A very good, affordable and clean hostel. It is located right in the middle of Jakarta and the reception will always call you a taxi if you want to go somewhere. The facilites are good and the rooms are quiet. If you sleep in the deluxe rooms you even get a curtain for more privacy. The WiFi is free and very fast. You can also play X-Box or watch a movie if you so wish. There is also beer and softdrinks on sale for reasonable prices. The breakfast is OK, for a hostel definitly of superior quality.

Room Tip: The deluxe-room has curtains but the other rooms are also very good. Quiet A/C and lockers in every...

The hostel is really amazing, good breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and a great location. The best thing is the rooftop garden where you can just hang out, listen to music and meet other backpackers to make new plans. ITs really close to food places and the owners love to give recommendations and help you organize your stay in jakarta and everything. I can't wait to come back, it really feels like home when you stay there.

This hostel is actually really good ! Clean, nice location, friendly, made and thought for backpackers. Nothing to add, it was really good.
But one the twin sisters at the reception is really not helpful and to be honest, fairly unpleasant. I didn't booked so i had to move after only one night of stay which was fine by me. She then refused to advise me another hotel ("you can browse on the internet on hostelworld.com" was the answer) and then she refused to make one phone call just to check for the availabilty of another hotel ("buy you a indonesian simcard"). Be pleasant like your sister and everything will be perfect at your place.

Thank you for the honest feedback, we really appreciate it.

We're sorry that you found the service to be unpleasant at times. I'm not quite sure what happened there. Maybe a misunderstanding, maybe she was having a bad day? We'll probably never know. Sorry.

There are literally hundreds of cheap hotels in Jakarta and it's hard for us to give personal advice as we haven't stayed at many of them and didn't think much of those that we did stay at. That's why we would always advise guests who need to go elsewhere to search online, using our fast free wifi. Tripadvisor, hostelworld and other sites will give you the ratings, reviews and locations you need. Perhaps we could have expressed this more tactfully?

Likewise with the simcard. We will let guests use our phone for short local calls but would always advise getting a local sim card as a longer-term solution. It makes travel in Indonesia (and internet access) much easier as you move around the country.

We're happy that you enjoyed other aspects of Six Degrees, and hope that you'll come back one day to see that actually both of the twins are nice people!

This was by far one of my favourite hostels. They have done a great job of including a lot of little things that make your stay more enjoyable. All plugs have adapters built in, so you don't have to worry about searching for yours. There is free tea and coffee on the main floor and you can buy pop and beer as well, which can be either added to your bill or you can pay in cash if you have already checked out. It's in a great location, close to both local and Western restaurants, and is a short walk from the train station as well. I really enjoyed my stay here, and I would return in a heartbeat if I am ever back in Jakarta.

Dont look anywhere else, you'll regret losing your time. Jalan Jaksa is disgusting and sketchy. Spend some more money (worth it) and stay here. Movies and breakfast, cool lounge and help from the hostel desk. What else can you ask for?

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.
