    Disgusting - should be shut down”

    Backpackers: don’t stay here. This is by far the most disgusting place I’ve ever stayed in. I only ended up staying here b/c I got in late but the beds/pillows have stains (incl. blood) walls are covered in who knows what (looks like blood, poop), webs everywhere, dirty bathrooms. Beware: All the rooms are like this; not just mine. Other cons is that this area is in the middle of no where and there’s no restaurants or food facilities suitable for a solo traveler. Also the staff don’t speak English

    Great value for money! ”

    + The staff are friendly. + Good location on the way to the airport. + Fresh and neat hostel. + Water, Cup noodles for free. + A comfortable mattress and pillow. + There is a curtain in the Dorm. + Enough showers. + Just outside the entrance in the evening fast food. - The air conditioning worked all the time. It is better to agree a comfortable temperature for all _)) Getting there at night was grim. Thank you for all. Good luck!

    (+) -BED IS EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE and i love the fact that they provide curtains for some privacy -Extemely affordable prices with such great comfort -Location is quite strategic, near the old town and several cafe -Staff is very friendly and kind -HAS AC ON THE DORM and you only pay like 30k rupiah for it (what a steal!) and not to mention that the ac is always turned on (-) -Their toilet should be cleaned more often -the renovation should be done as soon as possible -MAKE THE WATER in the shower colder :))

    Perfect, if you need just a place to sleep ”

    Clean, friendly stuff, very small room but you get what you paid for. As for this price, it's perfect, we needed just a place to get some rest after hiking up to Merbabu mountain, and we the places suited perfectly.

    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.

    Bad hostel I ever had”

    I came to Hostel at 09.30 am to put my luggage first because check in start at 14.00 pm (I usually do this for my solo trip. And this is very common for hostel budget). Then the staff said sorry he dont have any place to put my luggage. And He asked me to wait until 14.00 pm or pay more. I never have experience like this as long as I went Solo trip. The springbed of capsule room was broken, the staff was not kind and speak loudly.

    cheap but gross ”

    Bedsheet and pillow had a looooot of stains. The toilets are so gross and smelly and haven't been cleaned for a loooong time. No toilet paper. The sink and small mirror in the bathroom were covered in ant. Really gross place. Not a plesant stay. With that said it is cheap but would rater pay a bit more for a good sleep.

    Just an old warehouse”

    - : The location is at the end of a dark street, away from the center. Reception is a warehouse with some old matresses. The dormroom is very small, as are the cubicles where you sleep. The sheet on the bed had dirty stains. Towel not included. + : small locker for your valuables, Wifi works fine, there's free water and a dental kit, it is very cheap so for one night it was okay, but I wouldn't recommend

    Acceptable”

    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!

    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.

    Pros : 1. Below Rp 90 k ... its very cheap, isn't? 2. They have many showers, so I never wait for someone take a bath. Cons : 1. Far away from the city, maybe 3,5 km. You should take gojek/grab (online transportation) to go there. 2. No restaurant near there.
