About Hippo Homestay

We're a family home. 35 mins from the airport. 15 mins from the old town (Batavia). 50 mins from the city centre. Hippo is perfect for travellers who are in Jakarta for a short transit.

Hippo is for travellers who enjoy local experience. We're within walking distance to restaurants, a large mall and ATMs. Unlike the notorious Jalan Jaksa, Hippo is in a safe, gated neighbourhood. PLEASE NOTE that we are on the edge of Jakarta (in North Jakarta, near the airport).

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Close to the airport. 5-7mins walk to a megamall. Very safe & clean. Fast free wifi. Choice between a (very) simple western breakfast or homestyle-cooking from the mother (she's the soul of this Chinese-family!). Hendri the son and owner is super-supportive and has always good & value advices for ongoing travelplans. Came up with a handwritten lunchplan in a nearby local-eaterie. thumbs up & higher! Will definitely stay another night before leaving Indonesia from Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta Airport.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Very nice place to stay one night or two. Jakarta is not the place you would like to stay more time in anyway.

I occupied a big single air conditionned room on the last floor of that nice house, there was a wanderfull roof garden, a perfect place to chill out after a busy day in the city. the family is very friendly and helpful. They organised the rest of the holiday for me.

It's quite hard to find, but I finally got there and don't regret it at all!!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Basic place but really recommend this place as the family running Hippo are really lovely and it is more a homestay than a hostel stay.
The owner family were very friendly, helpful and took great care of us. Even made the order ready for a lokal restaurant near by!!!
The traditional breakfast was very plenty and we really enjoyed the help regarding how to spend our week in Java and the last minute flight booking to achive the travellplan. Thanks 2 all of you!
