Hello travelers, my place is a cozy bedroom with private hot water shower, on the 2nd floor of my family's house. Feel the real beat of Jakarta by staying at my place! It's located in a friendly neighbourhood in Menteng Dalam, Tebet w/immediate access to transport and 10 mins away from a shopping mall. I'm a traveler myself and if time allows, I'll take you out to experience Jakarta the truly local way. Let's exchange stories over a cup of coffee :)
Our house is located in a safe, friendly, typical Jakarta neighbourhood. Modest street market is within walking distance, and so is the huge Kota Kasablanka shopping mall.
Our 2nd floor has three rooms that are rented for friends and travelers. There's a little balcony, mini-library, and 24-hour access to wifi, water, coffee and tea.
Feel free to use our shared-kitchen and spices. Local food are available everywhere in the neighbourhood for less than 1 USD (eg. chicken noodles, rice and egg, etc).
