Hippo Homestay Jakarta
Ranked #43 of 181 Speciality Lodging in Jakarta
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The family that runs this family is very friendly. The room was very nice and clean and the bathroom had just been renovated. The shopping mall around the corner was huge. The homestay is quite close to the airport and very close to the old city centre.

This is good place to stay for 1-2 days in Jakarta with good transportation connection. It takes 30 minutes to get from the airport by taxi (much less than from other / more touristics areas considering HUGE traffic jams in the city).

There is Mega Mall, bus shelters, restaurants etc. which you can reach in 5 minutes by walk

It may take 40 minutes by bus to reach main touristics places (or 1,5h in rush hour time!).
HUGE traffic jams in Jakarta need to be taken into consideration while you plan your stay in that city.

About homestay itself
- basic rooms equipped with AC
- average cleanliness of the room / bathroom
- nice roof garden
- VERY helpful and supportive host
- VERY firendly family
- GOOD local meals
- average price in total
