Good afternoon, buddies.

A friend of mine, a young Aussie guy just graduated from some uni in Sydney, is set to start working in May as an English editor for an NGO based in Jakarta. Its office is 1 Km away from Pondok Indah Mall. He knows NOTHING about Jkt area and would like to stay in a kost not too far from his office (PI dan sekitarnya).

Does anybody here know any info on Kost around Pondok Indah? - rate, location, facilities, or contact person/number -

Any info provided will be highly appreciated.

Thank you. smile

Not really, and with all the trafics i think you shouldn't consider advising your friend to live in Blok M.

Aussie guy, living in Blok M, sounds like paradise to me? Whocares about the traffic if you have hot & cold Ayam from Passaraya Grande, not to mention Jl. Faletehan?

Dilli, where is actually Jl.Faletehan? How come i don't know about it, I mean, for almost my entire life i've been living in Jakarta Selatan, my parents house i quite near to blok m, my school is around Blok M, so it does my church and i always shop my shoes in Pasaraya Grande. Hmmm....better i check my map. And what is so special with this Jl.Faletehan?

For more info check out-website for a small potholed street at the back of Passaraya Grande, dotted with bars which stay open very very late, home of the infamous Jakarta Pirhana Ayam!

hi BDPP, if you need a kost near from Pondok Indah..I think around Radio Dalam its better..
as far as I know, there're lots of kosts in Radio Dalam moreover for westerns....
the first time I came to Jakarta I lived in around Radio Dalam..
about the rate? If I'm not mistake..it's about Rp.800.000 (cheapest) until Rp.
2.500.000, depended of the facilities...

hopefully you'll find soon

Thanks for the info, Cherry, Laluna, and Dilli. smile

I don't think I myself can leave Jogja for Jakarta to only track those areas down. I'll just forward this info to my friend and let him do the adventure on his own...

Sorry Dilli, my brain is too virgin - never heard of any Ayams willing to pay bule, unless those bules are Tukang Ojek or Taxi driver. Are you living in the upside-down planet? :rolleyes:

No! Sometime times girls just want to have fun! Given the choice, would you rather have a balding middle aged guy who shoots once and goes to sleep or a young buck with sacks full of sperm who can keep it going all night!

I do not understand Tukang Ojek, but I do know that taksi drivers are always picking their noses and do not care for sex because they are too busy trying to flick half of their nose contents out off the taxi at high speed.

Hmmm... Guys and Girls... I may need a Kost by July 2006. Can you help me... I am tired of living on the back of the camel... Somewhere near Pasar Baroe would be nice... Not too shabby and not too luxury... Tired of paying hotel rooms all the time... I figure out if I can hav a kost, maintain it, much cheaper than paying hotel rooms for a few nights...

Pls... if not, probably Cherry can share her room with me...
