“Really impressive hostel, just location that pulls it down”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

As a hostel this place a great - big, spacious, clean dorms. Each bed has it's own light and power point and everyone gets their own locker for valuables. Free water, tea, coffee and good wifi are excellent perks. Staff are lovely and very helpful. There's a bank next door and a supermarket across the road! Sadly it's just the location that pulls it down - it took me an hour and a half in a taxi to get to central Jakarta! This hostel is in the middle of nowhere tourist wise and so seeing any tourist sights in Jakarta is not easy!

Stayed July 2014

Reviewed 14 September 2012

The Kamar-Kamar is pretty new on the market. Thus, hardly any taxi-driver might know it. Look out for the huge "Pizza Hut Delivery"-sign, or direct your driver to it, the hotel is right next to it.
The rooms (stayed in a 2-bed A/C room) are very simple, nothing in it than the beds, a mirror, 2 stackers, a garbage bin.
Bathrooms are shared, not spotless clean but 'okay' (for the price paying). Desktop PC can be used, Wifi is available, coffee/tea - all for free. We arrived around 12 pm, what was not a problem at all for the staff.
The accommodation seems to offer also long-term stays, thus the multi-bed dorms were all occupied with Indonesian guys (maybe they just started a new job or anything!?). Some of them smoked in their rooms, others came back home late (2 am) and were not that quiet we wished they were; walls are paper thin, so be prepared with ear plugs.

All in all, accommodation is recommendable with some exceptions. If you only stay one or two nights, it will do it.

Wonderful place to stay! When i was staying here, it was really not busy because they are quite new. So i had the whole dorm for myself. The staff was very friendly! The beds had an own sleeping light and elektricity point. It was all fresh and clean, new and organized. There was wifi though out the whole building. There was a suprrmarket a cross the street. Value for money!
