The 4 Best Hostels in Jakarta

The 4 Best Hostels in Jakarta
Jakarta is a dynamic city of daunting extremes with surreal juxtapositions on every street corner. Jakarta is a town in the midst of a very public metamorphosis and life here is lived at an all-out pace, driven by an industriousness and optimism that's palpable. From the steamy, richly scented streets of Chinatown and Glodok to Kota's vestiges of a colonial past, the old city is filled with unexpected corners. Newer areas like Merdeka Square are where Indonesia presents the face it wants the world to see: bold and confident. Jakarta is where Indonesia puts on its best face. It has the country's top museums, the greatest diversity of restaurants and public spaces in countless shopping malls that rival anything in Singapore or Bangkok. You can stroll the grand boulevard of Jl Thamrin when it's closed to vehicles on Sunday mornings and marvel at all that's been built. And even if religious pressure has dimmed Jakarta's reputation as a place to party beyond bounds, it is still a city where people enjoy long nights in lounges and clubs or linger with gatherings of friends. There is no shortage of interesting cultural experiences in this city, and, luckily, there are also several cost friendly accommodations to help you enjoy your stay here too.
