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.
