Typical backpacker joint
Jalan Paledang 48, Bogor T: (0251) 323 246 F: (0251) 339 042
There's a choice of upstairs or downstairs, private cold water bathroom or shared at this classic backpacker place not far from the botanical gardens.
The cheapest rooms are downstairs and are quite dark and don't have views or the great common area that the upstairs rooms have. Also, the toilets downstairs are of the squat variety which may not appeal to all. On the upstairs terrace there are stunning views across Bogor towards Gunung Salak especially in the mornings and evening when there are fewer clouds. Cheap meals can be provided here and unlimited WiFi is available for an extra 10,000 rupiah.
