Looking for affordable accommodation with established standards? Look no further than the franchised hostel Bobobox. The capsule hotels have several locations across Jakarta, but you’ll surely enjoy the same quality service and comfort in any hostel you pick.
Bobobox offers a cabin with a single bed starting from Rp 180,000 per night. There are two types of cabins: Sky and Earth. As you might have guessed, the Sky cabins are the second level rooms with steps helping visitors access the bed.
Does using the stairs sound like a hassle? You can pick the Earth cabins instead. You just need to duck down to enter your room—as if you're entering a modern-time comfy cave. The Earth rooms, however, are priced slightly higher than the Sky ones.
The air-conditioned rooms feature mood lamps, which allow you to set the tone of your room. Turn on your Bluetooth to blast your favourite songs, or the serene sound of waves and seagulls to help you go to sleep.
Bobobox has a number of hostels in different locations across Greater Jakarta, including one hostel located near the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang.
