Bloem Steen Hostel
Good value bare bones cheapy
Jalan Kebon Sirih Timur 1 No.174, Jakarta T: (021) 3192 5387
This is a classic cheapy located just off Jalan Jaksa.
The clean rooms are quite stark and bare, but you can't expect much in this price range. All rooms share bathrooms with cold water showers and Western toilets, which are clean on the surface, but suffer from hard to remove grime. The single beds are only suitable for skinny people as they are extra narrow. For a bare bones cheapy, this represents good value. A bonus is the free WiFi.
