10 Best Homestays In Jakarta, Indonesia - Updated 2024

| 4 min read

On the northwest corner of the most populated island of the world, Java, lies Jakarta, the economic, cultural and political center of Indonesia, a top international tourist destination over the last years. And whilst most of the international hotel chains are present in the city, the growth of tourism created the need for more and of better quality lodgings. In this part of Asia, we have the tradition of homestays, where the owners rent a room or a part of their house to their guests. This is why we did a thorough search and we found and propose to you 10 smart choices for your accommodation. Check out, below, our list of the best homestays in Jakarta, Indonesia.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on February 04, 2024.

1. Heryson Bed and Breakfast (from USD 19)

The host, Hery, and his family try to give a real home experience to you and they are always there to help. The apartment is clean, spacious and quiet, in a residential area with several options for food around, even a 24-hour McDonalds in walking distance. You need to take into consideration that the bathroom is shared but that it is also part of the experience that this is your home for the time being! You will have full access to the whole house, which includes a fully equipped kitchen and washing machine. But most of all, it will be your interaction with the hosts that will make this experience a really good one!

This little studio is an ideal choice.

When it comes to travel, the journey isn't just about reaching a destination; it's about the experiences you gather along the way. While big group tours might be the conventional choice, opting for a local guide can elevate your travel adventure to new heights. That's why I've decided to become a tour guide. During my tenure as the Chief of Media Relations, I had the opportunity to travel extensively and host numerous visitors from Indonesia. This experience not only fueled my passion for exploration but also equipped me with in-depth knowledge about Indonesia, inspiring me to contribute to the tourism sector. My expertise in tourism is rooted in my genuine interests. I have a deep love for trying new foods, leading me to discover amazing places with incredible culinary delights. Beyond gastronomy, I am passionate about nightlife, exploring the unique offerings each city has after dark. Additionally, I find joy in driving around, immersing myself in new cultures, and savoring new culinary experiences. These experiences have left an indelible mark on me, and I am eager to share the richness of each city's culture, food, and nightlife with all of you. Join me on a journey where every tour is not just a trip; it's a collection of unforgettable moments.

5. Exclusive rooms

Right at the beginning of the outskirts at the south part of the city, you may find this fully equipped private getaway. The room offers a large bed and a private bathroom but it’s the rest of the building that provides you almost everything. From a fully equipped kitchen, to dining rooms with TV and coffee tables, a very cozy swimming pool and a nice and spacious barbecue area. This is a good option for bigger groups of people that would easily hang around all together around the pool or the garden.

6. Latin studio

As a part of a large villa complex near the city center, this apartment’s atmosphere is a fusion of Asian elements with Latin American character. The owners have thought of every little detail for your stay, so you don’t need to bother about anything, from your security, the breakfast and the fully equipped kitchen, to your workout at the gym and the pool area. The interaction with the other guests is encouraged, as the complex has many common areas, although you don’t have to worry about your privacy. This is why even locals use it as a short getaway!

Right next to the center of Jakarta, in a more urban area, you can find this really clean and comfortable place, which would suit perfectly a couple. The rooms offer a large bed and a squeaky clean private bathroom. You may also just walk around the area to find several restaurants and cafeterias.
