Hostel By Moritz
by: Emma Kwee

Being a hostel that mostly caters to backpackers, don't expect any luxurious features such as jacuzzis and squash courts. For travelers who don't have these high demands, Moritz has plenty of services that will enable you to explore Bandung and the area around it. Downstairs the lobby is a congregation room for guests and personnel who often end up chatting and playing guitar all night long. Furthermore an internet service is available in the lobby.

The staff is the best source of information for attractions in Bandung and the surroundings. They also have a small tour organizing agency that offers day trips to the nearby volcanoes or even trips to Bali and Kalimantan . The owner, a traveler herself, stresses that there are plenty of things to see in West Java , and is more than willing to advise or even arrange any sightseeing in this area. Other than that they can also provide car or motorbike rental if you prefer venturing out on your own.

The dining room offers an Indonesian and Western style menu with simple dishes such as nasi goreng (Rp.9000), burgers and steaks (Rp.20,000) at reasonable prices. Cold beers (Rp.17,000) are also available as are local and international liquors.

The 13 rooms Moritz houses are simple but clean, with a choice of double or single beds and in room bathroom or communal bathroom. The single rooms with inside bathroom go for Rp.65,000, the doubles with communal bathroom are Rp.70,000, while the double rooms with inside bathroom range from Rp.75,000 to Rp.80,000. All of the rooms have fans but as to this point no hot water. The best rooms are on the top floor where a small, flowery roof top terrace provides views of scruffy Bandung buildings.

For safety reasons the front door is locked at 24.00 but there's always the possibility to arrange for someone to answer the door when you're planning on exploring Bandung 's nightlife.

Overall Hostel By Moritz offers basic backpackers accommodation, clean but with no frills. The place allows plenty of opportunity to come contact with other travelers and the staff and owner are a good source of information.
