i presume you mean dollars, not rupiah.

you should be able to get a simple and decent apartment for that amount, or even a shophouse if you want. location will determine cost.

keep in mind that rents here are paid 1-2 years in advance. with very few exceptions, you can't pay by the month.

you could certainly get a room in a better hotel in jalan jaksa for around USD600 per month. includes air con, hot water.

You can try contacting this guy oliver.du-carrois@web.de - he has a good 2 bedroom place near kemang - good small complex, big apartment and nice pool. Was only asking $800 pm -- could be good for share.

You could always try Take's Mansion on Kebon Sirih, that is likely about $300 a month these days. There are also hundreds of luxury kosts (boarding houses) around Jakarta that come fully furnished starting at about $150 a month. There is an area behind Mall Ambassador that has piles of said boarding houses... a good place to meet easy women too :P
