I want to check in at 13.00 o'clock en had to wait a half our, push many times at the bell, but nobody was coming. They didn't speak English, so I couldn't ask any thing... and they didn't ask any thing to me. Didn't feel as a nice place.

At first, I thought I will be queeing for the shared bathroom, but thanks God it did not happen during my stay. The shared bathroom is clean, as well as the bedroom. It is also located near Lawang Sewu (walking distance). The reception is also helpful.

​Spent 2 nights in Standard Room. This hostel seriously exceeded my expectations. It's so easy to reach, just go straight from the train station, right on the side of the main road. It was located on the upper floor of a mini-market, which made it much easier to buy any necessities needed. The room was small but clean and comfortable....

I stayed here for one night as a stop over before heading elsewhere. It was cheap so I wasn't expecting much, but it was definitely worse than expected. I am a female solo traveller who is constantly aware of the risk this presents. Therefore, when the man who picked me up from the airport and brought me to the hostel...

Imam Bonjol is a good budget option in Semarang, although you shouldn't really expect a lot. There is no 'gezelligheid' as we would call it in Dutch: no decoration and all the furniture in your room is still wrapped up in plastic. The general atmosphere in the hostel is quite ok though and the aircon in the room is also...

I stayed here for 4days during my first trip to Semarang. You get good value for your money by staying in the hostel. First, the location is near to main tourist spots: Tugu Muda, Lawang Sewu, Katedral Church, Pandanaran Street and not far from Simpang Lima. If you want to go to Chinatown, order a Gojek (motorcycle ride) for IDR10k...
