Oh dear.. I'll start with the positive Pros: 1) Very friendly & genuinely nice workers and staff 2) Very very cheap (paid about $SGD15 per room per night). 3) Decent internet wifi at lobby 4) Good location, easy to explore central jakarta Cons: 1) Filthy rooms. Bedsheets were blood stained in my friends room. Towels provided, though washed and clean,...

We thought that this was a good budget option on our visits to Jakarta and centrally located but our most recent trip in the cheaper room will be our last. Toilet back did not have a lid, no functioning shower or bucket just a faucet in a hole in the wall. Dirty drains, trash under the bed. Stained sheets. Luckily...

The rooms in this hotel are very dirty. Dust and hair in the corners and traces of other guests in and around the toilet can easily be seen. The water in the bathroom (shower/sink) is yellowish-brownish. In front of the hotel is a nosy bar, which makes sleeping difficult before 2 AM. The hotel staff is very rude and somtimes...

It was truly dirty, old, disappointing. We checked in and regretted it so much. Even though it is not so expensive, it's not worth even a single cent. Do not go there at all costs. The staff is bored and a bit rude as if any guest is a trouble. When we asked them about the transportation they gave us...

This place was terrible. Do not waste your rupiah. We stayed all over Java for a month and this place took the cake as the worst. 1. First room we were given had dirty sheets (I mean really dirty sheets, pubic hair, questionable brown stains everywhere etc). 2. We were changed to another room with similarly dirty sheets. 3. AC...

Even due to the fact it is a low cost one star hotel there is no excuse for: Cigarette's cold smoke smelling in the deluxe room 401 and defective discharge and tap. VERY loud "live" reggae music from 10:00 pm till 02:00 am! Construction site in the opposite direction of the window. Holes in the ceiling, wet spots and a...

We left our luggage at the front desk upon our arrival on March 28, 2103 (before noon). When I asked for safety box, the reply was no unit is available. I did not know that my nephew left some of his money inside his backpack and the nightmare starts from that time. When we got back in the afternoon, we...

If you are looking for a 5 star accommodation then definitely this is the wrong choice. If what you are after is comfortable double bed, a reasonable breakfast , clean sheets and a good location to explore Jakarta -all for a very reasonable price then this is a very good choice.
