The hostel with nice atmosphere and so artistic. I like the place, because of its interior and clean. The location is strategic and helpful for me to walk around near Malang city, enjoying neighborhood, and look for some traditional food. I hope I can go to Kampong Tourist again while traveling to Malang. It's really recommended place. But, too bad...

Stayed at the Gazebo #2 and it was excellent. It was clean, has nice view and I had a good sleep. I have to lower the rating since the booking issue. I booked via booking site "A" for monday but when I came they said my reservation was for tuesday. I gotta reschedule all my plans in Malang & Batu...

This is a great hostel. It is located at the top of the Helios Hotel. The rooms are basic, straw huts but are kept in good condition. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The biggest plus are the commanding views of the city and volcanoes! In every direction, you can see volcanoes looming in the background, it is truly...

This place is amazing. Located on the rooftop of Helios Hotel. The gazebos and dorms are beautiful. The "showers with a view" are amazing. The staff are lovely and helpful. The Helios Travel downstairs are amazing to book tours to Bromo and Ijen. Kampong Tourist is the best play for backpackers in Malang

Someone has put a lot of thought & effort into this hostel, it has such personality & is very welcoming- one of my favourites in Indonesia for sure. Lots of areas to sit & socialize with other guests, good wifi, tours, information, a nice breeze. Also a great menu & fairly priced. Really recommend the crunchy muesli & the burger!...

If your in malang, I would definitely recommend staying here. We stayed in one of the gazebos and it was lovely. The rooms and bathroom are very clean and the shower had really hot water and good power, which was a great surprise! Malang is quite a quiet town with not much going on, or too much to see, so...

Cheap, clean and great location on a rooftop close to the railway station. The dorm beds where also good even though you have to bring your own lock for the locker rooms. The staff was also friendly..

We stumbled across this hostel while looking for somewhere to stay in Melang. When you find it don't confuse it with the hotel below it, this hostel is on the fourth floor on the roof, take the lift to the third floor and walk up another flight of steps. It was a very good price 160 000 IDR for two...

A little gem on top of Helios hotel offering dorm and basic private gazebos. All have shared bath and toilet, that are kept neat and clean. Dont come if you want total privacy and silence. The staff is very helpfull and the breakfast menu very diverse.

I stayed 2 nights in a big dormitory (20 places), but it's well built because you have your own cocoon so the other people don't disturb you and you can easily sleep. The double rooms are nice you really feel just as in the nature. Negative point, the restaurant has two menus, the one for the lunch doesn't have anything...

Dear guest, thank you so much for your kind review.
