                Close to Tawang Station”

                This hostel is quite new, currently they only have 1 big dormitory room which houses 16 pod style beds with curtain. With 2 even larger rooms vacant probably for future expansion. They provide 1 complimentary bottle water (although there's water dispenser), 1 small cup noodle (good for supper/breakfast), disposable toothbrush kit & shower gel (which I think is unnecessary for backpacker). The quilt, mattress, pillow, towel are all of good quality & very comfortable. The surrounding neighbourhood is somewhat of lower class. I wouldn't recommend girls to walk alone at night. There's an Alfamart 200m away.

                Age would caught up eventually”

                I first stayed here back in 2017, back then it's spanking new, had only 1 dormitory 10-12 beds, the rest of the space still empty. When I saw they used marble tiles in the bathroom, I already knew it'd be tough to maintain the cleanliness of it. Fast forward to present, the dormitory is gone, the owner created many partitions, lower floor house premium rooms, while upper floor house budget single/double rooms. Budget as in a bed, a socket, an aircond, basic toiletries, 1 bottle of water & nothing else. The sheets are yellowish, not that they didn't wash it, they just didn't bleach it. The bathroom too had yellowish patches all over. I believe it's due to the underground water used for cleaning. Location wise, there's a Alfamart 5 mins walk away, at night there's a few hawker stalls right in front. I had no problem requesting Grab car/bike from/to the hostel.

                Situated in a 15-20 minutes walking distance from the train station. If you want to go to Karimunjawa, don't wait for a ferry departing from Semarang(expecially in raining season). It's better to go to Jepara and getting a ferry there.

                We stayed in a double bedroom with shared bathroom. The room was really small and the bathroom a bit smelly... On the other hand, the staff was very friendly and the matress one of the best Ive tried in indonesia. It is 10mins walking from the old town but next to the hotel really small warungs. I would recomend this hostel for a night if you have to continue your travel and want to save money.

                I know the price is very cheap, but atleast the staff could keep the hostel clean, specially the bed sheet. Not sure what I had in my bed, but it was so itchy,and I was freaked out when I saw a cockroach inside our room! The sharing bathroom also dirty, the sink and the shower doesn't work that well. The reception guy wasn't friendly at all! We arrived around midnight,and asked him a suggestion for food, but he said it wasn't recommended to go outside during midnight in Semarang. This place can't be called "HOSTEL" , since there' no Hostel atmosphere at all!

                Tidur nyaman ala backpacker”

                Dari segi harga sangat terjangkau. Fasilitas pun sangat mendukung (clean towel, toiletries, air mineral, tissue, pop mie, ac, kasur spring bed). Host cukup ramah. Lokasi lumayan dekat dengan kawasan wisata Kota Lama, sekitar 1,5 km. Namun, kebersihan kamar mandi bersama bisa ditingkatkan lagi.

                Great value for the money”

                The hostel is clean, in a good location. Also, complimentary water and noodles were provided. What was strange is that there's absolutely no toilet paper.

                Dirty room and location is far from the city”

                This place is located on the outskirts of Semarang. The room is somewhat smelly (maybe moldy?) and the general cleanliness is a bit lacking.
