Dorms are few and far between in Bogor, but Cendana Mulia Hostel, three kilometres to the botanical gardens delivers the goods.

Located in a small quiet street, Cendana Mulia is decked out with two comfortable six-bed air-con dorms and four private double rooms with share bathrooms in an I-need-my-sunglasses-vibrant-sunny-yellow double-storey suburban house. The colourful paintwork continues indoors with pink and purple rooms. Don’t expect designer decor here, its chintz and frills and suburban Indonesian home-style.

Clean and comfortable dorms provide solid metal bunks and firm spring mattresses, not graced with individual lighting nor sockets, but there are a couple of power outlets in the rooms for charging electronics. Small lockers won’t hold your bag (unless you’re a very light traveller), but are good for valuables, and are watched by CCTV cameras for additional safety (and a note not to change your clothes in front of them!). Try to bag a bed in the upstairs dorm as it has its own ensuite hot-water bathroom and a small private balcony overlooking the street and garden.

Air-con private rooms are clean and bright with a very homely vibe. Share bathrooms are ample and clean. Spacious common areas include a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge as well as an old beat up sofa in the sunny garden. Local-style breakfast is included in the rate.

Friendly staff speak good English and can offer all sorts of suggestions for places to see and direct you to the frequent public transport nearby. Cendana Mulia Hostel has no street signage, but the yellow house is hard to miss.

The same owners also run Hostel Bogor with less expensive fan-cooled private rooms with share bathroom, but no dorms. If you would prefer a shorter walk to the botanical gardens Wisma Pakuan offers good value private rooms with ensuite or for an old-school guesthouse ambience, Tom’s Homestay provides excellent value private rooms in his family home.
