We're a family home. 30 mins from the airport. 15 mins from the historic old town (Batavia). 50 mins from the city centre. Our homestay is perfect for travellers who are in Jakarta for a short transit.
Our homestay is for travellers who enjoy local experience. We're within walking distance to restaurants, a large mall and ATMs.

Interaction with Guests
We enjoy helping our guests. We like to learn about their background and motivation to travel in Indonesia.
Unlike the notorious backpacking area Jalan Jaksa, we're in a safe, gated neighbourhood.

We had a very pleasant stay at Hendry's hippo homestay. We felt very welcome. We received good information in advance with directions to the house. The breakfast was really great, authentic! And the whole family and staff made us feel like home. Also, Hendry helpt us out we're he could during our stay in Jakarta!
Was only a short stay but Herdry was very helpful and friendly! Place was nice and clean!
Although the house is in the north of Jakarta, but it is easy to reach by public transportation or taxi. And 5 minutes walk to the shopping mall nearby.
What surprises me most is that they invited me to Hendry's sister's birthday party. His family and friends are very friendly. Although I don't understand Bahasa Indonesia, but I did't feel any awkward, and they will translate it to me, and they can speak Chinese.
Hendry gave me a lot of help, recommended in Bali and Singapore's attractions for me.They also help me to book a taxi.
About the room, it is very big, clean, comfortable and I like the design of the bathroom. :)
Next time I come to Jakarta, I will book this room again.
