“Def Stay Here”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

As other reviews said, SD made my Jakarta experience. Good set up (common area, free wifi, rooftop garden, workout area, guest kitchen, cubby-style beds in dorms!!!). Run by a very friendly and helpful husband/wife team. Free breakfast in the morning isn't much (just toast and fruit), but the free coffee/tea are a nice compliment to it.

Good wifi that actually works in the rooms (in addition to common area). To elaborate on the dorm rooms: air con, free locker, cubby-style beds (LOVE) that have a nice shelf, fan, outlet and light all for you! Awesome.

Cool people stay here too. The common area is set up to encourage conversation and the meeting of one another, has a free Lonely Planet book, a pool table, some free computers and a whole wall with maps and suggestions of things to do/see in Jakarta.

Only thing this place has working against it is the building is a bit old - but, they've done their best with it (the age is really only evident in the bathrooms, they could use an update, a bit moldy and musty).

5 min walk from Cikini train station too.

Despite what is said about the city of Jakarta, six degrees gives you the full travelers experience. The staff is really helpful, very nice and seems to love the place as much as you do after you've stayed there. The shared dorm rooms, which may make you think otherwise, are the perfect way to introduce travelers to what they are up to in indonesia. It has a great, relaxed, but vivid atmosphere.

Host and hostel very nice, felt very welcome even though we arrived to find our booking was for the next day, were able to crash at nearby hotel and come back to have a drink in the rooftop bar before coming over to stay the next day.

Stayed in 8 person dorm which are set up in pods which make for an interesting but kind of private set up. Breakfast was basic but a good fill with plenty of coffee and space to hang about drinking it. Showers and toilets, although shared, are very clean and the roof terrace is an excellent place to hang out, would have definitely stayed longer if not for leaving Jakarta and know where I will stay if i ever go back! All this and still great value for money

LOTS of information available at the hostel. Nearby Cali Deli is a great place to eat as is the small noodle place across the street

On arriving to six degrees I was warmly greeted by the woman who runs it in perfect English. She made us very welcome, told us about the facilities, and free breakfast. The private room that my boyfriend and I shared was basic but clean and nice. The wifi was very fast, and the shared bathrooms were fine and had toilet paper. The restaurants nearby were good. I would recommend Cali Deli for sandwiches and Vietopia for Vietnamese cuisine. There's also McDonalds, Pizza Hut and a ton of food stalls, if you're into that. I had a great 2 nights there and would definitely recommend it. The only downside was the hostel's resident cat randomly yowling in the morning one day.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The twin room is nice and clean but small and without window. Showers and toilets, although shared, are very clean. The roof terrace is an excellent place to hang out in this busy city.

One of the cheapest options in Jakarta, though it's not bad. Far from it, actually. Friendly staff. Chilled-out atmosphere. The rooms are clean. Free breakfast, too. Though a bit far from the more central Gambir station and the backpacker hub of Jalan Jaksa, it nonetheless has a good location in Cikini, near the TIM, which is the arts hub of Jakarta. The neighborhood also makes for a great morning walk.

Room Tip: Private rooms are almost always booked out, so unless you don't mind sharing a room with strange...

We slept three nights at Six Degrees in Jakarta.
The rooms are quiet and clean, so are the shared showers and toilets.
Breakfast (2 slices of toast with jam or chocolate chips + juice and coffee) was okay.

Free to use computers, wi-fi, rooftop-hangout-area, pool-table and a lot more to keep yourself entertained. Staff was also very kind and always helpful.

Would recommend this to everyone who's going to Jakarta.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review of Six Degrees. It makes us happy to know that you had a good time with us.

Yes, breakfast is simple, but if people want more than toast, jam, fruit, orange juice and coffee then eggs cooked any style (and usually fruit smoothies) are available for an additional fee. Just ask Ita in the kitchen

Hope to see you again at Six Degrees one day. Thanks for the recommendation!
