Good spot in Jakarta. Quiet, yet close to public transport. The wifi is quick and reliable and the kitchen has everything you need in order to cook. Room was small but sufficient and had an en suite bathroom.

I do love this guest house. After my cancelled flight, I have to find a hostel to stay. Then I book this guest house. Located near from Matraman Raya make it easy to access. The house is quiet, no disturbance from main road. The room is clean with AC and TV. I satisfied with the small toilet/bathroom. Its really suit for solo traveller. Mba Elka and Bu Ros was really generous and helpful. The only minor problem I found was the gate was closed after 10.30pm.

I stayed at the Guest House for 2 nights and what i can say about Elke was a great,attentive and helpful host.I was arrived at Elke's in early morning,the night before Elke sent me a message to make sure my arrival will be at ease.The house attendant,Bu Ros was very helpful too. Well located ( proximity to TransJakarta bus stops ) give easy access to anywhere especially train station or airport,surrounded by numerous facilities to fulfill your need ( bank,convenience store,restaurant,hospital) Very satisfied with the room (as mentioned it was air conditioned,very clean,ensuite bathroom with hot water,flat screen TV,great WiFi and last but not least it comes with a comfortable bed ) An issue that keep bugging me was the mosquitoes,but in the end i managed to get a nice sleep ( barely can hear anything despite being close to the main road ) Definitely recommended room and value for money!

This is a great place to stay if you're looking to be closer to east or south Jakarta. I came via an airport taxi, and Elke had her housekeeper help the taxi driver find the place. It was very quiet and very, very clean. Everything was as promised: a private room and bathroom, air conditioning, a shared washing machine and a shared kitchen. I was very satisfied with the accommodations, particularly considering how generous the price was. A few things to bear in mind: Matraman is pretty far from the touristy areas of Jakarta, and most of the people in that neighborhood do not speak English. If you can manage a little Indonesian, you'll be fine -- but backpackers might find themselves frustrated.

I stayed at Elke's place for 3 nights. The room was clean with an ensuite and airconditioning. I was able to sleep very well as it was isolated from traffic noise. The location was very strategically located, within easy reach to the city centre, east, and north of Jakarta. I got around using public transport. I will stay at Elke's again. Next time I will have to remember to bring my own towel as it was not provided.
