a 4 nights stay. I booked a bed in the...

Thank you so much for the detailed review, we really enjoy reading the positives, and really appreciate reading about any room for improvement. We'll certainly take your comments on board and improve. We don't advertise as a party hostel and the amount of 'craic' really does depend on who's staying, when they're checking in/out and other factors. Some nights it's...

Have to agree with want the last few people wrote about the hostel: note that the aircon in the room I was in (4 bed dorm) was leaking water and gave the room a funky damp smell, which seemed to sink into the sheets too. Also, one roomie forgot their key one night so the hostel people punched a hole...

Thanks so much for the feedback. And thanks for the heads-up on the AC. We do check every day, but i'll find out how this wasn't spotted by the maintenence crew. And the hole in the wall has been fixed too! sometimes guests lose both their copy and spare key, and drastic action must be taken to get in so...

Stayed here just for one night because we had a flight the next day. I slept in an eight bed dorm. They had solid bunkbeds, curtains for privacy, light and electricity, firm matrass, airco and fine sheets. Also there were lockers for every bed. More than enough showers (with hot water!), western toilets. On the fourth floor was the kitchen....

We're pleased to hear that you'll book again! Thanks for the detailed review - we're glad to hear that you appeciate the little touches. You mention the 'sort of gym' - this has evolved into a covered general workout area on the roof, with people training most mornings, and enough basic equipment for a weights / cardio workout. PLenty of...

Six degrees was a welcomed escape from a hectic Jakarta. A little hard to find but the hostel is air conditioned, has great food and tons of information about the city. Rooms are basic but fine, comfy mattresses and towels are provided. Roof has a small gym and a bar and a great skyline view. Overall a great hostel!

Thank you for your kind words. It's always good when people feel that Six Degrees is something of an oasis in hectic Jakarta! Yes, rooms are quite simple, but most of our guests simply demand clean, comfortable, cool rooms and friendly prices, with more of a focus of the social experience at a hostel. Hopefully we're succeeding! Many thanks again...

We stayed one night at the hostel, in a double room. The room had no window but it fitted our needs. We had just flown 20h from Europe and just needed a bed. The staff was very helpful and gave us recommandations on where to go. The lounge area is very nice with a pool table, some games, a large...

I really enjoyed my stay at Six Degrees. It has everything to offer that makes a hostel a nice place. Comfortable beds wirh curtains, a nice area to hang out and meet people, a big kitchen area, free water and coffee and tasty food. Moreover there is a rooftop bar with daily happy hour from 6-8pm.

What a wonderful review! Thanks for the heads-up on the sink - we'll see what can be done about that. Not much can be done about street noise (especially 4-7pm) but i guess that we should be thankful that unlike most Jakarta streets, Cikini is only one-way! Like you say, the noise doesn't get inside though. Happy travels, and we...

Wow, this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in! (And that's a lot). Such a nice atmosphere and cool spacey facilities! Rooftop bar - with happy hour and nice music, cinema room, clean capsule rooms with comfy beds. I really enjoyed it and the staff & owners are really friendly. If I ever would go back to jakarta...

Many thanks for taking ther time to leave a review. We're pleased you had such a great time at Six Degrees. I can think of many adjectives (positive and negative) to describe Jakarta, but I'm not sure 'boring' would be one of them! It's the sort of place where, if you're only here for a couple of days, you have...

The owners of six degrees have noticeably put a lot of thought into this place. The hostel is clean and the staff are super friendly and sociable locals, full of great recommendations. The dorms allow for a lot of privacy as all the beds have curtains, whereas the common areas are perfect for socialising, with pool/table tennis/a mini-cinema. The rooftop...

Great for meeting people in roof top bar. Location is close to train station and the airport bus station. Lots of street food vendors on the road outside. It's clean, staff are friendly and the wifi is good.

Many thanks for the lovely review. It was a pleasure hosting you at Six Degrees! It's a shame you didn't like Jakarta, but i suppose it is a kind of 'love it/hate it' place which divides opinions. The longer people stay, the more they get to know the city, its people, its food, its charm. It's a chaotic, often confusing...
