Brand new and sleek hostel”

Konko was my 1st hostel experience in Jakarta and i must say it was GREAT exp! the place only 10mins walk from Gambir st., Konko using shophouse at Kebon Sirih raya (next to Kedai Pelangi - makassar resto), chic and trendy place (funny mural everywhere), clean, they even have hairdryer (!!) at the bathroom. i booked for female dorm without bathroom, but since its located at 4th floor - i asked for lvl 2 dorm with ensuite bathroom, they upgrade me for free YAY (thanks to Aish <3). and the owner is really nice too - still awake and quite chatty on 4am :D will stay here again if i need to catch 1st train ^^

Friendly Staff & Clean Backpackers Hostel”

I recently stayed in Konko Hostel with my partner. Enjoyed my breakfast under the hostel and the chef was very nice and friendly too! During my stay, I discovered the Sate Khas Senayan, amazing street food, and also introduced to a great tour guide to the Thousand Islands by the Konko Hostel staff. It's best to seek for suggestions on where to go and eat from the staff. They are really helpful and all their recommendations are good!

Great value of money ”

My first time of hostel experience in Indonesia. This is a brand new hostel, location is quite good in the very central, close to all big shopping malls and restaurants. Staff can speak good English and are also friendly, overall worth of the money I spent! Pros: cheap, location, thoughtful touches( you can buy toothpaste, rent tower all at cheap price), choice of ensuit bathroom room which is super for girls! Strong enough AC, ok standard mattress, friendly staff, next door is a restaurant. Cons: not as clean as I expected. This part I think the management need to improve the maintenance. They didn’t do cleaning per day, once I found lipstick stain on the duvet cover as well as unknown stain on the bed sheet. Hair in the bathroom since day I checked in till 3 nites after. Room is not spacious enough (however the bathroom is quite big), perhaps a 26inch suitcase will not fit in the room. There’s no 3 beds of room type here which still listed on agoda. However it’s still a nice place for solo travelers who would like to try hostel in jkt or with budget. I would stay again which I’ve extended 2 more nights right after!

Really good affordable hostel”

Pros: - good location if you want to be in central Jakarta - the queen pod was very big and spacious - comfy beds - blind for privacy - room was always cool - bathrooms were clean - WiFi connection was good - you could refill your water bottles - great restaurant two doors down. Cons: - at no fault of the hostel our taxi drive couldn’t find the hostel. However he wasn’t using a sat Nav and only went off the address on Agoda. Once we called the hostel they were able to direct the driver to where we needed to go.

Quirky hostel with excellent location”

I stayed in two different kinds of room, first the four-person dorm and later the single deluxe room. The room though not big has a free locker with you can stash your baggage and also a rental locker with lock. The toilet is fairly clean though the hairdryer and soap dispenser did not work in level 3’s public toilet. The single deluxe room also has a slight damp odor. Location wise it’s perfect for travelers arriving or departing Jakarta using the train, with Gambir Station just ten minutes walk away. Gondangdia Station is about three minutes away and you can ride it to Manggarai and transfer to the airport rail link. The hostel is also not far from the National Monument, National Gallery of Indonesia, and the shopping district near the city hall.

Great hostel!”

I stayed at Konko for just over a week (after extending my stay) while waiting for my visa extension. The staff are super friendly and happy to help with whatever you need. It’s very clean and the beds are comfortable. Facilities very good and the breakfast very tasty, I enjoyed the fish and chips lunch as well. I’ve been travelling SE Asia for 4 months and this is my favourite by far!

Trendy hostel in the middle of Jakarta ”

The hostel is a heaven compare to the surround chaotic scenes n streets. The air con was always enough (an important point to note that it’s always too hot in Jakarta even inside the malls). I like the common room also and love the play station that offer PES games. One minor point is that I think cleanliness can be improved as I could find some hairs n dust on my bed when I first arrived.

Extremely helpful and nice staffs!”

This hostel has 5G free Wifi! - not many hostels or hotels I stayed in had this. I stayed in many hostels around the world and this will have to be one of the best I have every stayed in. The hostel staffs were very helpful and understanding, the facility were really clean and very well designed. Bathrooms were private and quite tuck away. I would like to particularly thanks one of the staff in particular, Aish. She was an exceptional staff member, she even took me to Istiqlal Mosque, after her work while she was fasting for an entire day! Couldn't asked for more really. A Great stay.

Very lovely staff. I took a little longer at the airport than expected so they texted me to make sure I'm okay - a high standard of service that I would have greatly appreciated if something had gone wrong. The rooms are small but modern (like the entire facility) and the beds come with blinds. It's not the most sociable hostel but you will be able to meet people if you try. The location is perfect, right next to Gambir station as well as the national monument and museum. I'll likely book again if I decide to stay another night in Jakarta before my flight home.

Nice Hostel near Gambir train station”

Pros: 1. Near to Gambir train station. It's about 8 minutes car ride. 2. Near to food vendors and restaurant. Opposite road of the hostel there is KFC restaurant whilst Nasi Goreng Kebon Sirih just walking distance from the Hostel. 3. Very clean and comfy hostel. 4. The staffs was very friendly and helpful especially when they lend me to use their phone cable as mine was faulty. 5. Grab/Gojek or any other e-hailing provider will be easy to find this hostel. Cons: 1. The lobby for check-in is located on the 2nd floor. So for those whose carrying heavy luggage will a bit difficult for them to bring it up as there is no lift. But you can put your luggage and be sure there is no valuable goods inside the luggage their store room on the 1st floor with your own risk. 2. I think the guest room is located starting on the 3rd floor so it is not suitable for old people to stay. 3. I don't like the soap and shampoo provided in the bathroom as it's make your skin and hair dry.

Clean and city center hostel”

I arrived here early in the morning (7AM) and check in through using the confusing booking code. The bathroom provided in each floor is not sufficient IMHO, since they provided only 3 bathroom for more than 20 people in each floor. I like the automated curtain in each capsule, the universal adaptor in each capsule and the overall ambience reflects the atmosphere of Japan where you have to take off the shoes in front of the hostel. There are restaurant at the first floor as well and you can use their table to do work and enjoy the food. There’s also cheap food nearby as well and it’s location is near the station and public transportation system. Overall: I would recommend the hotel to my friends :)

Close to monas (Jakarta icon), near Gambir station (there're train station to other cities, and also public bus to airport), walking distance to Aryaduta Hotel, if you have a meeting there. New and good design. Room is quite small, but value for money if you just want to sleep. There're lockers in dorm type room, so you can keep your belonging safe (but bring your own padlock).

Pros: strategic location, bright color and light interior, easy to get some good foods at the 1st fl or from Pelangi restaurant. While KFC is just nearby too. Friendly hostel receptionists and cleaning service boys. I jumped into the cozy airport train to BNI CITY station and then booked a car with Gojek app. From the airport to the hostel is very convenient. Cons: I was welcomed by a stink smell when I enter the room aisle at 3rd floor. I think there's a poor exhaust fan at the aisle of the 3rd fl.

Great hostel”

I spent two nights here and had a great stay. The 6-bed-dorm is a little small, preferred the bigger one. Lots of space for luggage in lockers in the beds. Strong mothball smell though. Very clean hostel and facilities. Free water refill as well as tea and coffee and great hangout areas. They even have a fitness room with mats, weights and TRX. Very good Wi-Fi. Location is very close to Gambir station, Monas and Museum Nasional and Gallery Nasional but a little far from old town. All in all a great place to stay.
