Good Location, Good Price, Good SleepNightStay & A Very Good Breakfast. ”
Pinisi Backpacker Hostel is a really good choice if you plan to stay in Bandung. Good location though, even it was quite a long distance walk from the Bandung train stasion. Somehow I feel that this hostel is quite difficult to find. It is located opposite the Indomaret store in the PasirKaliki road, right accross the road - Jalan Musaen - walk through the back alley (Hotel Petra Plaza signage) & you will find the Pinisi Backpacker Hostel signage boards. From the hostel it is easy to go anywhere in the city by using Grab, Go-jek or Angkot. I enjoyed the special breakfast in morning very much, even you have to take turns as the breakfast is prepared individually.
Great Hostel! Worth to stay there!”
I stayed at Pinisi for 2 nights at first, and decided to extend 2 more nights because the hostel in general was very comfortable! I got 24 hours access card, met nice staff (especially Teh Evi, she's the best. And she makes you breakfast!!), the whole hostel basically clean the whole time. I walked from Bandung Station from here, so the location is good as well.
At the heart of Bandung.”
A family house converted backpacker hostel. I stayed in an aircond dorm, but the puny 1HP unit simply cannot cool the room down during the day. If not for Bandung's cool night weather, I'd probably have problem sleeping. Walkable from the train station & to shopping mall. Indomaret 1 min walk away. Clean & modern bathroom with rain shower. Drinking water provided. Free breakfast is great. Rather than the normal jam & toast, they provide local Indonesian breakfast, with different food every day. You can also make your personal order with a fee. The hostel provide great info for sightseeing in Bandung.
if you are solo traveler or backpacker that need good place to stay in Bandung, you should try Pinisi. Feels homie and comfort with good and clean facility. It May look a little bit oldies, but service is amazing. There is lady that asking me for breakfastat morning :) nice experience
This Hostel made me love Bandung”
This was one of the nicest places I ever stayed. Everything was still brand new and very clean. The rooms and beds were simple but sufficient, every bed has its own locker. The shared bathroom included hot water, shampoo and soap and right next to the dorm. There is common area with couches and you can enjoy your free tea or coffee all day. Besides the breakfast is really delicious and there is a different Indonesien dish every day. Furthermore the staff has maps and detailed explanation of how to get to the surrounding attractions of Bandung, with entrance prices, which bus to take, how much they cost etc., and could answer any question about the area that I had. Bandunng is not on the main tourist trek through Java, but there are many things to explore and enjoy, so with the help of this hostel it was definatly worth to make the trip.
Feels like in Grandma's house which I love it”
Just 5 minutes walk from Bandung train station. The room was comfy. Although the roof in my room was leak due to heavy rain. I stayed in female dormitory which is a bit expensive than mixed dorm. But because there was bath room inside and olny me in the room, it felt like private room. Hot worked nicely, but unfortunatly the was no HAIR DRYER rental. Staffs were helpful. Breakfast was basic, but quite good since it's include. This hostel offered private tour to many touristic destination which is quite helpful since the location is quite far (esp Lembang, Kawah Putih, etc). I think I will consider going back next time.
the best hostel i ever stay in bandung”
this is my first time came to bandung alone, i'm a solo traveller. what can i say about this hostel..its very safety to stay especially girls like me who are travelling alone. beside that u can know a lot of people around the world who stay in this hostel. other than that ,the staff are very nice, they show me the attraction around the bandung.
-you can go there by walk from Bandung Train Station for about 10minutes -cheap price -its easy to find this place -near from city center like Braga Road -its clean -nice staff, he will explain about what you can do in hostel before you entry to the room, and can give recomendation best place you can visit in city :)
Good for solo travellers who spend most of their time outside”
+ Strategically located in the middle of the city, easy to get around (public transport, walking, online cab services etc), located in an alley but very very close to large street + Nice, friendly, helpful staff + Good basic amenities/facilities (clean hot shower, free hot & cold drinking water, coffee, tea, kitchen, wifi, small locker, digital lock door & security cam) + Genuine backpacker hostel vibe (other guests were dometic & int'l young backpackers when I was there) * Building, interior, furnishings, and linen are not very new or remarkable but decent — rooms and beds are on the small side but there is a common room for sitting/lounging — fair enough given the price. Overall suitable for budget travellers who spend most of their time outside and need a safe, decent place to rest.
Only 5 minutes walk from Bandung train station. The room was comfy, although the roof in my room was leak due to heavy rain. I stayed at female dormitory which is a bit expensive than mixed dorm. Hot watr worked nicely, but unfortunately there was no HAIR DRYER rental. Staffs were helpful, cut chinese staff (or I think its owner) better smile often. Breakfast was basic, but quite good since it's include. This hostel offered private tour to many touristic destination which is quite helpful since the location is quite far (esp Lembang, Kawah Putih, etc). I think I will consider going back next time.

excellent backpacking value for money”
great spot, easy to walk around, there are add on service that will make your trip to bandung a lot easier. there are mini trip plan with scooter to area around bandung for cheat
Great, great value for money!”
The hostel actually surpassed my expectations. It was greatly located, with the train station being close by. The breakfast was prepared for me and was quite filling too, both something I don't expect from a hostel. For the female dorm, it was on the 2nd floor with the shared toilet being in the room itself. Great for women who feels somewhat uncomfortable sharing bathroom with other men. Also, soap and shampoo were provided! Downside - The hot water for the shower were not consistent. It wasn't working all the time. And there are no A/C in my room so initially when I was trying to sleep it was pretty hot, especially the ones sleeping on the top bunk, but after sometime it got a bit more windy through the night..
Cheapest one in bandung, but got more than what you pay”
The place itself is very nice and clean. The most cheapest backpacker hostel I ever stay but also one of the great ones. I stay in a fan room but it was raining in the evening so luckily it was not hot. The only con is the noise. You could hear people talking in the living room whichever room you stay. The night I stay the lobby phone kept ringing from 5am for almost one hour with no staff to pick it up.......very annoying and since people still trying to sleep at the early morning. Still a very nice place to stay though, but not recommend to people who can't sleep if there are noises.
This hostel is located in the center of city. Is high speed internet Near station and airport mall restoran Cvs You can meet so ftiendly hostel worker
An ideal place for backpackers”
Cleanliness, staffs, services are awesome...I feel so reluctant to leave. They made me feel like home. Highly recommend. A backpacker hostel should be like this one!
cheap and near the city”
you will get what you pay, location is near with the city. you can reach this hostel on foot from bandung station.
Highly recommand this hostel”
Really friendly staff. Center of the city (if you are walk mania. You can catch many attractive places) So quiet but many backpackers
All the staff was so friendly, feels like home”
The location was so good, just need 10 minutes (slow speed) walking from Bandung Train station. Everything worthy for the cheap amount i pay. Will go there for my next trip to Bandung
