（English）Evy and her family are a pretty nice host with tons of hospitality. It was nice staying in the down-town like area even though I was in the center of Jakarta. I am sure you will feel the energy of the people there. You can also enjoy a variety of local food stalls and good access to sightseeing places and shopping malls. Of course, the area is safe! You can come back alone by taxi even if it is midnight. Thank you very much, Evy.
The neighborhood was really special in a positive way. You would not find a hotel or hostel in such an area where families live, kids play all day in front of the house and all is simple and peaceful. Though taxis have difficulty to find the area because there is a part of the city many kilometers away named the same as the street of Evy's house. So make sure the driver really understands where to go. I eventually got there and Evy's son picked me up from where the taxi dropped me off. I never met Evy but her son was kind and helpful. The room was simple but it all worked well.
Evy was an excellent host! This was my first venture to Indonesia so she was very accommodating and gave me lots of tips and ideas to explore various other islands. Her son Billy took me around Jakarta and it made for an interesting experience. The stay itself is in the middle of a village like most of the other reviews mentioned, so just be prepared to walk to the house. Would recommend.
Just back from Jakarta and from Evy`s house. Want to say Evy`s thank you for warm meeting and very interesting time on the island with Billy. Good location of the house, clean and cosy accommodation. Very thank you allowed me smoking my shisha. Next time my Visit Jakarta i will be staying agin there =)
Evy made me feel so welcome - it was like being part of the family with wonderful Indonesian breakfasts and there was always someone available to help me explain where I was going to the taxi driver. The location is very central and in a very vibrant neighbourhood. Google Maps and Streetview will give you a realistic view of the area.
Evy was a wonderful host! Was more than welcoming and made sure that all my needs were taken care of as I transitioned into Jakarta - arranged transportation, helped me set up my cell phone, offered plenty of suggestions about where to go and what to do in the area. Her family, too, is extremely nice and hospitable. Clean rooms, great breakfast, authentic part of town. Definitely recommend her!
This place is a gem! Situated in a local neighborhood is a nice piece of comfort that is also staffed by very hospitable people.
For me the neighborhood couldn't have been any better since it shows a life that is long gone in the west. The community is very tight here and everyone has their doors open, kids run around playing, and smiles are abundant.
Whoever the owner is... he has managed to do a huge favor for the adventure traveler. Come here if you like to see culture and nice people, but also stay in a very clean and comfortable room. Evy and her family are fantastic and full of information.
